With so many fitness trends hitting the market each season it can often feel overwhelming to choose a studio that meets your specific wants and needs. That’s why we’ve taken the time to carefully craft a list of the best fitness clubs in Toronto, so you can start the new year the right way.


Granite Club


If an upscale environment is what you look for in a fitness club than look no further than Granite Club. This members-only facility is known for attracting Olympians and world champions to help keep them in their best shape for the big games ahead. Featuring aquatics, badminton, curling, squash, tennis, and a golf dome; you can rest assured there is a sport that matches your skill set. You can also take advantage of their state-of-the-art fitness equipment and group exercise programs.




You’ve heard the name before thanks to their loyal followers and that’s exactly what helps SoulCycle grow in popularity each year. SoulCycle is a 45-minute indoor cycling class that consists of high-intensity cardio, muscle-sculpting strength training, and rhythm-based choreography. What makes SoulCycle unique is its ability to combine the strength of your body and mind. The instructors are there to encourage, coach and inspire their riders. And with two studios in the entertainment district and Yorkville respectively, there’s a location waiting for you to begin your journey.
