Equinox: Where It’s Not Fitness, It’s Life

Equinox believes that “it’s not fitness, it’s life.” And that motto couldn’t be truer. Fitness shouldn’t be a chore that you try and squeeze into your day but a part of your lifestyle routine to help your live a happier and healthier life. In my search for my ideal gym in Toronto, I decided to drop by their Bay Street club in Toronto to see what is was all about. The luxurious facilities were everything you would imagine the ideal urban gym to be…and more. Offering their patrons the latest in training and conditioning classes and outfitted with state of the art machinery and equipment, Equinox strives to help you take your fitness training to the next level. This fully equipped gym is also complete with their own healthy juice and snack bar creating balanced meals that are catered to your nutritional needs. They also offer their patrons high-end  full service spa, sauna and steam rooms, lounge areas, as well as locker rooms  with complimentary Kiehl’s products.

Depending what your preferred workout regime may be, Equinox offers something for everyone. This upscale open concept gym provides you with your own unique oasis while looking out on Toronto’s financial district. From free weights, to machines to a stretching room, their team of personal trainers are there to help you customize your health plan to meet your desired goals and schedule. I, on the other hand, love fitness classes. I find the group instruction an extremely motivational way to make the most of my time at the gym. If this is your preferred workout plan as well, then you’re in luck because Equinox offers a wide variety of classes ranging from yoga, studio styling to circuit and conditioning classes for all fitness levels.

Last Monday, I had the chance to try out their signature Stacked! class with the very motivational trainer Eva Redpath. Based on a cumulative series of high-density workout moves, the Stacked! class transforms your body by building on six targeted movements that will tone you from head to toe. It was so inspirational to see this group of regulars joined together (on Eva’s birthday!) for an intense class, helping to motivate and push each other to their limits.
