Luxury Fitness Brand Equinox Opens First Canadian Location in Toronto

Heralded as the “Ace of Clubs,” luxury fitness brand Equinox has officially arrived in Canada with the opening of its Toronto location on Bay Street. Whereas most gyms simply play the numbers game in terms of urging membership, Equinox refines the whole workout experience with unparalleled attention to detail. Young professionals in the financial district will be delighted to have their own executive hub just steps away from the office, as will those who simply want the best in fitness in Toronto. Depending on your schedule and tastes, it might very well be worth the extra few minutes in the car or subway. 


Some members of the team have frequented various Equinox locations from San Francisco to New York City, so it’s with a degree of familiarity and fitness sophistication that we say this is a notable edition to our always blossoming, incredible country.

Equinox’s world-class trainers will have you in top shape from every angle – whether you’re into yoga or pilates, there’s a program for every athletic focus. Group fitness, personal training and studio cycling programs are also on offer. Too broad? Here’s where it gets refined: you’ll also be able to partake in innovative dance, martial arts, athletic conditioning, sports performance and boxing classes, all run by graduates from the proprietary Equinox Fitness Training Institute.


Expect inspiring, spacious studios equipped with exclusive equipment, like Schwinn’s next generation cycling bikes featuring advanced technology to measure heart rate, RPMs and other metrics to challenge your ride. Floors are shock-absorbent for maximum comfort during rigorous exercises and there’s even a sophisticated lounge to kick back in pre or post-sweat.

The luxe experience continues after your workout, where you’ll have the option of enjoying relaxing eucalyptus steam rooms and Kiehl’s Since 1851 amenities in all locker rooms. But why stop there? Book some time at the Equinox Spa, offering custom facials and massages to complete the full-circle body rejuvenation. 


Finally, a 360-degree approach to fitness that suits your 360-degree young professional lifestyle.
