Working out is great for your mind and body, though it can sometimes be a strain on your wallet.
With memberships costing upwards of $99 a month, the cost can be a deterrent when it comes to getting in shape. Luckily, Toronto has plenty of no frills gyms — most will cost you less than $30 a month!
Take a peek at the cheapest gyms in Toronto below.
Cost: One of the cheapest gyms in Toronto is without a doubt Planet Fitness. There are three membership options. A Classic membership will cost you $10/month (plus taxes and fees) and gives you unlimited access to your “home” gym and fitness training. The No Commitment package gets you everything the classic membership offers, but with the ability to cancel your membership at any time. And the final package is the PF Black Card membership. The Black Card membership costs $21.99/month and gives you access to all Planet Fitness gyms and massage chairs, unlimited hydromassage (select locations), and fitness training, half-price cooler drinks, use of tanning and total body enhancement, and the ability to bring a guest at any time.
