Ask any fitness enthusiast and they’ll probably agree that finding a gym that’s close to where you live makes a huge difference. That’s because time and convenience are two of the main factors that determine whether you’re likely to maintain your workout routine over time. Consistency is key for any fitness program, so having a fitness facility that is close to your home, and meets your needs and interests is key. Here are a few of the amazing fitness options that you can enjoy close to home in the Market District neighbourhood.
Moksha Yoga Pickering – 1099 Kingston Rd
Moksha Yoga is a form of Hot Yoga — where the yoga studio itself is heated to a balmy 37 degrees Celsius. The heat is supposed to increase flexibility, add more of a cardio component to your yoga practice, help you with strength and focus, and more. Moksha Yoga Pickering offers a wide range of classes that appeal to both beginners and seasoned pros. Visit them online to find the class that’s right for you.
Crossfit Pickering – 1734 Orangebrook Court #1
The underlying concept behind Crossfit is to complete a diverse and ever-changing program of workouts, known amongst Crossfitters as WODS (Workouts of the Day). They call their gyms Crossfit Boxes, and if you attend a class you can do anything from bodyweight exercises, to flipping a truck tire to conventional weightlifting. The goal driving all of this is to achieve improved functional strength, so you can truly be more prepared for anything that life might throw at you. First opened over 7 years ago, Crossfit Pickering was one of the first Crossfit Boxes in the GTA, and it is a great place to learn this exciting and varied form of exercise from experienced and enthusiastic coaches.
Curves Pickering – 300 Kingston Rd.
Curves is the perfect place for women to work towards their health and fitness goals in a welcoming and supportive environment. Curves’ foundational program is based around a 30 minute circuit training program that you can do 3-4 times a week to help you gain greater strength, health and confidence. The best part is at Curves, you have an excellent coaching staff on hand to help you stay safe and get the most out of your workouts.
Pickering Recreation Complex – 1867 Valley Farm Rd.
One of Pickering’s most complete fitness offerings can be found at Pickering Recreation Complex. More than just a gym, the recreation centre offers a wide range of group fitness classes for adults, teens and children — as well as swimming, racquetball, squash and tennis. There’s also a full-service health club that includes 2 dedicated rooms for cardio conditioning, a weight room, an indoor running track and certified fitness staff always on hand to offer advice.
