No matter where you're starting from, you'll find a group fitness or team training program that works with your goals and your lifestyle.

We believe that everyone's always learning, so our classes vary in intensity and are designed to support a range of experience levels. Group fitness classes are available to U of T students and members at no extra charge.

In addition to popular classes like Aquafit and yoga, we're introducing a few new ones for 2020:

Leave feeling calm, centered and refreshed, ready to conquer the rest of your day.
