Have you kept your New Year resolution to stay fit and healthy? While the gyms are usually packed during the first few weeks of January, it’s difficult to make exercise a proper habit. So we’ve created a guide to Montreal’s best fitness hotspots to help you stay motivated throughout the year!
Situated in the heart of the Sud-Ouest borough near the NOCA project, Hard Knox is a gym that specializes in kickboxing, boot camp, and Body Fit courses. The fitness centre is known for its high-energy workouts that leave you with an endorphin rush that lasts for hours.
There are also classes available for both women and children, meaning the entire family can exercise on a Saturday morning! If you’re not a big fan of kickboxing, you can also hire a personal trainer, or purchase a day pass for $15 to get a feel for the place. There’s a fully equipped weight room downstairs along with cardio machines and a studio for floor exercises.
Ever dreamed of working out at a gym that trains MMA fighters? If the answer is yes, then you must check out Tristar Gym on Ferrier Street near De La Savane metro. It’s owned and operated by Firas Zahabi, who trains Georges St-Pierre!
If you can name it, they probably teach it, from boxing and Muay Thai to jiu-jitsu and wrestling. Their approach to MMA is holistic with a focus on correct technique and creative combinations. Whether you’re looking to compete or just want to burn a few calories, Tristar’s diverse and extensive schedule has much to offer.
With a near-perfect score on Google, Crossfit Rosemont is a great place to join the fitness revolution in Montreal. It’s open seven days a week, and their schedule is densely packed with tons of classes. This gym offers challenging workouts for both the seasoned CrossFit veteran and the wide-eyed novice. If you want to test it out, your first class is free.
If you’re planning on heading to Crossfit Rosemont, it’s relatively close to the TAK Village project in Rosemont-Angus. It’s only a 15-minute walk or a six-minute bike ride from the condo project, inspired by Scandinavian architecture.
Several of DevMcGill’s properties feature in-house fitness centres, meaning you’ll never have to leave the building to complete your workout. At the Beaumont project in NDG, one of the common areas includes a state-of-the-art fitness room with a diverse range of gym equipment. It’s perfect for early-morning workouts before heading off to work!
If you’re looking for a project close to downtown Montreal, we recommend checking out the Humaniti project on Bleury Street. This upscale condo development will boast a two-level fitness centre with weights and cardio machines while providing stunning views of Montreal’s skyline.
