Save big at Hone Fitness!

 

Fitness is a booming business. There seems to be no limit to what you can spend on workout wear, supplements and expensive gym memberships. Getting fit and staying in shape doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you prefer to keep it simple and affordable, you have to check out Hone Fitness (7 Isabella Street) near our Village Green rental community. The gym chain is a pioneer in the low-cost gym movement that is now gaining momentum in Toronto. We spoke with Jim, the manager of Hone Fitness, to find out how they do it.

 

Our gym offers memberships for just $10 and $20 per month. We’re able to offer memberships for such a low price point because we keep it simple — our gym has no towels and no classes.

Housed in the former home of The Yonge Street Fitness Club, the Isabella location of Hone Fitness is impressive. When you step inside, the first level features a welcoming reception area, massage chairs, tanning beds and a juice bar. On the second level you’ll find clean change rooms with lots of lockers and the gym’s cardio equipment. There are about 170 machines, all in good condition. The space itself is open and welcoming. There’s lots of natural light from the large windows overlooking Yonge Street, and charming exposed brick walls.

 

All of our equipment is brand new, and our space is gorgeous and remodeled. It’s a $100/month style gym that you can get for just $10 a month. Its not a low end gym, its beautiful.

The third floor is filled with strength training equipment. There are weight machines, benches, squat racks and plenty of free weights to use. The gym attracts trained athletes and younger people who know what they’re doing, as well as those who are still learning.

 

We get a very diverse crowd here, but the area is young, our gym reflects the neighbourhood. We offer personal training for an additional cost, but you get a one hour free chat with a trainer when you join.

That free training session is included in the basic $10/month membership plan (plus an enrollment fee and a yearly maintenance fee). The basic membership gives you access to strength and cardio equipment, and the locker rooms. The $20 premium membership gets you all that plus use of all locations, access to the Functional Training Room, tanning beds and massage chairs. There are also more flexible plans to accommodate those with commitment issues.

 

If you’re looking for short term membership options we are very flexible. You can buy a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 month package, or a one year membership. We offer very reasonable prices for the shorter stays to accommodate students and travelers.

 

So if you want to get fit without breaking the bank in downtown Toronto, Hone Fitness is worth every penny.
