gym

I've always been more of a fitness class person instead of a gym rat. It has been annoying to learn that l could only apply the $500 employer fitness credit to an annual gym membership, but not fitness classes. I'm feeling stupid that l just thought of this:😲 - buy a city recreation fitness pass, wh...

There something where u can go learn about certain things about weight loss and spend 3-4 days just hammering it out to get a feeling for it? I know there are some biggest loser resorts but they are far away i think.

Hi there, i signed up for a gym membership and personal trainer a few months ago with my credit card. It is a 1 year contract. I don’t want to go anymore. If i cancel my credit card is that a solution? I didn’t provide any banking information, or social insurance number, so how ...

Hi everyone, So I'm an avid fitness enthusiast and have been wondering where people buy supplements from and what brands people use.

Hey guys, I'm currently by the DVP / Eglinton area and am looking for a new gym to join. I was looking at Fit4Less, but I may be moving in the near future to be closer to work (Dufferin & 407). I've realized the closest location to this is Yonge and Steeles. Does anyone have any recommendations on a...

On my last visit to Goodlife at the Dundas and Yonge location, the entrance staff asked me to take a photo to add to my profile for "security purpose". Has this happened to anyone else?

treadmill

I've been doing lots of looking. Pros and cons abound. They're all so expensive. So I thought I'd ask here for some real life, honest thoughts. We are both in our mid sixties and would probably not run, fast paced walking at best. I've had knee surgery. It would mostly be used by my wife. We'd like ...

The Costco closest to me don't carry the Kirkland Protein bars anymore... Is this the case at other Costcos in Canada?

Two colleagues went on sick / disability leave, both experiencing significant back problems, with one of them involving herniated disks. :( What are some tips that you can share to keep our spines and disks in tip top shape?

There are plenty of options on Amazon.ca and I can't seem to decide on which one I'd like. I was hoping some of you have some experience with these foam rollers and can help me decide. Never used a foam roller before. If height matters, I'm ~6'2. TIA

So I see FactoryDirect has a heart rate monitor available for $20. I purchased a similar "BIOS Fitness" model from them some time ago. http://factorydirect.ca/icheck-heart-rate-monitor-watch-wchest-strap One of the obvious drawbacks to an ultra-cheap model like this is the lack of Bluetooth. But it ...

I am imagining shipping will be huge due to the weight, so I would need to pick it up, or is it not that bad..? I looked at eBay and it seemed fine. But I am looking for other suggestions.

good

Should I care? I am likely not doing enough measuring of my body and such to know as sometimes the weight is not as important as other stuff. I am plateauing at a certain weight now but will continue to hammer out the workouts and try to intake a set amount of calories per day and increase my streng...

If there was a magic pill that made you lose weight, how much do you think it'd sell for? Or would it even be sold due to the massive amount of money being made from weight loss pills that are just caffeine?

home gym

I've been trying to look for a reasonable home gym (budget around ~500 or so) and couldn't find any ones which reviews. Doesn't have to be fancy or anything or anything crazy. It'll just be for the casual work-out here and there. Found the following: http://www.xtcfitness.ca/strength-equipment/home-...

I’ve had really good luck with Garmin products in the past but I’ve never owned any of their activity trackers so I’m looking for some input from someone who has.
