Grab your gym bags! You can finally go out for a workout sesh starting this Friday in Toronto. As the 6ix moves into stage three, multiple Toronto gyms are reopening

Sweat and Tonic and Honefitness have announced that they will be taking gym-goers this Friday, with other venues set to open in the next coming weeks. 

As workout facilities across the city gear up to reopen, you might want to consider some of their new rules before you go. 

Due to provincial regulations as well as pandemic precautions, multiple places are now limiting capacity as well as upgrading their sanitization game. 

However, each establishment has its own individual methods.

Sweat and Tonic is opening on Friday and will be offering free classes Friday through Monday, according to their Instagram.

As a safety precaution, they will also be doing temperature checks on guests and staff upon arrival, according to their info page. Face masks will be required, but not while exercising. 

Forty percent reduced capacity, UV light sanitizer, touchless entry and check-in, plexiglass dividers between workout stations, and a shower booking system are some of the changes they will be making.

Other gyms are also putting regulations in place. Honefitness is opening on Friday at 6 a.m. and is following the provincial guidelines.

They will be physically distancing the equipment and have placed sanitizer throughout the facility.

The gym announced on their website that they are accepting people on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Members must clean their equipment after use, and free trials and classes will be temporarily unavailable.

While some Toronto gyms are not taking reservations, others require that you sign up for classes.


Lift Corktown is asking that members reserve a spot ahead of time for when they open on Monday.

Fit Factory is also reopening before the end of the month, and they are not accepting walk-ins.

Equipment sharing will not be allowed, and they are also asking that you arrive with tap enabled cards.


Resistance Fitness in Scarborough will be reopening on August 1 with face masks required, according to their website

The move comes as both Toronto and Peel enter stage three.

This means that movie theatres, dine-in restaurants and bars will also be able to open their doors in time for the long weekend.
