Skyzone Toronto – Goodie Spotlight

March 03, 2015
Capture

Happy March everyone!  We’re dreaming of warm weather and spring flowers to come — but we have a feeling it’ll be a long few weeks before we get there… however we’ve discovered the perfect place to get warmed up and ready for spring; enter: Sky Zone Toronto!

We’re always interested in finding places we can get active with our little ones, and it’s rare to find a fitness centre that accommodates children with specific programming. If this is something you and your family need, look no further than the world’s first indoor trampoline park: the inventors of “fun fitness”!

The Toronto location opened in March of 2013, and offers open jump, a SkySlam court, SkyRobics fitness classes, Ultimate Dodgeball and Foam Zone. For just about any age, shape or size, Sky Zone Toronto is the ultimate 3-D play experience – fun for the whole family!

Read on to our Q&A to learn more about this one-of-a-kind fun fitness centre!

Happy December to all our party-goers!

We’re very excited to introduce this week’s Goodie Spotlight feature – BOMB Fitness, the Danforth’s latest training space offering flexible group exercise classes and private training in a more focused and intimate atmosphere.

We know it’s that time of year everyone starts to let loose; eating lots of holiday sweets and delicious big dinners, so naturally we decided to reach out to a great neighbourhood gym that wants to help keep you on track over the holidays! Unlike big box gyms, BOMB Fitness staff strive to learn the names of all their clients, and most importantly notice when they’re not attending classes – talk about customer care!

What really drew us to feature the BOMB is the fact that they also include kids in their programming – with their after school Fit Kids program, P.A. day activities and day camp for when school’s out!

Read on to our Q&A with co-owner Kevin Bennett to learn more about this fantastic east end fitness institution:
