    Hey!
    Anyone that can drop some names of good personal trainers in Toronto? I'm going to Toronto for a longer period and would like to put some muscles on me and get a good work-out routine.

    Toronto's a pretty big place geographically... You might want to be more specific in area.

    I've had a few friends get personal training... but I've found at most of the big gyms at least, the personal trainers don't look like they ought to be personal trainers and are ridiculously expensive (more than $60/hour and that's after buying a package of a few thousand dollars)... have you considered Crossfit? There are a number of Crossfit gyms just outside down town...

    Whereabouts in the Greater Toronto Region, downtown, York, North York, Scarbourough, Mississauga, Richmond Hill, Vaughn, and the countless other cities and communities that compose this gigantic, rapidly growing urban region.

    Oh sorry didn't think about that Toronto is a quiet big area, as I'm still not there yet I'm not sure but I'm looking for something that's near or have good accessibility to downtown. But still not that easy I know...

    Shawnathan saidI think the mayor's trainer is taking new clients.

    The mayor of Toronto is a homophobic fat cow.

    While it's true big gyms like Goodlife/Extreme Fitness trainers are expensive, most of them net no more than $15-30 per session. Most of it's going to the gym itself.

    But agreed. Having met other trainers, I can tell you some of them a) don't know jack about training other people b) don't pay attention to their clients' form/technique (I've seen a few routinely on their cell phones texting away) and/or c) have poor form and technique themselves in their own workouts.

    Thanks for the answer, I had a PT once in Sweden and I did pay around 80$ per session I'm not sure but in general it seems to be a bit lower rates in Canada?

    Big gyms like Extreme or Goodlife you'll be paying around $70 or more per session. If you go to smaller gyms or private trainers, they'll charge around $40-50, depending on what they think they're worth.
