The diet and fitness industry is very young and there’s a lot of misleading/incorrect information out there. When it comes to health and fitness, the saturated supplement industries, gyms, trainers and online coaches will do whatever they can to appeal to the populus and more often than not, target the masses by selling false hope. On top of that, what are you, as the consumer really buying? Some self-assurance, unnecessary supplements, unqualified trainers and online coaches that just copy and paste.

Convenient location, and so much better than the other corporate gyms in the area! Wide selection of equipment, juice bar – all in all, an amazing place to train!

Since I’ve been going to the cross fit training my husband and myself have seen results and lets just say I’m seeing major gains in the gluteal region 😉 and at the same time noticing a flatter tummy, toned arms and legs. Something that sets this gym apart is not only that they have great staff, both friendly and knowledgable but they also have physiotherapy and RMT which makes the gym an excellent facility as it caters to all matters of your health. And like they say, health is wealth. #takingcareofmefirst

A Beautiful premium designed gym great for personal training. The staff are an absolute pleasure to deal with and are always on hand to make you feel welcomed. There are many highly skilled individuals there to help you reach your goals including various training deciliplines. This gym is never overcrowded allowing you free range to train on quality brand new equipment. It’s like my second home.

I’ve been training with one of their personal trainers (Baku) for about six weeks now and I’m very happy with the decision I made to work with him. Baku is very professional and enjoys sharing his knowledge and experiences about fitness, nutrition and injury prevention.

My squat, deadlift and kettle bell swing form have improved greatly, and we have been trying exercises that i didn’t want to try before because I didn’t know how to do properly.

Thanks to him I’ve improved my muscle definition, reduced body fat and also increased mobility on an ankle injury I got about 4 months ago and that wasn’t healing properly causing me a lot of pain.

I highly recommend him and their facilities.

It is a pleasure to train here, hands down the best gym I’ve been to! The space is well kept, the equipment is brand new, the change rooms are always clean, the team of personal trainers are resourceful and the staff is very friendly. The best feature is the large window which lets in the natural light. I would highly recommend checking this place out, whether you’re already an avid gym goer or looking to make a healthy lifestyle change. Once you train here, you won’t want to go anywhere else!

When you first walk in, everything is very neat and tidy. They make sure the changerooms are always clean. The staff greet you when you come in and they greet you when you leave (especially Oscar ❤️)

The gym is affordable and professional. They’ve got a wide variety of equipment and are only planning on expanding more. They’re always willing to help and assist in any way. Can’t wait to try their drinks from their juice bar menu!

Tracy Zhu

Clean and full-featured facility, locker rooms are exquisitely maintained as well. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. There is equipment available for virtually any training style. There are also services available such juice bar, physio, and personal training. Generally plays music you can actually work out to. Sometimes the sky looks nice out the window too. Costs less than YMCA and is better in virtually every way

Elisha Porras

I have been to multiple gyms and I have to say that this gym has it all! It is aesthetically appealing and the moment you enter the gym you’re greeted by friendly staff who really look after you! If you ever forget your headphones there’s no need to worry, because they play great music to really hype you up throughout your workout.
In terms of cleanliness, this gym gets a 10/10! And that juice bar is definitely a great addition! I mean how often do you find a juice bar IN the same room you workout in?? It’s great! Take my word for it…it may not be the biggest gym, but it has EVERYTHING you need – including certified trainers for anyone who would like a jump start on their fitness journey 🙂

Ruth Leung

This was the first gym I ever joined and I love it because everyone is super friendly and helpful. I’ve tried crossfit and personal training which were both amazing, they also offer partner training if you want to go with a friend!
The gym equipment is all new and the change rooms are always clean. They also have great hours for before and after work gym sessions.
Definitely give this place a try if you’re looking into personal training!

Alannah K

Have you ever felt like you’re endlessly training but you can’t seem to hit the goals or get the results you want? Training with Baku definitely helped me overcome the plateau I hit after training for many years. I originally went to see Baku for rehab on my shoulder and my knees because I was constantly getting injured from working out and it kept setting me back. With his guidance, not only was I able to strengthen my shoulder and my knee, I also learned how to effectively eat more food to gain muscle. This made a HUGE difference in my training and I was very happy to learn I could eat 2400+ calories and still lose body fat in the process. Baku is a very thoughtful coach and puts in the effort to give you his time and his knowledge so you can better your training and learning process for the long term.

Sunshine

My training experience with Baku is a perpetual climb where there is no highest point, only higher. There is no stopping to set up camp when you hit one elevation. The only reason to get there is so you can have a clearer view of your next goal. His systematic but tailored training approach allowed me to reach my goals in a sustainable and repeatable manner. I especially appreciate his philosophy of transparency in passing knowledge for self-sufficiency. It is apparent that he’s not in this business to keep your business. He is in it to set you up for success.

Tatra

He often leaves me out of breath and questioning if I will be able to walk out of the gym alive. But miraculously i alway find myself coming back for my next session. He is very knowledgable and disciplined with his approach in tackling your desired results, not only will he aid you with your physical goals but also ensures that reach your dietary needs to support your end goals. I really appreciate my time training with Baku, the skills and understanding of how to push my body has helped me grow as an athlete and a person.

Helen

I love a love hate relationship with the gym… and boy, was I in for a treat.
Throughout my time for the past while now, he helped me learn more about myself, what I’m capable of and the endless opportunities for growth. I know that whatever the plan was, he was always accountable on his word to me.
My fitness journey hasn’t always been bread and butter and I’m thankful for Baku for showing me that with good practise, dieting and form among many others, that I was able to grow stronger, more agile, build muscle definition and of course, instilled that love component for the gym for me 🙂

Vanja

I have been training with Baku for the last 4 years now. He has made me reach my goals in many different levels, both physically and mentally. From weightlifting to post baby exercises to high intensity workouts to crossfit and much more, he is extremely knowledgeable in what he does. He always makes my training challenging, innovative and enjoyable. Being a mom of 2 boys, Baku definitely challenges me to push myself to another level each and every time. There are no limits in his book just continuous improvement and hard work.
I feel like without him, I would not be where I am today physically, mentally and spiritually. I am by far way stronger and physically fit because of his ability to pass on such amazing skills and vast knowledge. He is not only my trainer but a mentor all the way!

David

I started training with Baku after I realized that my progress was thwarted by my limited knowledge regarding fitness and the science behind it: I was feeling frustration for not being able to consistently lose fat while maintaining muscle.
Baku assessed my condition and after an open conversation about my goals, nutrition and exercise, he came up with a plan that has allowed me to see results. I train with him 3x-4x times per week and we check my progress periodically.
He’s always guiding me and correcting my form to avoid injuries but most important he’s become a friend who truly cares about his clients and always is there to push them to become a better version of themselves using the knowledge and experience that he continues to acquire throughout his career as a very professional, capable and approachable Personal Trainer. Thanks Baku, your support has and still is fundamental in my transformation and I couldn’t had achieve this level of progress without it.

Sajenthen

After having been to this gym for a couple of months, I could attest to the excellence of this facility, as well as their staff. This place has everything you need to develop your body, whether you’re looking to lose fat, gain muscle and to overall be the best version of yourself. More so, I have never seen such dedicated staff and trainers, who are truly passionate and genuine about health and the success of their clients. They are constantly giving motivation and tips, for both exercise and nutrition, to ensure the clients’ success. My personal experience is with Baku, who is highly informed, very friendly and motivates you in a way where you don’t want to quit. I highly recommend this place if you are looking to begin or enhance your journey to a healthy lifestyle!!!

Eugene

Thanks to my personal trainer Baku in Markham Gym due diligence in helping me achieve my goals, it allowed me to perform to the best of ability in my competition.
Baku’s professionalism has rubbed off on me and I’ve learned many things from him regarding health and fitness. On top of that, Baku provided insight and lessened my worries along with my wife during her pregnancy. I highly recommend Baku’s services to everyone looking to better themselves.

Sylvia

You wont be disappointed!!!!

Kelly

Baku has given me the guidance I needed to bring my training to another level. I thank him for all of the hard work he has done to bring me to where I am today – both mentally and physically. He challenges me to be my best, and pushes me to reach my full potential. I feel good, I feel confident, and most importantly, l feel strong. It has been an incredible journey so far, and I know there is so much more that I can learn from him.

Leo

During my training sessions with Baku, I was able to lose massive amount of body fat while increasing my strength. With the reverse diet technique he implemented into my lifestyle, my metabolism improved and I was able to eat more while still cutting still. I reached my goals very quickly and I look forward to train with him again.
