Take a Peak at the Minto30Roe Movement Haus Gym!

The Minto30Roe Movement Haus gym is now up and running at Minto30Roe, and our home owners are loving it! Back in 2012 when Minto30Roe first launched, we had a vision to create a state-of-the-art fitness that redefined the typical “condo gym”.
Four years later, we are thrilled to see this fantastic facility in action! Residents can say goodbye to their gym membership and hello to a usable, modern, effective training center that is equipped for all types of workout routines right at home.
Minto teamed up with Benchmark, one of the city’s leading fitness and training providers, to develop and execute a gym with top of the line equipment in a thoughtfully designed space.
The 30Roe Movement Haus facility includes three designated training rooms – one for strength training and cardio, one for spinning, and one for yoga, Pilates, TRX and GRAVITY. The equipment mix has been selected for optimum training, using the same machines featured in top tier gyms across North America and we’re are thrilled to see the vision come to life!
Plus, the best part may be that Benchmark offers classes and personal training on an à la carte basis at the 30Roe Movment Haus, so there really is no need to leave home! Classes include spinning, yoga, Pilates, Kinesis training, GRAVITY incline resistance training and TRX suspension training, all taught by certified instructors. You can even book nutrition and cooking classes in the 30Roe chef’s kitchen!
Benchmark services will be up and running at Minto30Roe in January, just in time to assist with your New Year’s resolutions to get healthy!
Minto has teamed up with Benchmark again to create a Movement Haus gym at Minto Westside, offering a similar gym layout and program offering. We can’t wait to see that facility take shape! 
Benchmark offers a host of programs that you can make use of at your own home or gym. Check out benchmarkliving.ca for details on personal training, classes, and check out their blog for all the latest health and fitness tips!

Yorkville Park Neighbourhood Profile: Equinox Fitness

Hitting the gym can now feel like a luxury at the new Equinox Fitness Club in Yorkville. Just down the street from Minto Yorkville Park, Equinox Yorkville allows you to experience a new level of fitness in the city’s trendiest neighbourhood.Yorkville_2048x1000

The new Equinox Fitness Club is designed based on its neighbourhood setting. As Yorkville has a close-knit neighbourhood, the creators of Equinox in Yorkville wanted that mirrored in their fitness club. “What we really want incorporated in this gym is that community-feel like Yorkville has” explains  Claudia Madalena, Membership Advisor at Equinox Yorkville.

Incorporating the community-feel into this gym will make you feel comfortable and at home. Just steps away from Minto Yorkville Park, Equinox Yorkville is a great place to try different fitness classes or personal training, when you want to branch out from the gym equipment at home in Minto Yorkville Park.


“We have a lot of classes to offer, classes that are signature to Equinox. And what’s great about them is they will be different every single time,” says Claudia. Some of the classes offered at Equinox Yorkville are Yoga, Pilates, Martial Arts, and Studio Cycling, to name a few. The gym will also be equipped with a full-service spa, steam rooms, a juice bar and snack lounge.

“We have a very strong focus on functional training, which is everyday movements that you use in your everyday life. That’s why we say it’s not fitness, it’s life,” adds Claudia.


This luxury fitness centre is right in the neighbourhood when you live at Minto Yorkville Park. If you’re interested in a membership, drop into the Equinox show room at 108 Yorkville Avenue to learn more about Equinox and what fitness program is right for you!
