September is almost here, YYC. It’s time to put down those sweety, summery drinks and get your butt back to the gym. We know traditional fitness isn’t everyone’s jam, but working out doesn’t have to mean hitting the treadmill for an hour or crushing out as many reps as possible at World Health.
Calgary is blessed with countless unique fitness studios designed and created just for you – the trend-seeking, urban socialite who wants to get fit, have fun, and maybe make a few friends along the way. Here are our top picks for fitness studios in Calgary that you’ve gotta check out this fall:
