Toronto - Post Report Question and Answers

What kinds of gyms or other sports/workout facilities are available? Are they expensive?

Everything is a bit pricey like a major U.S. city but you can find everything here. The good thing is that in both summer and in winter, people get outside to exercise when they can. The air is so clean that the outdoors is your best gym. There is a great gym near work and gyms abound all over town. Winter lovers ice skate a lot. Some 40-50 ice skating paths (not just rinks) are located in Toronto with even longer skating paths and more variety outside the city. - Aug 2022

Yes, and one of the hidden delights of Post is the gym on the top floor of an office building where the Consulate rents additional space located one block from the main Consulate building. It is open 24/7 and free to all Consulate employees with a $30 deposit for a key card. - Apr 2010
