I joined Fuel Training and I’m loving it! So it’s true what they say… that many cross fitters will swank about how incredibly awesome the training is. I don’t blame them. Check out my thoughts below:
Fuel Training Club
Address: 45 Camden Street (closest major intersection Spadina Avenue and Adelaide Street West)
Star Rating: 5 stars!
Cost: Free Conditioning Trial or $30 to drop in or month to month memberships
Length: 50 minutes
Type of Activity: Strength and conditioning classes which include but are not limited to high intensity intervals, resistance training, strength training, and team workouts. Fuel focuses on lifestyle specific training vs. competition training. If you’re not comfortable or injured, they’ll provide a modified exercise without judgment. Workouts are fun; results oriented and programmed to keep your body improving. Exercises are carefully balanced to decrease risk (injury) and increase reward (results).
Level of fitness required: Regular gym goer
Amenities: Lockers, check. Showers, check. Water, check. Towels, check.
How early can you get your sweat on? 6am
How late? 7:10pm during weekdays
The Verdict: I was sold after just 1 conditioning class! I have bought a month to month membership that allows me to attend 12 sessions each month. The club owner, instructors and club members are all very personable. The trainers are knowledgeable and offer proper technique. The community that Fuel has built is incomparable to any other gym experience; with social events hosted monthly, the group is fun and supportive. The studio is clean and I love the small group format. It’s fairly pricey compared to a regular gym membership but essentially you receive small group personal training sessions. I think it’ll be well worth it! Also included is a Fuel Plan (offered every 3 months) – this is where they record body fat, measurements and weight in order to set goals and track progress.
I plan on attending 3 classes a week, while also alternating between spin classes, sprints, and stair climbing. I may even check out some more fitness studios in my area and I’ll be sure to give you the 411. I can’t wait to see how my body changes over the next few months.
