There are three of these upscale indoor fitness studios around the Montreal metro area. And despite the name, there is MUCH more going on here than just spinning! Barre, Mat Pilates, TRX Barre, Bootcamp, Sculpt and HIIT classes are also offered.
We are always on a quest to find the most upscale health club in the cities we research. For downtown Montreal, this top honor is a close call between MAA and Mansfield. Either club will please athletic-minded travelers, though MAA is the only gym of the two that has a lap pool.
This studio offers nearly 60 yoga classes each week. Enso is a giving based business and donates 50% of its profits to empowering women. The "enso hot flow" class is a Vinyasa-style class is taught in a room heated to approximately 100F and most often has music.
An alternate route to the top of Mont Royal. Our mileage starts/finishes at the Hyatt Regency, but pick up the path anywhere along the way.
The Lachine Canal path is another popular bike and running path for locals and athletic-minded tourists alike. It's a paved, flat, straight route that parallels the Lachine Canal. Most of the property immediately adjacent to the path is planted grass and parklike.
A beautifully scenic route for those staying in downtown Montreal, bring your quads because it's a good climb.
* Pick up the route anywhere along our loop, but our mileage starts from the intersection of Peel Road (Rue) & Avenue des Pins
This gym's equipment selection may not be as impressive or abundant as our other recommended health clubs, but on the upside, it is less crowded. Nautilus is located on the 4th floor of an office/retail building. Pay attention because the entrance is easy to miss.
This massive stadium and sports complex was originally built for the 1976 Olympic Games and continues to be used by professional and recreational athletes alike.
We recommend this community center primarily for its 25-meter lap pool, but travelers may also want to utilize the facility's high quality cardio and strength equipment.
This Bikram studio is located close to downtown and is easily accessible via Metro -- It's across the street from the Laurier stop!! There is street parking, but it can take time so allow for it!
