Fitness studios and gyms across the city have been closed since October, and with the weather warming up lots of residents are ready to take their workouts outside. Thankfully, Premier Doug Ford announced last week that outdoor fitness classes of up to 10 people can resume on Monday, March 29. Here are 10 studios that are offering everything from yoga in the park to spin classes and HIIT circuits.

Now with restrictions lifted once again, they are back. This week’s schedule offers a 6 p.m. outdoor sweat session on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and a 7 a.m. bootcamp on Wednesday morning. The outdoor workout stations have been set up on artificial turf and each participant is assigned their own pieces of equipment that cannot be shared. Equipment will be sanitized between classes and participants are encouraged to wear latex gloves. There will be no access to the gym’s washrooms, showers or change rooms, but the building’s communal washroom is available for use if needed.
