The classes are broken up into beginner, intermediate, and expert, so it's truly made for anyone.
MTL Blog got the chance to get to know more about this studio that Dave Elkabas and Kara Gomes have created.
You can read our interview with Dave below.
Answers have been edited and condensed for clarity.
What's the LVL UP experience like?
We provide the nightclub atmosphere when you're working out. We have amazing LED lights, a crazy sound system, it's very dark — it gives you the feeling that you're at a club, but you're working out.
This concept exists in the U.S., with a company called Rise Nation.
We want to focus on the idea of your mindset as opposed to your fitness. We want you to "level up," literally. We all have our rough times, so this is a place where you come to elevate above these issues.
What's a versaclimber?
At first, there's the challenge of creating a concept [like this] in Canada, but then [we also have] to teach people what a versaclimber is because no one knows what it is. It's new, it's unique, it doesn't exist in other gyms.
The versaclimber is an overall workout for your full body. You're using your arms, your legs, your back. It's good for both doing cardio and building muscle — the beauty is that this machine combines the two.
Within a 30 minute session, you're not only exercising your muscles, but you're building your cardio. You cut the time of a regular workout in half because you're doing two things at once.
On the machine, there's a gauge that can increase or decrease the resistance. So you can increase the resistance and go slow, but then you're working your muscles harder. You're using your whole body.
It's state of the art.
What type of classes will the gym be offering as of March 26 and how much are they?
"We want to have a communal approach. When the class is full and you have 10 versaclimbers in the studio, plus the instructor... Everyone is vibing off the other person's energy," Dave told MTL Blog.
As for the classes, "[There's] 25% off bundles off our website [at the moment], just use the promocode LVLUP25."
"You can hold onto the bundle and it doesn't go to waste."
Currently, the "class packages" are $130 for five classes, $245 for 10 classes, and $450 for 20 classes.
A single session costs $20 for new clients and $50 if you want to have a private class.
Starting on June 30, new "large-scale garden installations" will be put up along avenue du Mont-Royal to "provide citizens with a summer experience tinged with slowness and gentle living, right in the heart of the Plateau," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
"With evocative themes such as La Roseraie, Le Jardin nourricier and Le Bosquet des lucioles, relaxation and appropriation zones, meeting points and a program of activities, make up an inspiring and original path for residents and Montrealers," the Société de développement de l'avenue du Mont-Royal said in the release.
While there are a million and one ways to get a workout in during the summer, some can feel rather tedious. But after going to b.cycle's new pop-up rooftop gym, I can easily say that the spinning classes offered there are far from boring.
Not only did I get a sick workout in just 45 minutes, but I also got to see some cool views of the city from the top of Centre Rockland.
As Quebec's new COVID-19 cases continue to decline and with the rules on gatherings, restaurants, gyms — and more — changing quickly, MTL Blog went through your DMs and answered your questions about what it means to be at a "Level 2–Early Warning (yellow)" alert level.
Can I go to a terrasse with people from different households?
As of Monday, people from two different addresses can sit together at a single table at an outdoor restaurant or bar terrasse.
That means if you're a group of eight people from four different addresses, you'll have to sit at two separate tables.
But as long as you keep it to two households, the number of people doesn't matter.
What are the differences between orange and yellow zone rules?
There are lots of differences between both alert levels, but primarily, yellow and green zones allow for larger gatherings than red and orange zones.
Until Monday, restaurants are only permitted to seat a maximum of two people from different addresses at a single restaurant table, but occupants of the same household can sit together, no matter how many they are.
In yellow zones, an unlimited number of people can be seated at a table, as long as they make up two households.
While places of worship in orange zones are limited to 100 people, the limit is upped to 250 people in yellow zones.
Weddings and funerals in places of worship in orange zones are limited to 25 people. In yellow zones, the allowance is increased to 50 people.
Do we still have to wear masks?
Yes, in most cases.
You do not have to wear masks in most outdoor settings where you can practice social distancing, or when you're eating or drinking at your table in a restaurant or bar.
When gathering indoors in private homes located in yellow zones, masks and social distancing are still required.
Masks have to be worn in movie theatres until you are seated in the theatre. Only then can you remove your mask, provided you remain silent.
Masks must also be worn in auditoriums, but may be removed once the person is seated.
Wearing a face covering is mandatory for spectators of indoor sports aged 10 and over, except in facilities where seats are assigned in advance.
According to Éconofitness, in yellow zone gyms, wearing a mask is mandatory to circulate within the gym and when 2-metre social distancing is not possible, such as in the free weights section.
They're not mandatory when you can social distance — but it's recommended that you wear a mask for better protection.
When will clubs be open?
Bars are permitted to reopen their indoor spaces on Monday, and a club is a type of bar.
However, you will have to remain seated at all times — no dancing or singing is permitted at this time.
Occupants two households can be seated at the same table, regardless of the number of people.
For the time being, bars will close at midnight and stop serving alcohol at 11 p.m.
Are there any updates on interprovincial travel?
In yellow zones, travel between regions and cities is still not recommended, but it is possible.
The Quebec and Ontario border is still closed and it's currently prohibited for someone from Ontario to be in Quebec or vice-versa. However, there are exceptions.
How many guests are allowed at weddings, and can they dance?
A maximum of 50 guests is permitted at weddings in places of worship in yellow zones.
The government doesn't specify whether singing or dancing is not permitted.
While singing and dancing are not currently permitted at bars, Quebec is allowing high school graduates to dance without masks at their proms.
What are the rules on indoor gatherings in homes?
Indoor gatherings are allowed! But they are limited to people from a maximum of two households.
Masks must be worn at all times and you also have to practice 2-metre social distancing.
What are the gym restrictions in yellow zones?
In yellow zone gyms, training activities carried out by yourself, in pairs or by members of two households are permitted.
Training at close proximity is not permitted, except among members of the same household.
Gyms have to keep a sign-in record, and they have to publicly post the maximum capacity of the gym.
At Éconofitness, you are not required to wear a mask while exercising, so long as you can practice social distancing — but it's recommended for further protection.
Some gyms are requiring booking your workout session online before attending so they can ensure the maximum capacity of the space is respected.
Gym locker rooms can open as of Monday.
When could Montreal become a green zone?
The government of Quebec has laid out a reopening plan with the goal of lifting almost all COVID-19 restrictions by the end of August if 75% of those aged 12 and older are fully vaccinated.
According to the plan, most Quebec regions should be green zones by June 28.
In green zones, there are larger occupancy limits for indoor spaces — but some limits don't change between yellow and green zones, such as weddings and funerals.
