Whether you're constantly on the go, or you travel quite a bit, you’re probably familiar with the woes of trying to find a place to fit in a workout while you’re away from home. Maybe you're a local who wants to try a few places before committing, or maybe you just don’t want to sign up for a membership because you enjoy hopping around to different activities. With this new website, the reasons don’t matter.
When it comes to finding the perfect temporary location to sneak in a good sweat sesh, there are a few things to consider: whether the equipment or classes are up to your expectations, if there are drop-in rates, and (my personal favourite) if the amenities are up to par (ie. steam rooms).
Doing all of that research in your own city or every time you travel elsewhere can be exhausting, and let’s be honest: no one actually has the time to go through that process on a regular basis. And now, thanks to FindaGym, no one has to!
Recently launched in April 2019, FindaGym was founded by health-conscious and fitness-loving couple Gregor Majkowski and Kate Jurczak after they struggled to find a short-term workout spot while visiting Montreal. After all, isn’t it just common sense that you should be able to access a platform that automatically provides a selection of gyms near you, wherever you are? They sure thought so.
Over seven months later, the innovative FindaGym site is now available in Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec City, and is expected to expand to other Canadian cities in the future. Plus, their app is also on its way!
Already partnered with 70 gyms across these three major Canadian cities, they plan to have close to 100 partners by the end of the year. You can rest easy knowing you’ll have your pick of locations, to say the least!
Oh, and did we mention that 50 of their partnered gyms are located in Montreal? Near, far, wherever you are, FindaGym is your new go-to resource to help scope out the best fitness options in and around some of your favourite Canadian metropolises.
This website isn't just useful for tourists, either. FindaGym is also for locals who are tired of sign-up fees, contracts, and memberships, especially if you don't always stick to your workout commitment. That's right: pay only for what you sweat!
So, how does FindaGym work? All you have to do is check out the website, enter your location, and you’ll be provided with a comprehensive list of some of the best fitness centres in your immediate area. Once you’ve picked your gym, purchase either a monthly pass or opt for a pay-as-you-go alternative (everything from a 1-day, 5-day, or a 10-day pass). It’s the easiest way to find a gym near you, so you’ll never have to worry about going gymless again!
Whether you’re into trying out a few different fitness centres, don't want to commit to a long-term gym-membership contract, or you’re frequently visiting from out of town, FindaGym is the perfect tool for all of your interim fitness needs!
