New Year

After more than two years of Covid-19 closures, Oakville's in-person gyms are back in action. Whether you set up some home workout equipment, ran or cycled outside, or, like most of us, had a bit of a fitness backslide during the pandemic, opportunities abound to change the process or get back on track. If you missed the social aspect of exercising in fitness classes, or the discipline and structure of a regular session with a trainer, Oakville's gyms are ready to help you get healthier, whatever your goals.

Our ancestors used to hunt mammoths. Now we sit at desks or in cars or watch TV. Our bodies aren't meant for this, and gyms are one way to keep them healthy for a long and happy life. Exercise is not just about physical health, but a critical component of mental well-being as well.

Here, by location, are some of Oakville's best gyms, followed by a listing of specialty facilities:
