Going to the Gym in Montreal

Keeping fit is a good way to help ward off the winter blues, and put you in an all around better mood.  When you relocating to Montreal, you may be interested in finding a gym.


When moving to Montreal, there are many different types of gyms, from women’s only to gyms with fitness classes, and others focused specific types of exercise. Membership fees are typical for fitness venues in Montreal, and usually you pay per month for the benefits of each gym. If there is a gym with multiple locations, often times you can pay a higher monthly fee to work out at any location, or pay the basic fee for a single location.

You will find that each gym in Montreal (aside from a few exceptions), offers fitness classes like zumba, yoga, pilates, abs workouts, and cycling, to name a few.  These are usually offered twice a day, so you can fit them in in the morning, or in the evening after work or school. You will also have access to personal trainers (for an extra fee) that can help to get your fitness regime going, or keep it on schedule.

It’s definitely a good idea to look around and visit potential gyms because some will be more appealing than others. If you’re interested in specific classes, checking out the times they are offered could also factor in. Shop around because many gyms offer deals to new clients, and sometimes you can do a week for free, to see if it is a fit for you.

About Georgia

For years, I knew that I wanted to move to Canada to get my postsecondary education. From the exciting and diverse museums, nightlife and dining found in the big cities, to the wealth of natural beauty, I was captivated by the country. I was a little nervous to travel all the way from Australia, but I knew the experience would teach me a lot. It’s true that relocation is never easy. The packing, shipping and visa formalities can all be complicated. But with careful planning and a little help from the veteran relocators (like me!) you’ll be settling in and enjoying the vibrancy of Canadian living in no time. // Depuis plusieurs années, je savais que le Canada était le pays parfait où je pouvais obtenir mon diplôme d’études secondaires. J’étais captivée par les villes du Canada que ce soit par les musées, les soirées, les repas dans les grandes villes ou encore la proximité de la beauté des paysages. J’étais anxieuse à l’idée de faire le voyage à partir de l’Australie mais je savais que cette expérience allait m’apprendre énormément de choses. C’est vrai que la relocalisation n’est jamais facile. L’emballage des affaires, l’expédition et les formalités de visa peuvent être stressants et compliqués mais avec une bonne organisation et un peu d’aide des anciens relocalisés ( comme moi ), vous serez rapidement installé et pourrez profiter de la trépidante vie canadienne en peu de temps.
