ALPHA is located in a trendy urban space in the heart of Toronto’s docks, right next door to the Sound Academy and in the same complex as the very popular Cabana Pool Bar. The facility is similar to a New York loft, with exposed brick and an open-concept design. Members can enjoy amenities including free parking, Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV (for the love of the game) and coffee station (just to mention a few.) There’s a sunny rooftop patio with a garden and lounge, where barbecues will be held in the summer after practice races.

The Premium Rig

Featured in the 2013 Spartan Race, ALPHA’s PremiumRig is an all-encompassing structure combining ring, monkey bar, rope stations and squat racks. There’s an option to enter the rig straight from the monkey bars or via the peg board for an even greater challenge. If a participant fails to get by one station they must do 30 burpees before moving on to the next (at least these are the rules in Spartan Race. ALPHA might have another task in store for you). Stations are interchangeable, and instructors can arrange them in various orders to design specific routes based on your skill level. Even the most elite athletes will find a route to make them sweat.

To ensure you’re never bored with your workout, ALPHA is also equipped with:
  • A turfed area for prowler workouts
  • Concept2 Indoor Rowers
  • BOSU balls
  • Medicine balls
  • Body bars
  • Skipping ropes
  • Battle ropes
