Explore the people and places that make downtown a great place to visit, live and work.

Posted: Jan 11, 2021

While we’re safely at home to stop the spread of COVID-19, our downtown fitness providers have once again stepped up to provide us virtual workouts.

Their doors may be temporarily closed, but they’re working hard to come up with new and innovative ways to keep you moving.  Stay healthy, and keep up with your fitness regime by taking part in some online workouts being provided by our downtown Burlington fitness community! If you’re a fitness provider in the downtown core and wish to be included please e-mail us at events@burlingtondowntown.ca.

Our Haven | 580 Brant Street, Unites 5 & 6

Heels optional. This is a chance to gain confidence and physical strength while working on improving your dance skills. Havens Performance Company is a safe space – never any judgement or the sense of feeling like you have to be just as good as the person next to you. As adults, we often forget that life is about more than just work and paying bills, life is about creating relationships with those we love. Relationships are the most important thing to us in our lives as they are the source of all our best memories whether it be in person or online!’

Strive Fitness | 616 Brant St #6

Ian Grimmer, owner of Strive Fitness, is posting various free at-home workouts on his Instagram account. He states “while being stuck at home take the opportunity to do high-rep workouts. Higher reps does not mean easy. Higher reps will give your joints and ligaments a much needed rest from heavy weights, build muscle endurance, muscle tone and calorie burn.”
