I highly recommend Altitude Athletic to anyone looking to level up their fitness. I first joined a friend and was surprised to see how dramatically different I felt training at altitude. After becoming a regular member it didn’t take long to see improvements in my strength, cardio, and heart rate both in and outside of their facilities. The staff is knowledgeable and provides a supportive and encouraging environment for all of their members who are looking to achieve personal goals. The facilities are beautiful and the equipment is top notch. This is one of the few gyms I have found that has treadmills that incline to 25% (majority are 15%). This is one of the best gyms in Toronto. The fact that it’s the only public gym to offer training at simulated altitudes is icing on the cake!


I have for years tried to find a gym that didn’t treat me like a $, somewhere that would educate me and help me understand my body in relation to my goals. But let’s face it; this is everyone’s hope. Every gym has a “schtick,” and in the end, you probably stopped going because once you got past the aesthetics and the basic programming, you realized you were not getting anywhere. Me too, and that’s why you should try Altitude.

Don’t go because of the hypoxic training.
Don’t go because it looks great.
Don’t go because they use objective, quantitative analysis.
Don’t go because the personal trainers are fantastic (shout out to Josh)
Don’t go because they bend over backwards to make you feel welcome.
Don’t go because the founder, Melanie, has a mutant bunny that secretly runs the whole thing.

Go because you’ll actually Go.
Regardless of your fitness level, start here, and feel good about yourself amongst one of the best gym communities I’ve ever interacted with.

Thank you, Team Altitude, for helping me feel great; the impact on my life has been profound, mentally and physically.

Now, I did what the rabbit said; please tell it to release my family 😉


Summit member for 3 months. Can’t speak more highly of Altitude as a “semi-extreme” athlete. Amazing facility and staff, the benefits of altitude training were remarkable for me. I’ve raced ultras for years, joined Altitude with an aggressive race schedule (3 ultras and a marathon major within 11 weeks) and exceeded all expectations with a couple PBs. With lower overall intensity I’m faster than I have been before.

I’ve never enjoyed going to gyms before, but Melanie and her team have made a unique and valuable space to train for extreme activities. Highly recommend
