What’s the TORQUE difference?
Since 2013, we’ve been more than just a gym. We’re a community that’s dedicated to not only getting strong, healthy, and fit. We’re a FAMILY. Whether its our BBQ’s and special events, our Education Seminars, or our Record Boards – you’re joining a group of people who support each other, push each other to hit personal bests and reach our goals, and who always have each other’s backs.
When you’re in here grinding away on a step mill, or pushing through your last set of deadlifts – you’re building a bond with your other members that extends beyond just your workout.
Join us and see for yourself #TORQUEfamily
We host education seminars and courses to help you further your knowledge of strength, nutrition, and a generally healthy fitness lifestyle.
Since the day we opened the TORQUE record board has been a staple of the gym. It holds world records, personal bests, national champions, and world champions. People travel to TORQUE just to try and put their name on the board.
BBQ’s AND GYM EVENTS
Another tradition that we’ve been carrying since 2013 is our BBQ’s and special events. We kick off every summer with an anniversary party – pot luck style. Bring your best or favorite food and join us every June for a great party with good friends.
CHARITY AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Along with supporting various charities that are close to our hearts, we are involved in the community through sponsoring events, donating gifts and supplies, and collecting goods such as the Winter Coat Drive, and Toronto Food Bank canned goods.
GYM CHALLENGES AND FRIENDLY COMPETITIONS
TORQUE head-to-head deadlift competition. Based on a percent of your bodyweight, each lifter had to perform max reps in 1 minute, and the winner (on the left) was given a final chance to lift against a professional powerlifter to win extra cash.
Other friendly competitions include a monthly pull-up challenge, a “squat your bodyweight” competition, and monthly bootcamp challenges such as posting healthy meals to our Facebook group for a chance to win free protein and Sport Chek gift cards.
One of the most unique things about TORQUE is the ability to work outside. In the months of April to November when we have our 3 large garage doors open, members can bring equipment outside and get a workout in under the sun. This makes cardio interesting and will have you sweating while working on your tan.
