The best CrossFit gyms in Toronto prove that, with solid coaching, you can ramp up your level of physical training without the use of mirrors, stationary bikes or bulky exercise machines. Relying on a mash-up of Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, sprinting, rowing and other Strongman exercises to form a prescribed WOD (a.k.a workout of the day), you're guaranteed to get stronger, move faster and finally master the highly coveted muscle-up.

While the methodology in CrossFit-style workouts may be the same, every gym operates differently. Programming styles can range from bodyweight-only exercises to gymnastics-based training. Some favour a weightlifting component whereas others emphasize metabolic conditioning. At the heart of it all, proper instruction for form and safety are key (because yes, there really is a way to do a burpee so that it'll suck less).

Here are the best CrossFit gyms in Toronto.
