Forge Performance & Fitness might not be in Toronto but a short 20 minute drive will have you arrive at one of the best gyms in the west end – if you’re serious about strength training. The gym is all business, you go in, you train, you leave. It seems it’s one of only a handful of gyms left with more equipment than TV’s.
