Wouldn't it be nice to be able to avoid the hassles of leaving home every day, the traffic and the people, and just go to a gym in your own building for your daily workout? One of the advantages that comes with living in modern condominium buildings, and this includes most condos and lofts for sale in Toronto Ontario is that they come with a full range of amenities such as an in house gym.
In fact, workout rooms and gyms have become standard offering in residential high rises, as any Oakville real estate agent can tell you. They offer residents a chance to work out without having to leave their building, which saves a lot of time and probably even money.
What do most condo gyms include? Well, about everything you could hope for in a city health spa. There are usually rows of cardio equipment including treadmills, exercise bikes, recumbent bikes, and stairmasters. The brands and extras (such as on board television) will depend on what kind of condo development you live in, as a general rule the higher the price of the condo, the more state of the art the equipment.
In Toronto condos you will also find a full range of weight training equipment. There are free weights, machines which can work all the parts of your body, and muscle specific weight machines as well.
Yoga rooms are becoming more common in condo complexes which include gyms, you just have to look on the advanced features while perusing the Toronto condo townhouse online to see if the development you are interested in includes these facilities as well. The mats and equipment are cleaned and maintained by building staff, under the direction of the property manager.
If you are looking for the total health experience, many downtown Toronto condos will include a pool and spa area which can be used by residents. Again, the size of the pool and its location will generally be determined by the price of units within the condo complex. There are buildings which include full workout pools, complete with several swimming lanes, a sauna, and of course the hot tub all on the top floor under a glass roof. Less costly buildings will have smaller pools, meant mainly for exercise.
Condos can be truly unique pieces of real estate; jobs are created within each development. Not only will there be property managers and caretakers, but the gym at a condo will probably include a full complement of staff as well. There are greeters, cleaners, and some will have personal trainers available to residents.
Of course, just because it is in your building and you don't pay membership fees to the gym does not mean condo exercise facilities are free. Most of the time, your gym costs are included in your condo fees. Make sure it is worth the price before you buy a unit based on the condo's gym!
