After five years near Main and Gerrard in the Upper Beach neighbourhood, Main Fitness has settled into its new digs at 1745 Queen St. E. on the ground floor of a condo building.

In its new setting, the fitness centre, which Charlene Sullivan founded nearly 20 years ago and Gudrun Hardes has been a co-owner of for more than half that time, continues to offer a variety of classes spanning variations of yoga, barre, pilates, cardio, strength training, dance and cycling.

“We are strictly a class-based boutique studio, which means all instructor-led classes. You don’t come and just do your own thing… you come for a class,” said the other co-owner Andrea Page, a former client who bought into the business a year-and-a-half ago after its gravity machines helped her rediscover her love of exercise.

“The beauty of the small group training is, it’s like personal training but at a very affordable price, and it’s nice to have the camaraderie of a few other people,” she added.

Page said fusion classes, which combine different types of workouts—think 30 minutes of intensive cycling followed by a yoga cooldown—add to the fitness centre’s “unique identity.”

Although Main Fitness, formerly Main Street Cardio, has moved several times before, it has always remained in the Beach and the co-owners plan to stay here. “We’d like to stay in one place, ad infinitum,” Page said. “It’s truly our clientele that keep us here [in the Beach].”
