For those looking for a new way to get in shape, Toronto's Nucleo Fitness offers a unique option. Instead of endless rows of treadmills and ellipticals, this boutique gym features a very different set of machines.
Nucleo Fitness is a fitness studio that combines "the powerful effects of pilates with the cardio conditioning of water rowing" for the ultimate workout. However, members do not just use any old rowing machine to work their muscles. Instead, Nucleo Fitness is stocked with WaterFlywheel machines, that feature a cylinder of water and a spinning paddle that mimics the real sensation of rowing. The result is a killer core workout that targets the back, legs and abdominal muscles.
With classes maxing out at just 12 students, the gym is the perfect place for those looking for a more intimate approach to fitness.
