Pros:Good bodybuilding equipment
Cons:Shady owners past present and future
Thoughts:Thanks Christ it finally closed...just goes to show you that everyone who commented "negatively" on this so called gym was correct 100%. This place was always a dump in a terrible secluded area. Changed ownership 10 times in the last 12 years.

This gym is a god damn joke. I started working out here in January and the guy I signed up with was a pushy bastard. His name was Andrew and my god was he a nuisance. I’d ask if the gym had any free trials and he’d keep telling me there’d be no point. He kept pushing me to sign a year contract telling me he’d give me the best possible price.Me being desperate for a gym in North York, I signed the damn contract and I regret it to this day. The staff are incompetent and furthermore plain arrogant. Don’t expect the front desk staff to be of any help or any other staff member for that matter. I’ve heard so many rumours of Dave the guy from management, attempting to coerce his potential clients into doing sexual favors for him for free memberships. You can check google reviews or even ask some of the locals, and most won’t deny that he’s a sick freak. It doesn’t help that he can’t run a gym. The place is filed with criminals, low life’s and a bunch of guys who walk around like they’re hot shots. You got a bunch of personal trainers who shoot up steroids and act like they know what personal training is because they “look” the part. I’ve bumped into some personal trainers on the street, and let me tell you they don’t give a shit. They’re probably some of the worst people I’ve ever dealt. Having a good environment is paramount to any individual’s training. If you’re looking for that type of environment, go elsewhere. I signed a year membership here and it’s fucking terrible.

Worst gym ever. Pushy salesmen, They will sign up your friends and give them better deals than you. The washrooms are full of needles... clearly the staff pushes roids. They can't even properly charge your credit card. And will charge you a fee larger than the membership fee. And it's funny how So many people I know had the same problem on the same month. But refuse to admit fault for anything. This gym is a joke. The staff here are incompetent. I strongly suggest you go to any gym other than this one. DNA will make you cringe and wonder why you even signed up..

Cost of membership:250.00 per year (because they are desperate and need members, thus the lowball price).
Pros:Thinking.....still thinking....
Cons:This is probably the 5th owner this gym has had in the last 8 years. It is a shit hole in the middle of north york at dufferin and steeles and it collects the idiot members that would never be accepted in a real gym with rules/regulations and hardcore training. They have rearranged this place around and downsized dramatically and the gym's become a shell of its former self do to lack of real members and not just neighbourhood Russian/Jews that think they own the place. I was a member there for 6 years until they last cast of character owners tried to pull a scam and tourch the place down to the ground without giving members any heads up to what was going on and still charging them while shut down for 3 months. Call it DNA Fitness....whatever...its a shit gym. Trainers are all losers that need to get off their high horse especially Alex. Bottom line is these new owners are no different than any previous owners in the sense that they just don't get it. CHANGE and or downsizing doesn't make a gym better. Quality members and staff do. Steer clear from hear and join a real gym. Even Goodlife is much better.
Thoughts:You just read them.
The best gym in the city is (and why): Olympia Muscle and Fitness and Fitness 365...hands down.
