Pictured L–R: Joel Gerson (Revolution MMA), Darcy Hagerman (Moksha Yoga), Will Jung (True North Climbing) and Sender Deutsch (Shape Health & Wellness Centre)

Best for fitness
The buzzy Revolution MMA goes beyond MMA, with jiu-jitsu and more. 150 Lesmill Rd.
SUNNYBROOK PARK is a great place to take my dog for hikes when I want to feel like I’m not in the city anymore.” 
1132 Leslie St.

Best for yoga
Align all of your chakras at MOKSHA YOGA and emerge centred.  
100 Sheppard Ave. E., Unit 100
TORONTO CENTRE FOR THE ARTS always has fantastic theatre. There’s always a great show to check out.” 
5040 Yonge St.

Best climbing
TRUE NORTH CLIMBING has a cool 15,000 square feet of climbing terrain for newbies and pros alike.  
75 Carl Hall Rd., Unit 14
“My wife and I go to EMPRESS THEATRES a lot to watch movies — typically action because it’s more impressive on the big screen.” 
5095 Yonge St.

For the dog obsessed (like us), PUFF N PURR SPAW is just the ticket for your pooch. Groomer Jasmine has a calming presence and pets adore her. Your baby will emerge a new, well, dog.
28 Finch Ave. W., Unit 108

Everyone and their aunt is obsessed with escape rooms — and for good reason. MYSTERY ROOM does it up with some rather intense escape zones, including a quest to kill the devil’s son.  
1140 Sheppard Ave. W., Unit 18

Don your very finest threads from 1975 and hit up the NEWTONBROOK BOWLERAMA for some classic fun. Best deal is to go Sunday mornings, when each game is but a toonie. 
5837 Yonge St.

Who would have guessed that axe throwing was going to become a thing? BATL brings it with their rad facilities where you emerge feeling surprisingly refreshed. They also have a mobile team so can come to your event.
153 Bridgeland Ave., Unit 15-16

The NORTH YORK FARMERS’ MARKET at Mel Lastman Square is perfectly suited to both shopping for fresh fruit and veg or just a lively place to head for a weekend morning stroll.  
5100 Yonge St.
