Sweat and Tonic will bring the best of boutique fitness to the project, providing both residents and the surrounding community an elevated wellness experience.

“Sweat and Tonic was conceptualized in 2017 to bring the highest quality of group fitness to Canada with Yorkville as the preferred location. We have looked at many spaces over the ensuing years as we maintained a discipline to be selective, and so it’s with great pride we can finally announce another partnership with RioCan to make 11 Yorkville our third home in Toronto,” said David Ingram, Founder of Sweat and Tonic.

“Our first location at Yonge and Shuter St opened in November 2019 and, despite the impact of COVID-19, it has surpassed all expectations. Our second location at The Well™ has already exceeded record attendance rates. We are truly grateful to both communities for their overwhelming support and remain optimistic and excited for this next phase of our evolution in one of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods.”

This announcement comes only three months after the successful opening of Sweat and Tonic’s second location at The Well in Toronto.
