“A hidden gem in downtown Toronto”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

If you like to keep fit, visit the Grosvenor YMCA on your next visit to Toronto. For a low fee, you have use of updated, modern equipment and the pool. The staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities are clean and safe. You won't be disappointed.

“Good Facility, Many Choices”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

I am a "Y" member, and enjoy the privileges of that at Y's everywhere. From time to time, I schedule a squash match at this Y (conveniently a 5 min walk from the subway, parking scarce in the area) and enjoy the weight room ( free weights and machines), steam room and whirlpool in the same visit. Not too crowded except M-T after work and Sat mornings. Squash courts in good shape, but sadly, only two of them, so book early. Though Squash is the Number One fitness sport, and requires only a minimum equipment investment to start, the Y has reduced the numbver of courts to put more machines in. Sad really, that's just like any commercial gym and a step away from the interqaction that is part of the Y's philosophy. But back to the positive. Staff are friendly, and other patrons are generally not into any nonsense, helpful if asked, but respectful of your space and preferences.
You don't neeed to be a member to get in, day passes are sold for 11.00 and you can stay all day if you like, or leave and come back later. They will lend you a lock if you need one, and also let you sign out a squash racket, etc etc. Fitness classes, volleyball, bball, and many other activities every day that you can join in if you wish.
