A HARD CANDY CHRISTMAS: SISSYDUDE GOES TO HARD CANDY FITNESS!!!
I’m like a gym virgin… I’ve never walked in one. Never been on any machine or lifted weights. I just can’t. But I was invited by Hard Candy Store GM Kerolos Saleib to take a boo at the new Hard Candy Fitness Toronto. So, how could I resist?
You can watch TV or listen to tunes while you run on these things (not on the machines pictured). BTW, this isn’t like the old Kenny Roger’s Roasters where they only played Kenny’s tunes. Hard Candy was playing all kinds of tunes when I visited. They even have live djs some nights!
MORE IMAGES & THOUGHTS after the jump…
Monkey bars for adults! So far Hard Candy’s gym is mostly women and gay men. Madge is totally cool so there are a very diverse group working here. And there is “Strength & Heels” a cardio workout for men and women dancing in pumps and platforms. The gym sells custom-made heels for men for the class. Now that’s AWESOME!
Now this locker room was really impressive. Very neat and clean. Heated floors, fluffy white towels, hair products, soap, razors, q-tips, a sauna, a steam room and personal showers with cute glass doors. I kinda wanted to stay here with the five wet naked men that were there during my visit. They were all so buff and tight. But Kerolos insists that there are all kinds of people coming here. Not everyone is a muscle god.
And btw… Hard Candy does not tolerate bad vibes from anyone! So be nice and have fun!
Thanks Mr. Saleib for giving me a tour. It actually made me want “to go to there”. Maybe I should ‘Open My Heart’ and get a membership.
