The story of Legacy Indoor Cycling is an intriguing one that starts with its’ passionate and founding owner. Andy Drak, husband, father, and full-time financial planner at TD, some how found the time to open up his studio so he could enable others into reaping the healthy and rewarding benefits that manifest by adopting a non-seditary lifestyle. A former daily participant in group ex classes, Andy elected to take the next step by instructing. Shortly after, Andy opened up Legacy where he was assisted hundreds of people in getting certified to teach SPIN, TRX, YOGA etc. A business yes, but more a place where people better themselves – physically, mentally and physiologically. The studio has a “small town” feel to it, where people are respected with dignity and grace. Relaxed atmosphere, suitable for almost anyone. Includes ladies only classes and the option to rent the studio. HIGHLY recommended. John Min – Instructor; LA Fitness, Glendon College, Fitness Connection, Fitness Institute, Mayfair Clubs
Legacy is changing my life! I am so happy I discovered this gem of a gym (thanks to Heather Wright)! I’ve been to many gyms over the years and none compare to Legacy. Andy takes a personal, and genuine, interest in every member and that is a huge motivational tool to push you towards your goals. I have been a member for mere months, but am already almost 20 lbs lighter than when I started. I’ve done the work myself, but Andy has made sure I’m enjoying the work that needs to be done.
All of the instructors are fantastic and personable as well. Whether it’s through personal training (also awesome!) or spinning, or any of the other great services they offer, Legacy will definitely enhance your life.
I used to spin YEARS ago, and after I had 2 kids, I was finding it difficult to lose the ‘baby weight’. I happened upon a Groupon for Legacy. It was close to my house, and I remembered getting a good workout from spinning before, so I thought I’d check it out. With regular visits over only 4-6 months, I had lost all of the extra weight, and also toned up and gained strength from the bootcamps (an added bonus to my spins!). I’ve also started running again, and I’ve completed a 10 km race (with a personal best time), and I’m now training for a 1/2 marathon for the Fall. With the amazing support, and the incredible enthusiasm of the instructors, and with the family feel of the other members at Legacy, I have always had the motivation, and drive to continue to train to my best ability. Legacy rocks! 🙂
Legacy is a gem hidden in the City of Toronto. The information and classes offered at this studio brings out the best in you. The group atmosphere is very positive and the vibes from the participants are amazing.
Bonus: When you can’t attend a class it feels like someone has taken away something special from you 😀
Legacy is a terrific gym — every spin instructor is great, and each one puts a little bit of a different “spin” on the workout — so I find there is a lot of variety even though I’m there four or five times a week. They’ve also been great at helping me modify boot camp while I recover from minor surgery…and for the first time, I’m doing personal training. Very welcoming, very knowledgeable. And fun.
Legacy is the place I go to get that “FEEL GREAT” feeling I will not find anywhere else. I have been to many gyms as well as trained with many trainers. The trainers at legacy are the best EVER!!!! They really care about me reaching my goals and make sure to keep me on track. The environment is full of great instructors who keep me motivated. Everyone is friendly and ALWAYS smiling. The vaiety of classes along with the spinnning and running keeps it interesting. If you want to change your body join the Legacy family
I joined Legacy on the recommendation of my physiotherapist. I’m not the gym type. However, Legacy made getting in shape fun and easy. My knees are much better and in the process I dropped more than 60 pounds.
A year ago(ish), I was feeling very sore, tired and out of shape. I had seen a few doctors about the pain I was having and there were no real answers. Tried a local gym and wasn’t really motivated to continue.
I had driven by Legacy almost daily and thought I’d go in for a few pay-as-you-go classes to see what it was about. The workout was so intense that I was sore for days and I kept going back for more. In a few months my shape changed dramatically and the pain I was having disappeared. A few more months passed and I was training for then running a 10k (a shock to anyone who know me) with some new friends from Legacy.
Now I’m averaging 4 mornings a week, feeling and looking better that I have in years. My wife is now also a member and loving it. Legacy is a part of our lives and our routines. Thank-you Andy, Annette and everyone else who is so supportive and encouraging. Amazing trainers, amazing members and amazing classes.
Since moving to Toronto, Legacy has offered up the best classes I have been able to find!
I have been spinning for many years, and it was not until I joined Legacy that I decided to become an instructor myserlf. The classes are great, the motivation is fantastic and all the instructors really know their audience!
Amazing boutique experience where the team atmosphere and collegiality really make an impact on one’s fitness level. The personalized touch has allowed me to push my PB’s higher than I ever thought possible.
I joined Legacy in March 2012 and love it. I have never had an endorphin high like this before! I LOOK FORWARD to going to the 6:30am classes! Great instructors, great people. I have never felt intimidated – I can work at my own pace and feel good about myself, and extremely happy when I can keep up with the “seasoned” spinners!
Update! As of now I’ve lost 60 pounds since joining Legacy. And, I’ve run a 10K which I never in a million years thought I could do. Legacy has totally made the difference for me. The trainers are so supportive. Even when I doubt myself, they believe in me.
If you are looking for the best instructors, best music and overall best classes in the city, you can’t top Legacy. The people are awesome, the studio is amazing, the sound system will rock your world. The teachers are world class. Atmosphere is a pleasure as well. You’ll feel like family here immediately. I love Legacy!!
Having bounced around from gym to gym, I have finally found a unique place with amazing instructors that motivate me to get in shape, lose weight & have fun doing it ! Great atmosphere, great team, great experience !
Fantastic place and terrific people. If you’re in the area you definitely want to check it out!
Legacy has made such a profound and positive impact on my life. The trainers the classes and the team environment is a great motivator. It’s awesome.
If you’re a runner, take heed.
What started off in 2010 as a substitute for running while injured has now become a regular cross-training activity that helps me PREVENToveruse injuries. In December 2011, I trained for a difficult 10.8 km road race on the Niagara Escarpment without running a single set of hill repetitions. All the hill work was done on a Schwinn bike at Legacy. The result? I ran a personal best on that course and placed third in my age group.
So saddle up at Legacy, my running friends and experience new challenges, fantastic people and real results.
HANDS DOWN (or hands up!) the best gym. Andy and the instructors provide an incredibly inspired approach to optimal fitness. You will truly test your limits with them. I found this gym on a groupon and became hooked immediately. It has something you just have to experience. Thank you so much Legacy! You provided the needed spark!
If you want motivation to work out and get the results, its the place to be. Its not any other regular GYM, its a place where instructors genuinely care about you and only you. Love the place and will never change to another GYM.
The energy at this place is incredible. Makes working out fun. The staff are super friendly and personable. Haven’t stepped foot in another gym since. Would recommend to any and everyone 🙂
I found Legacy through a groupon and loved it so much I stayed on. The staff are very passionate about spinning, bootcamps, personal training and TRX. They motivate through positive encouragement and make you accountable for your fitness goals. Everyone is really nice and supportive – it feels like you are all in it together and that for sure adds an extra level of encouragement.
Fantastic gym! I love the energy and how all of the instructors know the members by name. Bootcamp is a great workout!
Great gym, great atmosphere…
Still can’t believe I’ve lost 45 pounds since I joined 18 months ago. I love the spin classes and the boot camps and yoga are great. It’s all about the trainers. They are super friendly and supportive.
Love Legacy!! Amazing staff and workouts!!
I quit two health clubs out of boredom before I stuck here. This place is great –I’ve had fantastic results. dropped many inches off the waistline – even my face looks different. And it’s fun.
They kick your ass and support your goals… The place totally rocks
