about us

EAT is a compact, private and upscale gym located in downtown Toronto, approximately one minute from the Gardiner Expressway, and a brisk walk from the fashion & financial districts.

Our gym

Pro-grade equipment

We use the best: Atlantis Strength, fat grip dumbbells and Rogue weightlifting plates and bars, as well as Strongman equipment, for specialized strength and metabolic conditioning.

Fringe benefits

Our delicious post-workout protein shakes are available on-site and will make all the pain and sweat worthwhile. Showers & towel service provided.

Lean, mean and in the heart of the machine.

The Atlantis NMS0011 Dynamic Functional Training System provides a multitude of uni and bilateral pulling and pressing movements. Each weight stack starts with 20lb plates for ultra-light starting resistance.

The Rogue Echo bars have almost 200,000 PSI of tensile strength and dual knurl marks.

Charles and his team of highly educated staff are dedicated to helping every person who walks through their door. They're serious about the success of their clients and each program is personally tailored to fit each individual's needs and goals. At EAT, I was welcomed with a friendly atmosphere, no judgments, and the best training I've ever had. Any gym takes commitment, but few gyms are so committed to you. I highly recommend checking this place out if you're looking to take your training to the next level.

As a martial artist and athlete, I highly recommend getting in touch with Charles and the EAT team. Not only did I excel in the training room but in my performances in competition. Charles and his team are very knowledgeable when it comes to high performance training and have strongly built the foundations for me to always improve on and off the mats. I noticed very quickly my strength, speed, and reaction time improved in just a couple sessions started in 2016 and haven't looked back since. Thank you Charles and the EAT team for the great work.
