GoodLife Fitness and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) have partnered to open the first-of-its-kind fitness club in Canada at Toronto Pearson. Located in Terminal 1, the custom-designed facility will provide passengers the opportunity to include a work out as part of their travel experience. The gym facility will also offer convenient access to 40,000 Toronto Pearson employees, supporting a healthy and active lifestyle.

As Canada's largest airport with traffic continuing to grow every year, Toronto Pearson continues to look for innovative ways to provide an exceptional travel experience.

"As a frequent traveller, logging over 200,000 kilometres a year in air travel, I understand the great importance of maintaining an active lifestyle and integrating my workouts into my travel plans," said David "Patch" Patchell-Evans, GoodLife Founder & CEO.

"From personal experience I know what a tremendous difference it makes to my travel experience when I work out before I get on the plane, as well as my productivity and alertness when I land. With the opening of the Toronto Pearson GoodLife Fitness Club, we want to make it easier for all travellers, coming in and out of Toronto Pearson, to be able to experience the same great benefits as I have," he added.

With more than 300 clubs across the country, Goodlife’s new airport location is able to provide a convenient opportunity for travelers and airport employees to keep fit.

"Toronto Pearson continues to prioritize our passengers world-class travel experience, our partnership with GoodLife Fitness contributes to this experience," said Howard Eng, President and CEO for the GTAA. "We are also pleased to help support a healthy lifestyle for airport employees and to offer convenient access to the club."
