FAQ

 

HOW DO I GET TO AFTERBURN?

Afterburn is located at 230 Nantucket Blvd. Unit 1 and is accessible by car and by TTC (43 Kennedy Bus). The nearest GO station is Kennedy GO Station at which point you may take the 43A or B bus to the Munham Gate Stop. The walk from Munham gate and Kennedy is approximately 5 minutes.

DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS?

Unfortunately, no, we do not have showers in our facility.  When designing the gym, we focused on maximizing the space and equipment available for use.

DO YOU HAVE CHANGE ROOMS?

Yes, we have 4 change rooms and 3 washrooms. Especially for training with your team it's best to come dressed and to leave all valuables in your car. Our changeroom area is not large.

I'M NOT A DRAGON BOAT PADDLER. CAN I TRAIN AT AFTERBURN?

Absolutely!  While we are home to Toronto's best-in-class indoor dragon boat paddling pool, we are open to anyone looking for a different fitness experience. Our facility is built to service many different training modalities effectively, from body building to powerlifting.

WHY AREN'T YOU STAFFED DURING THE DAY?

When Andrew is not at Afterburn, he's normally paddling at Sunnyside Paddling Club where he is also a general manager. Not staffing the facility throughout the day also allows us to provide more flexible hours economically.

DO YOU HAVE A PHONE NUMBER I CAN CALL YOU AT?

No, we don't have a phone number for the gym, email is the best way to reach us anyways!  We make it a priority to respond to emails within 24 hours so don't be shy to send us a note!

PADDLING POOL

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PADDLE AT ONCE?

The paddling pool is designed for 24 paddlers with standing and viewing room for another 4-6 persons.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN PADDLE?

No, we provide indoor pool paddles for anyone paddling at the facility.

CAN I PADDLE BAREFOOT?

Unfortunately, for safety reasons, we require all paddlers to wear appropriate footwear.  No exceptions will be made.

DO YOU OFFERING DROP-IN PADDLING?

We don't have drop-in paddling option per say but access to the pool comes with any day pass or membership, as long as the pool is not booked by a team.  


While we don't explicitly have drop-in paddling, if you anticipate to be paddling many times, the best bang for your buck would be to purchase a personal membership - anyone who has purchased a personal membership has unlimited access to the paddle pool (except during booked team training sessions). 

 

FITNESS

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN TAKE PART IN TEAM FITNESS TRAINING?

For safety and efficiency reasons, the number of participants for any fitness training session is capped to 26.  If you have more than 26 participants, we encourage you to book a second time slot.

CAN I USE CHALK?

Absolutely!  We are a chalk friendly facility.  We don't offer chalk but feel free to bring and use your own!

WHY DO I NEED TO CHANGE TO INDOOR SHOES?

No one can complain about a clean gym and here at Afterburn, we pride ourselves on offering our members and teams a facility that kept clean and immaculate. Many of our members prefer to train without shoes. In addition, our members and teams have training routines that involve groundwork. Our indoor shoe policy is strictly enforced to ensure that teams and members have a good experience.
