Pop Physique Toronto—the L.A.-born barre import known for its American Apparel–ish aesthetic and booty preoccupation—has shuttered its doors. Prepaid classes and memberships will be honoured by Barre Belle in Forest Hill.

Boxing is the new spinning. The latest place to throw a punch is Drop Boxing, a 5,000-square-foot studio now open at Queen and Spadina (161 Spadina Avenue).

Calgary-based Undrcard, which offers music-driven “group boxing fitness with a beat,” is slated to arrive in Toronto this spring.

Planta has taken over Nota Bene’s former digs (180 Queen Street West). The menu is still 100 percent plant-based, but here it’s Asian-inspired—yup, that means dim sum brunch, too.

ASICS Run Club will launch in Toronto on April 16. Lace up every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Japanese brand’s first Canadian flagship (364 Queen Street West). All paces welcome.

Barry’s Bootcamp will soon open in Yorkville. The HIIT studio’s second Red Room in Toronto will be right in the heart of luxury retail, at 101 Bloor Street West.
