Gym Suddenly Shuts Down in Mississauga

It hasn’t been a good few months for Mississauga fitness facilities.

Last year, we found out that the Cooksville-based Vision Fitness closed without warning. Shortly after that, we discovered that the Gymify location on Burnhamthorpe Rd. (just off of Central Parkway) had closed down.

Now, it looks like Gymify’s Streetsville location is also closed.

An reader recently submitted a photo of a letter taped to Gymify’s door that indicates that Associated Bailiffs & Co. Ltd. have “taken distress” against the fitness facility on behalf of the landlord.

In layman’s terms, an issue between landlord and tenant has prompted the (perhaps temporary) closure of Gymify’s last Mississauga location.

The letter, dated Jan. 31, says the tenant has five days to pay its outstanding balance.

The balance, according to the letter, sits at $46,749.62 plus additional costs.

Although the locks have reportedly been changed, the letter says that Gymify’s landlord has not terminated the lease and that the company’s “rights to the premises” will continued to be recognized.

Whether or not the gym will reopen remains to be seen. has reached out to Gymify for comment.

Gymify is a 24-hour “no contact gym,” meaning it’s a completely unmanned facility that you sign up for online and enter with a key fob.
