Infrared Fitness & Yoga - HOT. FIT. ROW. - Doors Reopen

IFY (Infrared Fitness and Yoga), Collingwood’s ‘NEWEST’ fitness studio is re-opening its doors on Tuesday, September 8th, 2020.

The studio was forced to close its doors on March 16th, 2020, just a few weeks after its grand opening, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. IFY is proud to re-open, offering a unique approach to fitness and yoga. The studio offers a variety of fitness styles appealing to all fitness levels and ages such as: HIIT, TRX, Kickboxing, Pilates, Barre, Yoga, Gentle Stretch and coming soon,  Rowing classes.

Strict safety and cleaning protocols have been put into place to ensure the comfort and safety of members, staff and instructors. This includes: screening upon entry to the facility, floor markers to provide at least six feet of physical distance between each person; mandatory mask-wearing everywhere in the studio except while exercising; hand sanitizing required upon entry and exit of a class; class sizes will be limited to allow proper distancing between workout stations; shorter classes to allow for equipment and studio sanitization between classes. 

IFY classes are referred to as “labs” and occur in studios gently warmed by infrared heaters, so workouts are enhanced by the healing properties of infrared rays. Founder Lynn Beauregard is excited to re-open, “The benefits of infrared heat are becoming well-known, and when paired with the workouts we offer, those benefits are greatly enhanced. We have created an incredibly unique fitness offering in the region and we are excited to add rowing to our group classes very soon.”

Infrared light is the heat people feel when exposed to the sun and the skin naturally radiates infrared heat every day. Infrared light has shown immense health benefits, from pain relief and reduced inflammation, to boosting the immune system. Combined with fitness, infrared results include higher fat and caloric burn, improved circulation, detoxification, increased metabolism, skin purification and more.

Unlike traditional hot fitness studios that are warmed by conventional heat, infrared is less intense, penetrates deeper into the body and results in a more vigorous sweat at lower temperatures. IFY’s infrared studios are more comfortable, breathable and invigorating, safe for all ages and abilities.

Residents and visitors to the region are welcome to explore the labs and studios at IFY to learn more about this exciting fitness concept. An introductory unlimited week offer for $30 is the perfect way to sample the many labs IFY has to offer. 5, 10 and 20 class passes are also available online at or in person. Get yours and step into the healing infrared fitness zone!
