I recently trained at the Sweatshop Union. The space is state of the art and has a modern and welcoming vibe. More importantly the owner Brian Douglas is a different bread of trainer. I have been training and playing competitive sports for decades but nothing compares to the workouts Brian Douglas put me though. His passionate and understanding of the science behind the body combined with his client needs are next level. More...
What a great place, clean, great equipment, amazing staff!!! Everyone that walks into the place from members to staff is supportive and motivational. After 6 weeks I have lost so much weight and inches and gained muscle. I would highly recommend it!!! More...
Brian is a great professional in this field. He is willing to help new entrepreneurs to have success and that was exactly what he did for me, open the doors of his studio to give me the opportunity to have a new home were I can develop as a trainer. Plus, I work with the same principles that SweatShop Union does, so for me is a pleasure start to work in this studio. Thanks Brian! More...

6 weeks ago I decided to challenge myself and do a 6 week fitness and healthy life style challenge. I am so pleased to say that I met my goals, have adopted a healthier lifestyle and have never felt better about myself both mentally and physically. I'm so freakin proud of myself!
Phenomenal facility, amazing staff, highly knowledgable trainers who are committed to helping you achieve your goals. Overall, a postive, fun, motivating and clean environment.
This is an awesome facility. The staff are really helpful and knowledgeable, the members are lovely. If you want to stay motivated to keep fitness as a lifestyle (because let's face is, the chain gyms can be very un-motivating) then this is where you should go. I highly recommend!
I highly recommend this top-notch facility. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful, supportive and knowledgable. The trainers are committed to helping you achieve results. You definitely get an amazing workout every time. I have never felt better than the way I feel now. Thank you SweatShop Union. More...
Personal Attention, helped me get stronger than I ever thought I could!
I could not stress enough how important it was, for me to just SHOW UP, to my first class at Sweat Shop Union class. I remember being in a lot of pain from my job, my massage therapist said it appears I have scar tissue built up along my spine and it was basically from using my body wrong and not engaging the right muscles when I was doing the physicalities of my job. Basically I didn't understand how to hold myself right and engage my muscles, and strength training was a recommendation for me by her self and my chiropractor. I decided to sign up with Brian at Sweatshop Union because it was something I had thought about for a long time and for whatever reason didn't go for it. My number one advice to anybody thinking about joining is just come, just show up just start doing it and let the results speak for themselves. I went with the unlimited and made a commitment to my self of minimum 3 days a week, I commited and I persevered. After being with Sweatshop Union for three months I experienced incredible strength at work, I was able to sleep a full night without any pain, I no longer needed to go to my massage therapist and I haven't been back to my chiropractor. I had built a lot of strength I was able to hold my self up in side plank at yoga with zero pain in my wrists, it was almost unbelieveable, and I was feeling very very good. My meal plans, goal setting and coaching from Brian and his unlimited plan and his team was not only functional but I really started to feel my self inspiring others, and I saw my body changing and taking on such an amazing shape! I think by far in the last two years the happiest part of my life has been during these three months and I'm happy to say that I'm commited to going strong well into the new year!!! Thanks to Brian and his incredible team, I feel like I have a home away from home where I can escape the stresses of my life and really rebuild myself in a positive way. So, if there's anyone out there that's struggling with stress or just general lethargicness this is definitely something I would recommend. Brian's Universal approach captures so many important aspects of many work out styles and encapsules it in a well-rounded union of sweat. His ability to tap you into your true self, spiritual awareness and self-love has made this one of the most well-rounded in-depth workout programs I've ever been a part of and by far my favourite. Every week is designed to cater to every muscle and if you go consistently every week, your entire body will be worked in a calculated science based crazy design that I still cant comprehend. I know I will never find anything else, that compares. I am very grateful that I showed up that day, it wasnt easy at first, it challanges you to grow, but the results are by far the best I have ever experienced from training. I have no doubt I will be successful in the Military one day, and I will have Brian to thank for it. More...
Great layout! Great instructors!
SweatShop Union has changed my life in so many ways! As a mother of 4, it has been difficult finding a place that would enable me to loose the extra baby fat. But, since joining SweatShop Union, I have lost weight, gained strength and gained endurance. I do not need the extra push to attend this place. Why? This is because SweatShop Union is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! I am excited to go to the classes! Brian and Phil are amazing. They make the classes fun and encourage me to give 110 % every time! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family! More...
Whether it’s his online training program or in-shop bootcamp sessions, I always get one hell of a workout! Not to mention, I have seen results far beyond what I would have achieved on my own! I’ve been his online training client for over 6 months now. The beauty of his program is that my workout is personally written out and waiting for me each day. Every workout is different which keeps things things challenging and fun...you'll never know what’s next. Not only does it keep my body and muscles guessing but also doesn’t get boring with the same movements. Brian is super knowledgeable which allows him to create a personalized and unique program that incorporates functional and resistance training, cardio and most importantly of all, nutrition. I’m finally seeing the results of working out smarter, not harder! He is very positive, honest, genuine and truly cares about all his clients. I would highly recommend Sweat Shop Union to anyone looking to challenge their existing workout routine and kickstart their fitness journey regardless of their physical abilities. More...
My family has been training at Sweatshop Union for several years. I initially didn't see the need for me to go, as I was already a member at Lifetime Athletic, have had over 30 years of weight training background, am a high level runner and triathlete, and am a Doctor of Chiropractic. But since going with my family, I see the benefit of the personal nature Brian provides and the family feeling of a more intimate gym. Brian is the most creative trainer I have ever worked with and Simon is amazing with his knowledge of form and technique. I highly recommend Sweatshop Union! More...
Sweatshop Union is a phenomenal facility and I can highly recommend them! I have been working out my whole life but since joining Sweatshop Union two years ago I am the strongest and fittest I have ever been in my life. No two sessions are ever the same so you are constantly adapting and improving, and the trainers always manage to push me much further than i would be able to push myself, while still keeping the classes fun and innovative.I recently had my third child, and I'm certain that training at Sweatshop Union for the past two years helped me stay strong throughout my pregnancy, which definitely made both pregnancy and labour easier. The trainers were great while I was pregnant and modified the workouts for me so that I could continue working out throughout my pregnancy.Brian and the other trainers at Sweatshop Union are passionate about their work, genuinely care about every client and have a positive attitude which makes training really fun. The bootcamp classes feel like personal training because the classes are small and the trainers are so knowledgeable and attentive. Sweatshop Union is much more than a gym, it's a community that goes beyond just fitness, but also includes nutrition, meditation and general well-being. I can highly recommend Sweatshop Union!!

I am the owner of SweatShop Union. I feel so grateful and blessed to serve all our amazing clients from Oakville and surrounding areas. Thank You so much for the opportunity to work with you. More...
I have been attending SweatShop Union for several years. I started with 3 bootcamp classes per week at 6:00am. I am HOOKED!! attending their lunch class as well now and occasionally on weekends. The attention from the trainers is 1st class; a very unique approach compared to every major gym that offers this type of program. I would not hesitate to recommend this gym to anyone. You get the feeling that you are getting a personal training session. Te camaraderie among members is also something that brings me back - tons of fun and laughter along the way.
My gains have been substantial in all regards. I look forward to an awesome 2018.
To everyone at SWU - thanks for your ongoing support! More...
I've only ever had one other PT in my life to teach me how to box, and I can honestly say that Brian's skill and technique as both a trainer and a (kick)boxer has really pushed me to fine-tune my own fitness level and skills. I wasn't sure if his gym and PT sessions for boxing were going to be what I was looking for, so I came in thinking I'd be there for a month. It's now been 5 months, and I'm still training with him. He tailors the sessions to your own fitness goals, and he makes them fun and innovative. They're always different and never easy, and I always know that my body is in for something new each time I have a session with him. Training with him is definitely reviving my drive to learn how to box and to push my body to learn new things (and to break old habits). More...
I've been training with Brian for over 8 years now. I can't say enough about his professionalism, technical knowledge, and passion which he channels every workout to his clients. It has been an amazing to see his growth as a business professional with the opening of his own studio space which, when you enter, you'll see how much pride he takes in what he does and how much he values his clients. Beyond all the 'trimmings', the fact of the matter is that he will bring you to your best level of fitness and, without a doubt, has the expertise to do so.-Steve (Oakville) More...
