“Weights are the best pills in the world.”
Buster ‘Bus’ Oliphant, The Toronto Daily Star, April 22 1981
Welcome to Oliphant's Academy of Physical Culture, Toronto's oldest continuously running gym. From it's founding by the Oliphant family in 1913, the gym has consistently served the local community while providing training to generations of NHL and CFL greats. Today, the Academy is a member-run, no-frills gym experience, filled with modern and vintage free weights and equipment. We are a welcoming community dedicated to preserving the timeless values established by it's founders. Come join us, and rediscover the Golden Age of Iron in the 21st century.
