Do you want to live forever? Well, it seems like now you — well, some of you — can get one step closer. Home to cutting-edge life-extending technology, Longevity House is a new ultra-exclusive members club in Toronto, promising members a “longer and better healthspan.” Simply put, through various practices and techniques, members can supposedly live not only better, but longer lives, and surprisingly, it didn’t come from the mind of Gwyneth Paltrow.
Longevity House is a 9,000 square foot club backing onto a ravine and one acre of forest in West Toronto — the first of its kind in Canada. It’s a membership community — only welcoming a mere 30 insiders — specializing in mind, body, and spiritual practices where top practitioners and premium technology (hello, AI-driven cardio) join forces to offer top notch, innovative services to a group of elite individuals — and at no small cost, might I add.
With a one-time membership fee of $100,000, members will have the opportunity to attend monthly workshops and have access to experts including Giovanni Bartolomeo, a globally renowned breathwork and plant medicine specialist and founder of Elemental Rhythm, as well as Urban Buddhist Monk Reverend Dr. Bhante Saranapala, who is a meditation and purpose-driven living and significance setting guide.
Members will also have access to the best practitioners in biohacking, plant medicine, epigenetics, breathwork, and functional medicine to balance their mind, body, and spirit.
How did this come to be, you ask?
The concept came from none other than Toronto-based fashion entrepreneur Michael Nguyen, who’s well known in the bespoke tailoring world and has even dressed the 6 God himself. After experimenting with bio-hacking for a decade, he wanted to branch out into the wellness sector professionally, and recently announced the launch of Longevity House as his newest venture.
“We are creating a space for people to strive for health creation rather than disease prevention,” says Nguyen in a press release. “How you live every single day matters, and we provide members with a destination to access the most innovative and proven tools in one place to ensure a longer and better healthspan.”
According to the press release, Longevity House was born “from a desire to create and promote a broader awareness to the cause of caring for one’s body, mind, and spirit in the pursuit of extending human healthspan.”
At Longevity House, they believe in two interventions at a time: weight training in an electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) suit, red light therapy while balancing on a vibration plate, and ai-driven cardio alongside oxygen variability training.
Additionally, just like the club itself, much of the equipment found at Longevity House is exclusive — used by elite athletes and peak performance coaches. For example, Lebron James works out using Tonal, the artificial intelligence smart gym and Tony Robbins is a fan of the Biocharger, which is a hybrid subtle energy revitalization platform. This ground-breaking equipment, which members have unlimited access to, and more can be found on the club’s service menu.
The Longevity House team says they have done years of research and trial and error to “source their technology and combine it into a circuit to give members the most time-effective training and recovery.”
While Toronto’s elite gets to be the first to experience Longevity House’s exclusive troves and innovations at their flagship location, Nguyen and the Longevity House team already have plans to open a second Toronto spot, at Yonge and Eglinton, as well as locations in both New York and Miami in 2022.
So, if you aren’t fortunate enough to be one of the lucky 30 members who get a shot at being #foreveryoung, you can always try again — at a different location — next year.
