Health & Fitness
We’re a gym — and so much more!
Our Fitness Center offers a wide variety of cardio equipment, free weights and a full complement of weight and resistance machines. New members can choose to have an orientation to the Fitness Centre focusing on member etiquette and the use of strength and cardio equipment. Personal Trainers are on site and training packages can be purchased to create a more customized and supportive approach to meet your fitness goals.
Our goals are to help educate and motivate YMCA members to choose and permanently maintain healthy lifestyle changes. We are committed to increasing your understanding of what it really means to be “optimally” well and “functionally” fit. We look forward to assisting you to become healthier to improve your quality of life!
Instructors and volunteers are always available to answer questions and offer advice.
As soon as you start your YMCA membership you have access to a free fitness centre orientation. You’ll be set up with one of our Wellness Coaches who will take you on a tour of the fitness centre, ask you what your areas of focus might be and how to achieve them and ensure that you have the knowledge you need to use the equipment in a safe, effective way.
