Fitness Centre Highlights
Our cardio room is packed with Precor and Life Fitness equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes (both upright and recumbent), rowing machine and a stairmaster. Our Life Fitness circuit is also located in the cardio room consisting of 9 different user-friendly machines.
Our weight room comes with all the staples you’d want and expect, such as a squat rack, smith machine, and leg press, as well as many other pieces that will ensure you get a full body workout. We have cable machines as well as plate loaded, and we offer a full range of dumbbells, an area for floor work and a set of suspension straps, just to name a few.
Our studio space offers a little more privacy and room. This space has kettlebells, bars, weighted balls, benches, and some extra equipment such as an S-drive machine, upright bikes and rowing machine.
We have separate male, female and family/gender inclusive change rooms equipped with showers, individual change stalls and day use lockers. You must bring your own lock and towel. Our male and female change rooms are also equipped with dry saunas. Our family/gender inclusive change room has a change table for infants, as well as a wheelchair accessible washroom.
Our gymnasium is used for all of our fitness classes. Most classes are drop in, however some classes do require sign up as there is limited equipment available (such as group cycling). All required equipment is provided for classes and programs. Members are welcome to use the gymnasium when no organized programs or maintenance is scheduled. The general public can use the gymnasium during scheduled open gym times, as indicated on the fitness schedule.
Our squash court is available to book one day in advance, and we do have equipment available. Please contact Membership Services for court availability.
Lockers are available to members and participants while they are using the facility. Please lock all valuables or if possible do not bring them into the Y. You may use lockers only while you are in the building.
All members are welcome to participate in a staff led orientation. If you are uncertain how to use a piece of equipment, or which exercises you should be doing, our trained staff are there to help!

How old do you have to be to go in the cardio room?Newfound Marketing2023-10-12T13:36:33-02:30
The cardio room is open to anyone ages 16 or older. In order for ages 13-15 to access our cardio room on their own, they must be active members and have completed our Teen Orientation training program. This is a one time course that will prepare youth to be in the facility unsupervised and follow the YMCA guidelines, such as expected etiquette and how to properly use equipment to avoid injury. Ages 10 and older who are active members are able to use the cardio room, however they must have a parent/guardian stay in the cardio room with them (direct supervision).

This varies from day to day and from season to season, but typically the busiest time of the day is from 4:30 – 7:30pm, when everyone is finishing work and school for the day. This is also the time of day when we offer programming in the pool and gymnasium, so traffic in and out of the building is increased as well.
We do not currently have any certified personal trainers on staff. However our Cross Training Staff are qualified to not only walk you through how to use all of the equipment in our facility, but they are able to provide you with a workout program as well. They will meet with you to discuss your goals, current activity level, and any limitations you may have, and then provide you with a schedule that works best for you. They will provide you with tracking sheets showing you which exercises and how many repetitions to complete, and even take you through them to make sure you feel confident in what you are doing!
Our cross training staff are able to demonstrate how to properly use all of the equipment in both our cardio and weight room. Our cardio equipment all come with an easy “Quick Start” option that allows you to work at your own pace with no programming required. The majority of our circuit equipment is located in our cardio room and is extremely user friendly for those who feel intimidated by the weight room but still wish to work on muscle growth.
Facility users must bring their own locks as we do not provide them. Lockers are available to all participants while they are using the facility, and we encourage everyone to lock up all valuables. If possible do not bring valuables into the YMCA, as we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Locks left overnight will be removed and the contents will be placed in the lost and found area.
Facility users must bring their own towels as we do not provide this service.
