The revamped fitness centre opened July 1, 2010. It provides over 3500 square feet of floor space, accomodating 12 pieces of cardio equipment including treadmills, cross-trainers and bikes (LifeFitness). Many of the cardio-equipment have built in private TV’s. Bring your own earphones and watch your favorite tv show while you work-out!
There are 9 Hammer-Strength Stations. Hammer-Strength machines feature the most advanced strength training technologies.
The free-weight area has been expanded with new free weights, bench press, 4 benches and the popular Smith Machine.
A great addition is the Krank, a limited mobility machine ideal for those in a wheelchair or with limited mobility. As well there are 2 other machines (Dual Adjustable Pully & the Multi-Jungle) that can be adapted for limited motion, physical limitations and ideal for rehab patients.
