Health and Fitness Centre

Stay well, stay independent

The Health and Fitness Centre is a welcoming space for older adults to access healthcare and exercise in a comfortable, accepting and barrier-free setting. Strength and mobility are important factors in remaining independent and enjoying our retirement years. Exercise, and in particular strength training, has been shown to improve muscle mass, balance and mobility, blood pressure and bone density. It provides significant psychological benefits as well.

The fitness centre is filled with state-of-the-art exercise machines and an accessible, indoor salt water swimming pool. Everything is designed with seniors in mind and to achieve fitness and mobility goals in the most effective and safe way possible.

You can drop by the pool for a quiet swim and join one of our fun group exercise classes, happening twice a week. A kinesiologist is on-hand to provide fitness assessments and develop custom fitness programs or to offer personal coaching sessions on a pay-for-service basis.
