Fitness FAQs

1. I'm a fitness first timer. Do you have a trainer who can show me how to use the equipment?

Our fitness trainer, Glenn Hascarl, is scheduled through the week and is available to answer your questions about training, fitness etiquette, and how to use the equipment. We also offer a self-directed fitness guide for fitness first timers that may be helpful.

2. What should I wear to the Fitness Studio?

Wear running shoes, workout shorts or pants and a loose fitting top. Bring a water bottle if you have it though there is a water fountain in the Fitness Studio.

3. I have a fitness pass but I was very sick and unable to attend. Can I get a time credit applied to it?

There are occasions when passes may be extended because of medical conditions. Contact Reception for more information.

4. What does the "C" mean in front of some programs listed in the recreation guide?

The Community Centre partners with some independent fitness providers/businesses to provide recreation fitness programs. Those programs are indicated by the "C".

5. Can I bring my gym bag into the Fitness Studio? What should I do with my valuables?

The Fitness Studio would be swamped if all our visitors brought their gym bags with them. Please leave them in a locker or in your car. That's the same place you should leave your valuables. And never leave them in an unlocked locker; regretfully your valuables will be stolen. Ask at Reception if you don't have a lock.

6. What about fitness etiquette?

There are some simple rules of etiquette that make sharing a fitness area enjoyable for everyone:

  • Let someone share the equipment with you; don't rest on the equipment in between sets
  • Wipe down the equipment when you are done - even if you think you don't sweat! (Hint: everyone does!) Wipes are available in the Fitness Studio and Annex.
  • Leave your cell phone home at home.
  • Put your equipment away using it for the next person
  • We strive to be a fragrance free building. Sharing fitness equipment should not meaning sharing your bottle of AXE or Chanel No. 5, too. Save them for your post work out coffee stop.
