Fitness Centre

The most recent development of the Bruce II Sports Centre was the renovation of a lobby area in 2004 to develop a fitness centre. At the time, it was uncertain of the exact demand for such a facility, but in five short years has become overwhelmed with the usage rate by residents. Currently, the small facility houses three treadmills, two elliptical trainers, two stationary bicycles, one Stairmaster and two weight consoles.

With such tremendous activity at the fitness centre, the Town has recently undertaken an expansion of the facility that entails the construction of a second floor above the curling rink to accommodate an expanded fitness centre that will house additional equipment and offerings to residents. The development of flooring above the curling rink will provide an additional 465 square meters (5000 square feet) of space to the facility. This will provide ample space for the expansion of the fitness centre, while providing leisure space that can be utilized for various other groups that now compete for available spacing (including aerobics, group meetings, Thai Kwan Doe and pilates).

The Fitness Centre offers:
• Treadmills
• Exercise Bikes
• Arc Trainers
• Stepper
• Multi-Stations
• Weight Room
• Indoor Track
