Facing out toward the vista of Citadel Hill, at the corner of South Park and Sackville Streets, the JWL is 70,000 square feet of potential – for healthy activity, for belonging, and for community building – including:

  • Three pools and a state-of-the-art gym
  • Two levels of strength and cardio equipment
  • Indoor walking/running/wheeling track
  • Four studios for classes and programming
  • Childminding centre to support parents and caregivers while they work out

A brand new, modern facility allows us to open with state-of-the-art safety features and procedures right from day one. With so much space to work with, we can welcome a lot of members and participants at the same time, while still keeping everyone safe, distanced and well.
