How to Join

Come into the Wellness Institute at 1075 Leila Avenue to join or ask for a facility tour with an exercise specialist.

Fill out a health risk questionnaire

We want members to start off safely and will use this information to personalize your assessments. Depending on your current health and family history you may be offered stress tests, physiotherapy assessments or spirometry tests.

Start with expert help

An exercise professional will review your personal health information and interests and prescribe a custom exercise program in our Personal Wellness Plan. Book an equipment orientation to have an exercise professional show you how to get started safely on our cardio or resistance machines.

Receive an initial InBody body composition screening

Learn more about your body’s makeup like amount and location of fat and muscle, and calories burned while resting (BMR) and imbalances in your body. Additional screenings are available for a fee to help you track changes over time.

Book a Personal Wellness Plan follow-up

After three months — or, once per year — you may book a follow-up meeting to assess your progress.

Members may waive any or all included assessments.

Photo gallery or guided tour

While the best way to experience our facility is in person, photos aren't a bad place to start. If you decide to come in for a free tour, no appointment is needed. Just stop by the front desk and we will call a Wellness Consultant who can show you around and answer your questions. Our Consultants are not sales people, but exercise specialists who provide member support on the floor and through personal wellness plan appointments.

In the meantime, we have created a gallery to show the amenities and state-of-the-art equipment you will find here.
