The McLennan Fitness Centre, located in the west wing of Ecole Providence, is now in its third year of operation, opening in the fall of 2015 and celebrating its official grand opening in September 2016.
Over that 3-year period, the fitness centre has evolved into a first rate facility that continues to acquire new equipment such as the recently purchased Smith Machine, a weight machine that can be used for a wide variety of exercises and a new treadmill has also been added to the existing lineup.
The centre is also broadening its fitness concept to reflect the needs of the membership and the community.
The centre is planning yoga and dance classes along with other activities such strongest man and strongest woman competitions.
These activities will be open to the public as well as members.
Wifi service is now available in the facility and another recent acquisition is a new Bluetooth speaker system in every room.
McLennan Fitness Centre members can also use Ecole Providence School gym for sports activities on Mondays and Tuesdays from 7 to 9pm.
In an effort to make the centre more accessible to the community, the McLennan Recreation Board has developed new membership packages such the monthly, group and buddy system memberships, and specific memberships for college students and seniors.
