Our fitness facility has everything you need to get fit (or keep fit if you are ahead of the game). We have a selection of great equipment, and even something our trainers call “the cage” (we promise it’s not as scary as it sounds). At the JCC we believe in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Working out shouldn’t be an intimidating occasion. If you don’t know how to use a piece of equipment, feel free to ask the weight room monitor for some help. And if you are really unsure, book a session or two with a personal trainer to get used to the equipment. Working out should be an enjoyable experience. Come on, we know you can do it!

The JCC has implemented the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP) in line with the City of Calgary Vaccine Passport Bylaw. This program requires that all members and patrons 12 years and older accessing our building provide a valid Alberta vaccine record with a QR code (paper or digital), a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service or a medical exemption letter.
