About Us

The vibrant good health and sense of physical well-being that comes with getting fit is only a hop, skip and jump away from you, at Columbus Centre.

Inside this impressive 10-acre “country club” complex are fitness facilities and programs to suit every taste: from aerobics to yoga, aquafit classes, private swimming lessons, squash, tennis, luxury health club facilities and weight training, to name just a few. Few facilities in Canada offer all this.

We are open seven days a week, so drop in for a tour or, even better, take advantage of our free guest pass and find out why you belong here.

Because it’s all yours at Columbus Centre!
