Designed to deliver unparalleled results, for first-time users and professional athletes alike, our array of Cybex strength and cardio machines, as well as free weights, are ideal for sport team training, conference delegate activities, and physical rehabilitation programs.

From the main floor, a series of wheelchair friendly, glass encased ramps take you past several cosy alcoves and nooks to the floor above, where a fourth breakout space, the Jerry Johnston Room, looks out to the ski hill base and adjoins the athlete training facilities. Although one of the smaller breakout rooms, the Jerry Johnston room is our most popular, with its floor to ceiling windows looking out to the ski lift. This room was named in honour of a local Kimberley resident, and Founding President of the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing, for his lifetime of dedication to disabled winter sports.
