The Alternative Climbing Gym challenges climbers of all abilities with a 30-foot vertical wall in a 1,500-square-foot facility. Expert instructors put students through the paces of ropeless bouldering, the teamwork of belaying, or top-roping, in which a wall scaler ascends with the help of a rope connected to both the climber and the summit. Each climbing variation at the gym enables bodies to build core strength, balance, flexibility, endurance, and stamina while slapping gravity across the face with a glove. All ages of aspiring mountaineers are welcome to use the facility and modern climbing gear, though belaying’s buddy support requires that sturdy helpers be at least 12 years old. Like the moods of adolescent rock faces, the routes change often.

Today, it's undeniable: Jazzercise is a worldwide empire, spanning more than 1,800 locations and 32,000 weekly classes across the globe. It's also hip; gone are the leotards and legwarmers of the 1980s, replaced with a high-intensity blend of cardio, strength training, kickboxing and power yoga performed to hits by chart-toppers from Shakira to Justin Timberlake. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set, with recent additions such as Fusion, Core, and Strike broadening the workouts' variety and application. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers?with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers?are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background. This sense of community keeps Jazzercise devotees coming back, but so too do the results; benefits ranging from weight loss and boosted core strength to increased flexibility and stress relief.

Jazzercise's continued success can be traced to the innovation of its founder, Judi Sheppard Missett. While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, she decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. Little did she know that this ?just for fun? class was the prototype for what would become the Jazzercise sensation.

VI Fitness?a workout mainstay with a dozen locations peppering Vancouver Island?splits its real estate between coed and women?s only gyms. Coed locations line the floors with a wide variety of strength and stability equipment, free weights, and cardio machines; women?s locations host a similar array of gear but in designs tailored specifically for women. The two gym models are otherwise similar, hosting yoga classes and group exercise courses such as VI Fitness?s signature indoor cycling.

Alternatively, each gym?s team of personal trainers creates customized regimens for patrons with the help of the Polar BodyAge system that measures individual fitness levels. The sessions also motivate athletes and ensure they use proper technique, significantly reducing the risk of injury, overexertion, or the embarrassment of accidentally bench-pressing a treadmill. The on-site child minding watches over exercisers? little ones while secure rental lockers keep personal effects locked up.

With all the emphasis placed on high-powered fitness equipment nowadays, it’s hard to believe that our great grandparents stayed in shape before the advent of electricity. Of course, the prevalence of agrarian labour and tyrannosaurus rexes made sure they remained in peak physical condition. The certified personal trainers at Peninsula CrossFit strive to replicate the simplicity of these earlier times by replacing complex machines and equipment with intuitive instruments and functional exercises.

Before each session, men and women alike gather to view the day’s routine, which the instructors usually scrawl on a black wall with chalk. The warehouse-like facility keeps things simple with straightforward gear, including free weights, medicine balls, and chin-up bars. An outdoor area also allows groups to bolster heart rates and chase down rogue tractor tires during running drills.

Odyssey Health & Fitness Centre's staff of personal trainers and kinesiologists understands it's hard to keep fitness goals when juggling a full schedule, which is why their facilities are open 24 hours a day and armed with high-tech security systems. Experienced instructors lead classes ranging from Spinning to power yoga, and those who want to sweat to iPod tracks of their own mother's heartbeat can jam out on stair climbers, rowing machines, and treadmills stationed near 50-inch plasma TVs. To complement exercise regimens, the Sports Nutrition Advisor teaches healthy eating habits, imparting students with the ability to weave with ease through the winding world of nutritional-chart hieroglyphics and toppling food pyramids.
