The Works’ staff of more than 280 trained professionals—most of whom are students or alumni of Memorial University of Newfoundland—keep St. John’s citizens of all ages in motion via a host of fitness, aquatic, and leisure programs.
At the Field House, bolstered by shining glass walls and gleaming courts that reverberate with the sounds of running feet, guests unleash their inner athletes with facilities that include an indoor track, an air-conditioned gym, and a spin studio. Lifeguards patrol The Aquarena’s watery expanses, ensuring that lanes remain free of cannonball-induced traffic jams. Swim instructors guide pupils through all levels of lessons in the pool, and public, family, and super swims elicit squeals of glee with a dangling Tarzan rope and an inflatable obstacle course.
Champions of bringing the community together through health-building activities, staffers host children’s and youth programs designed to channel youthful energy as well as a seniors' fitness program that fosters well-being in a welcoming social setting.
