VI Fitness—a workout mainstay with 11 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; ladies only facilities host a similar array of gear but in designs tailored specifically for women of varying sizes and strengths, without limitation. The two gym models are otherwise similar, hosting 40 group exercise classes including yoga and high-intensity indoor cycling.
Additionally, VI offers on-site child minding to watch over little ones while secure rental lockers keep personal effects locked up.
