This is a well stocked YMCA with good cardio equipment, resistance equipment and free weights. YMCA members from other cities may want to consider utilizing this Y's small but appealing fitness floor because your entry is free. All others must pay $12.
There are likely closer workout spots for those staying in Edmonton's downtown hotels, but nothing is as HUGE as this unique facility. Kinsmen is a massive recreational that encompasses a Field House and Aquatic Center.
- Community Center
- Swimming Pool
This community college is a unique workout venue and proves (once again!) that we do our homework. We recommend it primarily for its wonderful lap pool, a true competition lap pool in downtown Edmonton.
Unique and unusual workouts are always fun to uncover in cities throughout the World. Along 100th Street, behind the Fairmont MacDonald Hotel is one of the longest staircases we've come across. We counted 200 steps!
- Outdoor stairs
Edmonton's run and bike paths are legendary. Follow 100 Street down behind the Fairmont Hotel to the North Saskatchewan River banks (you'll have to descend a 200 step staircase).
- Running Route
This is our pick for the best health club in downtown Edmonton. The equipment is new, the ambiance appealing, and the location convenient to most of our recommended hotels. The club entrance is part of a highrise tower lobby, so don't look for a door on the street.
