This gym's equipment selection may not be as impressive or abundant as our other recommended health clubs, but on the upside, it is less crowded. Nautilus is located on the 4th floor of an office/retail building. Pay attention because the entrance is easy to miss. Enter through small doors off of St. Catherine Street, walk past the escalators, and take the elevators to the 4th floor.
The one-level space is bright and appealing, and sports a solid selection of Life Fitness cardio equipment and other brands. NP maximizes its small space by neatly organizing the treads, ellipticals, bikes, and steppers in multiple rows just beyond the reception desk. The strength machines and Life Circuit resistance machines are adjacent to the cardio area.
On the other side of the strength machines is the gym's largest space which is dedicated to free weights, Hammer Strength plate-loaded equipment, dumbbells up to 100 pounds, and other muscle building apparatus. The local crowd is a good mix of men and women and not too hard core. Showers and lockers are available, but bring your own towel.
$15 CAD is the going daily admission fee. If you will be in town for longer, you can purchase a 10-day pass for $129. Swimmers must look to another facility as Nautilus Plus has no pool.
