Area: Downtown

The University of Ottawa offers two options for your workout needs. The first is the Monpetit Fitness Centre, which houses one of the only lap pools in downtown Ottawa, and has some run-of-the mill exercise equipment to compliment the laps you're swimming. The other is the Minto Sports Complex, which has two ice rinks, one outdoor multi-sport field, a "Health and Lifestyle centre," two squash courts and a multisports room.  The Health and Lifestyle Centre covers 8,000 square fee and has 40 cardio machines, 26 selectorized weight machines, free weights and more.

Located just five minutes from Monpetit down King Edward Avenue, those willing to plunk down $12.58 have access to both Monpetit and Minto. If you're looking to swim, and turn it into your own personal workout triathlon, drop the Canadian cash at either location and take advantage of a rare double-dip in club access. If you just want to use the health club portion, it's about $8 for a one-time use.

There's no pool at Minto, so take your trunks to Monpetit. Bring a piece of ID to ensure access, along with your cash.

If you do drive, you can secure a 2-hour parking permit in the Sports Complex garage.
