YMCA (Bank Street)

99 Bank Street
Ottawa, ON K1P 6B9
Area: Downtown

Located in the basement of the downtown Sun Life Financial Centre (Level B1) high-rise office building, this community center is a popular sweat spot for the local work crowd. All cardio and strength equipment is dispersed throughout one large open space. It's small yet cozy with enough top-notch fitness machinery to make our cut. You'll find a mix of newer and moderately used treadmills, the Technogym models have televisions built in, and a few new bikes, ellipticals, and rowers (mostly Technogym as well).

Muscle pumpers are treated just as kindly by a good array of dumbbells, free weights, Trotter weight-stations, and a few Hammer Strength free weight machines. There's also a Crossfit setup.

Some classes are available to the public, but due to the club's size constraints, the most popular group sessions (e.g., Spin) are offered to members only. No swimming pool on-site either.

Admission is $15/day; bring an ID and a lock for a locker, towels are provided.

Getting there: Find the 99 Bank office tower, walk through the lobby and into the concourse, then take the staircase down.
