Bell Road YMCA
When you are involved with the Y, you help bring about lasting personal and social change. Whether you want to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve your or your family’s health and well-being, or give back and support your neighbours, your involvement with the Y will positively impact those in your community.
Due to the expansion, the facility will close at 6:00 pm on Friday, September 7th and will re-open at 1:00 pm on Sunday, September 9th.
Enjoy a group setting for fellowship, fun and exercise. The Bell Road Family YMCA has a separate aerobics room with a floating wood floor and a SPINNING room with special lighting and sound. We offer several group classes a day with a lot of variety. You can participate in kickboxing, yoga, pilates, step, dance mix, weight training and several others. All classes are for members 16 and older. Members who are 14 and 15 may take classes if accompanied by a parent. All YMCA instructors are certified in Group Exercise Instruction, CPR and First Aid. All of our group exercise classes are included in the cost of your membership.
Our 5,000 square foot Wellness Center has the latest equipment with free weights and resistance training machines. Enjoy our cardio theatre while you exercise on the wide variety of cardio machines. There is a designated stretching and abdominal work area as well. Our adult locker rooms offer sauna, showers and personal lockers.
Health & Wellness
Our positive commitment to programs that strengthen the spirit, mind and body is evident in our fitness programs. Equipment orientation, Personal Fitness Consultation and Fitness testing are FREE TO MEMBERS and great ways to start you on your journey to better health and well-being.
If you are ready to start an exercise program with one-on-one attention and guidance, you may want to consider a personal trainer. Our personal trainers at the YMCA are all certified and are on staff. Fred Shelby, our Wellness Director, will recommend a trainer who best fits your needs.
The Bell Road Family YMCA branch has a designated exercise centre called the Family Cardio Room for parents and children to exercise together. We have a variety of cardio equipment for children as well as adults. Members 11 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult. The Family Cardio Room is open during normal facility hours.
We also offer Kids Classes in the afternoons with our well-trained fitness staff to get your kids up and moving. The age requirement for this facility is 8 years and older.
The Bell Road Family YMCA offers an outdoor pool complex that includes a 25-meter lap pool and a separate kiddie pool. There is a large pool deck with separate shaded “picnic area” and sunbathing lounge chairs. Outdoor hours vary depending on the season and school schedule.
We also have a year-round indoor aquatics complex with 3 separate pools including 6 lanes, 25-yard lap pool. Our indoor waterpark includes a 4 ft deep catch pool with two large water slides & a leisure pool with “zero depth” entry for little ones. This pool is only 1.5 feet deep and has lots of “fun” features like an elephant who squirts water out of his nose with a slide on his side. Lemon drop squirting fountains and a showering fountain pole make this a favourite spot for little swimmers.
Indoor Pool Hours
Next door at our Goodtimes Center, members can enjoy our outdoor water park that features a splash pad, slides and fountains. You can even slide down the “tongue” of a huge frog slide!
We offer group and individual swim lessons all year to members ages 6 months to adult. All of our aquatics facilities have highly trained lifeguards on duty at all times.
The Bell Road Family YMCA offers Childcare with a family membership. While you exercise, you can take comfort in knowing your children will be cared for by our competent, trained, and caring staff. We want you to get the most out of your experience here and we want your children to enjoy their time with us as well. The Child Watch area offers a huge climbing structure with slides for your children to get some physical activity that seems like play. There are separate age-appropriate activities and areas throughout the entire Child Watch centre to keep your children active and involved with our staff.
Child Watch hours are:
- Monday – Friday: 8:00 am – 1:15 pm & 3:30 pm – 8:00 pm
