Clean and spacious are words commonly used by guests at Avid Fitness. We have over 6000 square feet with 14-foot high ceilings and an airy, open floor plan. Machines have been positioned so users can easily socialize while exercising, but not feel cramped as they might in an urban gym.
Most of our strength equipment is Canadian-made APEX except for our deluxe Matrix Functional Trainer.
Our cardiovascular pieces are a mix of StarTrac and new, eco-friendly SportsArt machines.
We have a large, carpeted stretching area where people can feel comfortable spreading out on the floor to do planks & core exercises.
The Studio, where our classes are taught, is even more spacious and can easily accommodate a very active class of 12. It is fully equipped with its own set of stability balls, power-bands, weight bars and dumbbells and has a unisex washroom.
Men's and women's change-rooms are equally roomy with large central common areas and private, secure changing rooms — each with their own private showers. The amenities baskets on the vanities are always full — toothpaste, talc powder, razors, shave cream, deodorant — everything that you need to freshen up with after a workout. Day-lockers are free. We hand out locks and complimentary towels as members check in.
Air handlers operate throughout the entire day, bringing in fresh air and maintaining a constant temperature of 66 degrees Farenheit. So even in the heat of the summer, it is cool at Avid Fitness. Unique to Avid though is the large number of green plants grown throughout the facility. Besides contributing to our environment, they add a homey feel.
But the first thing that you see, other than smiling faces, is our specialized running store — right next to the front reception area. It is compact, but in it you will find everything you would expect in a Vancouver or Victoria running shop. And we do custom fitting & custom orders!
