Fitness centre provides access around the clock

A sports injury led Joel Gregg to set up a new gym which provides its members with 24-hour access to fitness equipment.

A sports injury and the subsequent rehabilitation process led Joel Gregg to set up the Jubilee Fitness Centre, a gym which provides its members with 24-hour access to fitness equipment.

The knee injury, a twisted anterior cruciate ligament occurred during a hockey game. Afterward, as he was working on the rehabilitation, he sought out a gym where he could continue to train, to avoid another sports injury in the future.

The municipality’s fitness centre at the aquatic centre was busy and the hours were not always convenient for Gregg’s schedule, so he opted to set up his own gym.

As he set up the gym, he chose to bring in additional equipment and set up a gym for the community.

The centre includes cardio machines such as treadmills and exercise bikes, free weights and weight training machines.

It also has an area where small fitness classes could be conducted.

“It’s not a huge facility,” Gregg said of the gym in the basement of the Jubilee Dental Centre.

Other equipment may be added if there is a demand.

At present, the facility offers the fitness equipment, but it does not have a professional trainer or fitness instructor.

“Right now, it’s just a self-serve gym” Gregg said. “I’m providing the space and the equipment.”

Because there are no staff members present, he said the gym is not designed for beginners but rather for those who have some knowledge of how to use the fitness equipment.

In addition, those joining the gym must sign a waiver.

There are 16 members registered at present.
