The instructors are knowledgeable and are always on hand to offer advice and encouragement.

I have lived in Cochrane for over 13 years and during this time SLS Centre has become an important part of my life. Growing up, running and now at 56 after years of competitive track, my hip just won’t take the impact anymore. Three years ago, I realized I had to explore new ways of keeping fit that did not necessarily involve constant high impact exercise. I decided to change things up and to concentrate on resistance as well as aerobic exercise.

Exercise to me — as well as keeping me in good shape — serves as a stress relief from my busy job as an RN and I really enjoy the friendly and informal environment that exists at SLS Centre. I love working out with other people as it exceptionally motivating as well as being very social. Through my work, I know how important regular and varied exercise is for both body and mind. I try to work out each day Monday to Friday, with a variety of classes including spin, dynamic lifting, tabata and bootcamp.

What I really love about SLSFSC is the wide variety of classes offered for every level of fitness. The instructors are knowledgeable and are always on hand to offer advice and encouragement, even if some days they nearly kill me! The combination of excellent facilities, wide range of classes and outstanding instructors means that there is something for everyone whatever your age and ability at SLS Centre. The membership fee is exceptional value for an adult membership: I more than get my monies worth!
