Our Story

About our centre

Our flagship location on Hornby Street is a 30,000 square-foot co-ed fitness facility and pool that offer a friendly and supportive environment in the heart of downtown Vancouver. With our second location, the Fitness + Racquet Club at 1055 Dunsmuir Street, we've added squash/racquetball courts and more workout areas. Members have access to both locations, just a five-minute walk apart!

Our Commitment

Since our beginning in 1897, YWCA Metro Vancouver has promoted physical activity. As early as 1915, we had a variety of physical training classes for women, a grass hockey club and a girls' basketball team.

With each passing decade, we have continued to evolve to meet the changing needs of our community. In 1994, we opened our flagship Health + Fitness Centre as a co-ed facility.

Our commitment to the community's health and wellness will always be a driving force behind YWCA Health + Fitness.
