YWCA Health + Fitness Mobile App and Member Portal

Our new member portal, including court bookings, is now launched!

Here is the link to our new member portal: https://ywcafitness.clubautomation.com/. This link is also posted on the home page of our website, beside member alerts.

Please log into the member portal with the same credentials you use for our mobile app. The member portal is an alternative platform for desktop users. You'll find mostly the same information and capabilities between the two platforms, however, personal training sessions can only be purchased on the app, not on the portal at this time.

Court users, please note that SportyHQ is now replaced with our new member software effective Monday, Oct 17th. Current bookings have been transferred over to the new software and all new court bookings can be easily made through the app or portal. Members without court access can also book a court, fees will be charged at time of booking.

If you haven't downloaded our new app yet, it is available for both Apple and Android mobile devices. Just search for YWCA Health + Fitness Centre in the app or play store and download. After downloading the app, simply click "Register Now" to create your account.

It has been a big learning curve for all of us. If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact comments@ywcavan.org. We hope this will make your YWCA experience all the better!

Finally, we're still waiting for the configuration of our turnstiles at Health + Fitness. If you're a new member or updated your member card, please continue to be patient. Member Services will manually give you access to the facility.

STEAM ROOMS AT FRC

The men's steam room at FRC is currently operating inconsistently. Additionally, due to necessary electrical repairs by Hudson Pacific Properties, the women's steam room is temporarily closed. Please note the steam room is open at the Health + Fitness Centre for your use.​​​

Optional Mask

It's great to see your smiles again! Masks are optional. Please continue to respect people's personal space. Be kind, calm, and compassionate with yourself and to others.

As of April 8, 2022, by order of the PHO, proof of full vaccination is no longer required to access our facilities.

Best Practices at Health + Fitness Centre/Fitness + Racquet Club 

  • Stay home when you are feeling unwell or if you should be isolating
  • Wash hands frequently 
  • Return and sanitize equipment after use
  • Respect personal space - 2m physical distancing is encouraged
  • Consider other people’s situation - be kind, be calm 
  • Let us take care of conflicts. Things won’t always be perfect and conflicts can arise, the rule of thumb is to walk away from the situation and let us know through Member Services or comments@ywcavan.org

 

We hope to see you soon!
