Posted on September 15th, 2022 in The Shore Recommends, Things to Do in Kelowna

Staying active is important for everyone’s overall health and wellbeing. Even a short workout a couple times a week makes a big difference. Read on to learn more about our top picks for Kelowna gyms and fitness studios. 

Anytime Fitness

If you have an unconventional work or school schedule or you get the urge to work out at unusual hours of the day (or night), Anytime Fitness in Kelowna is the perfect match. You probably figured it out from their name but you can go to their gyms at any time of the day – they’re open 24/7. This modern gym has plenty of up-to-date machines to choose from and access to their coaches for as little or as much motivation as you need to do your workouts.

Try out their 7-day free trial then grab a full membership. With it, you’ll have access to a free, no-pressure fitness consultation and entry to more than 4,500 gyms across the globe so you won’t miss a workout.

The Goodlife Kelowna Capri Centre location is, as one of their reviewers on Google calls it, “a vibe.” State-of-the-art equipment, plenty of space to work out, and classes for all abilities makes this a great all-around gym for everyone.

Usually a 24/7 access gym, Goodlife shortened their open hours during pandemic but will be returning to 24-hour access the first week of September 2022. Special shoutout to their long-running Teen Fitness program that allows teens 12-17 to work out for free all summer long.
