The Gabriola Fitness Centre takes the safety and comfort of our members to heart. We’ve made many upgrades to ensure that the facility is following the guidelines and regulations as set out by the province of British Columbia and Island Health.
Gabriola Fitness is abiding by the province wide restrictions that were announced to begin on August 25, 2021.

Gabriola Fitness does not have a maximum capacity ~ please respect personal space and consider other people’s comfort levels.
IF YOU FEEL UNWELL AT ALL, STAY HOME AND DO NOT COME TO THE GYM
USING A SPRAY BOTTLE PROVIDED AT THE FRONT DOOR TO WIPE DOWN YOUR EQUIPMENT BEFORE AND AFTER USE IS MANDATORY
CLEAN SHOES ARE MANDATORY *Please BRING your shoes in and change into them once you are inside
THE FRONT DOOR IS LOCKED ~ DO NOT OPEN IT FOR ANYONE
We ask members to leave excess bags and items at home or in your car while visiting for your workout. Hand sanitizer is available at the front entrance, and change rooms have become ‘one person at a time’ bathrooms.
The Gabriola Fitness Centre cares about your air quality and air flow. We have open windows plus 3 air purifiers that contain HEPA filters specific for effectively trapping and reducing airborne bacteria, mold spores and particles that carry viruses. The combination of the air purifiers and open windows provides large air flow in a safe way.
We’ve built divider walls around equipment and added plexi glass walls between cardio machines.
Because the Gabriola Fitness Centre is a 24 hour key fob entry facility, the front door is locked at all times. Only members with a key fob, who’ve filled out the appropriate paperwork, will be coming in and out. This means no walk ins off the street. All transactions are done online through our website, by appointment, email, or over the phone.
Every day the facility is cleaned thoroughly. Handles, taps, and all equipment is disinfected and wiped down.
Thank you for your co-operation and super awesome respect of this amazing Island Fitness Centre!!
