New Fitness Centre Now Open At Port Coquitlam Community Centre
Residents now have more opportunities to stay healthy over the holidays, thanks to a new state-of-the-art fitness centre in downtown Port Coquitlam.
The opening of the 8,500-square-foot fitness centre at the Port Coquitlam Community Centre (PCCC) continues the rollout of Phase 1 amenities that began in August with two ice arenas, Terry Fox Library, Wilson Lounge and kitchen, a games room, multi-purpose rooms and a concession.
The two-storey fitness centre is a bright, modern space with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the city, mountains and the pool zone below. Visitors will find commercial-quality equipment, cardio and functional training zones, personal and group training, and two bright, well-equipped studios with fitness, yoga, dance and spinning classes.
The equipment includes multiple cardio options (treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent bikes and rowing machines), a Synrgy 360 functional training zone, strength stations, free weights, a wheelchair-accessible circuit, and recognized brands such as Cybex, Precor, Octane and Matrix.
An introductory schedule for ages 12 plus is in place until Jan. 3 (available at www.portcoquitlam.ca/pccc) and features a variety of classes (body sculpt, step, yoga, spin TRX fusion and more) and temporary weight room hours. Regular programming begins in January.
Regular admission rates are in effect, including the new One City Pass offering savings for drop-in swimming, skating, fitness, racquetball/squash and all-ages gym sports across Port Coquitlam. Replacing all previous all-inclusive memberships, the One City Pass is valid at PCCC, Hyde Creek Recreation Centre, and Centennial and Robert Hope Pools.
Those who buy a pass before Dec. 31 will benefit from a two per cent savings and be entered in a draw to win a free one-year family pass (value $1,000+).
The pass will also be valid at the new leisure pool at the PCCC, which will open this spring and complete the Phase 1 of the project.
Phase 2 site preparation and construction is now under way and will bring additional amenities in 2021, such as a 780-seat spectator arena, gymnasium, children’s area, more multi-purpose space, a café, about 425 underground parking spaces, two large pedestrian plazas, outdoor sport courts and a splash park.
Scheduled for completion in late 2021, the PCCC project is replacing aging recreation and library spaces with new and enhanced services to meet the growing community’s needs. Groundbreaking and construction of the PCCC began in 2017, using a phased approach that has allowed existing amenities to remain open until they are replaced. The city is constructing the project with design-build partner Ventana Construction.
Parking in the area is still extremely limited, and will remain so for the remainder of the construction. PCCC visitors are encouraged to give themselves extra time before any scheduled events, and to walk, cycle or take transit whenever possible.
Posted parking limits on site and around the facility are being enforced to ensure parking is available for facility users, residents and customers of nearby businesses.
