Community members of all fitness levels are joining the on-campus UVic community and alumni at the 190,000 sq. ft. CARSA. Why? No other local fitness centre offers this active, inclusive and open of a recreation environment with such a wide range of opportunities:

Both new and experienced climbers learn and practice in a safe, fun environment that also includes instructional courses, team building opportunities and even birthday parties!

Reason 2: Not into climbing? Choose the fitness centre option and head to the two-floor, 20,000 sq. ft. CARSA Fitness Weight Centre to work out with equipment for all fitness levels and abilities, including wheelchair-accessible equipment.

Reason 3: Both fitness and climbing centre membership options feature a select group of included group fitness classes, with the option to further expand activity to up to 40 group classes happening per week during peak months, hosted in dedicated dance, TRX, spin and yoga studios.

Reason 4: Up your game in the squash and racquetball courts. Challenge a friend today and hit the hardwood.

Reason 5: Change up your fitness routine: Drop in for a game in the fieldhouse, make a splash in the 25-metre indoor pool at McKinnon Gym or take a skate around the ice at the Ian Stewart Complex on Gordon Head Road.

Reason 6: Expand your recreation horizons with outdoor equipment rentals as diverse as camping gear and snowshoes.
