Many people on the west Mountain aren’t aware there’s a top-notch fitness centre nearby that they can join.

“A lot of people in the community may not know this facility exists,” the YMCA’s Genevieve Hladysh says of the David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre at Mohawk College.

In a partnership with the college, the YMCA of Hamilton, Burlington and Brantford has been overseeing programming, customer service and membership services since the centre opened in September 2013.

The 64,000-square-foot centre features three gymnasiums, a fitness centre with over 100 pieces of equipment, a multi-purpose studio and an indoor track.

There are also outdoor basketball and beach volleyball courts, as well as office and meeting space for students and staff.

The monthly membership rate is $40; during October, members of the community can check out the centre for free with a two-week trial membership, says Hladysh. Anyone interested can drop in to the Fennell Avenue West site or call 905-575-2744.
