How to register and book your workout

Download the mywellness app on your mobile and create an account.

To help manage and maintain numbers within the building—and to ensure there’s a spot ready just for you—members must book their workout in advance using the mywellness app, or by calling (905)-845-3417.

The wellness floor is available for booking in 30-minute time blocks; members can book up to two (2) consecutive 30-minute blocks per day.

Fitness classes and lane swims appear as 60-minute blocks which includes workout, arrival, and departure times. There is no limit to number of blocks members can book per week.

Masks and Wellness Check

All members must wear a mask within the facility; they may remove their masks when working out. Members and staff must also complete a wellness check prior to entering the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA. This check may be completed up to two hours prior to arrival.

Doing a health screening is as simple as going online to the Wellness Check page, and quickly answering three (3) questions. Once you have completed the screening, you will:

  • either see a green screen signifying you are clear to enter the facility
  • or a red screen letting you know you will need to wait a bit longer before visiting us (we’re sorry, but its for the safety and benefit of us all)

Once you have received a green screen, you may proceed to show the staff located at the front desk, where they will then take a quick temperature check. Provided your temperature does not suggest a fever, you may scan your membership card and enter the facility.

Please note:

  • These wellness checks must be done within a two-hour window before entering the facility

Arrival procedure

  • Members should arrive 15 minutes ahead of class schedule to complete mandatory temperature check and pre-screening questionnaire
  • A YMCA staff member will check your temperature and ask pre-screening questions before you participate in the class

  • When you register, you will select a bike number or yoga mat location number; they are clearly marked and are only yours for the duration of the class
