A little of everything

Place has everything for a workout or for a family day. I think the prices are reasonable and lots of things going on.

This is by far my favourite workout facility so far. It is spacious and clean. The 200 meter track is great. The whole family can work out doing different things ( swim, run, weight lift or take a class) which is a big bonus.

A huge selection of gym equipment, most fairly new. Of course, if you're into swimming this is the place you'll want to go to -it's got two Olympic-sized pools! Convenient parking close to Macleod makes it easy to access. It's a bit pricey for one-time use, but monthly family passes are a relative bargain, especially when compared to other over-priced...

The Talisman Centre is the best place of it's kind that I have ever been too. It is truly top notch. Yes, $13 is a bit pricey, but you can stay as long as you like and use all the facilities and classes. (Of course, memberships are available for regulars). Also, you can come for the last 90 minutes of... More

I was a bit sticker shocked when I found out what admission to the Talisman was going to cost me, the seniors rate at $8 is a much better deal. Mind you if you were going to spend the day and use the pool and the gym I guess $13.50 is worth it. They had a good selection of gym... More

Drop in or sign up, it's the best public work out facility in the City - bar none. Swimming, diving, 200 metre track, 2 full sized basket ball courts, convertible to volley ball, badminton, a cardio area that's like 5 to 6,000 sq. ft. Weight rooms, Bike lounge, etc. Nice staff and locker areas, concessions - and good parking just... More

I found the staff knowledgeable. The courses I took there were very helpful. I loved there 50 m pool. The running track also fun to train on however it is not an official sized running track. I have friends how played basketball there and they seemed to enjoy it. There is a heavy humidity to the air. Mostly because of... More
