“Expensive, well equipped”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Spacious, well equipped with pool, gym and classes. It can be expensive - I use the City-Of-Calgary Gym instead ($5 instead of $15) but it's smaller. Talisman is easy to access and well laid out.

“Excellent Sports Facility”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Easy to access this sports facility, and it is good both for drop in, and also membership. Nice long hours which make it accessible for early morning workouts which I appreciate.

“Sports enthusiasts haven”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I used to do platform diving at the Talisman centre and occasionally work out their after work due to it's convenient location. I've taken my husband to play badminton here and we've dropped in for a swim now and then too. They have a sports therapy centre on site and a large running track.

“Fantastic Facility”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This fitness centre has anything that anyone could want and more! The track and fitness centre have free weights and various equipment for your workout style. Open gyms times are always available (mostly for basketball) and there are a variety of drop in classes of every type (spin, yoga, step, etc). Plus, with the full size pool, steam room and hot tubs, and the Jugo Juice as an after workout refresher, this facility is top notch in my book. It is also reasonably priced for both daily drop-ins ($12.50) and annual memberships.

“Zumba fun”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

I recently joined as a member and have gone swimming a few times with my spouse. Yesterday, I decided to try the Zumba class out.

I had never tried Zumba though had heard about it through friends. It was a blast! Our instructor is a professional dancer and made it easy for us to follow along and learn the steps, even for a first-timer.

I'll definitely be hitting that group fitness drop-in class again.
