“Fitness in the city”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The Talisman Centre is a wonderful fitness facility dedicated to the inner city's population. Situated on the river, just across from Stampede Park, it has lots of parking and is easily accessed from MacLeod Trail South. It has a large selection of workout stations for just about any discipline you enjoy, at reasonable rates. I love working out in a place where I can see outside while I exercise. Especially in winter when the sky is still blue and the sun is shining off of the snow.

“Great Facility, Convenient Location.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Asa new Calgarian, I was pleased to find this fitness facility for my workouts. It has amazing gym, amazing pools, track, great classes and so on. I take the family for swim lessons and I use the place almost every day. Excellent pricing for memberships. Highly recommend this place.

“Why is this an attraction?”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

I brought my nieces here, but everyone was a little disappointed at the options here.

It was pricey for being a rec centre. I know of other pools that are less expensive that have more to do.

West Edmonton mall, now there is an attraction! A much higher cost, but worth going out of ones way to visit while in the city.

This place was very generic and is not something I would recommend. Probably okay for locals, but not what I expected for TRIP advisor, I expect MUST see places.

“Complete sports complex”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

This complex is a great destination for a few hours of fun physical activity. I use a 10 visit pass and make the most of each, usually checking out a class, playing some basketball, using the vast range of gym equipment, swimming a few laps of one of the 2 pools, and finishing up with a relaxing steam session. Lockers are plenty, staff are friendly, the facilities have always been clean.

If you're on a budget, it's worth taking advantage of their cheap rates if entering 1.5hrs or less before closing time. It's quiet and it still gives you plenty of time to use a range of the available facilities.
