What Our Members Say

Best gym in the area! Small but very friendly atmosphere, and has all the equipment you need.”

Danielle Fournier

A fantastic gym! Just the right size for a great environment; clean, friendly and non-intimidating. Big enough to have most of the equipment you’ll need without the downfalls of big gyms. No-nonsense contracts, clean bathrooms and great members.”

Tim Blake

Elgin Fitness is a great place to workout and meet new friends, nothing else downtown can compare! The location of the gym is perfect as it is centrally located in the Golden Triangle area of Elgin street. I have worked out in many gyms in Ottawa and none of them compare to the community feel of Elgin fitness. The gym is kept clean and tidy by the friendly staff and the equipment is well maintained. The gym has a very trendy and unique feel and modern wall colours. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a gym in downtown.”

Boris Misljencevic

We’ve been members for a few months now. This is the most low pressure, relaxed gym I’ve been to. It’s small and doesn’t have any classes (other than yoga a few times a week) but that’s not what we were looking for. The machines are well maintained, the change rooms are clean, and the clientele are focused. This is not the kind of gym where it’s more like a social club, but that’s perfect. We love it here.”
