“A Big Thumps Up To The Durham (Fitness)Recreation Centre My daughter (age 30) and myself (age 60) were visiting relatives in Durham and had the opportunity to work out at your centre …
It was a very positive experience: -*The staff was friendly and informative. *The locker room and sauna are very clean and user friendly. *You have state of the art cardio and weight training machines which suits all ranges of fitness levels/goals from the heavy weight lifting muscle man to the the petite woman who wants to stay trim and toned. *The entire facility is very, very clean. *I did not have the opportunity to participate in classes. However, it does appear there is a range of choices.
I have been in gyms throughout the US, Canada and China. Yours is right up there in the top 5. It is amazing this facility is profit-free with most positions being held by volunteers!
Thanks again for providing this state of the art facility that promotes wellness in its local residents and visitors.

“I AM SO GLAD I JOINED! I joined the DAC about a year ago, when I noticed that I was getting a little flabby. After 5 months of working with weights, I started cross-training to get more benefit from working out. Now after the year at DAC, I have reduced my waistline by 4 inches and get by with less sleep. I meet lots of people who are self-motivated and learn different ways to work muscle groups from them and therefore never get tired of any routine before learning another. Coming to the Durham Activity Centre is now part of my weekly routine and I look forward to it each day. Thanks DAC! ” This is an older testimonial-It has no expiry date as the gym, staff and members welcome and assist new members to fit in and to take many steps forward in their progress to a healthier lifestyle.
“…The wide range of classes and equipment available at the gym help me incorporate strength training, cardio, flexability and endurance into my weekly routine. … The gym is a great place to spend time with your family and friends while making a significant contribution to better personal health and fitness.”
“… The folks at the center are friendly and incredibly helpful. Both Cathy and I love the welcome and support we’ve received there. … Thanks to everybody, staff and volunteers!!!”
“I have been a member of the Durham Fitness Centre for about three years. I have been training with Tasha for most of that time doing a weight lifting program once a week with her. When I started I was very out of shape without much muscle strength. I lost 15-20 lbs over this time frame and now have a much improved level of fitness. I also have enjoyed Jodi’s Step classes for cardio. Since doing cardio is my least favourite, Jodi’s classes have been a really fun way to improve in this area for me.
I really enjoy coming to the gym with it’s new facilities. Also the staff are very supportive and helpful, making for a good experience all around.”
