What are you going to do?
It’s a question we hear all the time, and this fall, it’s the question we’re asking our customers. Of course, with all of the
incredible programs and services we’re offering at Talisman Centre in the fall, there’s always something fun to do – just
flip through this guide, and you’ll see what I mean. But we’re also asking what you’ll do when we begin our facility
enhancement project in 2010. You’ll find a few details about the project on the back page of this guide, and even more
information on our website, at www.talismancentre.com/2010. In fact, that website will be updated whenever
new information becomes available, so you should definitely check it out. It also answers some of the most frequently
asked questions regarding the facility enhancement project, and I’d like to review a few of them now.

First of all, the basics: The main tented portion of Talisman Centre will be closing in early 2010 in order to facilitate the
replacement of its roof, along with various other enhancements. The two annex buildings adjacent to Talisman Centre
will remain open, including Gyms 4 and 5, the cardio and fitness areas, and the 50-metre Training Pool. We’ll still have
our remarkable ETS program, the TriClub and Personal Training, but there will be a reduction in the overall number
and variety of programs and services we can offer, including group fitness. As well, to make room for the construction
equipment, our parking lot will be down to a fraction of its current size.

Of course, perhaps the biggest concern for members of Talisman Centre is what will happen to your membership. To
make things as easy as possible, we’ve given you three options. The first option is to do nothing! Your membership will
remain valid through 2010, and since we’re keeping the annex buildings open, you may be able to continue your fitness
routine without much interruption. Depending on your needs, you may wish to wait and see if Talisman Centre is right
for you in 2010, and then make your decision. But, if you’re feeling that Talisman Centre is unable to meet your needs
in 2010, you can do one of two things: You can “freeze” your membership, then resume your membership when we
reopen in 2011, locking in 2009 prices for the duration of that year. Or, you can get a pro-rated refund on the amount
of membership you have left. If you do decide to leave, we will be happy to recommend another facility in the city that
could better meet your needs in 2010, (and we hope you’ll come back to us in 2011!) As we get closer to December, you
may wish to speak to a Customer Service Representative about your plans.

Have a great fall, and give some thought to the question: “What are you going to do?”

Sincerely,

Robin Mitchell
Chief Operating Officer

Memberships at Talisman Centre
Adult (18+)
Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you can’t play!
Our competitive prices and our world-class facility make our adult memberships one sweet deal. With our wide range of
drop-in group fitness classes included with your membership, the deal gets even sweeter. Whether you’re a high-perfor-
mance athletic machine, or an “everyday athlete” looking for the best environment to reach your goals, Talisman Centre is
the place for you!

Couples and Families


A family that plays together stays together!
And if they play at Talisman Centre, they also keep healthy and develop a lifelong love of sport and fitness together! Come
swim in our pool (or play on our giant inflatable water park!), play some sports in the gym, or have a race around the track.
(Or, leave the kids at home and turn your partner into your workout partner!) Get closer to reaching your fitness goals and
get closer to each other with the Couples and Families Membership at Talisman Centre!

Senior (60+)
You may not be a kid anymore, but you may just feel like one at Talisman Centre!
You know that a healthy lifestyle is more important than ever and Talisman Centre has everything you’ll need to keep fit and
have fun doing it. Join one of our many drop-in group classes, or work at your own pace in our fitness centre. Try your hand
at yoga, or take a spin on one of our stationary bikes. Discover what you can do at Talisman Centre.

Post-Secondary (25 and under)


Living the life of a student can be pretty tough.
Late night cramming sessions, the stress of exams, the often less-than-nutritious diet – Balance that equation with a
membership at Talisman Centre! Feel your stress melt away with every lap around the pool, or every basket sunk from the
3-point line. Whatever you do to relax and keep healthy, you can do it at Talisman Centre.

Youth (13-17)
You’re young and carefree – well, almost carefree.
You care about playing sports, having fun, and keeping yourself healthy. Whether you like basketball, swimming, diving,
badminton, dancing, volleyball, kickboxing – or just about anything else you can think of – if you want to hang out and do
what you love, you won’t find a better place than Talisman Centre!

Membership Q&As
Give me the basics - what do I need to know?
1) The tented portion of Talisman Centre (the main building) is closing in 2010 in order to have its roof replaced,
along with other enhancements. The aquatic side will close December 31st, 2009, and the dryland side will
close on February 28, 2010.
2) The two annex buildings adjacent to Talisman Centre will continue to operate, (including a pool, fitness
centre, two gyms, etc.) and your membership will remain valid during this time. There will be no public
drop-in after 3:00 pm every day; only Talisman Centre members will be permitted to enter the facility after
this time.
3) Due to the construction and closure, the size of our parking lot will be substantially reduced, and we will be
unable to offer certain programs and services during 2010.
4) Members have three options:
1. Continue to use the facility during 2010
2. “Freeze” your membership, then resume your membership when we reopen in 2011, locking in 2009
prices for the duration of that year.
3. Cancel, and get a pro-rated refund on the remainder of your membership

What spaces will be available in the annex buildings during 2010?

OPEN HOUSE
The tented, teflon roof above you has been an iconic
part of Calgary’s skyline since Talisman Centre opened
its doors in 1983. Twenty-seven years later, the current
roof is reaching the end of its life cycle, and is ready to
be replaced. The new roof going up in 2010 will be a
major technological and structural improvement over
the existing roof, and at the same time will preserve
Talisman Centre’s unique silhouette.
Come to one of our open houses (see dates below) to
learn more about the space-age technology that will
shape our new roof, and the future of Talisman Centre!
