Talisman Centre
More than a gym . . .

T alisman Centre is a world-class sport and wellness facility right next to downtown and we’re celebrating
25 years of serving Calgarians and inspiring achievement. With over 250,000 square feet of space,
there’s room under our roof for both high-performance athletes and everyday athletes trying to reach their
fitness goals. Talisman Centre boasts five gymnasiums, two running tracks, four Olympic-sized pools, an
Olympic calibre dive tank, a steam room and 25,000 square feet of cardio and weight training space. We
are adjacent to the 14,000 square foot LifeMark Physiotherapy and Sport Medicine Clinic, and the Cardiac
Wellness Institute of Calgary. We have several board and meeting rooms available to our corporate clients,
with spectacular views of the surrounding Lindsay Park and Elbow river. Our very own Café Santé is on site to
provide the fuel for your workout and on-staff personal trainers are ready to help you personally reach your
fitness potential. Where else do you have the real possibility of working out next to an Olympic medalist?

even sweeter. Whether you’re a high-performance

feel like one at Talisman Centre!

than ever and Talisman Centre has everything you’ll
need to keep fit and have fun doing it. Join one of

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,
