St. Joseph Satellite Centre

St. Joseph Satellite Weightroom and Former Instructor Jeff LindThe Steadward Centre is pleased to be a part of the recently expanded and renovated St. Joseph High School. The satellite facility runs both the Adult Fitness and Lifestyle Program (AFLP) and Stretch N’ Tone programs in conjunction with short term recreational activities and educational seminars in health and fitness.

All programs stress the importance of leading healthy active lifestyles. Long term programs (AFLP and Stretch N’ Tone), more specifically, aim to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscular fitness and flexibility by means of adaptive and regular exercise equipment. A fully multi-station Equalizer gym is centered at the hub of the facility with arm cycles, bikes, free weights, leg curl/extension machine and much more supporting the successful completion of exercise programs at all levels of ability.

In addition to the aforementioned, resources available to members expands tremendously with full access to the St. Joseph Sport Institute. This facility includes a selection of stationary bikes, Stairmaster, leg press and other exercise equipment available in typical community fitness centers.

The Steadward Centre is excited about the many opportunities offered by our facility’s integration into this most impressive high school. Accessibility to both the school and TSC facility are very good. DATS (Disabled Adult Transit System) drop-off and pick-up locations are conveniently located at the main entrance to the school with a short jaunt up to the Centre. For those members driving, there is plenty of free parking in a lot just opposite the main entrance. The school is equipped with power doors, elevators and large accessible washrooms. Interested in grabbing something to eat after your workout? The cafeteria is available to members from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm and, of course, plenty of vending machines to satisfy "the munchies".

The adapted fitness instructor at the Satellite Centre provides exercise programming for all TSC members as well as interested school staff and students (including students with a disability). The coordinator/ instructor is qualified to perform fitness assessments and act as a resource for information on health and wellness and adapted physical activity.
