Get On Up, Get Into It, Get Involved
Where to Go Get Active at Concordia
Concordia University is not only a place where you can sharpen your mind, but also where you can improve your body and get active. Whether it’s through the gym or an intramural league, Concordia has what you need to get yourself going during the school year. But act quickly, spots for these places are filling up fast!
Le Gym (EV Building)
Located on the downtown campus, Le Gym is the university’s main fitness centre. The 10,000 square-foot facility is home to state-of-the-art equipment, including 75 cardio machines and 75 strength stations. Le Gym also offers personal trainers at $25 per hour for your workouts, towel service, and is fully wheelchair accessible.
The two-floor fitness centre offers a variety of dance, aerobics, fitness and martial arts classes during the week. In addition, Le Gym plays host to recreational activities such as basketball, badminton and table tennis.
If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a celebrity or athlete while you work out; Terry Crews, comedian and action star from The Expendables, was spotted at Le Gym over the summer.
A semester membership at Le Gym will set you back $70 if you’re a new member and a Concordia student ($65 for returning student members). The facility is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
Don’t feel like going downtown from the Loyola campus? No problem. The PERFORM Centre is right across the street! It is home to various cardio and weight training equipment, and offers athletic therapy from student athletic therapists under the supervision of certified professionals in the field.
The PERFORM Centre allows gym-goers to work out, as well as participate in research projects that promote the improvement of health and performance. Students can sign up for programs that offer information and activities surrounding weight training, conditioning, healthy eating and cooking.
A membership at the PERFORM Centre will only cost you $60. The facility is open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
If you’re unable to bring glory to Concordia through one of the varsity/intercollegiate sports teams, then you have the option of becoming an intramural hero, or just have fun, in one of our many intramural sports leagues. Concordia has basketball, soccer, ice hockey, ultimate frisbee, volleyball and lacrosse leagues for every type of player, whether competitive or recreational.
Join a year- or semester-long league with your friends or compete against them and achieve the highest of bragging rights. Act now before slots are gone and the season begins.
Bee Part of the SWARM
Concordia’s athletes are a main fabric of the school and they continue to represent Stinger Nation proudly across the collegiate sport circuit.
During your time at Concordia, grab some buddies and catch a Stingers football—or Stingers “futbol”—game at Concordia Stadium. The Ed Meagher Arena next door is a great spot to catch both the women’s and men’s hockey teams in action.
Our basketball, baseball, wrestling and rugby teams also provide more than enough entertainment. Show your Stinger pride and be a part of the intercity rivalry with other schools such as McGill, UQAM and Université de Montréal.
Not only are Concordia sports often entertaining, they are usually quite light on a student’s wallet. Tickets for Concordia students are $5 for Stingers hockey, basketball and football games, and entry is free for rugby and soccer games.
