Welcome to Norfolk Fitness


NFC is a full-service training facility with over 9000 square feet of workout space including cardio equipment, weight machines, and free weights.  We’ve got a little bit of everything, for everyone.

To all of our valued members and guests:

Norfolk Fitness Centre will be opening VERY soon. Our current estimate is Monday December 6th at 6 am, a little over 3 weeks from today. (Please regularly check for updates on this page.) Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us with all of the great feedback. We know you are anxiously, patiently, and dare I say, even angrily waiting for us to get open. We need a bit more time. Trust me when I say it will be worth the extra wait.

Believe it or not, at the start of lockdown #3 (almost 7 months ago), we placed multiple orders for supplies and equipment to improve the facility. We had hoped to renovate while we were mandated to be closed. Unfortunately much of the core materials were only delivered a short time ago and we have been working tirelessly to get the work done before we re-open. We are getting close but we need a little more time. We cannot wait to show you what we have done! The facility looks better than it ever has in the 25 years we have owned it.

As previously mentioned, we may temporarily have modified hours while we get full staffing in place. Our intention is to ramp right back to normal pre-Covid hours,  7 days a week as quickly as we can. Our focus is on getting opened and then increasing the hours as we are able. If the stars align, we may be able to avoid this and run our full hours of operation once we re-open. We are having a few staffing challenges – if you are interested in a full-time, afternoon desk position, please forward your resume to ken@travelodgesimcoe.com

Both the Men and Ladies changerooms and shower areas will be opened. We are now hoping to have the pool area opened when we re-open the facility.  We are doing our best, stay tuned.

Once we have our grand re-opening, we will re-activate your membership the day you come back. As previously mentioned, initially there won’t be a blanket re-starting of all memberships on our re-opening date.

Also as previously stipulated, session times will be eliminated. There will not be a time limit on your visit, there will not be a start and stop time other than the hours of operation.

All guests and members will need to show your proof of vaccination (digital or a print-out) and ID to get in just as you already do in restaurants and cinemas. Everyone will need to have that proof and your identification with you, every time you visit. 

Once again, we would like to extend a big thank you for your patience and understanding through all of this. Most everyone we have spoken to has really given us great feedback. We can’t wait to re-open and share with everyone all of the great improvements we have made to the facility while we have been closed.

If in the meantime you would like a refund for the time you have remaining on your membership, please email me at ken@travelodgesimcoe.com and include your mailing address as to where you would like the cheque to be mailed. If you are content to leave your membership on hold a little bit longer, you do not need to do anything. Your membership remains on hold with the exact number of days remaining on your membership from when we either closed or when you requested us to put your membership on hold.
