Welcome to Yellowknife Racquet Club

A lot of my friends and women I work out with in group exercise class often ask me about the weight room. During these conversations they usually lower their voice and ask to talk to me in private. In very dismissive and sometimes apologetic tones they say, “Maybe one of these days I’ll try the weight room but I don’t want to get too bulky,” or “I want to try lifting weights but the equipment is intimidating and I don’t know what I’m doing,” and most often…”I feel stupid down there. It’s scary”.

As the leaves outside begin to change colour, kids start to go back to school and parkas come out of hiding, it’s nice to distract ourselves with what’s inevitably coming… winter.
