With my annual pass I go to the drop-in gym about 3 times/week. They have a huge selection of cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights, so you can get in any kind of workout you want. They just re-vamped the gym section with new machines and it looks great. It is never too crowded either. I've never had a gym routine before and so far I'm going strong here! Oak Bay Rec also has a TON of programs/classes to choose from, and a pool.
