Recently Taylor and I have become Members at the Medicine Hat YMCA for the affordable “Couple’s Membership” of about $60 total per month.

Everyone is probably familiar enough with the YMCA, but I was impressed with just how much they have. Included in the most basic packages is access to the fitness area, which has a dozen treadmills, bikes and stair masters, circuit training room and fairly complete weight room. You also get access to the gymnasium and racquetball/squash courts. If you want a little more, you can join the Health Club, which then grants access to hot tubs and a more exclusive work out area.

From the YMCA Medicine Hat website, you can view upcoming activities and annual events, find out how to volunteer, ongoing charities, and more.

The only quarrel I have with the Medicine Hat YMCA is that their website was done by Look Matters, a Regina-based design company. Why is this a bad thing? Because the YMCA always promotes being “so local”, and advertises on their website that “We build strong kids, strong families, strong communities”, but where is the strength in community if they go out of the city for their design needs?

All in all, the YMCA is an affordable and enjoyable place to go and exercise. If you are at the downtown YMCA and see someone biking or stomping abnormally loud on the treadmill while laughing at their iPod, that is probably me. just came out with a new website showcasing their huge selection of hot tubs. They also offer a line of tanning beds, saunas and gazebos, and if that was not enough, they are also the exclusive dealer in Medicine Hat for Softubs.

Behind the website and in the store is the owner, Eldon Wells; a well-known name in Medicine Hat, and a friendly guy to boot. If you are looking for a hot tub, sauna, tanning bed or gazebo, be sure to check out Hot Tub X-Press, their collection of over twenty different kinds of tubs alone sets them above the crowd.
