Dalplex is turning 40! Celebrate with us from Nov. 4‑10.

Posted by Amanda Kirby-Sheppard on October 28, 2019 in Current News

Dalplex officially opened 40 years ago, on November 5, 1979!

Read on DalNews: Celebrating 40 years of fitness.

A lot has changed in four decades (and we aren't just talking about the clothes and hairstyles!) and since we have so much to celebrate, we thought we'd throw a week-long party!

Please join us from November 4-10 for complimentary snacks, special 40th anniversary treats, prize giveaways, free towel service, retro music and so much more!

Dalplex's 40th Anniversary Week Highlights:

  • A chance to win 1 of 40 prizes, including our grand prize, the Ultimate Dalplex Member Experience: winter term shower towel service & locker rental, personal training consultation, gift certificate for Dal Physiotherapy Clinic assessment and treatment, and a Dalplex swag bag
  • Free shower towel service all week
  • Free daily healthy snacks or treats
  • Bring A Buddy weekend (Nov. 8-10) with complimentary guest admission for members/full-time Dal students*
  • Group fitness classes will feature retro music from the last 40 years**
