It is sadly official. Nautilus Plus, located at the Cavendish Club in Côte Saint-Luc is closing its doors. The move affects hundreds of longtime members.
This location has been in operation for several decades, offering personal training, fitness and nutrition programs. There is a nice swimming pool, where many youngsters have learned how to swim, racquetball and squash courts and of course a large room of nautilus equipment where people can enjoy socializing and getting into shape.
The club officially close for business on February 29. When I dropped by to find out why it is shutting down, I was told that the lease was up and the company wanted to go in a new direction. Members will be given rebates or offered to use one of the other Nautilus Plus facilities,
There is no question that the opening of our magnificient Aquatic and Community Centre has had an impact on other local health and exercise centres. The swimming programs at our two fabulous pools are going strong. We have a modest workout room overlooking the pool, a room for dance clases, a mini library and soon a café. There is place for youth to congregate, large meeting rooms, headquarters for our seniors and Legion group and a large gymnasium attached to the facility.
