Welcome to UBC Recreation Fitness!

The BirdCoop Fitness Centre is dedicated to bring a fun and friendly environment to all of the UBC students, staff/faculty, and surrounding community members. Here at the BirdCoop we offer a wide variety of fitness activities for all fitness levels ranging from starter programs and classes to boot camps, group and individual personal training, as well as Be Fit and Cycle Fit classes.

The BirdCoop Fitness Centre is also home to a climbing cave that is open during club hours to climbers of all abilities. Various routes of different levels have been set up and are changed on a regular basis. Membership to the BirdCoop Fitness Centre includes access to the climbing cave.

Our staff strive to create a clean and safe environment, where you are encouraged to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. We want you to feel great, not only from your workout, but from the experience and friends you make while training here.
