It was in February 2020 that Andre Ibghy (Architect), Nicole Abitan (Director of Finance and Human Resources), Maurice Gabay (Director of Facilities) and Marla Gold (Executive Director) kicked off the renovation project, named Excellence 2020.
The Excellence 2020 project offers a whole new look to the Y, which will be transformed into an improved space where members can meet, work and play. With Excellence 2020, the new Y will compete with all current community centers and fitness centers, increase the value of members' Y memberships, and enhance their overall experience.
This project is made possible by Sylvan Adams and other generous private donors. Here are some of the enhancements members will benefit from:
• A new welcoming members' office and a contemporary community space
• A state-of-the-art, multi-functional fitness center with state-of-the-art gyms and gyms
• Two new group training studios (with wooden floors)
• A modernized race track
The old floor no longer met the needs of the members. In the first stage, it was withdrawn.
The result of these major renovations is an airy, welcoming and bright space. The two halls adjacent to the multi-functional training center are now equipped with a sports floor made of Canadian maple engineered wood. This floor from the manufacturer BOEN Sport combines the warmth of wood and sporty performance. Actiflex Stadium protects the joints of athletes with its ability to absorb the shocks of jumps and jumps.
The major advantage over other wooden sports floors is the speed of installation thanks to a patented click system and factory pre-varnishing of the surface.
