First Steps Wellness Centre (FSWC) is a not for profit recovery facility for peoplewith neuromuscular conditions. Their goal is to improve the quality of life, and promote independence through the integration of innovative exercise-based recovery methods, education, and support services. FSWC was founded in Regina, and have already established a strong reputation there.
This new facility opened in February 2015. It is several blocks from an accessible transit stop and the route does not have sidewalks all the way, but there is usually plenty of parking in their large lot. There are several parking spaces near the entrance that are soon to be re-designated for accessible parking. The gym has several unique stations for specialized exercise, stretching, strengthening, and conditioning. Check out their website or contact the staff of this very accessible facility they would gladly answer any questions you may have.
