Joe Doupe Recreation Centre

Facility Highlights

The Joe Doupe Recreation Centre, operated by Recreation Services, is located in room 030 in the Brodie Centre and serves as the primary fitness and recreation centre at the University of Manitoba Bannatyne campus.  Memberships are available for U of M students, staff and alumni including the general public. The recently renovated facility features:

  • Fitness centre with cardio and weight resistance equipment
  • Multi-use gymnasium
  • Indoor track
  • Multi-use studio
  • Locker and shower facilities

The fitness centre equipment was updated in 2015 with new Precor treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, AMTs, Concept 2 rowers, as well as benches, weights & plates, squat rack, Hi-Lo pulley system and more. Plus some old favourites have stayed like our original squat rack, Woodway Curve, and AMT machine.

We have also recently installed new TRX suspension trainers into our full gym and a new cycle studio.


Recreation Services offers a variety of engaging and energizing programs designed for fun and learning.  From Group Fitness, Yoga or TRX, we have a program for you that will leave you feeling rejuvenated, revived and refreshed.
