YKRC has been a fixture in the community of Yellowknife since 1981.

With 4 international sizes squash courts, 2 studio spaces, a spin studio, 2 fully-equipped weight rooms, cardio room and ample event space, YKRC brings a level of luxury to the Yellowknife gym scene that no others can.

Today's Schedule

Spin, Fitness and Yoga

We are proud to be the only fitness club in the City of Yellowknife that offers a diverse fitness, yoga & spin schedule of 40 classes per week. With morning, lunch, and evening classes we've tailored our class schedule to work for everyone! Plus, most of our instructors are AFLCA Certified which ensures you're getting the best fitness possible. Full Access memberships also include specialty classes such as Barre, Yoga, Spin (indoor cycling), and Rebounding at no extra cost!


Squash is a huge part of what the Racquet Club is. We have four international size courts with one court having a full glass back for tournament viewing. We host a number of tournaments and squash activities during the year that will keep you busy and fit throughout the whole year!

If you've never played it, you need to get on court and give it a try! Squash is considered one of the most healthy sports in the world, and when you play, you are going to get a full-body and cardio workout. Think HIIT with a racquet and ball. In 45 minutes, expect to burn at least 500 calories or more! If you'd like an introduction or would just like to know about our squash events, contact our Squash Pro, Jeff at jeff@ykracquetclub.com.


YKRC is and always will be Yellowknife's premier fitness facility, but what most Yellowknifers don't know is that we offer one of the best social scenes in town. With just over 22,000 square feet of event space, fitness space, and squash courts we are able to offer a community atmosphere like no other. Join us for Friday Night Squash Drop-In, a specialty fitness class, or a beverage in the lounge!
