Together we inspire healthy active living.
Many pieces come together to contribute to the success of the Canada Games Centre; from our members, to programs and services, to continuous facility improvements, to our community partnerships. These are all made possible because of a dedicated staff team and our volunteer Board of Directors providing guidance. This section of our website highlights the familiar staff faces you see around the facility, but perhaps haven’t had the opportunity yet to get to know.
Meet CGC’s Fitness & Wellness Coordinator Amber! Amber has been working at the Canada Games Centre for just over 7 years. One of her favourite things about working here is the people—her co-workers and CGC members and guests. When not teaching multiple classes a week in the Field House and on the pool deck, she’s busy in the Fitness Centre or collaborating on new programming. Amber’s passionate about offering the community a safe space to meet and be active together. Outside of work, she loves spending time outdoors and going hiking.
She is a true team player who makes us all stronger.
“Amber has a wealth of knowledge in fitness, wellness, and motivation to succeed. She started her staff journey at the CGC leading drop-in classes and fitness programs, but quickly moved into the role of Fitness Programmer, followed by Fitness & Wellness Coordinator. Her skillset is diverse, her commitment to our members is unwavering, and her ability to get things done is unparalleled. We are proud to have Amber as a leader among the CGC staff. She is a true team player who makes us all stronger.” ~ Carla Alderson, Manager, Service Operations
