Are you ready for a refreshing change? Try Aquafit… physical conditioning obtained by using water as resistance. Muscles will be toned and strengthened without the aches and pains sometimes experienced after exercising on dry land. Swimming skills are not necessary, but participants should feel comfortable in water and be prepared to get wet including their hair.

UFIT AQUA

The CARI Complex and UFIT Inc. have joined forces to offer UFIT AQUA. Based on UFIT’s philosophy of freedom and acceptance, twinned with the benefits of using water as resistance; at the surface it may look like any other aqua fitness class. But it isn’t. You’ll get an amazing workout and leave feeling energized, refreshed and motivated. No swimming skills necessary – participants can enjoy the class from the leisure pool being anchored on the floor or suspended in deep water using an aqua fitness belt. Stop by for a splashing good time!

Aqua Jogging

A deep water class for people that want to run in the water! You do a combination of jogging/walking in the water to stay at your target heart rate. Great for people that don’t want to worry about coordination and it offers a great core workout.

Sunset Fitness

This is a variety class to get you active during the evenings! This class focuses on a holistic approach of giving your mind, body & spirit a workout!

Sunrise Fitness

This is a variety class to get you moving bright and early! Jump in the pool and get your entire body moving in a variety of ways to start your day off well!

Aqua Zumba®

Known as the Zumba® “pool party,” the Aqua Zumba program gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, the Aqua Zumba class blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.

About the CARI Complex

Welcome to the CARI Complex

The CARI Complex is a multiuse recreational facility established in 2004, through the collaboration of the City of Charlottetown, Town of Stratford and University of Prince Edward Island, to satisfy the Greater Charlottetown Area’s need for additional ice surfaces, an updated pool, and a dedicated facility for the Seniors Active Living Centre. This 160,000 plus square foot facility is conveniently located on the campus of UPEI and has become a premiere hosting venue of World, National and Provincial tournaments, with the distinction of being the most active recreational facility on Prince Edward Island.

The CARI Complex features one of the most functional recreational setups in Atlantic Canada, with its two official NHL sized ice pads – MacLauchlan Arena, a 25-meter 8 lane competition pool, leisure and toddler pool, hot tub, accessible change rooms, waterslide and diving boards.

Placeholder

The complex has 3 community rooms including a board room and a fully licensed hospitality suite. The complex houses five private tenants, including the renowned Andrews Hockey Growth Program, the Seniors Active Living Centre, Frizzell’s Skate Sharpening, the University of Prince Edward Island’s Fitness Centre and a Subway restaurant.

The CARI Complex is home to numerous community-based groups that offer programming and sporting opportunities in the health & wellness sector. At present, our aquatics facility is home to the Charlottetown Bluephin Aquatic Club; Synchro PEI, UPEI Varsity Swim Team and the Charlottetown Adult & Master’s Swim Club. The MacLauchlan Arena is home to the Charlottetown Minor Hockey Association, Sherwood-Parkdale Rural Minor Hockey Association, Charlottetown Ringette Club, UPEI Men’s & Women’s Panther Hockey teams, Charlottetown Islanders Major Midget Team and 11 adult recreational leagues.

Ensuring customer satisfaction is a priority at the CARI Complex. We do so with high quality, innovative recreational opportunities that are reflective of community needs and interests. We believe in creating and sustaining an environment that promotes health and wellness and bring that philosophy to everything we do.

Sincerely,
Sue Fraser
General Manager of the CARI Complex
