Temporary closure – November 2020
The long-awaited press conference regarding the possible reopening of fitness centers finally took place today, October 26 at 5:00 p.m. The instructions are clear as to the centers located in the red zone: the training centers must remain closed until November 23, unless otherwise indicated by the government. We are obviously disappointed, but understand that additional efforts must be made to limit our contacts as much as possible and reduce the spread of the virus.
We are fully aware of the importance of remaining active and invite you to use all the means that we have put at your disposal to stay committed to your healthy lifestyle habits as much as possible:
- Extensive content on the ULTIME FIT online training and nutrition platform
- Access to online personalized coaching sessions with our kinesiologists and nutritionists
- More than 50 “LIVE” group training classes available on the ULTIME FIT online platform.
Should you have any questions regarding your subscription, we invite you to consult the FAQ section of the COVID-19 Measures page where you can find all the answers.
We look forward to seeing you soon in our facilities!

Understanding COVID-19 with DR. Richard Béliveau
Biochemistry and scientific research have never been more talked about than since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that’s a good thing! Since March, Dr. Richard Béliveau, Scientific Director of the Chair in Cancer Prevention and Treatment at UQAM, has joined the discussion with his column in the Journal de Montréal. The development of vaccines, the impact of chronic diseases and excess weight, different mortality rates in men and women, the use of convalescent plasma: he has covered a wide range of topics.
Supported by Nautilus Plus since 2008, the Chair in Cancer Prevention and Treatment focuses on the anti-cancer effects of food to prevent and fight against the development of the disease. Thanks to his work, we now have a better understanding of the impact of physical activity and certain foods on cancer prevention. A treatment for brain cancers, developed by the Chair, is currently undergoing clinical trials. Contribute to the Chair in Cancer Prevention and Treatment by donating online.
Face coverings are now mandatory – Details
😷 📣 IMPORTANT NOTICE 😷 📣
In accordance with government guidelines, face coverings will be mandatory*as of Saturday July 18 across the network of Nautilus Plus gym locations.
*DETAILS OF HOW THIS RULE MUST BE APPLIED IN THE GYM
– Face coverings are now mandatory as you enter the gym, when getting around in the club, and wherever the 2-metre physical distancing rule cannot be respected.
– Since Nautilus Plus has complied with the 2-metre distancing rule between fitness equipment and in the group class areas, face coverings can be removed once you are ready to begin your workout.
Example 1 :
I arrive at the gym wearing my face covering. I make my way to the locker room with face covering still on, I exit the locker room and make my way to the fitness equipment area. Once I am ready to start my workout, I can remove my face covering. Once the workout is completed, I put my face covering back on and I make my way to the next fitness equipment/area.
Example 2 :
I enter the group class area wearing my face covering and I can remove it once I have taken my place and the class is ready to start.
Example 3 :
While wearing my face covering, I make my way to the weight training equipment. Once I’ve made sure that the 2-metre distancing rule can be respected…I remove my face covering. When the exercise is complete and I am ready to move to the next training area, I put my face covering back on.
As implemented by government authorities, any member refusing to wear the proper face covering upon entering the gym will be denied entry. Thank you for your complete cooperation.
Reopening – Preventive Measures
|Hello Dear Members!
It is official; the long-awaited announcement was made on Wednesday, June 17. It is therefore with great happiness and enthusiasm that we confirm our network will officially reopen on Monday, June 22!
Our teams are ready to welcome you and ensure your experience is safe and simple.
Consequently, to ensure a pleasant and safe training experience for everyone, we invite you to read and respect the following instructions:
PRESENT YOURSELF AT THE TIME THAT BEST SUITS YOU!
The occupancy capacity of the centers will be revised downwards in order to respect the social distancing requirements issued by the Public Health Agency.
From now on, we ask that you scan your entry and exit (point your membership card or telephone at the optical reader) in order to make available, on our website and the mobile application, the occupancy rate, in real time, for each center. This will allow you to plan ahead and arrive when it is best suited for you.
Group classes will be available and our instructors are looking forward to welcoming you back! In order to respect the social distancing requirements, the capacity of the group exercise rooms will be limited. For this reason, and for more information regarding next week’s group class schedule, we invite you to visit our website (the schedules will be available this weekend). Free access will be offered to our classes on a first come, first serve basis.
Online consultation and coaching sessions with our kinesiologists and nutritionists are now available thanks to the new teleconference feature found on the Nautilus Plus customer monitoring software, powered by Hexfit (French only, English will be available soon).
Regarding your membership and the extension terms related to the temporary closure period, we invite you to visit the FAQ section on our website.
Finally! We are looking forward to seeing you back!
The Nautilus Plus team
