Booking appointments at a specific time is a good idea, will everyone get equal and fair chance to use the gym?<br></h3><p>We are looking into securing an online booking system that would allow members to book a specific time slot in advance. <br></p><h3></h3><h3>Q:  Will you be limiting membership to those who already have it (rather than allowing new people to join) given the limited capacity that you will have?<br></h3><p>Yes, membership will be limited to exisiting members. No new members will be granted until we have secured a healthy and workable system.<br></p><p></p></div><div class="ExternalClass0ABD291B638A4DEFB88C056C92BAA309"><p> <br> </p><p>Discover the best kept secret at Vancouver General Hospital!
