Accessible Spin Classes

An exciting partnership with Blind Sports Nova Scotia

March 26, 2018


Our Spring Drop-in Fitness schedule now includes spin classes accessible for members and guests with vision loss. Through a partnership with Blind Sports Nova Scotia, CGC Fitness Instructors received basic sighted guide and etiquette training that teaches them to use verbal cues to describe each exercise and technique. For example, to know how fast your cadence or pedalling should be, instructors will count beats aloud. They will also help you get familiar with the spin bike, getting on and off the bike safely and how to adjust the tension.

Join CGC Fitness Instructors for one of the following accessible classes on our Drop-In Fitness schedule:

  • Tuesdays — Spin @ 5:30pm with D.W.
  • Thursdays — Spin Gold @ 10:15am with Melissa
  • Fridays — Spin @ 5:30pm with Anne
  • Saturdays — Spin @ 9am D.W.

Like all of our Drop-in Fitness Classes, these are included in your membership or day pass rate.

For questions about the fitness schedule or the Centre, please contact Amber Allan, Fitness Programmer at allana@canadagamescentre.ca or 902.490.3893.

Or reach out to Jennie Bovard, Tandem Bike Club Coordinator & Communications Director, with any questions or further information by visiting the Blind Sports Nova Scotia website.
