About Our Aquatics/Fitness Classes
With Aquafit, you’ll have the added benefits of the water’s resistance and extra support for your muscles and joints while working out. Whether you are just starting out or looking to add some variety to your exercise routine, we have a class for you. All of our Aquafit classes are included in your membership or day pass and are listed on our Aquatics and Fitness schedules online (printed copies of the schedules are also available at the Customer Service Desk).
Group Fitness Classes
All drop-in classes are free to members or covered by your day pass fees. We encourage participants to arrive early for classes (especially yoga classes). New participants are encouraged to arrive early to meet our instructor, request modifications as needed and get set up with the proper equipment.
Spin, Tai Chi & Yoga
Cards for Tai Chi, Spin & Yoga classes are available 15 minutes prior to class start time at the Fitness Centre Desk.
Aqua-Step & Hydrorider
Cards for Aqua-Step & Hydrorider classes are available 30 minutes prior to class start time at the Customer Service Desk.
Youth ages 12 years of age or older may attend group fitness classes. We offer Child Minding services for ages 2 months to 12 years. Please note children 7 & under may not use the pool on their own and must stay within arm’s reach of a parent or guardian (18+ yrs) throughout the facility.
We try our best not to cancel classes; however if we need to, you will find the information on our website (in a red alert bar at the top of the screen and on the individual schedule pages), on Facebook, on Twitter, near the entrance doors, and on the notice boards within the Centre at least one hour in advance.
Please note: On holidays, we offer a reduced number of classes and will post these changes in advance on our website and fitness notice boards within the facility.
