phys·i·cal lit·er·a·cy noun : Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.

At the Canada Games Centre, we strive to provide the best programs and services possible to improve physical literacy for all – from the very young to the young at heart.

Pilates once a week is great, but two times is twice the fun! With two different classes, you’ll get the variety you need to avoid overuse injuries, and the frequency to feel a noticeable difference in your body. In this early morning class, you’ll be led through a short yoga-inspired sequence to stretch, wake-up, and warm the body, followed by a fun mix of pilates drills, cool-down, and stretching. On Tuesdays, endurance is the name of the game; expect a faster paced workout to keep your heart rate up, focusing on higher rep counts that have you burning by the end. A variety of standing, seated, and lying postures that move with the music, and using props and weights will challenge you. The exercises slow down a bit on Thursdays as we show you how to incorporate the use of Yoga Tune-Up therapy balls to release fascial adhesions, increase blood flow, and improve pilates technique. Thursdays will help you build strength by pushing through that shaky feeling, focusing on fewer reps and deeper, more integrated muscle recruitment patterns. Come for the burn, stay for the laughter, and let the music take you to new lengths – literally!
