Our reopening plan follows the current advice of Public Health experts, mandated legislation and takes into consideration best practices from similar facilities and sports organizations in Canada and internationally.

Personal Training is available during Stage 2 & 3 of our Facility Reopening with the following protocols:

  • Training will take place in the Personal Training Studio with only the trainer and client in the space.

What you’ll need:

  • A computer, or other device, that can be linked to Zoom for the live workouts
  • An area in your home or outdoors where you can exercise safely
  • If you have small hand weights great, if not don’t worry – workouts are designed with minimal equipment in mind. A water bottle can also be filled and used instead of weights to help increase the intensity of certain exercises

How to join:

  • If you signed-up for our May, June or July Fitness Challenges, no need to sign-up again for August, we did that for you!
  • Anyone new to our challenges should join by August 1st to get the full month’s benefit of movement. You can still join after August 1st, but you won’t receive the live classes you’ve missed.
  • To sign up, simply fill out the form below! After you sign up, you’ll receive your official Welcome to the Challenge package, with the fitness calendar and workouts, via email on July 31st. Make sure to add to your contact list so you don’t miss it!
