The wait is over; the Winter 2020 Program Guide is ready to share, and we could not be more excited! Make next year your year and a healthy one. Choose from your favourite CGC programs and a few new ones that are sure to keep you inspired to move—no matter what Jack Frost has in store for us. Here are a few highlights from our programming team:

1-Day Workshops

  • Are you interested in a program, but unsure if you’ll like it? Our 1-Day workshops are the perfect solution! Almost all our winter Fitness programs have a 1-Day Workshop offered on the same day of the week and time as the full program, so you’ll not only know if it’s a workout you like, but one that fits your schedule too. We also have workshops for Aquatics and Recreation programs. See page 8 in the Winter 2020 Program Guide for the list of 1-Day Workshops being offered. Workshops are free for annual members and $8 (plus tax) for non-members. Spaces are limited so be sure to register early.
