Fitness Classes

We offer a variety of group classes, all in a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere that both challenges you and helps you to enjoy physical activity.  We welcome participants of a variety of abilities, and hope that you will join for the whole term of each class. Participants are able to join within the first three weeks of classes and their pass will be prorated. Please note that registration closes after the third week of classes. Drop-ins and punch pass users are welcome into classes on a first come first served basis, however registered participants are guaranteed a spot and a bike in the fitness classes.
