Get active outdoors with the return of group fitness classes
20 May 2021
Registration for outdoor group fitness classes is under way, providing opportunities once again for the public to stay active and connected while enjoying our natural settings.
For those eager to get back into their fitness routine, strengthen their body or improve mental wellness, a wide range of options will again be offered through community centres across the city. Classes start on Tuesday, May 25 and range from Ease into Fitness, Dance Fit, Total Body Conditioning, Cycle Fit, Stroller Fit, Yoga and more. Browse and register for all classes at www.richmond.ca/register.
As part of the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge, a number of free outdoor and virtual fitness activities will be offered throughout the month of June. ParticipACTION’s Community Better Challenge is a nationwide initiative that encourages communities to sit less and move more. To learn more about the challenge, visit www.richmond.ca/participaction.
In keeping with health protocols, pre-registration for all fitness classes is mandatory and increased safety measures will be in place. Fitness classes will be held outdoors with limited capacities. Participants must be physically distant and must not share water bottles, towels, mats or other items.
