These include Core Conditioning, Dance and Tone, High Intensity Interval Training, Circuit classes, Yoga and more. Personal training and specialty programs such as Zumba, Barre, TRX Suspension Training and Queenax Functional Training classes are also available.
With the Seniors Centre located within the same facility, the Fitness Centre has equipment and specialized classes targeting those aiming to keep active, mobile and healthy in their senior years. Classes such as Joint Moves, Stay Steady and Exercise for People with Parkinson’s are in place to meet the diverse needs of the community.
Access to the Minoru Centre for Active Living Fitness Centre will be available on a drop-in basis as well as with monthly memberships and 10-Visit Cards that that make great holiday gifts.
