Service Changes (in-person programs)

Dec 16, 2020 update
NEW –  Group Fitness Classes to resume!
The new Public Health Guidelines surrounding group fitness classes have just been released.  Only low-Impact group classes will be allowed under these guidelines.   Since many of our in-person group exercise classes offer high-intensity options,  we are making a few necessary adjustments to the Fitness Schedule and will begin to offer classes which fall within these guidelines starting the week of Dec 21.  Click for Schedule.
