The Fitness Pulse

Keeping your finger on the pulse of
what's happening in Saanich Fitness

Fitness Classes Paused

Saanich continues to follow the direction laid out by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO). This means that all Saanich Weight Rooms are closed and Saanich Fitness Classes (excluding Waterfit) are on pause until the PHO says that they can re-open (potentially January 19th). In the meantime, see below for information on Waterfit classes happening at Saanich Recreation Centres. Another alternative to Weight Rooms and Fitness Classes to still get your exercise is to visit one of Saanich's many wonderful parks. Go for a walk, a jog, or a run and enjoy the beautiful scenery and the fresh air!
