Richmondites will be able to work out at three city fitness centres starting Monday.
Seventy-five-minute sessions can be booked at South Arm and Thompson community centres and at the Minoru Centre for Active Living – registration starts Wednesday morning (Aug. 12) at 10 a.m. for next week, but, after that, registration will begin every Monday for the following week.
There will be no drop-in sessions.
All city facilities closed in March due to the pandemic, but playgrounds and outdoor courts were brought back online in June.
Those registered for a fitness-centre session need to arrive five minutes in advance and should only bring essentials like wallet, keys, phone, towel and water bottle – lockers are available and no bags are allowed in the fitness centre area.
Those working out need to wipe down equipment before and after – disinfectant will be provided.
Registrations can also be done by calling the Registration Call Centre at 604-276-4300. Recreation Access Card holders and recreation fee subsidy users must call the Registration Call Centre to book an exercise session.
