Our Premier, Jason Kenney, spoke January 7 about the extension to the health restrictions that we hoped would end on January 13th. Due to the high numbers of hospitalizations and ICU patients, we won’t be able to reopen to offer recreational and fitness opportunities to the region’s residents. We are disappointed, but understand that these measures are in place to protect all of us from the effects of both the virus and an overwhelmed health care system.
As we do, we try to find ways to keep our community active – and in times like this, we all need a little activity and distraction.
We’re moving programs online in the interim until we can reopen and see you all again. We hope you will #shoplocal and join us if you can!
What will you be offering online?
We had a great response to our first foray into Zoom classes and lots of interest in having our innovative and dynamic TLC instructors continue teaching their classes, albeit in a slightly different manner.
Drop-in classes – one price, access to all drop-in classes! Attend one or many! And now, you can request your class recording if you missed the scheduled time. Check out our drop-in schedule below!
Registered programs – due to scheduling with other classes, space and cleaning demands, we will be offering a limited number of the previously planned classes from our winter/spring 2021 program guide. We hope you will be able to find a class that is right for you to get moving and the blood pumping. Check out our registered class schedule below!
How can I sign up?
Registration is open NOW here by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If I already have a membership, do I still have to pay?
The day we closed all membership accounts were paused and January payments were not processed. When we re-open, members will receive the days they did not receive in December before any further payments are processed. Due to our computer system, we are unable to "unpause" certain accounts and not others, so if you’d like to participate in these online classes, a separate registration and fee will be required.
What equipment is required?
We are working on a plan to loan equipment to class participants based on the instructor’s class plans. Stay tuned while we finalize this process. For classes starting Monday, instructors will plan to use minimal or no equipment for their programs.
Do I have to turn on my video/webcam to participate?
The instructors would love to see you, but you don’t have to turn on your webcam on if you don’t want to! Sharing your video allows them to check that participants understand instructions and are doing the correct movements without needing further info or modifications, but it is totally up to you!
What if I have no idea what to do?
We are happy to walk you through the steps required to participate! All you need is a device that is connected to the Internet and we can get you set up from there.
We can’t wait to “see” you. Although not quite the start to the year that we had hoped, we are so happy to still be able to offer our programs to our members and residents of this amazing community. We can do this!
