The wait is over — aquafit classes will return the Terrace & District Aquatic Centre this month.
Residents looking for a low-impact but strenuous workout to keep fit can attend three free classes April 5, April 7 and April 8 from9:15 to 10 a.m. These classes will also be used to train more aquafit instructors.
Regularly scheduled morning classes are set at the pool for three days a week starting April 29.
It’s been almost two years since aquafit lessons were held at the Terrace pool after it closed for renovations. Since the pool reopened five months ago, swimming lessons for kids and adult open lane times have resumed, but aquafit classes were missing from the roster because of difficulties finding a trained instructor.
To get the classes back up and running, the city held aquafit instructor training classes with the Canadian Aquafitness Leaders Alliance Inc. on March 8.
The classes will be held from 9:15-10 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday beginning at the end of the month.
Before the pool’s renovations, there were roughly 10 aquafit classes per week with evening classes available for people after work hours. Though there aren’t as many classes available at varying times throughout the day, the city’s communication spokesperson Karisa Petho says other scheduled classes will be announced in May.
