Group Fitness Classes
November 19 Update
On November 19, Dr. Bonnie Henry provided an update regarding the November 10 Public Health Order that cancelled all indoor group fitness for two weeks. The newest update has extended the cancellation of all high intensity, indoor group fitness until December 7 at minimum. At the time of this update, Dr. Bonnie Henry has identified that spin classes, hot yoga and high intensity interval training (HIIT) are among the prohibited activities. Our next steps, once we receive updated guidelines from the health authorities, is to evaluate our other indoor group fitness classes (like aquafit, yoga and indoor sports) and to submit new safety plans for approval with the hope of introducing these activities back to the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre. Read our full update here.
All programs and services offered by the City are closely monitored on an ongoing basis to ensure the necessary protocols are in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We review all Public Health Orders upon release and seek clarification on specific recommendations from the provincial public health office and our regional public health authority when needed. This is done in collaboration with the provincial Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) and neighbouring municipalities.
The most up to date listing of available programs and activities is available on our registration page. You will be contacted via email should any of your registered activities or bookings be affected and receive a refund. Please expect temporary delays at our registration email and phone line (604-467-7422) while we work through the details of these cancellations.
