Fitness class schedules

Schedule and instructors subject to change without notice.

Welcome to our gradual return to fitness in Clarington. This year, our outdoor summer fitness programs will take place over two six-week sessions. There are a few essential things to know before we get started. During Step 1 of the province's guide to reopening, all fitness classes will be held outdoors. Our facilities, including washrooms and change rooms will remain closed and unavailable for use. Please come dressed and ready for class. In the event of inclement or extreme weather, classes will be cancelled, participants notified, and credits applied where applicable. We encourage participants to dress appropriately for the weather, and bring water and a yoga mat to class. Closed-toe athletic shoes are mandatory for all classes except yoga.

  • COVID-19 Screening: If you have any COVID-19 symptoms or are concerned you may have been recently exposed, we ask that you stay home and contact the Durham Region Health Department for more information on how to proceed and how to get tested. When you arrive at class, you will be required to go through a screening process. Please keep your mask on, and maintain a physical distance as the instructor makes their way to you.
  • Masks: You will be required to wear a mask during the screening process and as you enter and exit class. You do not need to wear a mask while you exercise.
  • Physical distancing: Strict physical distancing of at least three metres between participants will be enforced at all times during class. Please be mindful of others as you exercise.
  • Equipment: Due to public health recommendations and safety guidelines, we cannot use our fitness equipment. If you wish to bring a pair of dumbbells or resistance band to class, you are welcome to do so, but this is not required.

If you have any questions about our outdoor summer programming, please contact us at
