Surrey, BC – Starting July 6, the City of Surrey is providing residents with more options to stay fit this summer with outdoor fitness classes and outdoor built-in fitness equipment re-opening. Classes will take place at four locations across the city and include lower intensity classes like yoga, Zumba and Pilates and higher intensity classes like bootcamp, body sculpt, cardio combo and cardio kickboxing.

“We know that many residents are eager to return to a fitness regimen in order to stay healthy and active,” said Mayor Doug McCallum.  “As recommended by the Provincial Health Officer, the safest place to exercise is outdoors, and we are proud to offer Surrey residents a variety of safe options for staying fit and active this summer.”

All classes will take place outdoors, will run rain or shine and follow strict health protocols to ensure the safety of patrons and staff. Additionally, outdoor fitness equipment located at parks across the city is now open for everyone’s use.

For everyone’s safety, each class will have a maximum of 15 participants with their own marked area to ensure proper physical distancing. Additionally, each location has washroom access nearby to allow for hand washing. Patrons will answer health screening questions prior to participating. For added safety, people are asked to bring their own equipment if necessary (i.e. yoga mat, towel), plus water.

Registration for outdoor fitness classes opens one week prior and all patrons must pre-register starting June 28 at 9 p.m. either online at surrey.ca/drop-in or by phone at 604-501-5100.  Regular drop-in rates will apply, or residents may purchase a 5, 10 or 20 swipe pass for even better value.
