To all who are fond of fitness, take note — you will soon be able to flex your pecs and tone your abs in Headingley’s new adult fitness centre.

Headingley Seniors’ Services is using a $21,750 grant from the federal government’s New Horizons program to buy exercise equipment. Services chair Louise Hutton said the RM of Headingley is donating the stage in the Headingley Community Centre for use as the fitness centre’s location.
"We’re focusing on strength, balance and overall fitness," Hutton said.

She said she hopes local seniors will use the fitness centre to complement other exercise programs being offered through Headingley Seniors’ Services and the Macdonald-Headingley Recreation District such as hall walking, pickleball and gentle yoga.

"We’re hoping that there’s lots of interest in it," she said.

Equipment is now being selected, and Hutton expects the fitness centre to open in early October. Orientation sessions will be offered.

She added that the equipment will be moved when the stage is needed for events such as the annual Christmas craft sale and school concerts.
