Fitness during COVID

It is important to try and do some movement everyday, we all know this, right? During this challenging time some people have found it difficult to exercise by themselves and need support and encouragement. The BCC is offering classes in a safe environment. Like all other businesses we follow the rules and have everything that is needed for participants to keep safe. Masks do not need to worn during exercise classes. The room will be set up for social distancing for the class. All equipment is sanitized after class.
When you come inside the BCC for classes you need to wear a mask. Hang your coat, change your shoes, washroom break etc. Once you find your spot and the class is about to start, your mask comes off. You will have a chair that you can put a bag under and hold any equipment you need. If you leave your spot to go to the washroom – you need your mask back on! Once the class is over, gather your items, put your mask on and head out for the day. We encourage you to socialize outside after class so that the room can be prepared for anything that may follow.

So many signs and directions…..I know! When classes start coming inside because of the weather, the east end doors (gym) will be open for students. Once everyone is in, it will be locked as we do not want people to wander in. So if you are running late…..you will need to knock or if the BCC is open at 9am you may enter the west end. Whew….hope you are getting all this. WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS, TOGETHER!

This class is great for all fitness levels and combines strength training and aerobics training for a total body workout. The class involves a variety of exercises using dumbbells,  bands and your body’s own resistance to help increase muscular endurance and strength. The quick movement between exercises combined with cardio stations helps to keep your heart rate elevated throughout the workout burning calories the entire time.

Chair Yoga

Always wanted to try yoga, but thinking flexibility is required? This is a myth. Yoga is much more than the poses and being flexible to obtain them. It is very much about breath and mindfulness. Modifications and adjustments to poses are always available. Yoga is amazing for mobility and balance too.
