Complex offers a variety for fitness needs

The Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex has everything under one roof to meet your fitness goals all at one low membership price.

The Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex has everything under one roof to meet your fitness goals all at one low membership price. All members are given unlimited access to the pool, fitness centre, drop-in aquafit and dryland programs and even public skating.

“A membership here gives you pretty much access to everything,” said Beth Holden, CMRC Marketing and Events Co-ordinator.

The CMRC features an incredible 11 options for fitness classes including seven dryland and four aquatic which run weekly or bi-weekly. Dryland classes include Gentle Fit, TRX, Toned TRX, Balance Agility, Yogalates, Cardio Class and Boot Camp. Aquafit classes inclde Lunch Fit, Afternoon Aquafit, Evening Aquafit, and Aqua Zumba.

“The Boot Camp and Aqua Zumba are brand new this year and the Toned TRX class was introduced last year,” said Holden.

Another new addition is the Eating Habits Busting program. This is an enhanced membership that was recently introduced and has already seen many clients achieve success.

“This is a 12-step, 12-month program where people learn how to change their lifestyle by adjusting their diet and exercise program. There are three motivational lectures throughout the year and we provide monthly tips and advice by e-mail,” said Holden. “We have seen some phenomenal results from many of the participants.”

There are a number of testimonials of participants in the program that have reported drastically improved health through weight loss, as well as reducing blood sugar levels and medications.

The fitness centre has added new equipment including a new Espresso Interactive Upright Exercise Bike which includes a LCD Screen and can take riders on any of 30 virtual courses.

Monthly memberships are available as well as their popular punch cards. Their 10 punch passes are ideal for those who can’t commit to the gym full time. Their annual pre-Christmas sale offers punch cards at 25 per cent off from Dec. 10-24.

The CMRC will have a referendum on Nov. 15, the same day of the local mayoral election, on what the fate of the pool will be. Voters choose either option A, which is to build a new tank for the existing pool, or option B, to build a new second pool.

There are five Toonie Skates being offered with the first on Saturday, Sept. 26. That same day the pool will be offering its  first of five Iceberg Fun Days.
