The Cariboo Memorial Complex's free summer sessions are up and running in Boitanio Park.

The sound of lively music and the sight of workout enthusiasts at a fitness boot camp in Boitanio Park is a sign that Cariboo Memorial Complex free summer sessions are up and running.

Yoga, Zoomba, Boot Camp, Belly Dancing and Cardio are the range of classes offered in the park every Tuesday from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. until August 25.

Marion Bremner, fitness and Zoomba instructor at the Cariboo Memorial Complex, said there are four different instructors, and explained that they’re trying to give everybody a variety and a taste of what’s offered from September to May at Cariboo Memorial Complex.

She said that enjoying the free weekly fitness classes in the park throughout the summer is good continuity for a fitness program.

Having the classes in the evening helps accommodate people who work and attend a noon fitness program.

“Everyone is welcome: the classes are coed. People can be on the grass or up on the stage — whatever motivates them. You don’t have to register or sign up: just show up,” Bremner added.

“There’s been a great turnout — anywhere from 16-40 people. They love seeing the park being used and really enjoy this experience,” she said. “It’s getting great exercise with a good instructor in a beautiful setting outdoors. People can come with a friend and have fun in a group.”
