COVID Restrictions Update- April 15, 2021

On April 6, Premier Kenney announced new health measures are in place to protect the health system and reduce the rising spread of COVID-19. Alberta is moving back to Step 1 effective April 7: indoor fitness facilities can now only open for by-appointment one-on-one training or household-based training. This applies to working with a certified personal trainer in the fitness centre or aquatic swim instructor in the pool. Individual exercising or swimming without a trainer is not permitted.

All memberships remain frozen.

Keep your health and wellness a priority by taking advantage of our in-person and virtual programming options available for MacEwan students, members, pass holders and the public.

Other available in-person programming

Personal Training* - One-on-one or household training to a maximum of three people. New clients must fill out our consultation form to connect you with the best trainer to help you meet your goals. 

Workout of the Day (WOD)* starting April 9. Reserve your 30-minute spot for an in-person, one-on-one coached workout with one of our highly certified trainers. The workout and the trainer will change each day to showcase our variety of trainers and workout styles. WODs are appropriate for all fitness levels and are first-come, first-served. Schedules will be released weekly and will open for reservations on the Friday before. Reservations are live and will close every day at 7 a.m. for that day. 

Registered Private Swim Lessons* - One-on-one or household training to a maximum of five people. Private lessons are first-come, first-served and are free for MacEwan students. Sport and Wellness members and the public can purchase Registered Private Lessons. Choose a 30-minute lesson from our certified instructors focused on one of the following areas:

  • Fitness Training - get coached through a heart-pumping workout that’s easy on the joints. 
  • Stroke Correction/Development - stroke correction and development to help refine and improve your stroke.
  • Learn To’s - customized to any aquatic skill, whether that is swimming, a new stroke or a lifesaving skill.

The relationship between the people getting trained and the staff who interact with them is something I’ve never experienced in other centres. It feels as if everyone is rooting for you to succeed.
