Teen Fitness

To our valued Teen Fitness Program participants,

We have made the difficult but important decision to not offer our free Teen Fitness program this summer.

We have been offering this program for the past 10 years, and it’s something we are really proud to be able to do. Teens across the country can typically access our Clubs, free of charge, for the months of July and August. It’s a great way to give back in our communities and to encourage healthy, active lifestyles at a young age.

The decision was therefore not made lightly, but was made for two key reasons:

  • Firstly, because we need to restrict the capacity and the number of total workout hours in each Club, we will not be able to intake the additional volume of teens booking in workouts. We typically welcome over 40,000 teens to our Clubs each summer, and that additional volume is not feasible under the current reopening protocols.
  • Secondly, we need to ensure we stay very focused on reopening Safe Clubs across the country when the time is right in each province. We know this will entail a lot of effort to execute and that tweaks will need to be made to our processes and protocols regularly. Having to also execute the Teen Fitness Program would be something that could take away from our Safe Club focus.

We have every intention of bringing this program back in 2021. For this year, we will encourage teens to access our online content via the website and our social media channels.

We thank you for your understanding, positivity and support.

Frequently Asked Questions
