What should I do if the Teen Fitness site does not load?

If it still does not load, please verify you can get to the internet by trying to browse any other website.

Does at least one of the teens parents parent have to be a member? Or, can an adult member “sponsor” a teen and their friends? 

+

The Teen Fitness program is for every Canadian teen—no limitations. Parent/Guardians do not have to be GoodLife Fitness members. Teens need to have their own Parent/Guardian register them online and come in with their Parent/Guardian to the club to sign and complete the registration process.

The teen is a current member; can they place their membership on freeze to participate in this program?  

+

Yes, teens can place their membership on freeze however it is important to note that there are limited hours and club access for teen fitness. If a current member puts their membership on hold to participate in the program, they must abide by these rules for the duration of July and August.

My teen is turning 18 halfway through the program; can they still join?

+

Yes. Teens must be 17 on the date of registration and must be 17 upon the date the program starts (July 4th)

My teen is 11 can they participate?  What about if they turn 12 during the summer? 

+

The starting age for Teen Fitness must be age 12. There are no exceptions to this rule. If your teen is turning 12 during the summer then once they have turned 12 the parent/guardian of the teen can then register their teen online for the program.

Why are hot yoga, tanning, MindDen, Hydro Massage, the sauna/steam, Recovery Room, CRAFT Boxing, squash and the entire pool/whirlpool, tennis and some machines (Not Teen Fitness Friendly) not part of the free teen summer membership?  

+

To ensure the health and safety of our Teen Fitness participants, we have placed some limitations on the amenities that they may access. The purpose of the Teen Fitness program is to help teens learn and develop healthy habits, and the amenities available have been selected to help achieve this goal

After the Teen has completed the mandatory Starter session, are they then able to work out without a Parent being present in the club?  

+

Yes, they can work out without a Parent/Guardian present.
