New Year's Resolutions

Dec 31, 2015

Time to start anew! Dust off your runners, consolidate your reading lists, or prepare yourself for what other resolutions you may have for 2016; regardless, here are a few suggestions to help achieve your goals and be the best you possible!

Fitness

Yoga

It seems at one point on any given day, there's a yoga class running at one of our recreation centres. It's not too far from the truth as we have a ton of different yoga classes from beginners classes to stretch only classes, all the way to advanced yoga. Head to our Activity Search to find the next yoga class at the closest facility. 

Gym

If you're looking to pump iron or hit a treadmill, head over to Sungod Recreation Centre, Ladner Leisure Centre, and Winskill Aquatic and Fitness Centre. Our weight rooms have a variety of equipment to help you meet your fitness goals for 2016! And let's not forget that they're staffed with personal trainers, ready to be booked! 

LeBarre ®

A workout like no other! Combining balance, agility, resistance, and Lebert ® Equalizer Bars, get into these challenging full body workout classes. No previous dance experience or pink tights required! 

Aquafit

Undoubtedly one of the most popular ways that Delta residents like to maintain their fitness, Aquafit classes are great for people of all ages with different classes to meet your needs. These classes use the water for buoyancy and resistance, allowing less frequently used muscles in your body the opportunity to work out improving overall muscle tone. Look at the schedules online to find the perfect class for you!

Adult Splash N' Dash & Kids of Steel

This might be something from your last year's list of resolutions, but let us help take it off your bucket list. The event takes place on April 23rd, with registration opening January 18. Head to Delta.ca/Triathlon for more information and to register.  

Preschoolers and Infants

Of course, if you're looking for a fun way to get fit while spending time with the little one, try out Mommy and Me Aquafit, a low impact class that utilizes your body weight as resistance. This class runs every Wednesday morning at 11:45 am at Sungod Recreation Centre. 

If you're just looking to play in the water, Parent & Tot Playtime runs from 10:30 - 11:30 am on Mondays at Ladner Leisure Centre and Tuesdays at Sungod Recreation Centre at the same time. 

Another great bonding moment for Preschoolers comes on Tuesdays from 12 - 3 pm during Drive-In Movie Afternoon. Partake in fun activities that are followed up by a family-fun flick!

For even more programs and activities, check out the Leisure Guide or our Activity Search.


Seniors

It's never too late to develop a new passion! McKee Art Class instructors like to say that "everyone can paint!" Why not find out for yourself? Sign up for acrylic art on Tuesdays, mixed media on Fridays, or watercolour on Mondays and unleash your potential Picasso.

Perhaps you've got a new camera for Christmas? In which case, Kennedy's Photo Interest Group meets every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 10:10 am.  

If the performing arts have your eye, throw on your dancing shoes — Beginners Ballroom Dancing starts up on Saturday mornings at 11 am, taught by Canadian National Champions.

Contact the Seniors Recreation Centre directly for further information or course registration
