Fitness Classes

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday the fitness class meets at 11:00 am to exercise to music.  Instructor Ardella Schutt with CCAC and Family Physio creates a positive experience for all members of her class.  She provides a range of low impact therapeutic exercise to help build and maintain individual body strength, balance and flexibility. Ardella welcomes everyone to the group with her good nature, happy and creative spirit.  Her work experience in nursing, recreation and activation has inspired her to keep learning and growing personally.  Ardella makes exercise fun with a sense of humour that has the members laughing.  Come out, join in and see how your body and spirit improves.  This is an Heart-Wise Fitness Program recognized by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
