An upcoming fitness program at the Leduc Recreation Centre is a great way to start the New Year with a sampling of many offerings.

The “Winter Teaser” program is a sampling of several fitness programs available at LRC all within a two-hour period Saturday morning, January 16.

City of Leduc manager of recreation services LeeAnn Weller said this is a good chance for guests to see a lot of fitness in a little bit of time. “We’ve done some things like this in the past,” said Weller by phone Jan. 11. She said January is a time when LRC can see a lot of new participants and it’s a good time to try something like the teaser. There will also be some information tables set up from 12 noon to 1 p.m. and draw prizes.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the fieldhouse and includes different classes run every 15 minutes followed by a 40-minute aquafit class at 1 p.m.

The winter teaser will include bootcamp with Andrea, Barre with Janelle, Drumfit with Shaelyn, Zumba with Chelsea, Tabatta with Rod and Yoga with Lorena. Weller said participants can join any or all of the classes they’re interested in.

She noted it’s a great opportunity for participants to try activities they’ve heard of and want to learn more about.

Current LRC members can try winter teaser for free; non-member adults must buy a day-pass for $8.50. A full list of times is available on the City of Leduc website, www.leduc.ca, and click the Leduc Recreation Center link.

Weller said the winter teaser is geared towards virtually any participant. “It really is for anybody,” she said. “The more the merrier.”
