Exercise Programs

Beginning in November we will resume in-person programming with the launch of our new Everyday Fitness group exercise program. Offered in monthly sessions (two or three times per week), these 60-minute classes promote enhanced physical well-being and introduce core concepts to help participants incorporate more physical activity into their daily lives.

Soon, we will also begin offering evidence-informed classes for targeted populations with specific physical activity goals. The condition-specific classes will bring together students in our professional rehabilitation master’s programs with community members looking to enhance their health and well-being through physical activity. Classes may be offered in areas such as knee osteoarthritis, post-surgical knee and hip rehabilitation, exercise for osteoporosis and strengthening for seniors.

Participation in all CCAA classes includes a functional fitness assessment for new participants and ongoing monitoring and evaluation that will support research projects linked to physical activity.

Getting Started - Information for Participants

Our bodies change over time. The ways we kept fit earlier in life become less relevant as we age. This is a good thing, but it doesn’t mean we’ll always know where to start. That’s why we emphasize a focus on fitness discovery for our members. Learn more.
