Sportsplex to offer some outdoor classes in addition to online offerings

The City of Campbell River is taking fitness opportunities outdoors. The City’s recreation department will be offering some fitness classes outside, with limited access and new safety measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, according to a press release.

“In line with the province’s restart plan, and as part of gradually, carefully re-opening facilities and resuming services where it’s safe to do so, we’re looking forward to seeing people in person again for fitness classes,” said Mary Fast, City of Campbell River fitness supervisor.
