Events & Courses will be posted below as they become available. If a course you want is not posted below that means dates and/or locations have not been confirmed for that course yet. Please check again at a later date.
As the COVID-19 virus continues to keep our usual course and event venues closed, we are shifting our course content to online platforms. Our hope is to offer a blended - i.e. some online, some in person - format as soon as venues are open for bookings again. In the mean time, we will continue with Zoom as our delivery platform. Owing to space & equipment needs, Aqua and Indoor Cycling will not be offered online. These courses will resume when in-person courses are allowed to resume.
We are offering online programs via Zoom. If you are not familiar with Zoom please visit the Zoom YouTube channel for tutorials. Zoom calls are scheduled to begin 15 minutes before the official start time of the event.
We take payments via cheque or PayPal only. If you are unfamiliar with how to use PayPal you can see their tutorials on the PayPal YouTube channel.
If a course you want is full please add yourself to the wait list (the wait list option will be visible when you try to register). Many times people de-register before the course begins allowing wait listed students to get in. If a course has a significant wait list we will also look at putting on an additional offering of that course.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unusual time,

If you wish to complete the Exercise Theory Course via self-directed distance education (i.e. video access you can watch any time, instead of a live Zoom call with us) please purchase the course through the Manitoba Fitness Council at this link https://manitobafitnesscouncil.ca/product/exercise-theory-distance-education-package/. To complete this course you must write and pass the national Exercise Theory exam. MFC is our partner organization in the NFLA so the content is the same and we all use the same national exam. You can arrange your exam by emailing email@example.com. Please note a $30 exam fee will apply.
