Summer is winding down and the desire to exercise in the milder temperatures is rising. As our summer sports and activities slowly get replaced by more indoor pursuits (dealing with harvest, preparing for fall and winter), we may find this an excellent time to visit the local fitness centre at the Crawford Bay School. The Fitness Place has a wide range of stationary/free weight equipment, a good section of cardiovascular machines (elliptical, two treadmills, bikes, rower), and plenty of room for visitors. It is open (currently) on Mon/Weds/Fri from 6:30 am to 10:30 am, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8:30 am to 10:30 pm and on Mon-Thurs evenings from 6-8 pm. Please drop in and give it a try! Friendly volunteers are always on hand to answer questions and introduce you to the gym. A monthly pass costs $30 (watch for our three for the price of two special in November!) and a drop in day rate is only $5. (Your first visit is always free.)

The Crawford Bay Fitness Place is a wonderful facility for getting in shape and keeping in shape. However, due to a present lack of volunteers, we have had to cut Tuesday and Thursday morning shifts for September, and possibly longer.

Right now we are looking for two volunteers each willing to give two hours of their time once a week.  In exchange, the volunteer gets free membership.
