Fitness, exercise room further transforms former elementary school

Panorama Recreation’s satellite gym is officially open.

Where an open space used to be, a glassed-in area now holds weights, treadmills and various other exercise options at Greenglade community centre.

“We’re reaching out to a wider audience, because it’s a little bit less intimidating than the big gym,” said Adrianne Gadd, acting fitness, weights and rehabilitation co-ordinator.

The centre offers a multitude of other recreation opportunities. Aside from the variety of fitness classes available, programs range from learning Italian or pottery to clogging classes.

“We’re always looking for new ideas,” Gadd said.
