Not sure if Zumba is the way to go? Should it be Pilates or maybe stationary cycles?

Langley City residents can check out the fitness options at the new Timms Community Centre at an open house April 9.

Council and staff decided to host an open house to allow people who could not attend the official opening in February to try out the facility, some programs and activities for free.

The list of activities people can try includes free classes and activities including yoga-Pilates, badminton, Zumba, volleyball, spinning (stationary cycles) and bridge, as well as live entertainment and more.

The community centre will also have information on the many programs on offer. Kids can try preschool dance, soccer, and art activities during the open house.

“Since the new Timms Centre opened at the end of February, already it is a cultural and sporting hub in our community,” said Mayor Ted Schaffer. “The open house is another great opportunity to try a new class or tour the facility.”

Timms has a gymnasium, fitness track, weight room, spin room, games room and multiple multipurpose rooms. People can try out the amenities, including the Technogym cardio equipment which allows people to attach their smartphones to personalize their workouts.

The City’s accredited fitness staff will be on hand to provide training tips and guidance on how to properly use the equipment.

The City’s Youth Committee has the barbecue going that day as of 11 a.m. The open house runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
