A new place to get fit

February 26, 2011, was a busy day at the Creston & District Community Complex (CDCC). Though the new CDCC itself has been open since June of 2010, the fitness centre in the complex held its grand opening on February 26. An open house throughout the afternoon attracted droves of people to see the centre's shiny treadmills, weights, elliptical machines and numerous other apparatuses. There were also demonstrations and free classes.

Creston PhysioWorks & More—formerly PhysioWorks—held its grand reopening that day as well. Owned by Candace and Mike Foy, the physiotherapy business has relocated to the CDCC and is adjacent to the fitness centre.

The fitness centre offers services catering to all fitness interests and goals. There are personal trainers for individuals, partners and groups. Classes range from line dancing to spinning. For those who like to sweat alone, the cardio equipment includes standards such as bikes, as well as an Arc Trainer, rowing machines and a Hand Krank cycle. Those looking to tone up can hit the free weights or try the functional trainer. Post-workout, head down to the pool or relax in the steam room—use of both the aquatic and fitness facilities is included with a day pass.
