Fitness

Fitness centres at Delbrook, Harry Jerome and Parkgate are now open. 
The fitness centres at Karen Magnussen and John Braithwaite open Sep 21.

NVRC is excited to repoen our fitness centres for advance registered sessions. You'll find spaces are a little different with safety measures and physical distancing in place, but we are really happy to welcome you back. 

Staff are working hard to provide the opportunity for our community to get back to being active in the fitness centres. NVRC appreciates customers supporting staff by following directions from staff and avoiding the use of equipment marked as out of use.

All visits to attend a fitness centre or fitness class require advance booking. Drop-ins are not currently possible.

Fitness Memberships

NVRC is pleased to introduce an updated 2020 Fitness Membership Program starting September 8. The membership includes fitness centre sessions plus a selection of indoor fitness classes, lane swimming and public swimming and skating planned to start in September and October. 

Existing fitness membership holders who have membership on hold from March, have three main options: 

 

OPTION 1 – Reactivate your membership

Reactivate your fitness membership by emailing us at mymembership@nvrc.ca. Your new 2020 fitness membership will be issued for the period of time it was not available for use, and any time remaining on paid-in-full memberships. You will receive an email receipt when your fitness membership is ready to be used. 

It may take up to one week to process your request. Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to begin using your membership in September. Fitness memberships can be reactivated for use from September 8.  Additional months may be purchased at the following rates per month, up to 12 months in total:

  Adult (19-64yrs) Senior (65yrs+) & Student (19yrs+) Child/Youth (13-18yrs)
Price per month $34.30 $25.75 $18.01
OPTION 2 – Receive a credit on your account

We will place the dollar value of your membership as a credit on your account for the amount of time you paid for but were unable to use your membership, and any remaining time for paid-in-full annual memberships (please see the examples above). NVRC aims to complete all credits by September 30. You will then be able to go online or call us to use your credit to purchase a new 2020 fitness membership for between 1 and 12 months, at the rates above.

You also have the choice to keep your credit to purchase other NVRC programs and services, when you are ready to do so.  You will receive an email receipt when your credit has been placed on your account.

OPTION 3 – Receive a refund

If you would like to receive a refund for your fitness membership now, please email us at refunds@nvrc.ca or call us at 604-987-7529 and we will issue you a refund by cheque. NVRC staff process all refund requests as quickly as possible though depending on the number of requests, it may take up to three weeks. We greatly appreciate your patience.
