Queens Fitness

The Region of Queens is setting up a subsidy program for fitness instructor training. At the present time there are very few certified leaders in the Region of Queens offering classes to the public . Council feels that with the opening of Queens Place on the horizon, and increased attention nationally to activity levels in youth and adults, there is a need for an increase in local fitness leadership. A major factor in getting certified is the cost, so Council has approved subsidizing 50 percent of course fees to become a fitness leader. Participants will be reimbursed the subsidy upon presentation of a certificate from the course along with a receipt showing they paid for the course.
