Virtual Fitness Programs
The Town of Hay River is happy to offer virtual fitness programming to increase our fitness class offerings. Virtual programming is taught from instructors on the TV in the room. Classes start automatically at the scheduled class times.
Since the classes run without a Town of Hay River staff member in the room it is required that before participating in any Virtual Fitness Class participants must sign a liability waiver.
Liability waivers can be picked up and signed at the Hay River Community Centre Customer Service Desk. Signed waivers are kept at the Customer Service Desk.
