The COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges to maintaining an active lifestyle, but we know physical activity is vitally important for our health. How can exercise help in during the pandemic? Regular, moderate-intensity physical activity is associated with better immune function, helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and can help to manage and reduce the risk of developing other health conditions* that are associated with the greatest risk for severe complications of COVID-19.
PACE’s in-person community exercise programs are closed until further notice to reduce the risk of virus transmission, so we’re bringing the exercise to you!
Exercise along with our Registered Kinesiologists and Physiotherapist from the comfort and safety of your home. Classes focus on multiple components of fitness and exercises are modifiable based on fitness level and accessibility requirements.
