Langley, BC – Residents of the City of Langley have been getting the City’s vision for a healthy and active community, with hundreds of people getting motivated together and participating in group classes at the new Timms Community Centre.

“Over the past month we’ve seen residents and visitors really embrace what we’re doing at the Timms Centre,” said Mayor Ted Schaffer. “It’s such a friendly and approachable place for people to get active. It’s great that the whole community can get involved.”

Since the new Timms Centre opened at the end of February instructors, have led hundreds of classes teaching everything from Zumba to ballroom dancing. The wide range of activities caters for all ages and fitness levels and the group classes have become a hub for the community.

“Having a like-minded group of people in the same room keeps the motivation going and makes it much easier to stick to your fitness goals,” said Lynn Baker, one of the City of Langley’s qualified fitness instructors who leads classes at the Timms Centre. “No matter what level of fitness you’re at, there are always others in there with you providing encouragement and looking forward to seeing you in class.”

The state-of-the-art Technogym cardio room has seen extensive use, with instructors advising on the best workout programs for everyone from athletes to those looking to tone up for summer.

Programs and hours of operation have expanded to enable members to fit in a morning workout or lunchtime classes. The new hours have been particularly popular with parents, providing flexibility around other commitments.
