FREE sports and fitness classes offered in Calgary this week

Jan 22 2018, 6:47 pm

When was the last time you played something new?

With the everyday responsibilities of adulthood piling up, it’s hard to dedicate any time towards getting out and being active, let alone giving an entirely new sport a try.

Luckily enough for Calgarians 18 and over, Sport Calgary is stepping in to remedy that lack of play.

All Sport One City is a week-long initiative that’s taking place all over Calgary, where fitness and sport classes will be made free for anyone willing to give them a go.

From the basics of netball to the gravity-defying workings of parkour, adults will finally be able to try their hands at all the things they’d always been curious about.

Fencing, dancing, wheelchair basketball, and yoga are just a few of the activities being offered from January 22 to January 27, and – because we can’t mention it enough – they’re all completely free.

Keep in mind, that also means there will be other people at these classes who are just as hilariously inexperienced as you are, so there’s no need to worry about making a fool of yourself.

The list of sports and fitness classes offered is exhaustive, to put it mildly, with upwards of 25 different activities available each day. Notable additions are Geng Table Tennis, InjaNation trampoline classes, Netball at the University of Calgary, horseshoe throwing lessons, and more.

A full list of possible activities for each day can be found here.

According to the All Sport One City website, many of the sessions are also adaptable for Calgarians with physical disabilities.

The initiative starts on Monday, January 22… which means you can register for something cool (and free) to do today. 

So, what are you waiting for?
