Challenge yourself while building friendships and community by taking part in Red Deer Polytechnic’s annual fitness events.

All our Events are FREE to attend, unless an Activity Fee is listed; we request all participants to bring a Food Bank donation. All food donations will be collected and distributed to the Students' Association Student Food Bank.
Holiday Fitness Frenzy
Monday, December 3 through to Thursday, December 21
Fitness and Sport Services will commence our Holiday Fitness Frenzy in the month of December, which means all sessions are FREE to attend by food donation to the Student Association Food Bank; our team will be happy to accept donations of non-perishable food items to attend a desired fitness session.
What this means to participants:
- Current fitness pass holders will get their passes extended for the 3-week time frame, if they have an active pass during the FREE offering time, as well as donate to the Red Deer Polytechnic Student Association Food Bank.
- Our everyday fitness centre members will get to try fitness classes for FREE, if they donate to the Red Deer Polytechnic Student Association Food Bank.
- If you know someone who is not a member, share the information to come try a fitness class for FREE during our Fitness Frenzy; if they donate to the Red Deer Polytechnic Student Association Food Bank.
Our priority is being put on the Red Deer Polytechnic Student Association Food Bank, so we ask for a small offering each time, however, if you choose not to participate in the offering, you are welcome to forego donating and access the $5.00 Special Event Drop-In fee to attend classes.
Red Deer Polytechnic Student Association Food Bank food bins are located next to Guest Services at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.
Check out the schedule online and book your FREE December sessions today.
