The City of Delta has launched self-guided women-only workout sessions at Sungod Recreation Centre.

The new program aims to provide “a supportive, inclusive space for women in Delta to get active,’ according to a press release Monday, and was developed from patron feedback that indicated a need for a comfortable and private space exclusive for women.

“Creating safe, inclusive spaces is a priority for the City of Delta, especially when it comes to recreation,” the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture, Trent Reid, said in a press release.

“Our fitness staff heard the feedback from our community and provided this dedicated program to ensure that everyone who uses our facilities has the opportunity to feel comfortable and achieve their fitness goals. Our recreation and community centres are meant to be used by everyone and this initiative furthers our commitment to fostering a welcoming environment.”

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the aerobics studio at Sungod will be open for women’s only fitness from 3 to 5 p.m.

The sessions are unstructured, with participants leading their own programs with the equipment available in the studio — including weights, mats, stationary bikes and more. A fitness staff member will be available to participants every 15 minutes to answer questions and assist them during the session.

The women-only workout sessions are open to all women 13 years of age and older, regardless of fitness experience.

Advanced registration is not required, however participants can reserve a spot through the city’s online registration system (
