Pound Fitness

Fall 2020 Programming Overview:

The Town of Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s is looking forward to seeing participants in the coming weeks. We have missed our fitness and program family! It has been a long, challenging few months for everyone due to the ongoing pandemic, and we hope the return of these programs bring some joyful activity to your lives.

It is important for all participants to recognize that programs will look much different than when things ended in the winter session, prior to the pandemic. There are new procedures and protocols in place to lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission. These include changes to the room layout, schedule, numbers of participants, and more.

Please ensure to read the Fall Programming 2020 Overview document in full and contact our recreation staff if you have any questions.

We’re excited to offer a new and fun way to get active this fall – Pound Fitness!
