Florence | Faces of Recreation

Florence is an HR Staff Member.

At first I participated because I wanted to do something good for my health, now I participate because the programs are fun and unique.

Having recreation programming so close to work is what initially attracted Florence to sign up for classes in 2012, but she soon realized the huge variety of programs meant there’s always something new to try out. Whether it’s an early class to start the day off on a positive note, lunch-time exercise to reset the mind, or a fun class to look forward to at the end of the day, there is always an exciting option for her to get moving.

Florence’s Top Picks

Free Week

“With so many fitness, instructional, and aquatics classes to choose from, I was thrilled to find out that I could try as many as I wanted absolutely free!”

Free instructional, fitness, and aquatics classes are running all week. No experience is required for any of the classes. Check out the schedule to find the right class for you. All abilities are welcome!

Adult Swimming Classes

“This facility’s bright and welcoming environment met my high expectations – not to mention that there is so much to do. I particularly loved the adult swimming lessons, as well as the new River Walking class.”

Jump in to the new UBC Aquatic Centre for drop-in swimming, aquacize fitness classes, swimming lessons, springboard diving lessons, learn to scuba dive, advanced aquatics, and first aid courses. Check out the online schedule for more details.
