MY GYM LIVE

The RM of Lac du Bonnet Recreation department is partnering with My Gym St Vital to offer a fun virtual family gym program!

My Gym LIVE brings amazing curriculum to your living room, rec room, or home dojo! These are NOT pre-recorded videos; this is LIVE interactive-instruction (two-way communication) from your favorite My Gym teachers!

Here's how it works:
Instead of meeting in person each week, you and your kids will attend My Gym LIVE classes as a supplement to your children's home education, learning, fitness and play. Kids will be able to interact with the teachers as if they were right in the room with them!
Schedule: The new My Gym LIVE class schedule is below.

Attend: When you want to attend one of the live classes, log on to your class from your laptop, smart TV, tablet, or phone and watch LIVE interactive classes led by your child(ren)'s favorite My Gym teachers.

Enjoy and Repeat! It's unlimited! Attend as many classes within your child's age group each week as you like. Whether you are in a parent and me class, a Mighty Mite class, Ninja or any other program, we will have awesome curriculum carefully crafted for your child's development. Siblings are welcome too, included in the inclusive unlimited family rate. Class descriptions included below. 

Enrollment: $35 per family every 4 weeks - enrollment is for the entire family, and you are welcome to attend as many classes as you like each week.
