Active Living Program

The Active Living Program at St. John's Rehab Hospital can help you improve your strength, endurance, range of motion and balance, regardless of your age or fitness level.

For one hour each week for eight weeks, participants work with physiotherapist assistants on a combination of exercises that target muscles and joints in the legs, arms and core. Exercises, although very effective, are simple enough for you to repeat at home.

Join our 8-week full body exercise program and become one step closer to a healthier new you!

Program cost: $110 per eight-week session, includes TheraBand®. Fees do not include parking.

Classes available:

  • Tuesday at 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Thursday at 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

The day of your class will depend on your preference and space availability. Dates are subject to change.
