It’s the only place in the Shuswap where you can attend fitness classes three times a week for 75 minutes each session from September to June for only $130. Less than a $1.15 per session! Everyone is invited to stay for coffee after sessions for only 25 cents. It’s a wonderful place to make new friends and get out of the house for a few hours on your own.

There is a class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we start at 9:00a.m in the lower hall. We also have a three month summer session for an additional $45 that starts at 8:00am.


The class is a nice mixture of aerobics, strength training and stretching. More than one instructor is always in attendance to make sure everyone does the exercises correctly and offer alternatives for those with mobility issues. We all know that staying active is the key to good health so why not become a member of Cedar Heights for $35 and join the class.

Why so reasonable?

We are really fortunate to have a dedicated group of certified fitness instructors registered with BCRPA who volunteer their time to keep our rates low and help improve the health and vitality of our members.

Here is our current lineup of instructors. Click on their names to learn a little bit about them. Both Heather Hargreaves and Sherri Reimer received a 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award from Cedar Heights in recognition of their 10 years volunteering over 1000 hours every year to keep our members healthy and happy!

Heather Hargreaves

Began attending Keep Fit as a participant over 12 years ago and through the encouragement of the originator of the program, Betty Cosens, became an instructor more than 10 years ago. Heather says the generosity of CHCA has enabled her to grow her knowledge and encourage all participants to be safe and have fun while remaining fit and active. Heather loves to swim and play golf and is truly an example of the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.

Dorothy Lind

Dorothy is our newest instructor and her experience as a former elementary teacher back in Saskatchewan has helped her feel comfortable in her new role. She retired to the Shuswap in 2007 but she’s still a diehard Riders fan. An amazing fact about Dorothy, she is still a member of Girl Guides after 60 years! She’s also known for her love of music and colour, with a blue streak or two in her hair and her colourful leggings.

Sharon Spearman

Moved here from Abbotsford and has only been an instructor for a year, but you would never know it. A former bookkeeper who loves to stay active, she plays pickleball, bridge and volunteers at the school in the 1-1 reading program and the Seniors Resource Centre. Sharon loves teaching, and she does a fine job of keeping the group in line when they get a bit rowdy.

Sherri Reimer

Retired here from the lower mainland and enjoys spending time outside hiking, golfing, fishing and kayaking. She loves music of every genre and everyone enjoys her dry sense of humour. Sherry has been an instructor for 8 years and says the benefits are many, physical, mental, emotional and social. She has met many wonderful people from all walks of life and all with their own stories.


The biggest personal improvement has been the massive improvement in my blood pressure. I had tried healthy food and long walks, but it’s only since attending the class that it has steadily dropped to where I no longer have to take medications

I joined the exercise program after going through cancer treatment and it was the best decision I made for my health. I will be celebrating more than 10 years of being a cancer survivor and the class has helped me get back my strength. Thanks for keeping me healthy
— Alvina
The fringe benefit of the class is the social aspect. The coffee and fellowship after class allowed me to meet many new friends here in Blind Bay. Being recently widowed I was quite lonely after the move to Blind Bay, on class days I feel much happier and able to cope with the grieving process
— Linda
I’m one of the guys in Keep Fit and I’m still going after 12 years because I saw the real benefit of the program. I cannot say enough about the quality of instruction and commitment provided by each of the instructors. This program has helped me to remain strong and flexible despite chronic back problems. The social aspect of the program can’t be overlooked and I am proud to have been an integral part of it by helping to start and maintain the after class coffee get together. Where else can you stay fit, have fun and cost you next to nothing.
