Host a class
Any community/recreation centre can host Osteofit and Get Up & Go! classes. Osteofit classes, weight room programs or personal training sessions must be led by a certified Osteofit instructor/personal trainer. Get Up & Go! programs must be led by certified Get Up & Go! instructors. All Osteofit instructors and personal trainers must renew certification every three years. Our Falls Prevention program will provide support and act as a liaison between your facility and BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre.
