In order to maintain our high level of customer service and ensure your guest will have a pleasant, enjoyable and safe experience at One Health Clubs.
If the guest has been in before, they are still required to complete a new Welcome Form as they are only valid for one day. Together with completing the Welcome Form they are required to provide Photo ID for identification and for safety reasons as the club is responsible for knowing who is in the club at all times in case of an emergency.
We have adopted policies for our indoor aquatics areas (“pool” or “aquatics” area) for your safety and enjoyment. These policies supplement any posted rules and regulations. You must follow all policies, rules, regulations and directives at all times, whether they are written, posted or orally delivered by a lifeguard, attendant or other One Health Clubs team member. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the pool area or suspension or termination of guest privileges or membership.
When deciding to use the pool, we ask that you familiarize yourself with the One Health Clubs Etiquette for the Aquatic area and respect all policies and procedures that are in place.
All participants using the pool must abide by the regulations of Health Canada and the Region of Peel and are required to take a shower using warm water and soap, then thoroughly rinsing off all soap before entering the pool. Band Aids will fall off in the water, so please make sure that they are removed and thrown in the garbage before entering the pool area. Swimmers with open sores, wounds or warts should not be entering the pool and if noticed, will be asked to leave immediately.
If equipment is taken to use in the pool, then this should be returned to the proper storage area at the completion of your swim/workout. Please do not leave equipment lying around on the pool deck as this can be considered a hazard. Noodles, flutter boards and belts are not life preservers and should not be used in replace of a life jacket if needed.
When coming to participate in a class, we ask that you please arrive on time and always check with the instructor or Lifeguard to make sure the pool has not reached capacity. Talking during classes is a distraction for the instructor and other participants so we ask that chatter take place before or after the class time and you respect the instructor and other participants.
We recommend you check the Aqua Class Schedule to confirm when all pool lanes are open for lane swimming or when there are classes/programs going on that restrict the number of lanes available. When Family Swim is in progress there will be a total of 24 participants allowed in the pool area. The roped off lanes are for sharing and can hold up to 3 members at a time. Before entering a lane with another swimmer, be sure to approach them in a friendly and polite manner to make them aware that you are joining in the lane and clarify which side to stay on while swimming. Water joggers should stay to the open area of the pool to allow for maximal use of the lanes for swimmers.

We offer introductory to advanced group fitness classes focused on cardio and resistance training (e.g., athletic and choreographed), flexibility, balance and strength. We also offer mind/body classes including yoga, hot yoga and Pilates.
Reserving Space or Equipment. Any space or equipment that is unoccupied five minutes prior to class is considered available for use by any class participant in the room. You may reserve only one bike for yourself on the day of the class and only one hour prior to the start of class by placing a towel or a water bottle on each bike. You may not reserve bikes the night before a class. The equipment in our studios is for use by class participants only upon the instruction of One Health Clubs team members.
Class Etiquette. We request that you arrive for class 5 minutes early to prepare your space or equipment (e.g., bike, yoga mat/props, etc.) and, as applicable, sign in. The warm up at the outset of the class is an important part of the work out. If you arrive late, please enter the class quietly and appropriately. Because classes are designed as group activities, you should follow the instructor’s routines or instructions consistent with your personal abilities and limits. You must wait for a class to conclude before entering the studio to prepare for the next scheduled class. Please wear attire and, except for yoga, shoes appropriate for the class. You must have a sweat towel for cycle and mat work, and may keep closable, unbreakable water bottles at the perimeter of the studio. No other personal effects are permitted in the studio. Your cell phones must be turned off or in silent mode. After class, please wipe down and return all equipment to its proper place. Only One Health Clubs team members may operate the stereo equipment.
Special Yoga Etiquette. To avoid disruption, you should not enter class during opening meditation or leave during the closing resting pose. If you must leave class, please inform the instructor at the outset and do so before the final pose. You may not wear shoes in the Hot Yoga Studio. You should wear comfortable layered, stretchable clothes, and no shoes, perfumes, or heavy jewellery. All male participants are required to wear a shirt for the duration of the class.
Special Hot Yoga Etiquette and Guidelines
All Hot Yoga participants are required to fill out a Hot Yoga Waiver prior to participating in your first class. You can print a waiver off this website and hand it in at reception or you can fill out a waiver at the reception desk.
- arrive 10-15 minutes early to acclimatize to the heat
- refrain from eating a heavy meal 2-3 hours before practicing
- arrive well hydrated and bring water with you
- inform your instructor if you are working with any serious injuries or limitations to ensure you receive modifications
- there will be no admittance to class once the class has started. We ask once you enter the hot studio for a class you stay for the duration, even if you need to rest in child’s pose
Who should NOT practice hot yoga?
Exercising in hot temperatures can put stress on the cardiovascular system therefore hot yoga is not recommended for:
- pregnant women
- frail elderly people or young children
- people with chronic disease or who have suffered heat strokes/heat stress in the past
- people with Cardiovascular disease, including aneurysm, angina, artherosclerosis, congenital heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke
- people suffering from asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, kidney disease, fluid retention or sleep deprivation
- people who have alcohol or stimulant drugs in their system
If I take prescription drugs are there any concerns if I do hot yoga?
Some prescription medications like cardiac drugs, beta blocker and anticholinergic or antimusccarine medications (prescriptions for Parkinson’s Disease) may interfere with the body’s heat loss mechanisms making those who use them more susceptible to heat illness.
If you develop the following symptoms during hot yoga, activity must be discontinued:
- a feeling of sudden and severe fatigue
- nausea &/or dizziness
- muscle weakness
- a cessation of sweating accompanied by hot skin
- a period of inexplicable irritability, malaise, or flu like symptoms
Age Limit. You must be at least 18 years old to enter and use the workout floors. In some circumstances, you may be at least 16 years old, provided you are accompanied by a One Health Clubs Personal Trainer or parent/legal guardian.
Equipment. You must follow all safety procedures for equipment use and refrain from dropping free weights. If you have any questions about equipment use, please see a One Health Clubs coach or personal trainer to familiarize yourself with its use. You must turn off, return or replace all equipment used to its original condition when you are not using it. Please wipe down equipment with antibacterial wipes located on the workout floors before and after use.
Equipment Etiquette. Take care of what’s available. Don’t let weight stacks crash down at the end of a set. Don’t drop the weights when you’re done either—it’s loud and very distracting for others around you. Remove your weight plates. You wouldn’t want to strip a few hundred pounds off the bar every time you go to the rack, so don’t leave anything on the bar when you’re done, either. For dumbbells, we have labelled designated spots for each one, so put them back in those spots. This will also save time when you’re looking for what you need.
Equipment Reservation. You may not reserve equipment for your personal use, such as with a towel, sign or note unless otherwise permitted (such as immediately prior to a scheduled Group Fitness class). You must honour all signs on equipment, including notices that the equipment has been reserved or is out or service for maintenance.
Equipment in Disrepair. If you notice that any equipment is in disrepair, do not use it. Please report it immediately to a One Health Clubs team member. We are not responsible for injuries sustained while using equipment, even in the event of equipment failure, malfunction or disrepair.
Personal Items. You may not bring or set bags, clothing, food or other items on the equipment or workout floors. You may not use cell phones or laptops on the workout floors, including specifically while using any equipment.
Personal Hygiene. Exercising will make you sweat and that can cause body odour. Wear a good deodorant/antiperspirant to keep odour to a minimum, but don’t spray yourself with perfume before hitting the gym—some people are very sensitive to scent and get headaches or migraines from the chemicals.
Be thoughtful, respectful and have a great workout.
