All fitness classes at MacDonald Island Park can be preregistered or, if space is available, on a drop-in basis. Registering for a program allows all our guests at MacDonald Island Park to reserve and guarantee their spot in advance. This allows our Fitness Department to analyze the minimum amount of participants to avoid cancellation of a program. In addition, our guests receive a considerable discount for registering for a program in its entirety. Drop In is welcome in all fitness programs but it’s based on a first come first serve basis. While no discounts exist within our drop-in prices, members are paying to have more flexibility to suit their busy schedules without committing to the entirety of a program. This also allows our members to join a program that has already started.
