Jeanette Jackson wants the City of Port Moody to allow non-staff personal trainers to work at the Port Moody Recreation Complex. Currently, only city-appointed trainers are allowed to work there.
"This is a $26-million facility paid for by residents and donors," Jackson told council Feb. 10. "I am shocked that a public facility does not allow outside personal trainers."
"I tried a variety of options before I chose my trainer. It's a personal investment, and city-employed trainers are nearly double the cost."
Mayor Joe Trasolini said council will revisit Jackson's request at its next meeting.
