Natural High Fitness

On April 11, 2022, Town Council voted in favour of approving a rent reduction request that was brought forward by Natural High Fitness. Natural High Fitness has been providing health and fitness services to the community of Okotoks at the Recreation Centre for over 15 years. Like many businesses, Natural High Fitness was negatively impacted by Provincially mandated closures. Several businesses have successfully negotiated with their landlords, rent reductions to help with the sustainability of their business.

In this case, the Town of Okotoks is the landlord for Natural High Fitness. Through our commitment to transparency, and as a government body requirement, when approving rent reductions to below current market values, we advertise the Town’s intent to approve their request. You may have seen the advertisement recently in the Western Wheel.

We know that some people have questions about this decision. In this video, Town CAO Vincent provides clarity surrounding some of the considerations Council faced in making the decision to support the request from Natural High Fitness.

Here you will find the Council meeting video and associated reports surrounding Council’s decision making process.

Additionally, you are always welcome to reach out to any member of Council orTown Administration.
