National Health & Fitness Day Act

posted by Fitness Focus    |   December 9, 2012 15:48

It was recently announced that MP John Weston of West Vancouver introduced a private memberís bill to establish a National Health and Fitness Day. The bill encourages local governments to open the doors of their facilities on a complementary basis on the first Saturday of June each year. This act hopes to benefit Canadians by encouraging participation in healthy physical activities at a time when obesity-related conditions such as diabetes are taking an increasing toll on our health and economy.

National Health and Fitness Day Saskatoon

This September, Statistics Canada reported that 31.5 per cent of Canadians between ages five and 17 are over-weight or obese. Weston makes it very clear in his statement that he is NOT proposing to create a National Skinny Day. He wants to create a day which revolves around educating Canadians, young and old, about the importance of staying fit through physical activity.  In turn, this Bill will encourage individuals of all demographics to participate in physical activity in order lead a healthier lifestyle.

 Weston has the support of all four parties represented in the House of Commons. Two MPs, the NDPís Peter Stoffer of Nova Scotia and Liberal Kirsty Duncan of Ontario, have publicly endorsed Westonís initiative. With the assistance of the fitness industry, this Bill has a high potential of passing. Currently, many fitness facilities have also shown their support towards hosting National Health and Fitness Day. Some clubs who have already shown their support include, Curves (national), Cambridge Group of Clubs (Ontario) and Fitness Focus (Saskatoon). We are hoping that we can get as many fitness facilities and clubs on board as possible to promote this initiative.

Can you imagine having Multiple Sclerosis? Multiple Sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up? Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It's estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.

About the MS Bike Tour

You can be a dedicated cyclist or just looking for a bit of recreation, pedaling in the MS Bike Tours means you will be a part of an extraordinary group of Canadians who are getting outside to raise money in the fight against MS. The MS Bike Tour is a pledge-based fundraising event that provides Canadians with the opportunity to ride through scenic and often spectacular parts of the country. Over 10,000 cyclists are expected to participate in the 22 one-day and two-day tours taking place across Canada between June and September.

It has been a critical part of the MS Society’s fundraising efforts for over 20 years and proceeds from this event fund innovative programs and services and support ground breaking research dedicated to finding a cure.

Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world which is why we need your help. All you need is a bike and the passion to help find a cure for MS!

Group Fitness Over The Summer

posted by Fitness Focus    |   June 7, 2011 16:27

Just because it's finally nice outside doesn't mean it's time to let go of all the progess you've made from Fall through Spring.  The Group Fitness Studio is still packed with a great class lineup, so when fall rolls around again you don't have to be "that person" wishing you hadn't traded all your workouts for a patio during the summer.

It may take a little extra motivation to make that trip to the gym over the summer when you are trying to take advantade of every minute of sun we get.  Keeping your focus will result in the difference between reaching and maintaining your goals in the gym and in your overall fitness, versus starting from the bottom when the weather turns cold and you decide you've taken enough steps in the opposite direction.

Everyone gets busy during the summer months, but don't lose sight of the importance of getting at least 30 minutes of exercise per day.

Zumba, Spin, Boxercise Tabata, MetCon and much more; see The Aerobics Schedule for classes and times!
