"I love barre for so many good reasons: It is my happy place. It is a part of my day where I get to have fun and discover what my body is capable of doing. All of the instructors are wonderful, talented people, who do a great job and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into the classes."
"Working out for your health is not always about setting a personal record in the gym or a perfect training program. Something I often say to my training clients is that we as adults don’t play enough. I learned that doing a fun dance class or crazy boot camp with my friends may not have gotten me as sweaty as a perfectly structured kettlebell workout by my trainer self’s standards, but it gave me benefits in so many other ways. It got me moving, laughing, and having fun—and that is just as crucial to our health as a weight training session. Goofing off is not a bad thing!"
"Before I retired, sport and fitness was always just for fun – a hobby alongside my full-time job. Even so, after joining a running club in my 40s, I managed to travel all over the world competing in sprint races in my spare time.
"I wouldn't be able to achieve all the things I was trying to achieve in my life if I wasn't at the peak of fitness.
"I love a new challenge and working toward a big ride or event. Having a goal in mind keeps training fun and motivating. I work for the BC Cancer Foundation, so the Ride to Conquer Cancer is near and dear to my heart on both a personal and professional level."
"I love the game! I love the cardio, too - after a game, I'm exhausted. I feel like the past hour and a half has been worth the activity, and I know I've had a good workout. I love the challenge of the game because anything can happen: You can meet a more difficult opponent, set up a beautiful pass, get an amazing goal, save tough shots, have the stress and excitement of shoot-outs and, most of all, have fun with a bunch of friends."
“Running with friends is the best. You can chat and just have fun. And it’s really great!”
"I move so I can eat Mexican food, drink margaritas and play with my girlfriends!”
