Fitness Month

Every April, for the past 18 years BentallKennedy ( the owners of the Bentall Centre Athletic Club) has put on a heath and wellness fare for their 250 employees in the Vancouver business district. “Fitness Month” as we call it, consists of 36 fitness classes, outdoor recreation, and wellness seminars in 30 days. It has been my pleasure to be the coordinator of Fitness Month for the past 5 years, which has brought a great deal of fun, wellness and healthy living to each of the participants, as well as myself.

Here’s some details about what’s happened this month so far.

Snowday at Mt. Seymour on April 1st wasn’t anyone’s fool. The thick fog lifted to present a perfect afternoon of fresh soft snow and unlimited sunshine!! For the first time in 5 years the clouds lifted to make for a perfect Bentall Snowday. Yaahoooo.

After we assembled approximately 60 of us in The Three Peaks Lodge at 9am, everyone grabbed their tickets and rental passes and ventured off in roughly 5 directions. First, the Tubers and Tobagganers hit the park, next the snowshoers headed out with their guided tour, while the skiers and snow grabbed their equipment and headed for lessons, and the young parents (me & Johanna) held down the fort in the lodge. Everyone had a blast!! As usual, the lunch Mt. Seymour lunches from the Grillworks were below average, but everyone happily munched back French fries, dogs, soda, or cardboard pizza. No one seemed to mind.

On Tuesday April 3rd the regular season of Wallyball kicked off with some serious ricochets and great team enthusiasm. Denial of Service took the early lead winning both games and only allowing 41 points against. The Outcasts also winning 2 games, but allowed 44 points against which placed them in second position. Daily Special: SERVED hot and SPIKED took third with the strongest effort in the one win and one loss category. I’m very interested to see how things play out next week.

Have a great Easter Break, and we’ll see you week for the Cancer Prevention seminar and next Sunday for the Vancouver 10km Sun Run!
