Witness Their Fitness

After a small hiatus in blogging I’d like to tell you about what happened about a month ago.
In April, we kicked off the 17th annual Bentall Kennedy Fitness Month which involved 29 fitness & wellness events in 30 days for 240 corporate employees involving all types of physical activity, eating right, and team spirit!
The events commenced with the Bentall Centre Athletic Clubs head to toe Health and Fitness Appraisal (HFA) which helps the participants reveal their body’s current state of wellness regarding body composition, musculoskeletal fitness, lifestyle habits, and vital signs. The rest of the programming involved:  a fiercely competitive 5 week Wallyball tournament (indoor Volleyball), The Vancouver 10km Sun Run and training camp, indoor rock climbing, a North Shore hike to Quarry Rock, a Ski and Snow day at Mt. Seymour, Yoga, Boxing, Golf, Frisbee Golf, and 8 bootcamp style core, spin, and fitness classes.
Now that’s variety.
I’m pleased to report that 40 of our most regular participants made a log of their physical activity during April’s fitness month events which tallied up to 224 attendances and 881 hours of physical activity. Yeah! That’s what I call a work/lifestyle balance.
That means on average we had about 22 hours of exercise of per person for the week of April. Great stuff, however our overall goal is to encourage people to get active every day for about an hour, which on average leaves us a few hours short per person this year.
However, some far exceeded this expectation… and I’d like to give a big congratulations to David Kwan for being out top participant and logging 45 hours of activity and a whopping 85 points. Hooo Raaah David!
Lastly, it’s great to be involved with a company such as Bentall Kennedy who is very conscientious about their employee’s wellness and encourage participation in fun and engaging fitness programs like this, and also who welcome the families to be involved as much as possible for the fitness events.
In closing I’d like to communicate to you the message endorse to all of our clients and that is:  to get active, eat healthy, and be regular about it. Feelin’ good is worth it. And the best way to get feel good is to get regular exercise, stretch often, and watch what (and how much) you eat from time to time.
Cheers
