Group Sessions for Fitness, Education & Cooking Demos 

The 8 weeks of group sessions are designed to empower, support and provide accountability for your transformation towards healthier lifestyle choices. Each week you will enjoy exercise, health education classes, guest speaker, cooking demos and much more! 

Fitness

Exercise helps you to live a longer, more active life. Your well-being depends on your strength, flexibility, balance, and stamina. Regular exercise increases your body’s basal metabolic rate (the amount of energy your burn while resting), energy levels, muscle mass, bone density, and heart rate and lung function. Additionally, exercise enhances immune function, elevates your mood and mental performance, promotes quality sleep, and increases stress resilience. 

NEW TO THE PROGRAM - Fitness classes will be offered twice a week!!  This will allow for flexible scheduling and the opportunity to take advantage of an extra fitness session each week and enjoy double the benefit from regular exercise.  

Fitness classes will be held on Monday & Wednesday evening from 7pm - 8pm (doors open at 6:45pm) at Laurentian Hills Christian School, 11 Laurentian Dr, Kitchener.  Change rooms are available.  

Each week participants will enjoy an exercise program lead by Gloria Vaughan, Personal Trainer, Fitness Instructor & Certified YogaFit Instructor.  Gloria will lead a strength training program that is designed to suite all levels of fitness.   The program is also designed to empower participants to take home the exercise to do on their own time as part of their exercise commitment.
