Are you up for the challenge?
Esquimalt Parks and Recreation has one tailored just for you!
For the last few years, Esquimalt Recreation’s 60-Day Challenge has helped locals meet their New Year wellness goals, and this month the program returns better than ever.
“It’s a way to encourage people to get off the couch and revved up for their wellness goals,” says Esquimalt Recreation programmer Vicki Klyne.
Offering small group personal training, with four participants and a trainer, you’ll meet at the Esquimalt fitness centre once a week for two months, the minimum time needed to instil a new habit, Klyne notes.
During the initial session, you’ll discuss your goals with your trainer, come up with a plan, and learn how to use the equipment in the fitness centre. You’ll also receive a variety of other supports to help you be successful.
“Not only will you learn how to reach your goals, but the format helps you stay motivated and accountable. We’ll even have small motivational prizes through the session,” Klyne says, noting last year’s groups had so much fun, many kept working out together right through spring.
Included in the 60-Day Challenge Program is:
- Pre- and post-fitness testing (and weigh-in, if desired);
- Nine, one-hour small group personal training sessions;
- Full access to gym and pool on program training days;
- Additional specialized fitness classes – exclusive to Challenge participants;
- 5-punch drop-in admission pass;
- E-newsletters with valuable advice, guidance and encouragement to keep you on track;
- Participatory incentive prizes;
- And as an option, you can add-on a two-month unlimited access pass, valid 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. seven days a week, for just $50. The unlimited access pass includes admission to more than 40 drop-in fitness classes per week!
Start 2019 investing in your health and wellness! Morning, afternoon and evening sessions are available during various days of the week. “We try to offer as many different sessions as we can to fit in with people’s schedules,” Klyne notes.
