Being active has many health benefits for all ages, so don’t wait, start today.
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
A quote from Arthur Ashe; professional tennis player, outlines the approach that Whitby fitness takes with every new participant. Anyone can do it. We’re here to help you!
The Whitby Civic Recreation Complex Health Club’s Healthy Start program is available to all members, as part of their membership.
Getting started, making healthy choices and staying active is easier with the support of the Town of Whitby fitness staff. Certified by the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, the fitness staff will help you to get started and to stick with it.
Receive hands on assistance from a free fitness assessment and personally designed fitness program, to ongoing coaching and motivation, any time you are in the facility.
Get started at any stage of your life. The Get Active, Stay Active – Your Way program is designed for sedentary older adults, age 60+ to become more involved in physical activities, make healthier eating choices and make new social connections.
Certified fitness staff will assist participants to find their best way to stay active for life. Participants that have started in this program love it. Heather Earl likes that you work at your own pace, get a push when needed, but it’s gentle.
Michael Silz joined the program to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle, but he found the social aspect of the program very rewarding. David Joseph says, “it’s an outstanding program, that got him motivated and on the right path to reaching his physical fitness and nutrition goals”.
You should try it too!
This program has been made possible by a grant through the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund, from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for an Active Living Program for adults age 60+ who are not currently active.
