Back to Fitness - Back the Cat Challenge

The Garage hosted the Back to Fitness - Back the Cat Challenge this past weekend--and, what can I say... although the turn-out wasn't as good as it could have been, it was a beautiful day and everyone who attended had fun--we skipped, we hula-hooped, we did resistance band exercises and stretches... we even ended the session with a group massage led by Karin Bergen, RMT.

There was also a draw for prizes. And the winners were:

Paul Steenhuis - 3 personal training sessions
Marlene Lowden - Massage
Paul Hood - Acu-Hoop hula hoop

To me, in order to start or continue with an exercise routine, it's essential that you find an activity or activities you like to do and have fun! That's pretty basic. The challenge was an opportunity for people to try everything from boot camp and yoga to circuit training, personal training and hula hooping. And with the proceeds going to help healthcare on the coast--what could be better? I still think it's a good idea--get people moving/raise money for a good cause... maybe we'll make it an annual event!

Thanks to everyone who supported this event!
