Fitness 4 Life, a mobile personal training company, is now offering affordable group fitness sessions throughout the week to help Columbia Valley develop a healthy active lifestyle that incorporates the four basic components of health-related fitness.

According to Canada’s Physical Activity Guide to Healthy Active Living, Canadians should aim for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, including endurance, strength training, and flexibility, four days a week.

Body Blast is a 30-minute workout that combines resistance training, cardiorespiratory endurance, and flexibility training to maximize time efficiency.

“A healthy active lifestyle will reduce a number of health risks; including heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, and depression”, explains Jill Andrews, owner of Fitness 4 Life.

“Most people aren’t getting enough exercise, and generally, it’s because they don’t have the time or the motivation. Fortunately, it’s never too late to start thinking about your health.

Our 30-minute Body Blast was designed to get clients in and out the door as fast as possible”.

To show the valley just how easy it is to incorporate 30 minutes of exercise into even the busiest of schedules, Andrew, and certified personal trainers Kate Atkinson and Hayley Wilson, are offering a free Body Blast workout.

Join them on September 25 and learn how living an active lifestyle is key to staying healthy.

“This class is for everyone.  Whether you’ve been exercising for 20 years or you’re just starting to think about getting in shape, we provide exercise options for all,” explains Andrews. “The main thing is to get moving and have fun.”
