A stronger, healthier you

Let’s Make 2022 the year for a stronger, healthier you! This is the first sentence in our information package for our new year-long fitness program; BENEFIT. In 2022 Kerby Centre and Veiner Centre will be unveiling a multitude of new programs, classes, services, and events targeted at helping you to live your best life, your healthiest life.

If you read our Strategic Plan (available on our website) you will find our first strategic goal is to ensure that our programs and services are continually evolving to meet the needs of older adults. 

We have learned a few things through the pandemic, and we intend to use these learnings to revitalize our Health and Wellness Programs for seniors. Because our centres were closed for significant portions of the last two years, we learned how to use zoom and other technologies to hold classes and events that we could no longer hold in person. We asked various health and wellness experts to help us hold classes online for our members.

What did we learn from this? Well, we learned that some great presenters and experts would gladly help us and that more older adults would participate in the events on zoom than if we had held the classes in our gym or lecture hall.

Throughout 2022, we will be unveiling some great new additions to our Wellness programs, some of these will be aimed at your physical health and some will be supporting your mental health. Some will be digital or virtual and some will be in person. We are very excited about these changes and about the opportunity to be a small part of helping you to live your best life. 

By the way, if you can’t join us on zoom for all the great wellness presentations we are holding — we will continue to post them on our YouTube channel so you can view them on your own time. It is February, but it is not too late to join us for our yearlong fitness journey. You just need to call our Education and Recreation program at 403-705-3233 and they will send you all the info you need and sign you up. 

We didn’t want there to be any barriers to your 2022 fitness journey, so there is no price or registration fee, you just need to give us a call. With that being said, there is no fee but there are some great prizes and recognition for those of you who join us. 

Be sure to call and register today, I am signing up myself, in fact!
