Keeping fit is good for your health

Use your lunch time to get fit

Strapped for time? Check out the new lunch time fitness classes at the Community Centre

Is your new year’s resolution to be fitter in 2012?

Strapped for time? Check out the new lunch time fitness classes at the Community Centre starting Jan. 4.

Classes will run every weekday from 12:10- 12:50 p.m. Choose from Zumba, X-Fit, Kick Boxing and two yoga classes.

Keeping fit is good for your health, and for business. Studies show that healthy employees have a 22 per cent lower rate of absenteeism and a 10-times lower turnover rate. Plus, healthy employees demonstrate improved productivity, mood and a better attitude at work.

With statistics like this, your employer should be paying you to work out at lunch!

Use a Sportsplex fitness pass or 10-punch card to attend these classes. Or, drop in for $7.

The Community Centre has change rooms, lockers and showers available.

If you want to put your lunch break to good use and feel energized for the rest of the day, remember, classes run Monday to Friday starting Jan. 4, 2012 at 12:10 p.m.

For more information, call 250-923-7911 or 250-286-1161. Or check us out on Facebook at Campbell River Rec.
