Our February Wellness Champion is Mark Montour

February 13, 2020

Congrats to Mark “Monty” Montour on being selected as our February Wellness Champion!

Mark is a first-year Rebels basketball athlete enrolled in the Social Innovation and Community Development program at Red River College (NDC). He plays an active role in the campus community – as a member of the 4R group and the RRRC. Despite his busy schedule, Mark demonstrates excellent time management skills and makes time to be active and to focus on his overall wellness. He participates in our drop-in ball hockey on Wednesdays and works out regularly at the Loft fitness centre. When he is not at school, Mark loves to go swimming with his sons.

“The biggest thing I did to contribute to my overall wellness was signing up for school,” says Mark. “I tried out for the basketball team and used it as the catalyst to quit smoking.” He also emphasizes the importance of mental health and that we need to strive to have fun and enjoy life. Mark says “There is no more important thing in overall wellness than laughing.”

When asked to share some tips for others, Mark had the following to say: “Just do it. Every journey starts with the first step. Find your motivation. Find a reason and focus on it. I find that I create relationships that help in creating a sense of community. Playing on a team will help force the issue of committing to it.”

Mark values the opportunity he was given to play basketball on the Rebels team and is thankful that students have free access to the campus weight room. He says that the environment at RRC has helped encourage good health and well-being for students.

If you’re ever lacking any motivation to get to the gym – Mark has the following encouragement for you:
“One thing I use for motivation is realizing that you have been blessed with the vessel that is your body. You only have one and you are going to have it for the rest of your life! Better take care of it!”

23 1/2 hours

January 15, 2020

by Mario De Negri, Rebels Rec Services Fitness Coordinator

Here is an interesting video I came across which speaks to me as I believe movement is medicine and should be taken daily. I think about movement as a pill and ask myself if I took it today or not. I often get caught up in the time it takes to move and why I can’t just swallow it and be done with it.

What’s love got to do with it? Getting started on being active

January 4, 2020

For many people exercise presents a special set of challenges. Here’s a realistic guide for getting started and not getting discouraged.

What’s love got to do with it? When it comes to fitness, in the end, love is all that matters. Exercising in public when you’re out of shape can be an emotionally bruising experience. Huffing and puffing to keep up, you feel inadequate and self-conscious, hating every moment you spend on the treadmill or pacing the track maybe you’re trying to tell yourself something.       Read More →

Mark Ridd a star for Rebels men’s basketball team, both on and off the court

December 19, 2019

While shooting hoops at Red River College, Mark Ridd was spotted by the right person and had his RRC life changed.

RRC athletics staff – saw Ridd shooting and, one of who remembered Ridd from competing against him in other leagues got him in contact with Rebels coach Scott Kirkpatrick.

Kirkpatrick and Ridd had a previous relation from Ridd’s days at Oak Park High School, and it didn’t take long before the Electrical Engineering student was convinced to join the Rebels.

It was a perfect match: Ridd helped guide the Rebels to back-to-back championships in 2018 and 2019, along with being named the Rebels MVP and an MCAC All-Conference athlete in 2019, while the Rebels gave Ridd a highly competitive team to play on, a team Ridd said makes him proud. Read More →
