Time for a Tune Up

March 29, 2019

As we move into April we start to think of spring, being outside and everything we are going to do.  Does our body agree with our intentions?  We never hesitate to spend on vehicle maintenance, from new brakes to oil changes to tunes ups we invest money in our cars every day, month and year. Yet when we talk about investing in the most important vehicle we own, our body, we hesitate. Gym memberships are a luxury, and forget about personal training sessions. Our bodies carry us through life all day – every day. How we go through life in our body vehicle depends on how well we maintain it. Don’t hesitate – invest in your body. Read More →

Recreation Services Offering Free Personal Fitness Assessments

March 28, 2019

New for 2019, Rebels Recreation Services will be holding Personal Fitness Assessments in the North Gym at NDC Tuesday,  April 9th, 2019, 11am-1pm.

The Personal Fitness Assessments is a series of 5 movements testing lower body, upper body strength and endurance as well as flexibility.

The five stations will be push up, sit up, grip strength, squats and sit-reach. Each test will require the participant to do as many repetitions as they can safely until max repetition. Each participant will get an assessment card and proceed to follow a circuit of stations and follow through the cycle to complete each activity.

After all five stations are completed, the participant will bring their card back to the desk to get their scores totaled and then they will be given a take home card with recommendations of activities that can improve some of the their scores.

The Personal Fitness Assessments are open to all RRC staff and students, free to attend, and will be overseen by Recreation Services Fitness Coordinator Mario de Negri.

For more information, please contact Mario at mdenegri@rrc.ca

Week 4 Prize Winner: Debbie Donato

From Debbie: ” After a busy day at the office, my walking buddy, Cooper, was more than happy to help me get my steps in – a total of 9514 for the day. With all the energy that this 110 lb pupper needs to burn off, he’s quite a reliable source of motivation to Get Movin’!”
