June 3 is National Health and Fitness Day.
Here are our suggestions to celebrate it!
Canyon Meadows Pool Open House– After 2 years, Canyon Meadows pool is reopen. From the pictures it looks much snazzier and it’s free from 11-2 with the open house.
Calgary Lawn Bowling Club is hosting free try it sessions for lawn bowling from 9:00-4:30. Anyone 8 and over can try and all you need are flat soled shoes.
East Village Junction– Do some shopping at Calgary’s first pop up container mall and check out an Elevated class from Philip Ndugga, one of Calgary’s top fitness trainers or try some swing dancing with Fly Right Swing.
Walk 150– Head out for a 2 hour walk with Calgary walk writer Lori Beattie, starting at the Central Library. While online registration is full you can still join in. Even if you’re a longtime Calgary resident, you’re sure to find some new views and corridors in the city while making some new friends.
City Chase Calgary– Find a friend and take part in an Amazing Race style event throughout Calgary. While online registration is closed you can still register in the morning. Whether you want to race competitively or just want to take it slow, you’re bound to be challenged and have fun.
Adventure Hunt Calgary– Adventure Hunt is also an Amazing Race style event that is more app dependent than City Chase so if you’re tech savvy and like taking instagram pictures, this may be your thing. The Hunt also requires a partner.
Park Run Calgary- If you love running, ever wanted to try running or want to motivate yourself to run than try out Park Run. There’s Park Runs all over the world every Saturday. They are all free and you will never be last because there is a tail volunteer. You are free to run or walk at your own speed, no medals or placements though you will get your time. Calgary’s Park Run takes place in beautiful Nose Hill and you can also grab a coffee with folks after. You will need to register if you have not attended one before.
JMS Yoga will be leading a free outdoor class every Saturday in Bridgeland. The weather is looking great to soak up some rays and stretch out.
Boating- While the weather looks like it would be perfect for rafting or kayaking the Bow, flow rate is high so the City is advising people to stay off. Instead consider renting a boat the the Glenmore Reservoir or Bowness Lagoon if you’re craving some water.
Whatever you do have fun and try to remember to make physical fitness a part of your life everyday!
