With two classes a day, five days a week there’s always something to enjoy. In the morning is a fitness or movement class and in the afternoon you can take an art or cooking class or attend a lecture, music class or social. Think of it as a virtual community centre, you don’t have to pre-register for specific sessions, simply drop-in any time you want. Access is easy with a simple click of the mouse, all from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Excellent certified fitness and creative instructors helped us win “Gold winner of the 2021 Toronto Star’s Readers’ Choice for ‘Adult Activity Program.”
Classes like Pilates, Yoga and Interactive Museum Tours has engaged up 500+ monthly subscribers from across Canada and in the States.
More feedback includes:
“What a wonderful variety of programs! I have attended quite a few and loved them all. I am not a gym person, but I thought that Pilates, Yoga and Gentle Moves were fantastic! Every host has very unique approach which makes exercising not only useful, but also inviting and interesting.”

“The stretch and strength with Jill has made an amazing change in my mobility. “
“Before joining this group I was feeling so depressed for the isolation but after I started the classes I felt energized. The exercise classes are so wonderful but also I like very much the cooking and painting sessions!”

Exercise Is Medicine
In partnership with our long-standing member, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, CSEP, we were able to secure funding to assist with the dissemination of their newest publication, Exercise is Medicine. In the new year, all members will be receiving a copy of this resource. We will also provide you with links to access the Exercise is Medicine resources that CSEP has developed for medical professionals and allied health practitioners. These new resources will inform older adults about safe and successful engagement in physical activity.
Our project also includes the re-establishment of our Older Adult Advisory Committee and recruiting role models to assist us with the promotion of the benefits of an active lifestyle.
Watch your mail in 2022 for this new health promotion publication.
