VON Guelph Wellington News:
By Kelly Gee
Our 50 class challenge continues until November 2019. If a person completes one class per week they will complete this challenge by November, if they exercise twice per week they will complete this challenge in 6 months, if they exercise 4 per week they will complete it in 3 months and if they exercise 5 times or more they have already completed this challenge. Congratulations to the following people that have completed the 50 class challenge since November: Molly, David, Doris, Elisabeth, Marjorie, Carlo, Dorothy, Ron, Frank and Shirley.
Remember that if someone has not been active in a while to start slowly with a gentle approach to exercising. If they start out too hard they may find it too difficult, one might be stiff and sore and might even injure themselves. If this happens it is unlikely that they will want to continue to exercise and very likely that the exercise program will be a very distant memory within a month’s time.
Through education, self-awareness and accountability one can help to build a defense against failure and ensure a rock steady platform for success for the clients we serve. From physical goals to social well-being. Let’s encourage all that we know to exercise! If people have not started exercising, encourage them to start today and spring 2019 into action.
