Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014, Studio IPF: Inner Pursuit Fitness hosts its annual Food Bank Class at the studio, 303B 13 St., Courtenay from 10-11 a.m., with an ‘80s-inspired workout.

IPF director Leanne Zdebiak-Eni, along with IPF instructors Jessica Wittman and Leanne Morrison, will be channelling Olivia Newton John, Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons, as they take you through a fun, high-energy workout, replete with vintage aerobics music and moves. Studio IPF holds an event every December to benefit the CV Food Bank.

“We try to make the food drive special because the CVFB has such a significant place in our community, we want to show our gratitude by celebrating what they do in the Comox Valley,” says Zdebiak-Eni.

“I’ll even be wearing an authentic ‘80s leopard print leotard given to me by one of my regular clients.”

Jeff Hampton, of the CVFB stresses that this time of year is ‘vital’ for the food bank. Donations now will help feed local families over the holidays at a time that can be very hard for those in need.

Admission is by a suggested $20 cash donation, and non-perishable food items are encouraged.

The best ‘80s outfit will receive a prize, and their will be a fantastic health and fitness gift basket raffled off.  For more info contact Studio IPF at 250-703-2673, or email info@studioipf.com. IPF is located at 303 B 13th Street, Courtenay.
