Whether the goal is a few pounds, toning or a larger transformation, Glenn Hascarl is hoping a new program at the Comox Community Centre will inspire individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The 40-session Summer Health Shake Up is an inclusive program that offers a combination of time in the fitness studio, time outside and sessions with a nutritionist, and a three-month pass for the gym.
“This is the first time (the class) is being offered, and it’s a good alternative to going to the gym, which can be intimidating,” explained Hascarl, a trainer at the community centre.
He added the end goal of the program, which begins June 10, is to complete a 10-km loop in Strathcona Provincial Park.
Hascarl said measurements will be taken at the start of the program to track participants’ success, but the focus will be on a healthy lifestyle approach.
“Two times a month we will meet with a nutritionist to talk about meal planning and to give up dates, ask questions and tweak plans,” he added.
The class also gives people a chance to see the variety of options at the facility, and Hascarl noted he will incorporate spin, TRX and Zumba.
