Busy schedule? Want to get in shape but have no clue where to start? Feel intimidated when you show up to a gym? If you answered yes to any of those questions then you might want to take a closer look at Fit Body Boot Camp. I know what you’re thinking, the words “boot camp” sound a bit too grueling and intense for your liking… well the good news is they’re just that; words.

What is Fit Body Boot Camp you might ask? FBBC for short is a brand new fitness center that opened in D.D.O. (on Tecumseh right beside WIC). They specialize in intense 30 minute “boot camp style” workouts that help you lose fat and tone your body. Yes, only 30 minutes. These workouts involve absolutely no heavy equipment or machinery. There’s slam balls, battle ropes, resistance bands; all the fun stuff that’ll help improve your day to day life with minimal risk of injury. They have morning, afternoon, and evening sessions to fit everyone’s needs. Their goal is to make working out fun and accessible for everyone no matter their fitness level or experience. All their sessions are ran by extremely knowledgeable and motivating coaches who take a lot of care in helping their members achieve their goals.

With so many gyms out there what makes FBBC really stand out? Well to begin with, the second you walk in you realize you’re not just another client but part of a community. They place a lot of emphasis on eating and living healthier and offer nutritional consultations as part of their memberships. Their coaches take the time to sit down with you, discuss your goals and work with you to set out a plan to achieve them. Finally, the workouts themselves are unique in that they’re different everyday and are personalized. By them being different everyday you won’t find yourself getting bored going through the same motions over and over. As for the second part, personalized? Yes, despite being in a group, the coaches will modify all the exercises to every member working out to suit their specific fitness level. That way you won’t ever feel the need to “catch up” with everyone else and can go at your own pace.

The folks at FBBC are so convinced that you’ll enjoy being part of their family that they offer a free week trial to everyone new. Might as well give it a shot, what do you have to lose besides a few pounds?

All winter long, children aged 5 to 8 will be able to have lots of fun while learning how to snowboard for free in Centennial Park in Dollard-des-Ormeaux. This initiative of the Association des stations de ski du Québec (ASSQ—Quebec Ski Area Association), adored by children and parents alike, is offered every Saturday and Sunday until March 11. Guided by dynamic instructors, children will learn how to snowboard step by step in an environment specifically designed for learning.

 

This is a free introduction session with dynamic ski and snowboard leaders, dedicated to children from 5 to 8 years old, where full equipment is provided (skis, boots and helmets). Children learn the different stages of skiing or snowboarding, make their first turns, and experience the joy of sliding, in an environment designed for learning. Each participant receives a “Mysnow Experience Package” for a free mountain initiation. The Mysnow Experience programs take place on weekends for the general public, in one of these urban sites developed by the ASSQ:

 

LAVAL at Centre de la nature from January 6 to March 11, 2018 : ski and snowboard

 

DOLLARD-DES-ORMEAUX at Centennial Park  from January 6 to March 11, 2018 : snowboard only
Saturday and Sunday

 

The accessories and colourful décor will pique their curiosity and create a pleasant atmosphere. In addition, parents will be able to see the pride and smiles on their children’s faces. During this initiation of about one hour, all equipment, including the helmet, is provided. For opening hours, visit www.mysnow.ski

These sessions are offered  every Saturday and Sunday from 10AM to 3PM.

The initiation can continue on the slopes. With their My Snow Experience initiation, children will receive a My Snow Experience initiation package for free. With this package, children will have the opportunity to take a skiing or snowboarding initiation course directly on a mountain. Guided by qualified instructors, they will discover the pleasure of skiing or snowboarding on a real mountain. With the activation code indicated on the ski ticket you receive during the initiation, you will be able to make your reservation online with a participating ski area.

 

One of our Mommy fans has shared this info with us along with some photos of her experience with her child trying out this super fun FREE activity. Be sure to check it out and head over to Centennial park in DDO till March 11.

 

 

Initiation Day, on February 11, 2018

To pursue the joys of winter by introducing children to skiing or snowboarding, more than 40 ski resorts in Quebec offer a day where initiation lessons are completely free for 5 to 8 year olds, including equipment and helmet. This is another opportunity to introduce toddlers. Registration required at least 36 hours in advance at www.initiation.maneige.ski.
