Commit to Fit exceeded expectations
On Thursday, February 25 Badlands Community Facility (BCF) Coordinator of Recreation Programs Jacy Calon spoke to The Mail about the Commit to Fit program that finished in January.
Calon explained, “One of our premises was to develop an interaction with our front line staff with the members coming through each day. This coincided nicely with The Drumhell
er Mail challenge Commit to Fit.” Calon continued, “The Commit to Fit was all about people challenging themselves through physical fitness and have fun doing it. To foster that relationship, we helped the members meet their goals, asking them how they were doing and checking in with them. We developed working relationships with some of the members. Our staff was there to encourage and support.”
BCF Acting Program Specialist Amber Leavitt said, “A lot of us got to know the people, from the first time they came in, when we helped develop their goals, to when they came in again. We engaged in conversations with them and started to get to know them better. I knew what their fitness goals were and helped make sure they were working towards them. People would come in and ask for me personally. One member had finally met their goal and was very excited to tell me all about it.”
Calon expressed, “People can expect Commit to Fit to happen again next year as this year was above and beyond our expectations.”
The Mail and BCF staff have already met to discuss the 2017 Commit to Fit challenge. Watch the paper for continued information.
“The Commit to Fit was all about people challenging themselves through physical fitness
