Commit to Fit returns for second year
The new year is here and it is time to Commit to Fit.
This is the second year that The Drumheller Mail has teamed up with the Badlands Community Facility and the Aquaplex to support residents who commit to a healthy lifestyle. So far, about 25 have signed up. And while Amber Leavitt, program specialist at the BCF, would have liked to see more registrations, she sees the value of the program. The main strength is tracking the workouts.
“It is important to pick a goal and then track it. Tracking it helps keep you accountable to the goal that you’ve picked so you can see what your progress is lie,” she said. “That is why Commit to Fit works because we have the tracking system at the BCF and the Aquaplex and that helps people to commit.”
The program is simple. Just sign up and let the BCF or Aquaplex know your goal. Their knowledgeable staff will be happy to consult to help you meet that goal, and every time you stop in it will be logged and you can monitor your progress.
If by the end of January, if you have met your goal, you will be entered into a draw for a three month BCF membership.
Leavitt says the program has made a difference to many who have undertaken the challenge.
“One participant was praising Commit to Fit last year until about May. He was coming in like clockwork every single day of the week, and the once it got nice out, he started doing stuff outside,” said Leavitt. “He would say the reason he was coming was because of Commit to Fit.”
