Feel the burn, feed the hungry

On Thanksgiving Monday, Chilliwack-based Ascend Fitness will host a “Turkey Burn Boot Camp” in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank.

On Thanksgiving Monday (Oct. 13), Chilliwack-based fitness studio, Ascend Fitness Inc. will host a “Turkey Burn Boot Camp” in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank.

The workout will be open to all Chilliwack residents as an opportunity to enjoy a great workout (and the benefits that come along with being fit) and to give back to the community.   Participants’ “ticket’ to enter will be a donation of a non-perishable food item.

The workout will take place at 106-45778 Gaetz St. at 10 a.m.  All fitness levels are welcome.

Thanksgiving marks the start of holiday parties, and for many, the start of a slippery slope of overeating and missed workouts.  The shorter days make it even more difficult to fit in a workout.  Tanja Shaw, owner of Ascend Fitness says, “We want to use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to keep fit with our community, while supporting a good cause”.

An Ascend Fitness Kinesiologist will take the class through a warm up, and full body workout including cardio, resistance training.  Shaw encourages all participants to do at their own pace and to enjoy moving their body “All our workouts can be modified for various fitness levels.  There’s never pressure to ‘keep up’.”

Shaw is on a mission to help improve the lives of Chilliwack residents through physical fitness and sound nutrition.   “Working out regularly may not be easy, but having a plan to follow, a group to workout with and some fun in the process definitely help,” says Shaw.
