Facts, Tips & Benefits

It is a frightening thought to know that physical inactivity is costing Canadian taxpayers approximately $6.8 billion dollars a year. On a positive note, getting moving and being active is associated with as much as a 30% reduction in all causes of mortality rates.

Exercise produces only great and positive side effects and helps prevent all kinds of disease. So come on, Burnaby... what are we waiting for... let’s get moving!
