In the Community with the Mobile Fitness Unit

adminBlog7 Comments

At World Health, we are committed to promoting the benefits of regular exercise and helping people achieve the results they desire. This extends outside of our gym walls and into the community at any chance we get.

That is why we created the Mobile Fitness Unit, a community program that brings some of our most popular group fitness classes to local Calgary schools.

Our fitness instructors are educated, energetic, and highly motivated individuals who act as positive role models for the students in our community. In order to promote a health and active lifestyle, we teach the benefits of exercise while having fun.

How our students and teachers feel about themselves and how they perform academically dictate, to a large degree, their future happiness and success. One of the keys to a fit mind is a fit body.

We create and maintain a fun, dynamic and welcoming environment that appeals to all ages and levels.

What We Teach:

Zumba

Get your butt and hips moving with the most popular fitness class in the world. Zumba® uses a mix of Latin and International music to create a dynamic, exciting, fun and effective cardio workout. Zumba® is suitable for all people, ages, and fitness levels.

Pound – Rockout. Workout.™

Pound is a full-body cardio jam session, combining easy-to-follow cardio moves with strength training and drumming. The workout fuses Pilates, isometric movements, plyometric and yoga-based poses. The class burns calories and strengthens and sculpts infrequently used muscles. Participants drum their way to a leaner physique, all while rocking out to your favourite music.

Bodyweight Boot Camp

Boot camp may have originally been a military term, but you won’t find any intimidation tactics here. Boot camp is suitable for all levels, and every participant works at their own pace. Sessions build strength and endurance and focus on functional movements like squats, push ups and sprints to improve daily routine.

What They Say:

“It was super fun! You didn’t have to be good at the exercises to have a great time. Also, it was awesome because everyone could participate.” – Grade 7 student

“We danced, so it was great exercise! We twisted and turned. We had lots of fun and they played good tunes that we can sing to.” – Grade 4 student

“I loved the Pound workout. The music had all the students and teachers singing and smiling. It was very inclusive and we did not have one student in the entire school having to sit or miss out on the activity; they also gave us suggestions on how to modify and adapt the activity to make Pound more inclusive to everyone. Students loved the noise and the ability to bang on the floor; doing things we usually don’t allow them to do. The World Health instructors were so passionate and energetic, which engaged all the students but it was also a great model for teachers, too. Pound is an exceptional workout, but the students are having so much fun they don’t notice the cardio or muscular strength training. Students left the gym after a thirty-minute session out of breath, sweating and eager to find out when they would get an opportunity to do it again.” – Jenna H, PE Teacher

We look forward to bringing this unique educational opportunity to as many Calgary schools as possible. If you’re interested in booking the Mobile Fitness Unit for your school, please email MFU@worldhealth.ca.
