Events help us build community.
Would you like to get fitter and stronger before spring starts in earnest? We have four recorded 1-hour exercise sessions (functional strength training) from a GREAT online fitness teacher, Sue Q, to share with interested members (and friends and family members) via Zoom. There will be at least three Zoom meetings scheduled each week, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 am and likely Saturdays at 8:30. (At least one of these times has to work for you each week; that third time-and-day slot can be negotiated once we know who's interested.) At that time we will gather "live" from our homes and all follow the same recording.
Here is a quick sample from one of our recent online workouts. We hesitate to share samples because one of the beauties of these workouts is that Sue is so good at varying things that there are few repetitions ever. She is also very conscientious about doing a full body workout, and gives good suggestions for how to accommodate sore or injured knees, hips and shoulders.

I started Sue’s Zoom classes in November and am really enjoying them. She is an excellent teacher, giving us lots of variety and ensuring we are using good technique. I like that the classes are geared to more mature bodies but certainly do give us a good workout. And it is great to be able to do the classes at home.(Bonnie)
Sue is a wonderful fitness leader, always varying her zoom classes and challenging our capabilities. She encourages us and keeps safety in mind, giving us options to do the exercises safely. Sue rose to the occasion when the pandemic hit, and created her zoom classes with enthusiasm and energy, one very good result of the pandemic! (Jocelyn)
I have been doing Sue’s workouts for about 5 years. What I especially like is how varied each class is and how closely Sue monitors and corrects us. The sessions always include strength, flexibility and balance training. (Kay)
I always feel SO good afterwards, and I am definitely getting stronger. (Laurie).
Our first-in-five-years African Dinner is here, with lots of the good things that characterized our first several African Dinners and a few new things too. Find out all about it here, including how to order and pay for tickets: https://vg4a.ca/page-18106
