Lacombe Fitness Center Celebrates One Year Anniversary
In an effort to give back and say thanks to the community for an excellent year, the popular Lacombe fitness center, Fit Body Boot Camp, will celebrate its one year anniversary by hosting a family fun charity event on Saturday, September 7th starting at 11am until 2pm at its boot camp location found at 101-3402 Hwy 12, Lacombe, AB T4L 1A7.
Activities for the one year anniversary celebration include giveaways, games, and food for everyone who attends. Local businesses are also slated to attend and raffle off prizes. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Youth Centre of Lacombe, a charity whose mission is to provide support and services to Lacombe's youth.
Lacombe Fit Body Boot Camp first opened its doors in September of last year and has been welcomed by the community ever since. Owner and operator of the Lacombe gym, fitness expert Denise Harty says, "Opening a facility where I could share my passion for fitness and nutrition was a goal I had for many years. I opened Lacombe Fit Body Boot Camp one year ago in hopes to create a community where we can inspire and motivate each other to reach our highest potential. I have made it my mission to help 3,000 local Lacombe residents get active. I can proudly say one year later we are changing lives and having a ton of fun in the process."
Harty admits that she got into personal training because the hectic family life she was leading in her 20's made it impossible for her to lose the "baby weight' in the years that followed her pregnancy. She says, "I tried many different forms of exercise in an attempt to regain my self confidence, but I never achieved results that were satisfactory. In fact, the experience left me feeling even more frustrated that despite my efforts I was still not as healthy as I desired."
