LIV North Fitness Management team programs monthly challenges to encourage members of their projects to get active, eat healthy and maintain a well rounded lifestyle. While typical challenges – such as a step challenge or healthy eating challenge gain interest of some employees, it has been proving true that gamification of certain challenges brings higher usage and engagement.
Coming in November, members of LIVNorth projects can get excited to partake in Rollvember! Rollvember will be offered in a virtual and on-site format for employees who may be still working in a hybrid work environment post Covid.
Rollvember will encourage members to utilize the fitness facility and/or participate in Live Fitness Classes by allowing 1 roll of the dice for each visit. The goal of the challenge is to collect as many Stars as possible during the month of November. Stars are collected by moving through the gameboard. The more often an employee partakes in an activity in the fitness facility or virtually, the higher chance they have of collecting the most stars!
We are excited to see the participation rates of multiple projects that will utilize the program – Rollvember.
Welcome to the Carnival! At HSBC Place and 103 Street Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, onsite Manager – Jaclyn Neumann and Fitness Coordinator – Lisa Seidelmann brought a Carnival to the Fitness Centre this month with great success.
Tenants were invited to partake in Carnival themed games to challenge them in a variety of fitness related activities and win prizes. Some of the games included: a Deadhang, which challenges grip strength, Limbo, which challenges back and hip mobility and a fan favorite of spin the wheel which provided prizes or different exercises to try. The Carnival encouraged tenants of the building who don’t normally utilize the Fitness Centre to come in and try a few exercises out as well as meet the onsite staff.
These types of events provide opportunities for individuals who may be nervous to enter a gym setting, to experience the community of a fitness centre and meet welcoming staff which can help break down barriers to exercise. Employees who have access to onsite fitness centres and wellness programs tend to have a much higher level or productivity, higher quality of work and take less sick days.
The carnival was great fun, I appreciate the effort you guys put into making the event so engaging!”

LIV North would like to give a big shout out to our summer pool staff and our experienced renovation team who have worked tirelessly to open up our customer’s outdoor pools this year.
While we are well equipped with supplies and products needed to serve our customers, staffing shortages still remains an issue as it continues to plague the entire industry across North America. Our dedicated scheduling and staffing teams have continued to work hard and creatively develop new models to meet our customers’ needs and enabling residents to enjoy their pools this summer.
We anticipate that lifeguard staffing will continue to be an ongoing challenge throughout the seasonal industry and, while we will continue to work with all our customers diligently to provide needed staff, another viable option is to consider “right sizing” your large outdoor pool with the Myrtha Pool in a Pool system so that staffing is not required. In addition to solving staffing challenges, the Myrtha pool system enhances your amenity with a modern, new sleek look. Check out a sampling of pools below.
Contact email@example.com for information on long term solutions for your seasonal pool.
The Myrtha pool installed at the Aquabella at Bayside is even more stunning than was depicted in the original renderings of the building and could be one of the nicest pool decks on Toronto’s waterfront.
The Aquabella pool is the first Myrtha Pool system completed by LIV North Aquatics in the GTA and now that the summer warmth has arrived, this 7th floor outdoor pool is looking brilliant with unmatched views, a well protected patio and lots of sunlight.
When the pool arrived in a container in late fall it was quickly and easily transported up the elevators and placed on the 7th floor. Installation began with our trained technicians without interrupting the surrounding construction. Main assembly finished off for the winter in December prior to the snow falling. Once the good weather came this spring, the finishing touches were completed to the pool and the surrounding area in time for summer.
Special features to this pool are:
Hidden Edge Filtration system.
Side wall finish to match the patio tiles
A double layered soft bottom for added comfort
A guaranteed leak proofing system
Myrtha Pool’s are ideally suited for all elevated decks and high-rise buildings because they have:
Myrtha’s guaranteed 2-layered leak proof system
Myrtha’s Single Source 25-year warranty on the system and 10-year warranty on the finishes
A Lightweight system that is less than 20% the weight of concrete, and less than 50% the weight of traditional stainless steel pools
Dramatically reduced installation period, without the need for cranes or disruptions on site
Myrtha offers a highly flexible planning and design alternatives that have no limits
Customization of finishes, edges, and filtration systems
Sustainability – all Myrtha products are valid for contributing to LEEDS
Engineered to manage the acoustical performance and reduce vibration related to the pool.
Experience – 50+ Years, over 18,000 installations in 72 Countries
Aquabella at Bayside Condominium also has an amazing fitness room designed and installed by LIV North Fitness Division last year.
