A Goofy Success

Over the month of April, the Schwartz/Reisman Centre and Prosserman JCC (located in Toronto) sparked a new fitness #goofyplankchallenge. While there was fantastic momentum circulating in Toronto and across LIV North’s managed facilities, many of the other JCC’s across North America took notice and joined in on the fun (California, New York, Florida, Louisiana, British Columbia and many others!). 

The challenge forced individuals and families to get creative and helped them stay active during an otherwise challenging time of being stuck at home in self-isolation. We witnessed Jenga Games, Chess Matches, Family pyramid, pet’s on display and many other goofy/creative ideas. To wrap up a successful challenge, the JCC’s in Toronto hosted an unforgettable Plank Party with over 250 people from across North America tuning in for a fun core-inspired workout on Zoom!

  • Over 500 between Instagram posts/stories as well as FacebBook posts
  • 250+ People attended the Live Plank Party, core inspired workout, on Zoom representing over 30 cities
  • The challenge helped engage our community to be creative and active
  • Had the likes of some fellow fitness favourites such as Marc Lebert, Peter Twist and Harley Pasternak joined in on the fun!

LIV North has been actively creating challenges for many of our communities across Canada to keep the same level of enthusiasm and creativity.

Don’t Get Caught With A Pool That Has Not Been “Summerized”

Pool Summerization:

It is the process of draining, disinfecting, cleaning, and filling your outdoor pool with fresh chlorinated water. The purpose is to prepare the pool for the summer season and remove the dirty standing water, debris and mould that forms over the winter. 

Local bylaws are strict when it comes to stagnant water and the fines outweigh the cost to drain, clean and fill your pool. 

HEALTH RISKS RELATED TO STAGNANT WATER:

  • A natural breeding ground that can lead to the spread of mosquito born illnesses including: West Nile virus. Dengue fever, Viral Encephalitis. 
  • Forms of Bacteria can develop causing multiple ailments including E.Coli, Dysentery or Cholera.
  • A bad odor creates annoyance
  • Looking at a dirty or infested area creates unwanted tension for those who pass by.

Generally, a facility or home caught with stagnant water will get a week’s notice prior to fines, so do not get caught at the last minute.

LIV North Pool Summerization package includes:

  • draining, cleaning, and refilling so water can circulate with proper chemical levels
  • a start up quantity of chemicals if none are on hand. 
  • a complementary inspection to ensure everything is in good order. 

Pool Opening:

Is the date that you are opening your pool for your local community to use. this is the date set to ensure everything is up and running and the pre-opening inspections are completed.

Your complete inspection service will be reported to you electronically and your pools inventory of equipment will be stored on our cloud-based operating system in case an emergency happens.

Note: It is not imperative to turn on the heaters and we can arrange a reduced maintenance schedule to ensure the water is properly maintained while your facility decides what the summer schedule, if any, will be. 

HOW TO GET Started:

If you are already contracted with LIV North, you are on our schedule and you only need to activate it by letting us know.

If you are not a pool customer, LIV North has a variety of Summerizing options to meet your requirements including

  • Summerize only

Fitness In The Palm Of Your Hand

 In 2019 the LIV X app was designed and implemented into LIV North’s managed facilities. This app is the main operating system for all management functions in the LIV North club facilities including PT, payments, scheduling, non-touch facility access, push notices and more. LIV North made a significant investment creating a digital platform to allow our programs to be used remotely by our corporate customers and fitness facility members. The app also has over 350 workout videos that are constantly being updated depending on usage patterns.

“Never did we anticipate that all the members we service would become remote. Fortunately, the LIV X app was in place in all our facilities across Canada.” states Lisa Kendall, Vice President, Amenities for LIV North.

In the last 4 weeks, since the start of this COVID-19 shut down the LIV X App has been used by more than 20,000 users. An amazing statistic since LIV X’s anticipated usage was an adjunct to our in-house programming. The LIV X app is being complemented by an almost full schedule of online and virtual classes being offered through our facility staff.  

Check out how easy it is to use the LIV X App. 

Another amazing statistic is that over 5,000 non members participated online over the last 4 weeks using a complimentary link to home videos.  As a courtesy, LIV North, in conjunction with our supplier MY123 have provided complimentary access to home exercise videos. This link contains 3 different series of professionally produced home exercise routines designed for the general population and active aging and a series of wellness classes.  All classes are being updated weekly.
