In March of 2020, fitness facilities across Alberta were temporarily shut down, including all fitness centres within commercial towers. At HSBC Place in Edmonton, LIV North Account Manager Jaclyn Neumann, quickly mobilized and within a few days of closure began offering a wide variety of live streamed and on-demand fitness classes, along with wellness challenges all designed to help support the tenants’ well-being during these stressful times. The fitness centre at HSBC Place is one many facilities managed by LIV North.
During the past 6 months, Jaclyn and the HSBC fitness centre members engaged in numerous activities together, creating an HSBC “virtual fitness community” utilizing LIV North’s digital platform, LIVx. Members appreciated the ease of use of our LIVx app to access classes and other wellness activities.
LIV North is proud to be partnered with Epic Investment Services in delivering innovative fitness & wellness programs to tenants and to cultivating healthy communities.

LIV North is proud of how our facility managers have responded since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Within a few days of all Client’s being required to shutdown fitness centres across the Country, LIV North staff began delivering their fitness & wellness programming remotely to our client’s members. In a time when everyone’s lives are disrupted, providing as much normality in our scheduling with the same friendly face and being able to bring a sense of community in a stressful time.
One corporate account, Rogers Communications, has always been deeply committed to keeping their employees as engaged and healthy as possible and during this time is no different. Since the shutdown of their corporate fitness centres, LIV North immediately started engaging remotely with members, signing up over 200 people to a challenge on the first day. Today nearly 2,000 employees are engaged with online and virtual fitness classes. These classes are not only being provided to members belonging to any of their corporate fitness facilities within the GTA and Montreal, but all employees. According to Lisa Kendall, VP, Amenities, LIV North “ the feedback from Rogers employees is inspiring and about ⅓ of the people enrolled are not regular members of a club.”
The Rogers Communications program is one of about 40 similar programs that are being performed daily in the homes of our employees. Once facility closures were announced, the LIV North team was communicating over the weekend with all facilities across Canada and by the following Monday had a plan put together to keep members connected.
The LIV North Amenities staff started to share ideas from the beginning of this pandemic and are now communicating online twice a week as a team of instructors to share ideas and successes. “LIV North has an amazing pool of talented instructors operating in a wide range of facilities across Canada, We are catering to a variety of needs and dealing with various types of communities daily with an amazing pool of instructors from across Canada.” Kendall states.
Not only has LIV North redeployed our programming but we have re-designed many programs so they can be offered as “family friendly”. For example, we have a family friendly Amazing Race challenge with Honda employees, afternoon stretch breaks are being enjoyed by all family members and our core conditioning programs are now being offered to varsity and high school athletes who are staying at home. Classes range from Stretch and tone, AtHome Boxercise and many more that are posted on our clients members schedule.
Other facilities are also engaged in providing programs for social connection across multiple social platforms. For example, Miles Nadel launched an online hockey league for members with an amazing response. All LIV North facilities are getting together and running a Goofy Plank Challenge #goofyplankchallenge This is run across Instagram with a target of 5000 people submitting entries showing themselves planking in a fun and creative way.
