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!”
