Group Power- Tues/Thurs @ 6:00am with Ruhee/Rachel, Wed/Fri @ 12:00pm with Brigitte

Group Power is the most fun and innovative way to strength train!

Shawnessy YMCA Grade 6 NSTEP Healthy Eating workshop.

With the cold weather setting in, some of our Grade 6 members took part in a healthy eating workshop facilit20150108_173029ated by NSTEP at the Shawnessy YMCA on Thursday January 8th 2015. It was the first workshop of the New Year and it was a great success.

In total twelve grade 6 members took part in making some healthy pumpkin spice muffins. They had the opportunity to ty out their measuring skills, work as a team, and of course they each got to eat the muffins in the end also!

This workshop would not have been possible without the support from the Flames Foundation For Life and NSTEP health eating.

If you are interested in finding out more about Grade 6 Membership activities, please contact your local branch.
