Regular Weekly Programming
Due to government COVID-19 restrictions, our studio is currently closed. We hope that all our friends and clients are safe and healthy.
LifeFit Athletics is going LIVE ONLINE!
In our new reality of social distancing, LifeFit Athletics has been struggling with how to continue our mission of providing quality active programming for the youth in our community. It seems impossible when we’re not able to get together at the studio, in the gym, or even in the local parks. When so many are struggling with just how to cope with the essentials in this new situation, it seemed trivial to worry about kids taking a little break from being active.
But this break is starting to feel long. We’re hearing that kids are missing their extracurricular sports and activities. It’s important to be active but kids are missing seeing their friends, interacting with their coaches, and just being part of a larger group…all those great things that sport participation provides. Our counselors miss the kids too! So with that in mind, our counselors are preparing to go online to lead kids in active play and fitness classes… and to give parents a little break from home schooling too. There will be the regular youth fitness & active play classes plus some fun day camp type activities too. You have the peace of mind that these counselors are local upstanding accomplished athletes who you and your children already know. We feel good about offering something useful to the community until we can return to our normal programming.
Sessions are starting next Monday, April 20th. We’re aiming to have 3 daily live sessions at 10 am, 1 pm, and 6:30 pm, Monday to Friday. Current monthly membership holders will be able to participate in the online sessions plus have access to the private facebook group LifeFit Athletics ONLINE which features videos, info, and interactive posts. Non-members can subscribe for a month of full access for just $20. Email email@example.com for more info on how to get your child involved.
Please note that all ages are suggested ranges. Everyone’s development will be different and that is respected at LifeFit. If you or your child would like to try a class outside of the noted range, please speak to us.

Running. It’s the basis of pretty much all land based sport. Soccer, football, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, are all based on moving, and moving fast. In this focused program, athletes from all sports can learn how to improve their performance by improving their running form, power generation and biomechanics. Based on fundamental movement skills and taught by trained coaches, this session can be run either as a workshop specialized for your team or organization, or offered more generally to the community.
“LifeFit Athletics came to our Bantam Girls Basketball practices to give the players some training on how to improve their conditioning and develop speed. The trainers used a variety of warmup exercises, as well as drills involving sprinting, jumping, movement to build their bodies into machines. Laura and her team were very knowledgeable in explaining the drills and why they were doing certain movements. The girls thoroughly enjoyed their training and despite being very sore after their first session, the second one had them asking if they could do it again. We would definitely recommend LifeFit for team or individual training.” – Colin Jardine Brockville Blazers Major Bantam Girls Coach

“Just a note to say what fun and engaging activities Lifefit set up for our 7 year olds birthday party. LifeFit came equipped with a variety of energy expending and FUN games. We had a rowdy crew but Laura was able to keep the group in control and entertained all while keeping a ‘party’ atmosphere. Looking forward to having LifeFit at future parties. Thank you!! Kelly Wu.”
