Whether you are new to exercise or have just been away from it for awhile, the education lessons will remind you why physical activity is important for your health, and help you take the first steps to becoming more active.

The program is delivered in a workshop style with simple activities to complete as you work your way through the lessons.

The exercise videos will be available for you to follow along with at any time, and provide both standing and seated modifications for all physical abilities.

During the program, you will:

  • Learn strategies to help you stay safe and to decrease risk of injury during exercise
