What impact has Go Active had on you and your families lives? Cheryl and Go Active introduced us to Standup Paddleboarding.  When I was younger, I canoe camped every summer with my grandparents and love being on the water. I love that my girls are now seeing the joy of paddling. We now own 3 paddle boards so this summer, the girls and I can all be out together (the youngest and I can still share!). We also have tried Parentfit and Snowfit classes this winter and I love that my children can enjoy fitness activities with us.  My eldest came to Snowfit and enjoyed every minute, challenging herself and inspiring me at the same time.

What advice would you give to others that may be nervous about trying any of the Go Active programs?  Go for it!  Remember that laughter is great for the soul as well so when you can’t quite coordinate yourself, laugh.  Open new doors and try new things.
