Canmore, Alberta – Are you looking for a unique holiday gift idea this year? If yes, then offer the gift of health, wellness and fun by signing up a girl friend to the 2011 Fast and Female Women’s New Year Fit-Fest to be held on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at Canmore’s (AB) Athletic Evolution Gym.
“Last year’s event was a tremendous success,” said Chandra Crawford, Fast and Female Founder, President and 2006 Olympic gold medallist. “We are happy to repeat again in 2011 and hope daughters, sisters, moms, grandmas, aunts and girl friends will take advantage of this unique day to start the New Year like champs!”
Intended for female participants 16 years old and up, the “fun”-draising event will feature continuous fitness stations (dancing, kickboxing, spinning, and pump classes), a stretching segment, a short wellness information segment and a New Year’s toast. Each event participant will also go home with a bag of goodies valued at more than $45.
To accommodate as many participants as possible, the 2011 Women’s New Year Fit-Fest is split into two sessions with 50 lucky female fitness enthusiasts taking part in the morning training (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and another 50 participants joining the afternoon training (1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.).
Canmore’s Athletic Evolution gym is generously donating the space usage and providing all instructors for this event meaning that all proceeds from the event will go directly towards supporting Fast and Female’s ambitious plans for 2011 of reaching more than 1,400 girls ages 9 to 19 all across Canada and the United States.
Founded in 2005, Fast and Female is a non-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment through sport of young women. By partnering with inspiring female Olympians, Fast and Female travels across North-America to host day camps for girls ages 9 to 19.
