Blakely Wellness Webinar: It’s Your Move

Today, there is an ever-increasing body of evidence demonstrating that physical activity is not only important to enhancing lifespan and overall wellness, but also preventing many chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, anxiety and depression.  

Join us for our free wellness webinar: It’s Your Move on Wednesday, May 27th at noon and learn from our physical rehabilitation experts about why exercise is critical, both as a strategy and a tool to promote your health and well-being. Our panelists will then dive into the impact of exercise on chronic conditions and explain how exercise can help, for instance, prevent cancer, help tolerate treatments and lessen fatigue. 

Finally, while our gyms and recreational facilities remained closed, you can learn to create a personalized exercise plan in your home and neighbourhood for yourself, and your family.
