Our first two events, yoga in the park and zumba in Elyse Monk's amazing fitness studio were huge successes. Our last "Recharge with Andie" event will be a free boot camp class in Mount Royal park, offered by Lemieux training.

Here are the details:

  • Date: Tuesday, Sept. 27.
  • Time: 7:10 - 8:10 p.m. 
  • Location: Mount Royal Park - Beaver Lake Chalet entrance off the parking lot (2000 Chemin Remembrance, Montreal). We will be a big group, so we're easy to find. The class stays in one location, so everyone can leave their belongings at the meeting point.
  • Cost: Participation is completely free. We just ask that you RSVP (details below).
  • Fitness level: Open to all levels - everyone will be able to participate. We recommend that if anyone has any issues (injuries, or constant aches) that they address it to the trainer at the beginning of the Boot Camp, so they can find alternatives for that camper.
  • Instructor: Jonathan Lemieux, a certified fitness instructor and owner of Lemieux Fitness
  • What to bring: Running shoes, a bottle of water, a towel, a mat (if you don't like touching the grass) and a friend

For questions or to RSVP, please contact Andrea.Stanford by email.
