GoodLife Fitness encourages Teens coast-to-coast to get active with free membership

Now in its sixth year the Teen Fitness Program is helping over 70,000 teens get fit

[London, ON]— This summer marks the sixth annual free Teen Fitness program hosted 
by GoodLife Fitness. The program, running from July 4 - September 4, offers youth
 ages 12-17 complimentary access to GoodLife Fitness clubs coast-to-coast.

“Our purpose is to provide all Canadians with the opportunity to live a fit and healthy
 good life and we know the importance of starting these habits at a young age,”
 said Founder and CEO, David ‘Patch’ Patchell-Evans. “The growth of the 
Teen Fitness Program has been fantastic over the past six summers. 
 Last year we had tremendous success with 70,000 teens registering in the program.”

According to ParticipACTION youth ages 12-17 should accumulate at 
least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity daily.

 improve self-esteem and confidence, and maintain a healthy body weight 
and so much more.

“Each and every year we watch the amazing successes of Teen Fitness Program,”
 continued Patch. “These youth are taking it upon themselves to make
 fitness a priority and live a fit and healthy good life. We see them 
become passionate about taking care of themselves – feeling healthier,
 stronger and more confident. It’s a remarkable thing to witness!”
