Town of Newmarket residents we want you to join in on the fun!
Post your videos and photos on social media and show us how you get your 150 minutes of fitness a week!
In honour of Canada 150 and the Magna Fitness Centre, The Town of Newmarket has launched a fitness social media campaign; the "#Newmarketfit150 "How Do You Get Yours".
This fun and educational social media campaign highlights all the health benefits of doing 150 minutes a week of moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity, in bouts of 10 minutes or more.
This program leverages the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for adults aged 18 – 64 years old, as researched and outlined by ParticipACTION Canada and the Gold Standard in Exercise Science and Personal Training Guidelines.
How to participate:
1. Just Do It! Join in on the fun and let's see who really walks their talk in fitness, fun and recreation! Next time you're going for a jog, or on the elliptical at the Fitness Centre, hitting the ice with your buddies or sweating your way through Yogalates, take a quick video showing how you get your 150 Minutes of fitness a week!
2. Upload & Tag! Once you have your video, head on over to your social media channels (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) and tag @TownofNewmarket and include the hashtag #Newmarketfit150 so we can see who's doing what and help us build momentum for the program community wide. Hope to see your videos soon! (PS – for those of you who are camera shy – we don't have to see you sweating it out – shoes or action shots are just fine too!
3. Check In & Comment – Be sure to check back often to see who's the fittest of the fit or what everyone's up to in their spare time! Nothing like creeping your co-workers and friends or challenging family members to see what everyone is doing to keep themselves healthy, well and strong!
