Glow Fitness for Women is excited to launch a new Walking and Running club for women in Gimli this summer.
"You can start your morning halfway to 10,000 steps - all while enjoying lakeside scenery, fresh air, and new friends! We feel this is a great way to soak up the glorious Gimli surroundings and be active and healthy at the lake," says Glow owner Katie Hartle.
Participants can walk, power walk, gentle jog, or run, or mix it up.
The Walk/Run Club can accomodate all levels of women, and strollers are welcome.
A Glow Coach will lead the group, and provide advice on maintaining proper form and self-monitoring heart rate. The coach will lead the group through stretches at the end.
"We are excited to explore our community, and also to provide a safe way for women to walk or run early in the mornings." adds Hartle.
Drop-ins are welcome (for $5), and the Ladies Walk and Run club is included in the cost of membership for members of Glow Fitness for Women in either Gimli or Selkirk locations.
Women are invited to meet at Glow Fitness for Women (40 Centre Street) on Friday mornings just before 7 a.m. all summer long.
The group will leave Glow at 7 a.m.
Women are encouraged to attend on Fridays rain or shine, because there will be the option to either run in the rain or do a group workout inside Glow instead.
Glow Fitness is also putting on regular yoga classes all summer, including Sunrise Beach Yoga and the whimsically-named Nautical Yoga.
More information about the Walk and Run Club, yoga, and regular gym memberships is available on their website, glowfitnessforwomen.ca.
We are very excited to announce our first two yoga classes, set to come Gimli this summer.
Glow Yoga at Gimli takes inspiration from the lakeside charm of Gimli Beach.
We soak up as much of that vacay ambiance as we can and infuse it into each summer yoga class to craft a thoroughly enjoyable yoga experience for our members and drop in yoga guests.
Read on below to find out more about our first Gimli classes, which will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:45 a.m. - 7:45 a.m.

The Glow workout gives you a full strength workout, just like lifting weights, but without the weight. Glow's machines use a hydraulic resistance system that responds differently to each person who uses it. This makes it a safe workout for women of all ages and fitness levels.
