Through community involvement, lead by the Northern Community School Recreation Coordinator and Recreation steering committee the program has already developed a reputation within the community as the place to go to get fit and stay healthy.  The program would like to continue the community connection and train volunteers to be coaches.  The club promotes healthy living and positive lifestyle choices which have helped create strong relationships with at risk youth and community members.  Through continued participation by RCMP, Education staff, Health staff, community and youth the club will become a regularly attended venue for recreation and fitness.  The club will be a place to develop weight loss programs, fitness programs, train for competitions and host competitions.  It will keep at risk youth involved through unique recreation activities such as heart rate monitoring, cardio, weight training, boxing exercises and competition.
