Testimonials

  • If it was not for OSTEOFIT class I would have difficulty with stairs and bending. Please let us keep our mobility by keeping our classes and saving Health Care Dollars.  Valerie Gramham
  • As I age a class tailored to stiff muscles is ideal. Also tips on daily exercise to protect the same muscles and bones is helpful.  These classes keep us limber and also exercise our minds.  Less visits to the doctor is always wanted.  Diana Mcloughlin
  • I had been coming here for the last 16 years. I really enjoy the group.  This fitness class is giving me more strength physically and mentally; being active is very important, your body needs movement.  This program helps me find more friends also.  Grace John
  • I have attended Osteo-fit for the past 15 years. I have found it helps me to keep active in spite of physical decline.  Another benefit is the social aspect.  I have made many friends, look forward to our times together.  Our instructor is “tops”, friendly but efficient and effective.  I encourage others to join such a program.  Darlene Manzer
  • I have been involved in Fitness/Wellness for four years. I have great confidence in our instructor.  She knows what we need, flexibility, balance and cardio.  My twice a week work out is keeping my 79 year old body in good shape.  Fellowship with my fellow exercisers is an added bonus.  Bill Hamilton
  •  I have been going to classes for over a year. I have noticed a big difference in my stability and mobility.  Also my overall strength is better.  Very good instructor. Diann Tejszelski
  • I jointed the fitness program several years ago when I realized that I was doing nothing to keep myself more healthy and fit. I enjoy it very much and have made many friends along the way.  Our instructor, Alvina Tyler is excellent, very caring, and explains how each exercise works to keep our joints and muscles in good working order, which makes it interesting too.  We all have a good time. L. Bjorklund
  • I will keep it up as long as possible. H. Kust
  • Best decision I have ever made. Shirley Hutchings
  • Best exercise for me. Best decision I ever made. Joan Marr
  • June 21, 2018 – We both find the program helpful to maintain balance, fitness and strength. To stay out of hospitals and prevent falls.  Ed and Sonja Zwick
  • June 25, 2018 – I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in 1997. With multiple fractures in my spine in 2002 I started a beginner class with LTL in Mission, BC and have been attending twice a week ever since.  Our fitness instructor was very good and now Alvina Tyler is a great instructor, too.  She is very caring.  I am very happy to know they are trained by the Women’s Health Centre and tested regularly.  I did have a total hip replacement two years ago but recovered very quickly.  I am sure the classes are why I am still walking and living a good life.  It means so much that this program is available.  Jackie Fisher
  • I was introduced to the Osteo class by a friend, Jackie Fisher. We usually attend the class together.  I enjoy the walk to and from the facility.  I also especially enjoy the instructor, Alvina Tyler.  I was in so much pain that I could not do all of the exercises at first.  Her classes have helped me, some days I am only able to go on Thursdays as I have other commitments on Tuesdays.  I especially enjoy nice days outside on the walkabout.  The games are also stimulating, i.e., quick reflex and fun!  I am also a polio survivor 1953 epidemic viz. career in Figure Skating…which helped me.  Velma Tyler Gaudet
  • 150 minute per week fitness challenge and twice weekly Osteofit 1 classes: Everyday living for me in Carrington House is an exercise class for with a left knee replacement, a worn out right knee and a frozen right shoulder, my mobility is vastly restricted, making any mobility doubly hard and longer to do.  Washing myself, dressing and undressing getting through the big door to my suite especially if I drop the key or the door opens too wide.  I have to get the walker thing through too.  Climbing in and out of vehicles with no running board or hand holds.  There I have to use my arms and body muscles to pull myself in and out when walking into a place with a slope to the sidewalk I have to hold the walker with the brakes or else it will get away on me.  All is a struggle and an exercise in itself.  One does not appreciate ones mobility until they lose it……..( re the contest) it was fun.  Irene Yewell (Age 94+)
