Edmonton is an active city that sponsors countless community fitness programs.
- A Big Giant Hippie Sport - Disa Brownfield
It’s a good way to meet people. You don’t socialize just with your team. You talk to the person who’s marking you. That’s completely not normal in other sports.
- First Canadian Thanksgiving - Travis Groom
Everyone had the same idea that no-one should spend Thanksgiving alone. To my surprise, in support of me being American, they even offered to throw an American Thanksgiving in November.
- Half a Lion - Ian Meier
When I was still taking kung fu, I had the opportunity to take part in Edmonton’s Chinese New Year celebrations. The community all comes out and the streets are just filled with people.
- Keeping Busy in Edmonton - Andrea Ryan
I have known Edmonton my whole life. I was born here, I attended university here, I got married here. During this time, I have lived both in Edmonton and in its surrounding communities, and I love it.
- Natural Bodybuilding - Aman Takhar
The event was exciting, very nerve-wracking. The training itself up to the competition is quite intense. It takes a lot out of a person. It involves a strict diet and a rigorous workout schedule.
- Paralympian - Sonny Davis
I live a “walk and roll” lifestyle. Some days I feel good to walk and others I’ll take to the chair, ergo: “Sonny and Chair.” Sorry, bad wheelchair joke.
- Run! - Doreen Ryan
If I have to I’ll walk...but my pride won’t allow me to do that. I’m terrible. I’m still competitive with myself. Oh yeah, I’ll just hold that torch up like it’s nothing. I know I’ll get emotional. It has such meaning to me. I’m getting teary just thinking about it.
- Running Through the River Valley - Victoria Elliott
The sun is a crimson promise on the horizon as we set off on our jog through the River Valley. I hate running, but I love cheesecake. I need to do one to have the other.
- Stories From The Bench - Gord Sheppard
The guys took care of my car and took me to the hospital and took care of that stretch of things. They’d been debating which hospital was the best to go to while I was still on the ice. There was a familiarity to it.
- Two-Wheeled Adventures - Sarah Chan
My bicycle has given me a new lease on life in Edmonton now that I leave the car key at home when I go out to visit my favourite haunts.
- Where Everybody Knows Your Name - Janet LeBlanc
I grew up in the neighbourhood with Daryl Katz, went to the same school and played tennis together at our community courts.
- Dreaming Big - Sheila O'Kelly
Edmonton has been good to me. I never set out trying to figure out what I was going to do when I grew up and it was through volunteerism in the community that I’ve ended up traveling the world, really.
- Exit to Edmonton - Chris Tse
Meet an entrepreneur who found success in Edmonton with a holistic fitness studio.
