We all know that Heart Fitness – exercise – is important for heart health. Studies have shown that cardiovascular activity strengthens the heart muscle yet it’s important to know how much cardio is right for you.
We are starting to hear more and more about the role friendships and happiness play in keeping a heart healthy. Recent studies have shown that people with a close group of friends are healthier than those without. Join friends and neighbours in our Healthy Hearts fitness program. Improve your fitness and make new friends.

Joyce Friesen is the Program Coordinator this year and the primary liaison with Country Club Management.
The Healthy Hearts Program does not offer any professional trainers or medical support personnel. Rather, it is simply a group of Country Club Communities Members gathering to participate in a common interest of fulfilling a regular exercise format.
It is the participants’ responsibility to ascertain, from their own personal physician, that this program is appropriate for them.
This activity is restricted to members of the Golf and Country Club [CCC]. Participants will be required to sign a waiver.
Visitors are welcomed, provided space is available, and they are invited and accompanied by a member of CCC.
