Canada's capital is hosting an exciting event that encourages everyone in the area to get moving and lead a healthy lifestyle. On June 16, Ottawa will host the National Capital Fitday, featuring many fun and informative activities, special guests and presentations to showcase the many opportunities for people of all ages to pursue sports, exercise and outdoor activities in the region.
Whether travellers are seasoned athletes or trying out a new active pursuit for the first time, Fitday will incorporate classes and demonstrations that cater to all levels and abilities. Held in Ottawa's new CE Centre, there will be plenty of space for participants to sample some state-of-the-art exercise equipment, learn new powerlifting techniques and find out about various sports like softball, basketball or even Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Vendors that promote the various activities will be available to answer questions about pursuing these things and incorporating them into a daily routine.
Guests will want to wear workout gear to attend the classes that will be going on during the event. Throughout the day, workshops on yoga, strength and cardio, kettle bells and pilates are available for the price of regular admission. This could be a good opportunity to try out a class for the first time in a relaxed and informative setting.
Not only will individuals be learning about physical fitness, there will also be areas to test beauty products, see healthy cooking presentations and find out about Ottawa's leading spa and massage businesses.
One of the celebrity appearances at the conference will be TV star Mario Lopez, who will share his own secrets to maintaining a fit and active lifestyle.
Those who want to attend can purchase a ticket through the event's website that is good for all the Fitday activities, and children under 12 years of age are free. All proceeds for ticket sales will go toward the Foundation for Greater Goals, which encourages local kids to reach their full potentials.
Travellers who love to move and take part in active events can head to Canada's capital this June. Participating in the National Capital Fitday can be an ideal addition to one's tours of Ottawa for a memorable time in this vibrant city.
