Shortly after starting working at AtkinsRéalis , I was invited to join a group of people from all different departments that were working out in the building during lunchtime. It was a great idea, and every week we’d meet and work out together, we’d either do aerobics, or just do some stairs or go for walks together. Over time, our group had more and more participants and we started hiring professors from the outside to come give us Zumba, Yoga and Pilates classes, during lunchtime and after work hours. There’s no need to venture into rain or snow, the professors come to us! 

We have participated in many HSE Weeks and also did a few fundraisers for Centraide. In 2016, thanks to the support of our CEO, Neil Bruce, we were given a designated space in the building to do our classes, since we were having problems finding a room for our activities in the building. Then, in 2018, an even bigger space opened up in the building, which was fully renovated for us by the Building Services group! 

I’m proud to be a member of this group, to organize these classes to keep my colleagues healthy and energized, to help people prevent injuries, burnouts and depression, and just to feel good! 

I want to send a big THANK YOU to all the people that have helped to keep us going for these 10 years, all the way from Corporate and Building Services’ support, to everyone that comes to workout with us every week!
