What are you doing on June 1st?

Join us on National Health and Fitness Day and Get Up, Get Out, and Get Active!

Marcia Culham leading Essentics class for Essentics instructors in Edmonton May 2019
To mark this year’s National Health and Fitness Day, an initiative to make Canada the Fittest Nation on Earth, Vital 1 Fitness is hosting a free Essentrics class, a full-body no impact workout with dynamic strengthening and stretching exercises.

Each workout focuses on increasing mobility, flexibility and strength, relieving tension in muscles, easing chronic aches, pains and joint stiffness, and improving posture. And it’s fun!

If you’re having fun, it’s not exercise.

After a 10 minute introduction, I will instruct you through a 45-minute lovely no impact Essentrics class. Feel the energizing and therapeutic benefits of the fluid, rotational movements that promote strength and flexibility.

Be challenged, or do it in a more gentle relaxed manner. Either way you will feel so much better at the end.

Come as you are. All you need to bring is an exercise mat and water bottle.

Space is limited so please register at or by calling me at 403-208-3307. Preregistration is required to hold your spot. Let’s fill the gym!!

About the author: Marcia

As a healthy 63 year old, my wish for all of us is to age well by moving more. Living an active lifestyle helps you remain agile. Helping you to be an “active ager” and striving to feel better in your body is why is started VITAL 1 FITNESS. Now in my 43rd year of nursing, having worked in many areas from the Emergency department to an outpatient cancer treatment center, I have broadened my aspirations by teaching Essentrics™ classes. It is incredibly gratifying to hear the improvements each participant has experienced in flexibility, pain relief and wellbeing. Some of my certifications and awards include: Certified Essentrics™ Instructor (Level 4 Honours); Myeloma Canada Nurse of the Year, 2015; DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses nominee, 2014 and 2015; Nursing Advisory Board Panelist, 2011, 2013 and 2014; Research Nurse of the Year Tom Baker Cancer Center, 2006.
