Get Out and Get Active with Alberta Heartland PCN

2014 04 15 get out get active launchThe city will launch the Get Out Get Active campaign on Monday, April 27. File photo

Alberta Heartland Primary Care Network and nine Edmonton and area Primary Care Networks encourage their patients to Get Out and Get Active from April 27 to June 7. Get out and Get Active is a six week online program for all ages which keeps track of participants' physical fitness activities (walking, running) and converts them into steps to go on a virtual African safari! Participation is easy and free, and there are lots of great prizes to win.



Every person who registers will be eligible for the 2015 Get Out and Get Active Grand Prize of an African themed gift pack!! You do not have to be attached to a physician with a PCN to participate, anyone who wants to get more active can join.


Participants are encouraged to do 10,000 steps a day, or the equivalent by doing other activities such as biking, swimming, or even gardening. They can record the time they spent on an activity and enter it into the online program. The program then translates the time into steps that are used to go on your virtual Safari.


It is easier for me, as well as anyone with mobility issues, to get out and get active in the spring/summer months without all the snow. It’s a bonus that all of the snow has dried up fairly quickly this year in my opinion. There is a walking path behind my house and last year was the first time since I moved here that I decided to wheel along the path to see where it goes.


Participants are welcome to challenge coworkers, friends, and family to join the Get Out and Get Active movement to increase motivation. Each participating PCN will organize activities with community recreation facilities to motivate participants. In Fort Saskatchewan, the Alberta heartland PCN is kicking off the campaign by organizing a friendly walk around town on Monday, April 27 at 12:30 PM to get everyone in the mood to Get Out and Get Active. For more information, visit GetOutGetActivePCN.com.

Take the 30 Day Challenge

2015  04 24 yoga challenge


"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self"-The Bhagavad Gita

The girls of Mix 107.9 and fortsaskonline.com are about to set off on a yoga journey of their own. We will be joining many other participants on the 30 Day Yoga challenge at Pure Yoga located at 9701 90 Street. The challenge is to do 30 classes of yoga in 30 days. There will be charts up in the studio to track the progress of each yogi that participates, with gift bags and bragging rights waiting for us on day 30!

Now, before you become overly impressed, let us assure you that we are NOT yoga experts. Downward dog, sun salutations and cobra have been attempted by our bodies in the past, but never more than once or twice a week. And yet we could not wait to sign up for this challenge! I have heard many people say "If it doesn't challenge you it doesn't change you" (Fred Devito), and we are very anxious to see the changes that take place over the next 30 days. Our minds, bodies and souls will be challenged and we are at the ready!!!

We will be updating our blog regularly about our “journey” on the 30 day yoga challenge and we would also like to hear about your experience. Please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
Wish us luck!!
