The Active Living Exercise Program (ALEP) is a free program that runs at the Canmore General Hospital and at Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre to teach you how to exercise safely and efficiently, keeping in mind your personal goals. The program is 8-12 weeks in length.
The program is coordinated by an Active Living Consultants who have a minimum Bachelor's Degree in an exercise related field, plus further specialization in promoting healthy lifestyles and preventing/managing chronic conditions.
If you are at risk for, or already have, a stable, chronic condition, or if you have a stable or low risk cardiac condition and need to monitor vital signs while exercising, ALEP may be the program for you. The Active Living Consultant will instruct you on safe and effective techniques including strength, endurance, balance and flexibility exercises. Each session lasts for about one hour.
