Sooke Biz Net Inaugural Event – Thursday

Are you in business in the Sooke region? The newly formed Sooke Biz Net business networking group is hosting its inaugural event tomorrow night, Thursday, June 25th.

The idea behind Sooke Biz Net is that it will be different from other business networking groups. Gone is the exclusivity and structured format. We’ve thrown the traditional out the window and have created a made-in-Sooke solution that’s based on monthly networking events, with featured speakers and presenters. You’ll learn something at the event that you can use immediately to help run your business or expand your reach. The focus is on fun, and you’ll need to expect the unexpected!

Tomorrow night’s event will be held at Sooke Ocean Resort, 6669 Horne Road, from 5:30 until 7:30. Tickets to the event are only $20 and that covers wine and fabulous food by Kari Osselton of Sushi on the Sea/Souki Sushi.

The theme for the evening is Communication This Moment! I will be the featured speaker for the evening, presenting Twitter in Ten Minutes, a short overview of one of the most powerful networking and communications tools since the advent of the Internet. The featured technology for the evening will be Skype, and Wendy Ashbee will speak about Send Out Cards.

There will also be prizes courtesy of Bombora Gifts and Sooke Fine Art Gallery, and the grand prize of a full-page colour ad for your business in the RV Times (a $2000 value).

Don’t miss this fun event. Come mix, mingle, network, learn and most of all, have fun!

Contact me at 250-885-012, fill in my contact form, or email tim@timayres.ca for tickets.

I hope to see you there!

Gym in Sooke – The Fresh Fitness Company

Perhaps a little late for a New Year’s resolution, but it’s never too late to begin to change your lifestyle to achieve greater health and fitness.

Have you joined other fitness facilities with good intentions to keep up a regular workout, and then fallen off the wagon into a rut? Do you dread going to the gym, running on a treadmill and doing the same, boring routines every time you go? You’re not alone, and that’s why you should check out The Fresh Fitness Company, a gym in Sooke owned and operated by Kristen Lindal.

Fresh Fitness is different. There are no weight machines. There are very few free weights, even. No treadmills, no stair climbers, and no elliptical trainers. Fresh Fitness in Sooke is a class-based fitness facility, with qualified instructors leading groups in various forms of exercise, motivating and coaching along the way. Instead of paying your monthly fees and then off you go on your own, Kristen’s company takes a fresh approach in leading you to your fitness goals.

My fiancee joined Fresh Fitness over a year ago, and she still goes, five days a week. She’s the first one to admit that she’s failed to keep up the routine in the past with other gyms. The difference? Variety. Kristen and her professional instructors host many different types of fitness classes that appeal to a broad variety of people. Monday might be a spinning class, Tuesday might be a cardio dance class. On Wednesday, muscle tone is the focus in a body shaping class. The end result are that members of Fresh Fitness want to go back to do more classes, resulting in a full-body workout over the course of a week.

The Fresh Fitness Company also offers training and support for runners; Marg and I were a part of their Victoria 1/2 Marathon running group last year. They also train for the TC10K and the Run for the Cure.

Is The Fresh Fitness Company a ladies-only facility? No, they have quite a few men as members, and I have done classes there on a drop-in basis too.

From its humble beginnings in owner Kristen Lindal’s Whiffen Spit home, Fresh Fitness has a permanent home in Sooke’s Evergreen Centre (beside the BC Liquor Store). You can reach Fresh Fitness at 250-642-2377.

Here are a couple of videos of their classes (Click through if you’re reading this through a feed reader or e-mail):
