Bit of a crazy day today – exams were a bit of a mess this morning, so I ended up not being able to go to the track today. But I will be there tomorrow all day! Drop by if you want to watch some track and field!
There is a new GoodLife location opening today at Lansdowne Park. Landsdowne Park has been transformed into a pretty nice urban area in Ottawa. Obviously, the stadium is a big draw, but there are also new shops, restaurants and recreational areas in the area. GoodLife is the newest business to open up. Today at 4pm is the Grand Opening celebration with lots of special guests, including Silken Laumann and GoodLife CEO and founder, David Patchell-Evans. The club opens for workouts starting tomorrow, June 20th. I’m hoping to stop by next week for a workout. Just looking at the floorplan, the new Lansdowne Park location looks pretty sweet. There are tons of treadmills and other cardio equipment and a large space for weights. There is also a hot yoga room (YAY! Something new to try), massage chairs, and TRX available.
The new GoodLife location is a central location and is great for residents of the Glebe. But, the new location is also super close to the Rideau Canal path – why not make it a super workout and run/bike to the club rather than drive?
