The Nelson Nordic Ski Club is getting set to open for the season.

Find ways to exercise in and around Nelson

Your beliefs, reasons and rationale for physical activity determine your own level of participation.

Your beliefs, reasons and rationale for physical activity determine your own level of participation. You feel better after exercising, right? Do you really think it’s necessary though? Is your health good enough as it is? You look pretty good anyway. Can you afford it and is it a priority? Well, I promised last article that I would talk a little more about the active/healthy lifestyle choices we make, so before I tell you what’s happening in sports (that help your activity levels), here’s a little more food for thought.

Perhaps reasons for being active include more than just staying healthy. For many, the social aspect of participating with friends and family is as important as the activity itself. Making sure every minute of physical activity is something you enjoy would help your cause as well. Try something you enjoyed when you were younger or something you’ve always wanted to explore. In Nelson the choices are plentiful and appealing, and that matters because if you enjoy it, you’re more likely to continue.

Count and include everything as a chance for exercise. The provincial government slogan of yesteryear still makes a good point: Every move is a good move. So walk your dog, walk to work or school, clean the house (all family members)…and my favourite, park the car further away from the store or facility than necessary. I love the irony of trying to get the nearest parking spot to the gym or the ski lodge!

Also, never rule out a bit of friendly competition to motivate you. For some it can be the very incentive to begin and continue an activity. Talking of which….

 

 

The Nelson Nordic Ski Club is finishing up the details to be ready for the season soon to be upon us. The membership drive event continues on December 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and December 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Gericks Cycle & Ski on Baker Street. You can also pick up your passes that were purchased in October, register for Bunnies, BC Rabbits and TA Programs and have your membership photo taken. It is also the last opportunity to get your season pass sticker, otherwise a $5 fee is charged. Christmas passes may be purchased also at the event: 5 skis for the price of 4 adult @ $40 valid only during the two weeks of Christmas holidays… great stocking stuffers. If you are able to help out with this event email: info@nelsonnordicski.ca. Check out “conditions” page on our web site: nelsonnordicski.ca and watch the snow accumulate. For any inquires you can call 250-354-4299.
