Women’s Health and Well-Being Hub Program (Zumba & Aerobics)

The Women’s Health and Well-being Hub is one of our most popular healthy living programs. Women from different ethno-cultural backgrounds attend this affordable and convenient active living program on weekly basis. Before it was delivered from the Mississauga Valley Community Centre then moved to the Frank McKechnie Community Centre.  It offeres very exciting, fun-filled Zumba and Aerobics sessions for women and girls of different ethno-cultural communities. It aims to motivate immigrant women to embrace healthy lifestyle, consisting of both physical exercise and healthy eating.

Women greatly enjoy this program and often refer their friends and families to join and obtain the benefits. Hundreds of women and girls are engaged in this program over the course of the year. It also enhance participants’ understanding of healthy eating through nutritional workshops and cooking demonstrations following the exercise session. Furthermore, the program generate a place for women to meet other women; giving them the opportunity to expand their social network.
