Kent and Sylvia

September 2023

Meet Kent and Sylvia, our September member profile! You'll find Kent and Sylvia in the Field House at least three times a week, front and centre, in their favourite class—Fit for Life. For them, being healthy and active isn't just about moving your body, but also about the time spent being social with other members at the CGC. They both talk about the friends they have made here, and how much they enjoy their coffee and tea once their workout is complete for the day!
