Thomas and Clarissa Lehmann started Ponoka Fit Club last year to get people healthy and strong through a fitness program.

A regular workout routine promotes a healthy lifestyle and healthy individuals.

The goal of fitness buffs Thomas and Clarissa Lehmann is to get people fit and healthy. To tackle this the Lehmann’s started Ponoka Fit Club last year and they have been coaching exercise buffs every Wednesday at the Word of Life Church.

The Lehmanns are coaches with a home fitness program called Team Beachbody, which became available in Canada only last year.

“We were determined to be in good shape,” says Mrs. Lehmann.

She is a holistic nutritionist and Mr. Lehmann is a paramedic and they both have dealt with people who have health issues because of a lifestyle choice. Mrs. Lehmann feels everybody has the choice to eat and exercise but they can also choose to eat unhealthy foods. She believes with better knowledge people can make informed decisions to stay healthy.

The Beachbody program is something both have benefitted from.

“It provides the tools, it provides the education and it provides the support,” explained Mr. Lehmann.

The fit club is free to participants with the option to buy supplements and meal replacement products. Competitions for those losing weight are also available with cash prizes. Beachbody awards a $500 prize every day, a $1,000 prize every month, a quarterly prize of $5,000 and one grand prize of $200,000 every year.

Mrs. Lehmann has been able to tone her muscles and increase her body strength over the last year; she used to be able to do two push-ups at a time and now does more than 20.

In September Ponoka Fit Club will start at 6:30 p.m. and the Lehmanns work with each person to find the right fitness program. There are many different workouts from 10 minutes a day to one hour per day depending on the skill level. Some programs offer cardio work and some offer tai chi.

“Everyone should have the opportunity to exercise,” explained Mrs. Lehmann.

Their goal is to develop a nutrition and exercise plan that is catered to each person’s preference.

“The transformation people have with these programs is just amazing,” added Mrs. Lehmann.

The Lehmanns are trained by Beachbody to provide coaching and nutritional advise on the company’s products.
