SlaDE~ and I finally took the leap … we invested in our health and well-being whilst here in Calgary and bought a family membership to the local gym. Not only is it convenient and pure luxury, it’s only a 5 minute walk away from our apartment. This is absolutely fantastic! No more excuses to not work out.

* Immune system deficiencies
