June 2 was National Health and Fitness Day — and what better way to begin the day than with bootcamp?
Participants signed up to run laps, hoist kettlebells, and push their muscles to the limit, as instructors Enrico Mazzone, Dave Falconi, Helen Taucar, Cynthia Chen, and supervisor Stephanie Uren yelled encouragement.
It was all held outdoors on the grassy west lawn between the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library and BWG Leisure Centre.
There were other free classes offered at the leisure centre, and residents could also participate in Zumba and outdoor yoga.
The event kicked off Recreation and Parks Month in Bradford West Gwillimbury.
Upcoming events include:
June 4: Outdoor kettlebells, 7 p.m. on the west lawn. Free for members, or $11 for adults, $9 for students and seniors
