Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod of BodyBreak are set to inspire Fort Saskatchewan.
 
The famous duo will hold a motivational talk on physical literacy for families at the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library at 11:00 a.m. on February 2.
 
"This is our 30th year of BodyBreak, we’re going across the country doing many speaking events, talking coast-to-coast and getting that message out and really doing what we’ve always been doing,” said Johnson.
 
Johnson and McLeod have motivated Canadians to live healthy, active lifestyles and have appeared on television throughout the years. They recently participated in the Amazing Race Canada.
 
"Joanne and Hal are such wonderful ambassadors who wholeheartedly support physical activity and healthy well being for families. We are so thrilled and excited to meet and have a photo taken with them," said Michele Feser, library director.
 
The library will dedicate the month of February to raising awareness of physical literacy.
 
The event includes a meet and greet and is free to attend.
