Fort Saskatchewan was treated to the full Body Break experience.
 
Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod were in the city on Friday (Feb.2) to hold a motivational talk as part of tour across Canada celebrating 30 years of Body Break.
 
"We're here at the Fort Saskatchewan library to really talk about physical literacy and what it means. Not only to an individual but to a family," said McLeod. "It's not about being that star athlete or being athletic, it's about developing skills that will transcend into your life as you grow older."
 
Johnson and McLeod were talking to both old and young.
 
"We're all kids at heart and if you're 70 or 10, those skills are going to benefit you throughout your life," said McLeod.
 
As for exercise advice for winter months: "get out and do whatever you enjoy, but get out and do it and find someone else you can do it with because that's going to help motivate you to get out there," said Johnson.
 
More than 300 people attended the talk, including students from Fort Elementary and James Mowatt.
 
The couple had everyone in the room up and on their feet for a quick exercise. Video is below.
