Active Lads program is a fun and interactive weekly exercise program delivered by CPA’s ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologists.  

The weekly program includes a 60-minute session promoting healthy development through the use of exercise and physical activity.

This practice provides an opportunity for young adults to develop strength, endurance, and gross motor skills in a safe, fun and friendly environment. The group sessions are kept small so participants build strong friendships as a result of participation.
