Partners and owners - Tracie Albisser and Ann Holmes - work together and teach in the Kinesiology Diploma Program at the College of New Caledonia. They have bonded over their mutual interest in health, wellness, and fitness. Over numerous passionate discussions about the state of health, healthcare, the staggering increases in chronic illness and obesity, and concerns about healthy aging, the business concept of Active Health Solutions (AHS) was born.
Both Tracie and Ann stay current with the latest research in health, rehabilitation, fitness, nutrition, and aging, and have realized that the modern solutions of diet and exercise simply are not working for a segment of the population, particularly older Canadians (the Baby Boomers, and that demographic is increasing in size). Their concept of a full-service, clinical wellness facility emphasizes all dimensions of holistic health. Their community approach and commitment to social connection will increase adherence to long-term, positive changes in every client that comes to AHS.
Active Health Solutions is not a gym … we are “the ungym.” We want to change the way fitness is done.
This is a new approach to health and fitness in the north – our intake/assessment procedures and programming will assure safety, support, and comfort. We are especially mindful of inexperienced or cautious adults.
We have the expertise to cater to adults that have chronic injuries or illnesses (issues like arthritis, hip or knee replacements, diabetes, heart disease, being overweight, or anything associated with aging). We can help anyone move more to improve their health and wellness.
Our services cost less than physiotherapy or expensive medications.
Our business model fills the gaps in the health care system: we are not primary care but we help people either before or after medical intervention and/or physiotherapy. Ideally, we want to serve people that want to get more fit – to maintain and/or increase their mobility and strength.
We run small group classes (12-15 participants maximum), rehabilitation classes, health seminars, and personal health coaching (and ancillary services related to fitness, health and rehab)
We have a full-service community kitchen to serve as a gathering place for participants to use after class to have a cup of coffee or tea. In addition, this space will serve as a classroom to offer weekly health seminars. We offer nutrition information and personal health coaching as an extension of these lectures.
We can show you that it is never too late to be healthy!
