A community presence in Ottawa for more than 140 years, YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region remains true to its mission of physical and social enrichment for men, women, and kids of all ages across all seven of its facilities. Staff members uphold the YMCA’s core values of honesty, acceptance, and fairness as they invest in their community’s children and strengthen family bonds critically weakened by overzealous games of Monopoly. They pump up adult fitness regimens with aquatic fitness and boot-camp classes, personal training, and full gymnasiums outfitted with equipment for basketball, soccer, and rope skipping. They’ve also filled their fitness centres with free weights, cardio equipment, and weight machines. When they’re not helping adults trim down waistlines during yoga, boxing, and salsa-dance classes, staff members are getting back in touch with their inner children. They stimulate imagination, mental development, and growth as they lead children’s day camps, after-school programs, birthday parties, and outdoor education.
These YMCA-YWCA outposts are dedicated to helping all members of the community. They provide those in need with emergency and youth housing, employment services, and domestic-violence support programs. They further strengthen and unite the Ottawa community through the YActive Assist program, which adjusts membership rates to help families that can’t afford the full cost of any of YMCA’s progressive programs.
After sixteen years cruising capricious waterways by raft, Horizon X owner Martin Bertrand feels confident that the best excursions must take place in smaller boats. Rather than placing customers in the more popular and cost-effective "bus" rafts that seat 10?14 passengers, Martin opts for the small and stable Maravia Diablo. Referred to by Martin as the "sports cars of rafting," the safe, self-bailing vessels comfortably seat six to seven passengers. It's this attention to detail and customer service that won them "Feature Award ? Tourism" at the 2013 Business Achievement Awards Gala held by the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce.
In addition to a whitewater rafting, Martin and his troupe of knowledgeable guides and instructors supervise riverboarding and kayak expeditions that last up to two days and often encompass Horizon X's signature overnight stays at a base camp. The base-camp is located on the Ottawa river with access to all of its breathtaking views. The base-camp excursions include recreation such as beach volleyball, horseshoes, and hammocks for groups of up to 42 people. As an incentive to encourage eco-friendly adventuring, Martin's green program furnishes free trip photos and tree hugs if participants carpool to the base camp in the best ratio for their group.
Dozens of veteran gymnasts serve as instructors in Starr Gymnastics’ three Ottawa-area facilities, where they favour instruction that emphasizes the most beneficial aspects of gymnastics: enjoyment, physical fitness, and socialization. Since only a small percentage of gymnastics athletes ever cartwheel their way to the competitive level, Starr Gymnastics' instructors teach proper balance-beam technique and safe tumbling skills without skimping on the fun, reminding their gleeful charges of gymnastics' inherent power to imbue agility and a foundational skill set easily applicable to turbo-kicking bad guys in dark alleys.
Starr's high-spirited staff occasionally spices up the play by inviting pint-sized gymnasts to don costumes or by darkening the arena while pupils leap, flip, and bear glowing cuspids amid a sea of black lights. The gym's festive approach to youth fitness occupies vacationing students during school breaks with summer camps, and birthday celebrants frequently gather in colourful private rooms for party packages that include equipment access and a T-shirt for the guest of honour.
Inside the 3,500-square-foot Bay Street Salon and Spa, staffers enhance exteriors with hair, skin, and body treatments that make use of natural therapies. Aestheticians mask mugs with Nelly De Vuyst skincare products, a Belgian line that's rich in vegetable extracts and that has been cosseting complexions for more than 40 years. The salon and spa's clients can follow stints at the shampoo bar with aromatherapy scalp massages, or they can surrender to seashell and hot-stone body massages and Golden Moor mud baths designed to extract toxins and misplaced binder clips from sore musculature.
The professional-quality cameras inside Book the Booth's photo booths are just as adept at capturing the smiles of birthday kids among their friends as they are at framing a glowing bride and her entourage. Even though there's no human behind the lens, personalized help is always available from the full-time attendant who comes with each order. Booths operate without electricity and can accommodate large groups of people as well as wheelchairs. The booth's high-resolution images can be purchased as prints or downloaded from an online gallery.
