Drumheller Valley women got a crash course on how to stay healthy on Saturday February 4th.
Program Administrator Amber Leavitt said that the Women's Health Retreat that was held on Saturday February 4th at the BCF went fantastic. They had a total of 33 registrants this year.
"We spent the morning, doing a couple of workouts, and had a speaker on nutrition, who spoke to us about the importance of limiting your sugar intake, and how sugar can affect your health in a very negative way, so we have a lot of women talking about that, even after the retreat, and on facebook about how they are going to be eliminating sugar from their diet."
They also had two more speakers in the afternoon, who spoke about keeping a positive mindset, not saying awful things about yourself to yourself, and taking care of your muscles through massage, as well as how to make changes in your life so that you can strengthen your willpower.
Leavitt says that she believes women are going to be more excited about some of the new programs that they have at the facility.
"We had women come into the retreat, having not tried some of the workouts that they did. Pound was a big one, it's new to the facility so lots of people haven't tried it yet, and it was a hit."
Leavitt advised that they don't have any dates picked yet, but they will be making a couple changes for next year.
"We definitely will be making some changes, because we did get all the ladies to fill out a survey, so we are going to be going over that, and trying to kind of get a structure of what we are going to do next year."
It will probably be in February again next year, but registration will be open at the beginning of December.
