McMillan Elementary raises the bar
The McMillan Elementary staff are really going to be walking their talk and setting the bar high for other In motion workplaces in Abbotsford. McMillan Elementary is both an In motion Workplace and an In motion School. They are leading the way with in motion to demonstrate their commitment to physical activity. McMillan's two champions, Rob Carmichael and Woody Bradford, have put together an incredible staff workout centre at the school! This has been a vision for both Rob and Woody for a year and it has successfully come together. Opened officially on January 25, 2007, this workout centre is fabulous…. complete with two treadmills, a universal gym, a recumbent bike, an abs exerciser, two weight benches, a full set of free weights and a TV and music to top it all off. Staff are loving having a workplace gym to work out in, and it is being well used by them before school, at lunch time, and after school, and even into the evening. Woody has been offering his expertise to groups of staff in proper use of the equipment and in designing workout routines for them.
The inspiration for the McMillan fitness/exercise/workout gym came initially from Rob and Woody attending In motion Breakfasts of Champions and hearing how business organizations and institutions such as UCFV were able to provide such wonderful amenities for the wellness of their staffs. The dream was born, and the duo kept working until that dream became a reality for the McMillan staff. Woody and Rob would like to thank Abbotsford's Guideline Fitness for their kindness in helping them with advice on equipment to buy and on giving them such a great deal. This equipment will be well used at McMillan Elementary… Congratulations McMillan Elementary Staff!
