City of Lacombe’s Find the Right Fit program expands in 2019

Program helps Lacombe residents make healthier choices throughout the year

The City of Lacombe is continuing to promote active lifestyles in 2019 with their Find the Right Fit program.

“The Find the Right Fit program was something we started a couple years back to help people get active and also find something they like to do,” Sonya Beauclair, Recreation and Culture administrative assistant, said.

The program, which issues coupons to participating facilities throughout the city is a way for the city to help residents find activities they enjoy doing.

“If they find something they like to do, they are more likely to continue,” Beauclair said.

Find the Right Fit initially started with a free day at facilities, but soon changed due to feedback to a punch card format. The current coupon format is the latest iteration.

“This year we have done the coupons where they can take them to the facility and do whatever activity they choose,” she said.

The biggest change in 2019 is the addition of eight new facilities to the list, which allows residents to find more options within Lacombe.

“We always find that people often do not know what is available in Lacombe. This allows us to promote business and help our residents support local rather than having to drive to Blackfalds or Red Deer,” she said.

The program does now allow current users to re-register, but they can make a request to have the eight added facility coupons added on.

“The City of Lacombe is Choosewell Community, so we are always trying to find ways to promote eating right and being active,” Beauclair said. “This is one of the things to help with that and even within this program we have tried to include healthy eating, so you can do things like go see a dietician at no cost and talk about eating right.”

The City will also look to continue hosting health programs throughout the year.

“One of the ones we did last year was Salad in Jar, which got some good feedback so we will probably run that one again. We will see what happens throughout the year and see who we can partner with to offer different activities,” she said.
