The start of the new year ignites a fire under those willing to make positive changes. This new sense of desire can also rub off on friends and family members making them feel inspired to embark on a new journey as well. Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre (SLSFSC) has a few different programs that may spark some interest to help you and those around you reach future goals or simply just try something new.

First a program for all the little ladies out there called Girl Be YOU. This program is for gals ages 7 to 17 and will begin in February. It will be well rounded with exercise and mindfulness and strives to empower and develop self-esteem. The classes will run on Mondays for one hour slots with two age groups, 7 to 11 (4:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.) and 12 to 17 (5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.). There will be demos taking place on Family day with the course itself starting on February 24 to March 30.

For the adults a 6-week challenge will keep you disciplined with customized programs delivered by personal trainers and meal planning with no diets, don't worry. Feel motivated and change your mindset with coaching that will help you overcome daily obstacles. The sessions can be scheduled ahead of time with head performance coach, Aime Sherwin or you can drop in at any of the time slots that may work for you. A one and a half hour 'Spray Speaks' session on health and wellness is also offered every Saturday. Sign up now for the 6-week challenge and start living your best life.

AstroNuts will be sure to get those space lovers in your household, blasted off. Meeting once a month, going into orbit Tuesday, Jan. 28 to Tuesday, June 23 this kids space club will engage all things cosmic. The missions will be one hour long from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will cost $120 light years.

"I have a different theme for every one of the six get togethers for the kids and the one coming up in two weeks is called "Living and Working in Space." I've got a whole bunch of great space props and videos and scale models for the kids to look at and we will have guest speakers and we will also have Skype guests so it's a real nice, quick, fast, fun, informative, imagination day, igniting curiosity with the kids," said space educator with the program, Ray Bielecki. "Space is a wonderful umbrella under which STEM and engineering and everything else gather, when you say space exploration to kids, they get excited about it."

Astronauts ages 7 to 12 can book their ejection seat now at slsfamilysportscentre.com/registered-programs.
