Join us Sunday April 9th from 6:15pm to 9:15pm at our Westboro location (203 Richmond Rd) for the 10th annual Sporty Women’s Empowering Evening of Tips and Advice (SWEET).

A night all about inspiring women of all ages and abilities to get active. We have inspiring guest speakers, a short fashion show, local experts to chat with, sweet treats, awesome door prizes and we send everyone home with a loot bag!

This year’s speaker is Michelle Earle.me-on-spin-bike

In May 2015 Michelle Earle was a mother of three, working full time, a spinning instructor and running half marathons.  Then in an instant life as she knew it changed.  An accident left her paralyzed from the waist down. Almost 2 years later, Michelle is working full time again and back in the saddle teaching spinning classes!!!  Join Michelle as she shares her courageous journey back to independence and inspiring others to reach their maximum potential and push beyond their limits.
