Cold weather, freezing rain and snow and chilly winds; all a sign that the winter season has arrived. It’s a season where we are less inclined to exercise. It’s also a season that leads into the festive time-of-year where we are much less inclined to watch our diets. So, it is timely that Flaman Fitness opened their new business on November 3rd, 2012 to help us ‘get and keep the body you want’. The new business in Wetaskiwin is located at  4510 – 40th Avenue in the Midwest Energy Services building across from the County Junction Cardlock gas station. 

In the late 50’s and early 60’s and 70’s treadmills and stationary bikes were becoming the rage in fitness centres and homes. In some cases they had gauges monitoring distance travelled and maybe even an estimated number of calories burned during a workout. 

In many cases the use of exercise equipment begins when people are diagnosed with a heart, or other medical condition. But as Kevin Attrill, B.Sc. Kinesiology points out, the use of this type of equipment has increased with people who are using it to lose weight and for fitness and improving and maintaining general health conditioning. “The benefits of using a treadmill are immense, they are great for helping you lose weight, increase lung capacity, combat depression and of course to improve heart health. They can be used in any season and now the treadmills have softer decks and great features to help you maintain and reach towards the fitness goals that you have.”

About the Flaman Group of Companies 

Flaman Fitness is a proud member of the Flaman Group of Companies which was founded by Frank Flaman in 1959 as a local agricultural retailer in the small community of Southey in southern Saskatchewan. The roar of the Flaman grain aerators installed in steel grain bins could be heard across the prairies as farmers used them to reduce the moisture level of the grain and prevent spoiling. 

 Flaman Fitness started in the early 1990's, when company founder Frank Flaman recognized the growing market for health and fitness products.
