Sunshine Coast LIFT, home to the Sunshine Coast Boxing Club, a new integrated fitness facility in Wilson Creek, opened its doors last Sunday, Jan. 20, to host a Community Charity Day in support of several local causes: the SPCA, Sechelt Fire Department’s initiative Trial by Fire in support of Muscular Dystrophy Canada, and local Coaster Scott Minch, in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The event included numerous free fitness classes, as well as a raffle with prizes provided by local businesses including Haley Dodge, Butcher Dave’s, Run with Soup, and Strait Coffee.
Sunshine Coast LIFT, founded by Tariq Abdulrahman and Kelly Schuster, is located at #102 - 1873 Cosyan Place, just off Field Road. The multi-purpose facility offers more than 45 classes per week, which include boxing, kickboxing, strength training, high intensity interval training, spinning, powerlifting, and fitness bootcamps.
With a focus on community philanthropy, LIFT prides itself on offering a scholarship program, through the Sunshine Coast Boxing Club, that supports young local boxers with competitive ambitions. They also plan on offering regular Special Needs Days and Community Charity Days. Check them out at www.liftscbc.com and on Facebook and Instagram @liftscbc.
