New fitness facility hosts charity function

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.
