Teaching teens about health and fitness Manisha Krishnan mkrishnan@nsnews.com

WITH obesity rates as high as they are, teenage fitness has never been more important.

Luckily, there are a couple of programs in North Vancouver that are helping introduce teens to different ways of working out. The weight training intro program at William Griffin recreation centre teaches teens aged 15 and up how to navigate the gym. “It reviews the use of the equipment so it goes over all of the equipment in the gym, cardio equipment, weight training machines, free weights, and stretch rooms as well as other equipment such as bands or ropes,” says programmer Emily Wimbles. The three-session course

also covers effective exercises and a core program, plus it includes a one-on-one consultation with the trainers. “It’s basically a great program to motivate you and to set your goals,” says Wimble. Teens who sign up will receive a three-month membership to the rec centre. The program starts Jan. 14, 4-5 p.m. Another option for youth is the teen yoga program at William Griffin and Parkgate community centres. The fun class, available to those aged 12-18, is designed to help improve flexibility and posture as well as encourage relaxation. Classes start Jan. 10. To register for either of these programs go to www. northvanrec.com or phone 604-987-7529 for William Griffin and 604-983-6350 for Parkgate.

Babymoon brings parents together Manisha Krishnan mkrishnan@nsnews.com

THERE’S plenty of information out there for parents these days, but one woman is trying to create a community in which to share it all.

BEVERLY Kemp and Louise Howard tutor students in North and West Vancouver.

Finish strong: get the edge in school Manisha Krishnan mkrishnan@nsnews.com

EVERYONE wants their children to do well in school and tutoring can help make that happen.

Cutting Edge Tutoring in West Vancouver offers one-on-one tutoring to help children from Kindergarten to Grade 12. “There’s weekly tutoring and drop-in tutoring for students who just want to come in and get help before an exam or have a big project coming up,” says co-owner Beverley Kemp. Sessions are usually private, but there are also Study with a Buddy exam prep classes and preview math camps in June and August. “We supplement the core curriculum with our own resources that completely parallel what’s going in the classroom, so that kids get additional exposure to the academic material,” says Kemp. The agency sees all types students — some who need extra help and others who simply want to work ahead. “It’s a bit of a unique demographic . . . in West Vancouver. The vast majority of kids are university-bound so we have some kids who are struggling; we’ve worked

with kids with learning issues, but a lot of our kids want to excel academically, kids who are in Advanced Placement courses.” Kemp and her business partner Louise Howard, who met while teaching at Rockridge secondary, got into the tutoring business because they liked the one-on-one component of it. “We really liked the ability to be able to impact kids lives and really get to know them and work with them in that personalized setting,” says Kemp. Last year Cutting Edge, offered a $500 scholarship to a West Vancouver secondary student, and this year they’ll be giving out three $300 scholarships to students at West Van, Rockridge and Sentinel. “We wanted to award someone who was having a bit of financial difficulty and going to university was going to be a struggle without financial support,” says Kemp, adding they’re also looking for ways to support a sports team. Cutting Edge Tutoring is open to students in West Vancouver and North Vancouver. To set up a dropin session call 604-913-0720 — the cost is $70. Ongoing weekly tutoring is $58 per session. The office is located at 202-585 16th Street, West Vancouver.

The eight-week programs, created by instructor Vanessa Braun, are a mix of yoga, songs, rhymes and games, “She’s combined stories about animals and nature with yoga. So the kids read about something with a lion and when they hear lion then they do the lion pose,” says Rairdan. Classes run Jan. 7- March 4, 10:15-10:45 a.m. for toddlers and 11-11:30 a.m. for young kids. There is also a range of salsa classes for pregnant moms, moms with babies and moms and toddlers. In Salsa Tots, kids and parents get to shake their hips to fun latin beats with maracas. Salsa Bellies and Salsa Babies are also fun ways to keep fit and introduce your newborn to music. All three courses run Jan. 20-March 10, 1:15-2 p.m. for babies, 2:15-3 p.m. for tots and 6:30-7 p.m. for pregnant women. Rairdan, a former nurse and volunteer for The Adoptive Families Association of B.C., has done a lot of work with children and parents. She travelled all over the U.S. teaching the Happiest Baby on the Block class on a state
