Forty women came together under one roof this past weekend at the Badlands Community Facility for a life-altering kickstart to the 2019 year.

"We had our Third Annual Women's Health and Fitness Retreat at the Badlands Community Facility. This year was our largest one since we've started doing it. Including speakers and organizers, we had 40 people," said Masson.

Tina Buchberger, Indoor C.O.R.E. Cycling Instructor, Kim Masson, Coordinator of Recreation Programs, and Program Specialist, Amber Leavitt and thirty-seven other women were in attendance for this Retreat.

"This whole idea came from our core cycling instructor, Tina Buchberger," Masson said. "She does help organize and plan it. She just thought that would be something that the community would like to see here. The feedback from the surveys were all very positive."

"Our first speaker was Amber Leavitt, who spoke on body image and taking time for yourself. Our second session we had a nutritionist fridge and detox type session, and then our last speaker was Judi Rich, from Calgary, was fabulous her whole topic was awakening self-respect." Masson wrapped it up with saying, "It was focusing on the inner self and that's what that whole day was about."

The retreat was well received by women from the Drumheller and surrounding area and there is already talk for the Fourth Annual Women's Health and Fitness retreat in 2020.womensretreat2
