Supersize your Exercise

Supersize your Exercise
with the YMCA and London Lightning!


  • Only 7% of children and youth in Canada meet the guidelines for Healthy Active Kids? You're suppose to be exercising at least 1 hour a day to be in good health!
  • Children and youth get an average of 7 hours and 48 minutes of screentime per day. That's your cell phones, TV, video games, internet, etc. (that's the same amount of time as a full-time job!). 

SUPERSIZE your strength, your fitness, your health and your smarts.


  • Be SUPER strong today! Focus on strengthening exercises for muscles, lungs, heart and brain.
  • Chin-ups, push-ups, and squats are great exercises to keep you strong.
