The Fit Generation
This award-wining documentary challenges our concepts of aging and it inspires people of all ages to live a healthy, active life as they age. On this journey, you will learn about the daily lives of incredible Canadians in their 70s and 80s who choose to stay fit.
They're facing cancer, arthritis, heart attacks, bone fractures, knee replacements, fatigue and the loss of loved ones, but they won't give up and stop having fun. On the contrary, they've taken leading roles in their communities and help other seniors stay fit every day.
With an increasing number of grandfathers and grandmothers enrolled in gyms and community centres, the Canadian province of British Columbia is not only pushing its local population to stay fit, but is also attracting people like 82-year-old George, who moved from Montreal to Whistler because he wants to "keep active and feel normal."
