In its ongoing commitment to supporting healthy people and a healthy community, Headingley Seniors’ Services Inc. (HSSI) officially opened the Encore Health and Fitness Studio on October 01, 2014.

HSSI received a government New Horizons Grant toward an older adult fitness facility. The Rural Municipality of Headingley offered the use of the stage in the Headingley Community Centre at 5353 Portage Avenue. Through much work with Macdonald-Headingley Recreation District, ENCORE Health and Fitness was born.
