GoodLife Fitness is launching a new program in collaboration with The Canadian Legacy Project to support the overall well-being of Canadian veterans.
The Vet Fit program at GoodLife Fitness offers discounted memberships to any former member of the Canadian Armed Forces who successfully underwent basic training and is honourably released.
Administered by The Canadian Legacy Project, Vet Fit is GoodLife’s way of giving back to those who served Canada in the Armed Forces.
“I personally have five generations of Canadian veterans in my family, so I know how important it is to support our veterans by investing in services that improve their overall health and wellness,” said GoodLife Founder & CEO David Patchell-Evans. “Extending our assistance through the Vet Fit program is very meaningful for me.”
The Canadian Legacy Project was designed to support veterans, develop programs and events to help improve their everyday lives and to provide a strong support system for Canadian military veterans, young and old.
“The Canadian Legacy Project’s dedication to supporting our Canadian veterans made them an ideal organization to administer the Vet Fit program,” said Patch.
“We worked with GoodLife Fitness to develop this program as a way to offer an affordable option for Canadian veterans to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle,” said Dave Howard, President of The Canadian Legacy Project. “Vet Fit gives veterans access to an excellent membership option to the largest fitness club chain in Canada. It is a great example of what Canadian companies can do to give back to a community that has contributed so much to society.”
“As a Canadian Veteran, I understand the importance of continuing to pursue my fitness goals for long-term health benefits,” said Edward Batchelor, GoodLife Group Fitness Instructor and Canadian Veteran, retired after 40 years of service.

“The Vet Fit program offers our veterans the opportunity to stay active and contribute to achieving a healthier lifestyle.”
GoodLife has a long history of giving back and making a difference nation-wide.
“We contribute on a local, regional and national level to causes and organizations that are making an incredible impact on the lives of Canadians,” said Patch. “It is our purpose to give all Canadians the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life – this program is another step toward achieving that goal. We are committed to helping veterans feel welcome and cared for in our clubs. As such, we are also extending this great membership opportunity to a family member of each veteran as well because we know that having the support of your loved ones is one of the greatest ways to live a healthy and active life.”
