Unison Benevolent Fund and Fit On Tour have partnered to bring health and wellness to Canadian Music Week (CMW). With three events to choose from, the Fit On Tour x Unison wellness event series brings the music industry together to develop healthy habits and ensure the well-being of the Canadian music community.
In a business with demanding schedules and high expectations, making time for self-care can often seem like a luxury not reserved for the musicians, freelancers, and contract workers that make up the music industry. On top of that, many of us working in creative fields have difficulty allowing time for breaks or saying no to new opportunities. Overworking, losing sleep, and committing to the 24/7 hustle is celebrated, while the importance of self-care has been left out of the conversation.
Unison Benevolent Fund and Fit On Tour want to change the dialogue. In a culture where late nights and easy access to drugs or alcohol is the norm, this new wellness series encourages the music community to come together in a way that celebrates the health of our bodies and minds. Check out all the event details below.
To kick off the series, Fit On Tour Co-Founder Andrea Mac will be leading an all-level friendly 5K FUN RUN alongside her favourite local running shop, Blacktoe Running on May 7th at 6PM. The run starts at the CMW host hotel, Sheraton Centre in Toronto, and ends at Rivoli for a post-workout schmooze. Click here to sign up!
For the gym rats, or a beginner looking to try something new, the second event in the series will help you break a sweat while having fun. Bootcamp with Cassie Day of Fit Escapes will take place at The Attic, lululemon in Toronto. The 1-hour class is just the workout you will need mid-way through your CMW festivities.
