For more than 30 years, BodyBreak has been challenging Canadians to
"keep fit and have fun." While 'keeping fit' is, of course, important for physical health, it's greatly important for brain health too! Baycrest research shows that 150 minutes of exercise per week can help delay the onset of dementia. Designed by artist Amey Lai, this bike helmet incorporates the bright and bold colours of BodyBreak to demonstrate how staying active can help keep our memories and connections vibrant so we can Fear No Age™.
For over 35 years, under the umbrella of BodyBreak, Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod have been encouraging Canadians+ to live a healthy, active lifestyle. They show just how practical and easy it is to do. But most of all …it’s “Fun.” Recently, they received from the Governor General of Canada, the Meritorious Service Medal for their years of dedication to helping Canadians.
Hal and Joanne are fixtures of Canadian media and have established trust and longevity with Canadians of all ages. To celebrate their 25 years of healthy living, teamwork, and positivity, they appeared on CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada as Team BodyBreak.
Hal and Joanne both grew up in Toronto and are former Canadian Athletes. Hal was on Team Canada for baseball, and Joanne was a hurdler on the Canadian Track Team. This inspirational duo enjoys “Keeping Fit & Having Fun!”
