The BC Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) has presented Surrey resident Kim Bond with a Fitness Leadership Award.

Bond has won the Program Director/Manager of the Year Award for inspiring staff and volunteers to be involved and do their best, and for her contribution to professional credibility and the promotion of fitness leadership.

Bond is the owner and group fitness director of Live2Play Fitness Studio.

She continues to work as a personal trainer, helping people achieve their fitness goals while also managing staff, training new fitness leaders and finding ways to help move the fitness industry forward in both professionalism and standard.

Bond helped to bring the pre-choreographed program R.I.P.P.E.D. to Canada and launched its first training session in April 2011. She also re-wrote and expanded the Hilltop Academy 340 hour Fitness Leadership Diploma program into a 400 hour program. Her efforts to educate, motivate and inspire people from all walks of life to embrace healthy and active lifestyles have extended to the community through volunteer work as well. She has performed various warm-ups throughout the community and is an active coach for the Steve Nash Youth Basketball League coaching a Grade 6-7 mixed team.

“As a program coordinator at Hilltop Academy and as an industry expert helping Canadian Fitness Education Services to revise its teaching materials, Kim has made significant contributions to fitness leader education and the fitness profession,” BCRPA Chief Executive Officer Suzanne Allard Strutt said.
