SFN Gym Activities!

Aug. 26/16

Welcome Mariah to the new gym!


Hope you have all had a wonderful Summer, and continue to enjoy the last couple weeks before School and your daily routines start up again.

It has been long overdue to introduce myself to the Community. My name is Mariah Robinson, I am the Manager of your newest Snuneymuxw Recreation and Wellness Centre. I work with a company called the Canadian Recreation Excellence Corporation (Rec Ex) and our company partners with your Snuneymuxw First Nation to facilitate and oversee the operations of the newest facility.

I was born in Alert Bay, and I am a member of the ‘Namgis Nation. In 2010, I attended Vancouver Island University where I played on the Women’s Soccer team as the captain. In 2014, I graduated from VIU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism Management with a Major in Sport and Recreation. While attending VIU, I also worked with VIU Campus Rec and the VIU Mariner Varsity Event Staff. I enjoy spending time with my daughters and family; as well as playing soccer. In past, I have played at provincial and international levels.

One of the greatest goals in my life has always been to provide innovative and healthy programs and activities that enhances community engagement. I have experience in delivering positive activities for the communities in Alert Bay and the City of Nanaimo. I have over 8 years of experience with Management, scheduling, planning events and organizing multiple sporting events.

I am really grateful to be a part of an exciting new era for your Snuneymuxw Community. The facility is absolutely beautiful, and we have had great progress since February. We have had small phase openings since March, and we had a regular opening in August for Drop-In Activities and the newest Fitness Centre.

We have lots of programs and activities that will start in September such as Bootcamps, TRX Classes, Personal Training, Yoga, Hip Hop, Martial Arts, etc.. Once we confirm our instructors’ availability we will promote these on our social media platforms.

I have an open door policy, so please come by when we are open for a tour and I will do my best to answer any questions you may have. To stay updated and current on our daily hours and weekly schedules follow us on our Facebook Page “SNUNEYMUXW RECREATION AND WELLNESS CENTRE”.

Thank you,

I look forward to meeting you all and hope to see you all soon.
