CCAA- leaders in physical activity and aging.

Participant Profile

Peter Clements: A Masterpiece in Action

Many would recognize Peter Clements in the halls of the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging. Peter has made it a priority to incorporate the Centre into his daily routine before he heads to the University of Western Ontario as a Professor of Music Theory and Composition.

Peter’s passion for active living takes many forms. Twice a week, he does strength training and on Sundays he meets with other members of the London Cycling Club for a long bike ride. Peter regularly takes part in the Ride for Multiple Sclerosis, a two-day tour from Grand Bend to London and back covering over 600 km with camping along the way.

Even with his active lifestyle, Peter still manages to find time to volunteer at the CCAA. In the fall of 2002, Peter became a Certified Personal Trainer with the Certified Personal Training Network. After completing his Senior Fitness Instructor Certification in 2004, he moved right into instructing in the weight room for the Monday/Wednesday/Friday 6:45 a.m. Combined Class. If that wasn’t enough, Peter also volunteers his time teaching informal lectures and providing weight room instruction for the new participants in the Get Fit for Active Living program.

Those struggling to incorporate physical activity and fitness into their busy lifestyle need look no further than the CCAA and to Peter Clements as a great example for his commitment to active and healthy living. Top
