GoodLife - "Prospective Shopping Exercise"

GoodLife - "Prospective Shopping Exercise" | In the world of PR | Scoop.it
At GoodLife Fitness our mission is to make it easy for every Canadian to live a healthy and fit good life.

 

I actually work for GoodLife Fitness, and when I first signed up as a member, it was in club, so I decided for our class exercise, I would see if I could purchase a membership directly offline. My experience from this side of the fence, could have been a lot better, however I do get to see both sides of the story. You cannot actually purchase a membership online, as the Membership Consultants at GoodLife like  to sit down face to face and tell you your options as a prospective member. I feel as if there should be more available prospective information on the website. Currently I find that the website is geared more towards current members.

Missing teen’s body found in Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering

Missing teen’s body found in Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering | In the world of PR | Scoop.it

Mystery surrounds what happened to Mitchell Somerville, 17, a star baseball player.

This was a sad article to read as it hits pretty close to home, being only 18, this is scary. The worst part is, that I could have easily known Mitchell. I've moved around quite a bit, and had actually lived in Oshawa, the town right next to Whitby. I had many friends there, as well as played lacrosse for Whitby. My prayers go out to the family and friends of Mitchell.
