Staff 2nd Quarter Meeting and Recognition Lunch, Top Awards, Take 5 Moments, Award of Excellence, Cod Cakes!

This month’s segment of Now Trending is dedicated to our One Health Clubs Staff; and, to recognizing those who received Awards at our “2nd Quarter Meeting and Recognition Lunch” held on August 13th.

1. Top Awards

Our Quarterly Meetings are a great opportunity for our entire staff to get together, enjoy a great meal, recognize accomplishments and acknowledge staff members that are doing some special things. At this month’s meeting, we were honoured to have 2 Oakville members, Klaus and Carmen Mueller join us to share their inspiring stories at One Health Clubs. We are truly grateful to them for taking the time to come out and share their positive experiences with us. It’s people like these who help remind us that what we are doing is having an impact and that we are in this business to help change lives!

Congratulations go out to the recipients of our Top Awards:

Catherine: Top Membership Sales

Drew: Top Personal Trainer

Cambria: Top Front Desk

Kenny: Top Maintenance

2. Take 5 Moments

Walt Disney World’s Magical Moments are designed to enhance a guest’s experience. This year, at One Health Clubs, we have introduced our Take 5 Moments to recognize and acknowledge staff members who do something extra special, and spontaneous, for one of our members; or, for another member of our staff. (Think of “Take 5 Moments” as random acts of kindness and good will). There are opportunities all around us, each and every day, to help make people feel a little more special.

In 5 minutes (or less) the following One Health Clubs staff made someone feel special. For that we say, “Thank You!”

Daniel: Personal Trainer

Geoff: Personal Trainer

Cintra: Maintenance

Laura: Cafe

Eddy: Group Fitness

Miriam: Group Fitness

Monica: Group Fitness

Peter: Athletes Care

If you are on the receiving end of a Take 5 Moment… or… witness one in your Club, be sure to drop us a quick email for consideration at our next Quarterly Meeting, please email to

3. Award of Excellence

Congratulations to Oakville Personal Trainer Tim Pelletterio. This award is given out to someone who has made a significant impact; or, who has gone above and beyond the expectations of their department. Tim received a number of amazing comments in our June Member Survey. As well, a very touching email was received by our General Manager, from one of our members, regarding Tim’s impact on their life. Here is a small segment from the email. It serves to remind us why we are in the health and fitness business and how we can impact and help change lives!

“When I first joined the club in December of 2013, I was extremely overweight and not in good health. I had no energy and was very depressed. I was set up with a personal trainer, and to be honest, I did not want one! I had a horrible experience with a previous trainer (different gym) so I wanted no part of it. I also thought I could do it on my own. On my first day, Tim came over to me when I was warming up on the treadmill, the first thing I said to him was “To be honest I really don’t want a personal trainer, but they talked me into it.” He smiled and said “Okay, well, let’s just see how it goes.”

How it’s “going” is amazing. Since that first day, Tim has helped me change my life is so many ways. He always has something supportive to say to help me move past whatever issue I’m having. He gives me encouragement and tools to move on. He doesn’t expect perfection, but he does expect putting in the hard work if you want to make changes. Tim always has a smile on his face and makes my training sessions “manageable” as he likes to say. When you work with Tim, you have his full attention. You will never feel like he doesn’t want to be there. For that, I am thankful, because my life is FINALLY changing because of the great job he does”.

4. Cod Cakes – the winning dish

Thanks again to our Mississauga Cafe staff for cooking up a delicious lunch for all of us to enjoy. Of course, in true OHC form, we had to inject some healthy competition. The staff had the opportunity to vote for their favourite dish! Congratulations to Francesca and Maria for being voted as the favourite dish, with their Panko Crusted Cod Cakes! (We are not sure if they will reveal the recipe)
