Taza Development Corp. has recently finished constructing The Shops at Buffalo Run, a lively retail center created to serve the community and visitors alike. With over 30 tenants now operating, Buffalo Run offers a mix of essential and recreational services, aiming to strike a perfect balance. From health facilities to wellness services, these diverse businesses are dedicated to offering top-notch options to the Tsuut’ina Nation and nearby Calgary neighbourhoods.

Let's delve into how eight of the tenants are reshaping health and wellness accessibility for all.

  1. Getting Youth Moving at Taza

    Buffalo Run is the home of FiT FOUNDATION, a youth fitness program designed to motivate young individuals to adopt an active and balanced lifestyle. According to Health Canada, kids require 60 mins per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity and only 39% of youth aged 5-17 meet the recommended guidelines, with boys (52%) being much more likely than girls (26%). That’s one of the many benefits of FiT Foundation - their program combines strength, endurance, flexibility, nutrition, and mindfulness to help children establish a strong foundation for a healthy life and ensures youth are beating the minimum requirements of physical activity. Beyond physical fitness, FiT FOUNDATION highlights the positive effects of exercise on mental well-being, such as reducing stress and enhancing self-esteem. Whether you are a local resident or just visiting, FiT FOUNDATION offers an engaging and inclusive opportunity for children to enjoy movement and fun at Taza. Purchase memberships here today!

2. Conquer Your Wellness Goals with Warrior Supplements

Whether it's improving mobility or nurturing mental health, self-esteem, and confidence, Warriors Supplement focuses on holistic well-being. Founder Lucas Kurtoglu believes that genuine health and fitness extend beyond appearances, emphasizing, "Health and fitness encompass the entire package, not just our reflection in the mirror." By providing educational materials and personalized assistance, Warriors Supplements serves as a hub for health and wellness at the Shops at Buffalo Run, empowering customers to proactively manage their well-being with assurance and expertise.
