The 5 Things to Look For in a Fitness Friend Dependability What good is a friend who is not dependable? Being consistent, not only in communication but also in fulfilling promises, is a sign of a good fitness friend. You want somebody who says what he or she does and does what he or she says. Dedication Commitment sets dependability apart from dedication. People can be dependably late or make excuses for why they can or can’t do something. But dedication is motivating. That stick-to-itiveness will keep you on the go and help you both reach your goals (and keep setting new ones). Passion Anyone who does something as a means to an end will eventually stop doing what got him or her to the end. But people who stay fit find their passion, and they use it to push themselves towards a healthier, more fit mind and body, with a lifetime in mind.

But none of this matters if the positive vibes aren’t there.

Cost of seniors fitness tax credit revealed thanks to Tory MP
The Conservative MP said he would not have made that request with the PBO had he known his request was not confidential. “I would have found another way to get at the information,” Galipeau said. While the Library of Parliament can provide customized research and analysis to parliamentarians and their staff on a confidential basis, requests for independent analysis by the PBO are made public. And the terms of reference for Galipeau’s request, including the fact that it would be made public, are stated in the report. “The final report would be presented and reviewed with the member and subsequently be posted on the PBO website,” the PBO said in the terms of reference. The PBO went on to say that “publication of the final report on the PBOs web site would be performed with the concurrence of the Member.” Tax credit’s effectiveness The report found that 41.8 per cent of adults over 55 years of age eligible to claim such a credit would actually do so. It also found that if a seniors fitness tax credit were implemented today, between $2.2 and $5.6 million of the total cost would go towards older adults who are not already doing some sort of fitness activity. In other words, only 12 to 15 per cent of the total cost of implementing the tax credit would go to adults engaging in some fitness activity for the first time, or in increasing their current level of activity. The rest of the total cost of implementing the tax credit would benefit taxpayers that are already currently engaged in some form of fitness program. The report noted that the cost estimate doesn’t include any incremental costs related to administering the programs. Initial request withdrawn Galipeau said this was not the first time he had asked the PBO to give him a cost estimate for introducing a fitness tax credit for seniors.
