Dent Clinic Red Deer



Dents and door dings are a real possibility for your vehicle. The potential culprits are everywhere — shopping carts, bikes, balls even other car doors.Dents and door dings are more than a minor inconvenience — they cause your car to drop in value. They can also be very expensive when repaired at a traditional auto body shop.

There are multiple different ways to try and fix these “imperfections”. I had the opportunity to sit down with Paul Howard at the Dent Clinic hear and Red Deer to listen in on his expertise on this because nothing would bug me more than seeing my beautiful vehicle look not as awesome!

Over $3000, 2 Trailers of Household Items and Hundreds of man hours for High River!

UPDATE: August 2013

You know you just pray that if the worst should ever happen that someone might be there to help you out, this became a grim reality in southern Alberta this year. Our mission is wrapped up in ambition to help those in need any way we can. Our whole team wants to graciously thank our clients and our community for their generous contributions of money, items and time to help those met with strife begin to rebuild.

A small dent by a small group but then it all counts, in the end more than $3000, 2 jam packed trailers of household items and hundred of man hours were donated to clean up, thank you to everyone for your kindness and generosity.


After being there we now understand just how great the need is first hand, we’re even more committed to do for others that which we pray someone might do for us if the situation were reversed.

We’re still accepting household items to be transported to High River (we hope the end of this week) and until the end of July we’re going to continue to fund raise for the High River Relief Fund. For every $50 donation made at One-to-1 / Red Deer Fit Body Boot Camp from now until July 31, 2013 we’ll be issuing a certificate for a free month of Fit Body Boot Camp (may not be applied to existing programs sorry) additionally we’ll be donating 50% if the first month of any new Fit Body Boot Camp programs setup in July.

We’ve already raised over $2000, thousands more in household items and contributed over 200 man hours last Friday and believe we can do so much more. See the full press release details below.

Red Deer Personal Training Center to Donate a Portion of Revenue from Those Who Join Fit Body Boot Camp to Support Flood Relief Efforts in Southern Alberta


In an effort to support the community, Red Deer Fit Body Boot Camp owner, Cabel McElderry and business partner, Pat Kerr, have decided to launch a flood relief campaign to help those devastated by the recent floods in southern Alberta.
When Red Deer Fit Body Boot Camp owner, Cabel McElderry and business partner, Pat Kerr, saw the flooding unfold in southern Alberta they knew they had to get involved.

Kerr explains, “As flooded communities try to piece their lives back together, my team and I have decided to launch a support project in order to assist those devastated by Mother Nature.”

McElderry and Kerr’s flood relief efforts include donating 50% of the first month’s revenue from any new member who joins the Red Deer Fit Body Boot Camp to organizations involved in providing relief for flood victims, as well as turning the fitness center, One-to-1 Fitness (also owned and operated by McElderry) into a donation collection site, where they have already collected over $2,000 in donations from the community and thousands in essential household items. Also, a gift certificate for one month of Fit Body Boot Camp will be given to every person who donates $50 to One-to-1 Fitness’ flood relief efforts.

McElderry says, “Our public mission is to change 10,000 lives by 2015, we’ll continue to do that any way we can. I’ve always felt it’s important to do for others what you pray someone might do for you if the situation were ever reversed”

The Fit Body Boot Camp Red Deer owners have also organized a day to help the High River community, who have been particularly devastated by the floods, clean up and removed debris from neighborhoods and surrounding areas. On July 5th, 19 volunteers gathered at McElderry and Kerr’s One-to-1 Fitness center and made their way to the High River community and spent over 200 man-hours cleaning and removing trash, making the area safer for residents to return to and rebuild.

Kerr says of the tragedy, “Being in High River brings the severity of this disaster into new light. You truly can’t appreciate just how bad it is or what these people are facing until you stand inside their completely destroyed home. When you see someone with glazed eyes tending to their demolished lawn rather than beginning to strip their soggy, moldy basement, you get a chilling sense of just how much pain they are feeling. We don’t want this issue to get old and fade as there’s a higher need than many may realize.”


One-to-1 Flood Relief Effort more than $2000 and thousands more in household items raised so far...

One-to-1 Flood Relief Effort more than $2000 and thousands more in household items raised so far…


UPDATE July 8, 2013: More than $2000 between book downloads and contributions from our amazing clients, friends and colleagues and thousands of more dollars of household items have been dropped off! You all are so awesome!

After being their we see how great the need really is and we’re committed to do much more including some big perks until the end of July 31, 2013. Learn more here.

Either click the image above or here to download our free cookbook and we’ll donate $1 to the relief for each download until July 5, 2013.

As flooded communities try to piece their lives back together, we have decided to launch a support project in order to assist those devastated by mother nature.

We are opening One to 1 Fitness as a drop-off centre for those wishing to donate supplies and necessities for families that have been affected by the flooding in High River. All donations are appreciated, but please remember, families will need everything from basic supplies like toilet paper, soap, tooth brushes and tooth paste, baby diapers and wipes, socks, underwear, clothes, as well as non-perishable food (many people still don’t have power,) water, cleaners, kids toys etc. Anything else that is required to make it possible to get through day to day will be accepted – just think of all the things that fill your kitchen drawers, your pantry, your closets, your bathroom vanities – these are all things that people have lost. Brooms, mops, pots, pans, utensils, shampoo, dish soap, etc. (UPDATE: Some have inquired about monetary donations, these will also be accepted and added to the download donation pool to be submitted July 5, 2013 as well.)

Also, we are planning a day to go down to High River and help clean up and re-organize a senior living complex, as these people are the least able and require the most help and assistance. As this takes some planning and organizing, we are aiming for a day next week – if you are able and would like to help, please comment here and we will solidify a day and co-op on transportation. (Tentatively we’re trying to organize for Friday July 5, 2013) more details may be available here as Pat is working to lead the organization of these efforts:

Thank you all so much in advance……

UPDATE: July 2nd, 2013

Hey everybody…quick update for the High River Flood Relief…

We are a go for Friday July 5th and plan to be leaving in 2 waves. I (Pat) will be heading out with a team at 6am and a second wave for anyone who can’t leave work, get sitters for kids, etc will leave Red Deer around 1PM. We will be leaving from One to 1 Fitness: C3, 5580-45 Street, in the Cronquist Business Park. I have no idea what time we will return…there are a few people that are unable to get out of previous commitments for Friday night who will be returning early. For everyone else, physically, mentally and emotionally, an 8 or 10 hour day of service could be enough, so we will tentatively say we will work from 8:30 or 9 until 5 or 6? This would put us back in Red Deer around 8 or 9 depending on stops for food etc. We will be down there will multiple vehicles though, so we will have the flexibility for people to take off as needed.

***Again…if you have not already done so, PLEASE make sure your Tetanus shots/boosters are up to date. Expect anything and everything in that water; bacteria, toxins, pollutants, animal feces, dead animals, etc.***

@Dallas Heintz at Western Fiberglass has organized to donate and supply 80 dust masks, 30 pairs of paper coveralls, latex gloves, shovels and cleaning supplies. They are also providing 2 – 2” pumps with hoses, 2 one tonne trucks and a 34 foot gooseneck trailer with a Bobcat. ***For anyone wishing to donate furniture and other large items*** Please bring such items to One to 1 Fitness no later than Thursday afternoon, as we will be loading the trailers for safe overnight storage.

@Fred Sirett at Guest Controls in Lloydminster has organized to donate rain gear, rubber boots, cleaning supplies, food, water and other necessities. ***I will do my best to get a wide assortment of sizes for rain gear and rubber boots, but logistically, it’ll be impossible for everyone to be fit perfectly, so if your boots are a little too tight or your pants are too long (like mine will be for SURE lol) please accept my apologies in advance.

It appears as though we may or may not be able to assist in the area we had previously intended to, as High River is only letting people back into certain areas of town for relief help. Either way, there will be plenty to do.

If you are planning to help and have not already done so, please leave a comment here so that I can get final numbers together for supplies.

Please feel free to message me or call at 4035970847 with questions,

Thank you all so much in advance,


$2000 Bought 10 TRXs for Innisfail Middle School

innisfail-school1innisfail-school3It truly warms our heart to change lives, and especially when those are young lives.

Our world is a busy, fast paced place, one ruled ever more by technology.

It’s crazy the increased instance in sickness and disease in children and in young adults especially with strong ties and suggestion that this may be largely in part to the increased instance of child obesity and inactivity.

It was a pleasure to drop off 10 brand new TRXs to Ecole Innisfail Middle School to help the students explore a new dynamic of fitness. This was a combined gift from us and  the Red Deer Firefighter’s Children’s Charity.

We’re excited to return this fall and teach the students and staff about the many benefits of suspension training in accordance with our public mission to help change 10,000 local lives by 2015.

Congratulations Ecole Innisfail Middle School and thank you for you efforts to improve young lives by ensuring regular fitness and activity is a part of all young lives.

Today there are seven Walter Gretzky Golf Classic events across Canada. Red Deer is holding theirs on June 19th and June 20th at Riverbend Golf and Recreation area.

Athletes and celebrities come from all across the country to take part. Walter personally attends each one, socializing with participants on the course, attending auction nights, sponsor dinners and donor luncheons, and raising awareness on behalf of CNIB.

Join them for a great day of golf, prizes and fun. Most importantly, you’ll be supporting a fantastic cause: the CNIB-Gretzky tournaments raise an average of $375,000 per year for CNIB’s vital programs and services for Canadians living with vision loss. We have donated an over $300 value gift bag to help them out raise more money.

Over $500 in Just a Couple Days for Walk a Mile in Her Shoes!

The guys at One-to-1 are never afraid to “man-up” for a good cause, and what could be more noble than to speak up against rape, sexual assault and female violence?

Though it was last minute we were eager to participate and look forward to making this an annual effort. With just a couple days to the event we raised over $500 for this great cause and we’ll do much more in the years to come. To learn more visit:
