My Answers to Canadian Living Regarding Exercise Duration and Intensity

My Answers to Canadian Living Regarding Exercise Duration and Intensity

Canadian Living magazine recently contacted me with a couple of questions for an article for their blog, which can be found here: 5 Ways to Exercise Your Way to a Healthy Heart. I want to share with you the entire interview, as many of these tips are useful and helpful to my clients and readers. Enjoy! How long should someone go to the gym for in a day if they are starting out? When just starting out, it’s important that participants don’t take on more than they can handle.

You + the Sun: Vitamin D and Protection

You + the Sun: Vitamin D and Protection

Well, I’m sitting here in Costa Rica with some pretty red shoulders (and, a pretty patterned body overall). Conveniently, I saw a post on Instagram by the knowledgeable, practical and widely respected Megan Telpner on sun protection and vitamin D. It was info she was sharing from Living Libations.

Confidence and The Core

Confidence and The Core

People might think it sounds kooky, but having a strong core relates directly to one’s confidence level. The core is the power centre – responsible for all of our limb movement. It is the source of our movement, just as confidence is the source of our progressive capabilities in life.

When you properly engage your core, it changes the...
