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. It’s better to commit to a reasonable and attainable goal, because the most important thing in the beginning in the interest of keeping it going, is remaining encouraged. 45 minutes is plenty...

Men and Circuit Training

Men and Circuit Training

I’ve found myself in a few conversations lately with some big, strong guys who are sort of feeling stumped when they’re at the gym. They’ve been doing the same exercises for years and years, and don’t really know how they should be switching it up (many just hate to admit it and ask for help – which is of course why I start digging). So, they hobble around from the lat pulldown machine to the leg press, from the bench to the roman chair, and finally when they run out of ideas they leave the gym feeling certainly more depleted than pumped up. What’s missing? A solid circuit structure. Circuit style training is amazing for you men...

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...

Bouncing Back

Bouncing Back

Listen – I’m going to be very honest. After having some time off – time filled with lethargy, laziness and food comas – getting back in the swing of a routine can feel like pushing a boulder up a very steep hill. Going from elaborate celebratory breakfasts back to oats, flax and berries (although to be honest that sounds pretty great right now) is not always easy. I always tell my clients that we snowball in both directions, yet the unhealthy way is steadfast downhill, and the healthy adjustments are heavier and uphill. This is because, well, sugar and fats are addictive. The industries do it on purpose, right? Most of us know this by now. ...
