I’ve been thinking a lot about movement lately, and how much we take it for granted.  Many of us have a tendency to grumble when we’re unable to find a parking spot as close to our destination as possible or think of exercise as a chore. I have heard myself complaining about how difficult distance […] Read More →

I have an expression that I share with all of my clients and group classes - Rock Your Range. To me that means focusin on working with a range of motion that is accessible and achievable for you and your body, today. Fitness, or exercise, is not about competition - its just about moving your […] Read More →

Sometimes We Need to be Selfish Thumbnail

Outside of exercise form and workout composition, the number one question I receive from clients is how to make time for their workouts. Between family, work, friends, and other social commitments people seriously struggle with finding time for their workouts. I'm not really any different. My life is just as chaotic with two kids, their […] Read More →

How to Fit in Your Workout as a Busy Mom Thumbnail

I recently wrote a guest blog post for the Girls Gone Strong website on "How to Fit in Your Workout as a Busy Mom". Writing this post was like taking a trip down memory lane and thinking about how I made time for "me" when my kids were especially little and they needed almost constant […] Read More →

#SundayMorningFamilyChallege Thumbnail

The best ideas often grow out of the simplest of beginnings. This summer I started hosting 30 minute workouts in my back-alley as a way to ensure I would get at least one workout in over the weekend.

I ate shellfish for years and then my first pregnancy put a stop to that. I started to notice minor, increasingly alarming reactions, to shellfish when my first kid […] Read More →

A Bigger and Brighter Future Thumbnail

It's been one year since I took a big breath and hit publish on my website. It was the biggest leap of faith that I've taken so far in my life and I haven't regretted one second of the past year. It has been a phenomenal year of growth for me as a trainer, coach […] Read More →

On the Road Thumbnail

It's back to school time but I'm still thinking about our amazing August family road trip! From Toronto to Philadelphia, Virginia Bean, Charleston, Pensacola, Dallas, Kansas City to Chicago and back home again! There was no particular destination; the journey was the destination. And isn't that a perfect metaphor for how we should include fitness […] Read More →

Ah, September Thumbnail

  September has been a significant month from the time we were 5 years old. January might be the start of a new calendar year, but the first Tuesday after Labour Day has been imprinted on our brains as a time of beginning. As summer winds down, I can't help but to think of this […] Read More →

A Mother’s Day Wish Thumbnail

For this Mother's Day I'm going back to something I posted on International Women's Day. Its a post that hit on a chord for many people on Facebook and Instagram and I think bears repeating. The heart of the message? Women count, today and everyday. Mothers come in all kinds of forms so let's celebrate […] Read More →
