I started this website and blog with one major goal in mind: Empowerment through movement, fitness and training. It occurred to me recently that what I have shared with you thus far has been lacking one critical element to reach this goal. Why? Because when it comes to empowering someone through movement, simply prescribing exercises or training routines is NOT enough. Rather, a deeper level of understanding is required, such that one can make educated, evidenced based decisions, regarding exercise choice, optimal positioning and progressions. Having access to all of this information truly enables someone to take their health and fitness into their own hands, and to design an individualized training routine to meet their OWN needs and goals.

A weekly video blog post (I think the techy kids call it a vlog lol) where I provide you with key concepts and recent research in the fields of Strength and Conditioning as well as Exercise Physiology. Through thousands of hours of post-secondary education, certifications, self-directed learning, and my own training, I have learned a tonne of information and critical concepts that have changed the way I train myself, my clients, and the way I teach classes. I cannot wait share this information with you in the form of weekly tips and small tidbits of information that you can apply to your own training in order to make it as safe, efficient, and productive as possible. After all...
"Knowledge is power... and with great power, comes great responsibility."
It's time to train your brain, and cultivate your mind-body connection. Building solid movement patterns, establishing good movement habits, and selecting the right exercises will enable you to optimize your training and performance to keep you healthy, happy and strong.
With all this said, check out the first Movement Minutes Post:
