3 Biggest Running Mistakes


Today’s content is a must-read.  (If not, well, there’s still value in the principles) For me, running is a passion (I sadly can’t remember if I’ve spoken about this passion of mine).  I’m an accomplished half-marathoner at my peak and the main intent of my recent fitness “reboot” has been to go for more runs.  I love the ease of just stepping out the door, it’s literally a no-brainer so long as I’m dressed properly. One caveat: running can be a negative stress on your body as well as all of the positive benefits it procures. Here, for your viewing pleasure, [...]

7 Famous People Who Love Chiropractors


            Change of pace today. My tribute email a few weeks ago about Dr. Franco Columbu mentioned his best pal Arnie’s regular cheerleading of chiropractic.  That got me thinking… What other famous people both love and swear by chiropractic?  So I did a little digging.  And I was pleasantly surprised to discover some pretty illustrious folks singing the praises of my profession. Thought you might find this interesting. Take a look: TIGER WOODS “Being a chiropractic patient has really helped me a lot. When I was in a growth spurt, my back became very sore, and [...]

#1 Biggest Myth Re: Workouts & Low Back Pain


Did you know that working your core might be making your low back pain worse? Continuing with the fitness theme, I’m covering a very common misconception today.  So many people have heard that to prevent low back pain you need to strengthen your core.  And while it is true that a strong core helps support your back, if you have either acute or chronic low back pain… …There’s almost certainly more to the story. What matters is what’s causing the pain in the first place! I’ll circle back to that in a moment. One way the “do more core” advice is [...]

My “Glory Days” Plan To Get Back My Fitness


Keeping on with the fitness theme this month… I want to share something personal. I’ve been “off track” with my fitness for years now.

Here’s the short list of what I’ve put in motion: *Got an accountability coach *I’m writing out my workout plan (with the help of a trainer) *Putting in my calendar the days and [...]

Don’t Let Nice Weather Ruin Summer


Did you know that injuries due to exercise send more than fifty thousand Canadians per year to the emergency room?   For the most part, we’re aware of the risks of starting an exercise program.   But less so in connection with seasonal activities (even though we hear about people suffering heart attacks from shovelling snow after long periods of inactivity).   This was driven home to me last weekend when I lay down some new sod in my garden…surprisingly exhausting…truly like a blunt first intense workout.  Stretching was critical, posture too, yet I was still tired and sore for a [...]
