I Dared Him To Answer This

2021-09-10T17:21:09-04:00

As we (hopefully) turn the corner toward spring, more and more folks will be gearing up to shed those unwanted winter quarantine pounds. So I challenged a personal trainer friend of mine and asked him: “If you had just a few minutes to transform someone’s fitness forever, and you could never speak to that person again, what advice would you give them?” Here’s the 4 gems he answered with: 1. Try not to do too much too soon. Waiting rooms are full of weekend warriors who injured themselves or fizzled out by going hard when their bodies simply weren’t ready. Sometimes [...]

The Simple Question You Must Ask Yourself To Find True Health

2020-09-22T21:40:55-04:00

Our society is built around crisis management. Sure, you could say there’s lean toward wellness these days, but our primary mode is reaction and crisis response.  The pandemic has shown this.  Think about the advice we’ve been getting from health authorities and policy makers.  It’s all about minimizing risk, controlling damage, and little to no focus on building health and natural immunity. Apply this to individuals: We are often most motivated to get healthy when we’re sick or in pain. For many of us the spark that ignites our passion to eat right and live a healthy lifestyle comes when we’re ALREADY suffering [...]

Why Runners Should Get Stronger

2020-06-23T17:30:26-04:00

I haven’t done a running theme for a while.  Even if you’re not a runner, read on, you may still gain some health knowledge. Chances are you know I love to run.  And while I haven’t been consistently running, it’s a work in progress, as Hayden can’t get enough of it these days, and he’s a great motivator!  And since it seems the lockdown has pushed many more into our ranks, I thought it was time to show a little love to the runners. So for your viewing pleasure today, here is why I strongly feel runners should get stronger (let’s [...]

How To Avoid Neck Or Back Pain From Yard Work

2020-04-21T13:31:15-04:00

In my last email I mentioned we’re making our backyard more hospitable for extended homestays. This is going to require a little landscaping and other forms of yard work.  I even got Hayden in on the fun this week.  Here’s a peak behind-the-scenes: Well, it turns out I’m not the only one who had this idea. I guess with most of us being stuck at home, and the weather getting warmer (fingers crossed), some of my colleagues this week reported more “essential” visits from patients who were hit with neck or back pain from yard work or gardening. So here are a [...]

New Study: The True Power Of Exercise

2020-04-07T13:06:54-04:00

I hope you’re managing – I’m just about to head to the clinic for Tuesday’s emergency /acute care adjustment hours, and wanted to share this. A new study out of The University Of Sydney is proving the effects of exercise on metabolism might be even more profound than we thought. The researchers set out to turn down the “noise” of hard-to-control factors like age, gender, work environment, diet, and stress. So what they did is examine the metabolic profiles of 52 healthy young men who’d just joined the Australian military.  They were tested before and after 80 days of “basic training”.  The soldiers [...]

The Truth About New Year’s Resolutions

2020-01-08T13:10:08-05:00

Do you think using a different word for something can create a different outcome? For example, we hear so much about resolutions this time of year.  But we also know that, statistically, most New Year’s resolutions fail.  I believe one reason they fail is because they’re about changing things in ourselves, our lives, or our behaviour that we don’t like. There can be a lot of built-up negative emotion around something like that. Whereas feeling grateful for what we currently have (our starting point) seems to me like a much better place from which to ask for improvement. That’s why, personally, [...]

My “Glory Days” Plan To Get Back My Fitness

2019-09-24T02:10:27-04:00

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. And I’m finally getting around to having a plan in place to get back into things.  What I’m remembering – and why this may be useful to you – is that it’s no small task.  There’s work, planning, and dedication that goes into it. 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 [...]

Do We Control 70% Of How We Age?

2019-09-11T13:52:52-04:00

Shifting gears a bit today. I’m “back in the saddle”…adapting to life with a newborn (again!)…and with it being September, i.e. back to the routine for many people, I feel inspired to talk about fitness.  In fact, I recently decided it was time for your humble author to re-commit to my own fitness program. (More on that to come.) I want to start by planting a seed. A few years back, The Globe and Mail published an interesting article (“We Control 70% of How We age,” Alex Hutchinson).  The article talks about a study that examined fat and muscle content in [...]
