Dear Person Who Get Sh*t Done

Dear Person Who Gets Shit Done, I see you out there working your butt off trying to make a difference in the world around you. You probably have a full-time job in addition to your passion-project, and there’s a good chance you are a parent, too.

I just endured seven of the longest days I’ve experienced in a year

Today was my first run in a week. And it was only 2.5k. For some this is an accomplishment, but for me, this is a hard pill to swallow. My run club is full of elite runners who challenge me to improve, but even their standards can’t compete with the one I set for myself.Continue reading “I just endured seven of the longest days I’ve experienced in a year”

The Most Infuential Influencers Who’ve Ever Influenced

Well…sorta. We’ve all seen the lists of top influencers and we know they’re all pretty subjective and this one if no different.

Happy New Year! I was at a comedy club New Year’s Eve party last night and the comedian asked us to indicate by applause whether 2018 had been good or bad, and there was no hesitation on my part to cheer for good. Sure I have experienced more stress this year than ever before (andContinue reading “You can’t make 2019 epic without this”

Why I’m Running Everyday in December

It’s December 9th and it’s about -7┬ádegrees Celsius (about 20 degrees Fahrenheit for my American readers) and I just got back from a frosty 5k scoot around the neighbourhood. Now why the heck would I choose to bundle up and hit the snow-covered sidewalk when I could’ve joined my father by the fire for anotherContinue reading “Why I’m Running Everyday in December”

It’s time to get real, fit pros!

As fitness professionals we’re often held to higher standards than the clients we serve. We’re expected to run faster, lift heavier weight, eat healthier, drink more water, and look fitter (whatever that even means). These expectations hit us everyday while scrolling through social media, flipping through magazines and watching tv. They hit us with pressuresContinue reading “It’s time to get real, fit pros!”
