Big things are going down!

Hello,

Today's message is about catching up. I have some announcements. It
has been a couple weeks since our last message. And for good reason.

First of all I was selected as a member of the provincial
SOGOActive Advisory Committee to increase fitness and activity
education for youths.

Then I landed a gig as a Strength and Conditioning Coach for a
local elite girls basketball team. Very exciting!

Then sold my house. Started packing this week.

Then found out my mother in law has cancer of the lungs and was
immediately shuttled into surgery at the next available time. She
made it out quite well and is recovering as we speak. However the
packing and moving will happen without my rock and lovely wife
(same person!) as she is off to be by her mom's side. I'll hang
with the kids in the meantime.

To say that I have been a little bit busy would be an
understatement.

But it also has made me appreciate all the help and interest I have
had from my readers.

Thank you for your time and interest. We only make this trip once
so let's have a good time and make the most of it

Thank you all.

In health,

Todd

STOP WORKING OUT!

STOP WORKING OUT!

The kids had it right all along!

It's happening right in your own back yard. Play time.

It turns out that shorter, more intense bursts of intensity are really, really good for you.

No gym necessary.

It only takes minutes a day to gain benefits that others need hours to do.

Researchers have found short sharp sprints of up to 30 seconds could be as beneficial as doing up to five sessions of an hour's exercise a week.

The university studied the exercise patterns over several years, comparing short high-intensity sprints to longer endurance training, such as cycling and jogging.

Prof Julien Baker, who conducted the research with Prof Bruce Davies, said: "Six 30-second sprints three times a week can have the same health and weight-loss benefits as jogging or cycling for up to 45 minutes several times a week.

Just so you know, it can also be done on a rower, bicycle or treadmill when we get trapped indoors during beautiful snowy days.

Any one of my clients can tell you the results they get with this type of activity. Even with their hectic schedules.

With the proper structure and support of my groups you will achieve the results you are looking for. Starting out where you are now, not sprinting right out of the gate, means a lifetime of gains for you.

So go and make it fun and invigorating.

It will be fun, effective, aaaand metabolic boosting!

Who wants to take advantage of that? Anyone?

If you are in the neighborhood and would like to see this for yourself please drop in.

The first on is on me!
