Even though I live for isolated workouts, it’s important to keep athleticism and functionality to my body. So once a week I do a full body workout and one full body conditioning day.
How are you challenging your body??

Having fun on the @gibbonslacklines Slackrack connecting to my COG/BOS (Center of gravity/base of support) this morning!
Ski season is around the corner!
Be ready all the time for all things FUN!
This functional warm up circuit is simple & effective.
Great for the home, quick office workout or priming the CNS for a serious training session💡
1.) Step up lunges: 10/reps/each leg
2.) Straight arm plank walk up/downs: 20 reps.
3.) Step up to exposure squat med ball slams alternating lead leg: 10 reps. (You may also 86 the med ball and just step up to an exposure squat stance) -Take one minute rest then repeat three time total. (Note, I shortened the reps shown here for the sake of IG’s 1-minute video length)
Feel free to leave your questions/comments below. If you are interested in getting your own personal Gibbon Slackrack DM me! I can get you a deal 😎
Happy weekend everyone 🤙🏽 #dadgoals#centerforbalancedtraining#gibbonslackline#gibbonslackfit

Here is another one of our members who showed an incredible amount of dedication and discipline during the challenge.
Anita adhered to the meal plan, came to every workout with a desire for results, and smashed the challenge. She is happier and healthier than she has ever been.
Just another example of how the motto "team training, life changing" isn't just some marketing gimmick.

Today, communities across the nation are promoting this year’s National Falls Prevention Awareness Day with special events for their senior residents. St. Joseph Health/Mission Hospital sponsored this large educational workshop attended by 80 local residents this morning. At the completion of the workshop, we offered TUG Testing to assess their mobility and balance. A great learning day was had by all! 💪🏻❤️
🍌There is no one-size fits all diet. Some people thrive on high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets, while others feel best fueling themselves with plant foods. Whether we fall into the low-carb, vegetarian, Paleo, or “everything in moderation” camp, one thing that benefits people in all the disparate diet camps is whole foods. That is, foods that are unprocessed, unrefined, and replete with their naturally-occurring nutrients.
🍐When we consume foods in their natural state, our bodies are better able to digest, absorb, and assimilate their constituents. When foods are fractionated, isolated, hydrogenated, and otherwise chemically manipulated, they can present our bodies with unnatural and physiologically novel fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
🍉Consuming foods in their whole forms supports a healthy endocrine system. The clearest example of the benefits of whole foods verses their processed counterparts can be seen in refined carbohydrates. Whole food sources of carbohydrates typically include components that help buffer potential blood glucose spikes and also provide nutrients that aid in the metabolism of the carbohydrate itself.

Meet our amazing head trainer Steve Sanza!!!!🔥💪 Steve is a former London Knights captain. He played Canadian university hockey and played pro hockey in France. When Steve isn’t at F45 or playing hockey you might just catch him at Barneys. Here’s a bit more about Steve🏒
Why F45? 🔵🔴⚪️ F45 is built around having variety of workouts and movements. Never has a workout felt the same which is something you don’t get else where. Clients like the constant change in workouts. Not only the constant change but the fact the workouts push you every single time. Being the head trainer has been a blast so far and I can’t wait to see what the future has.
My diet hasn’t been the greatest seeing that I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I have been cutting out certain sugars to fix that. My diet will change when I order live fit food which will steer me in the right direction.
Music?🎼 Rap music when lifting weights, house music for cardio days.
Style of coaching?
My style of coaching is being the loud I think the other trainers would agree lol motivating, giving a helping hand, and giving that extra push the clients need.
Cutting a few unwanted lbs.
Perfect weekend is a nice summer day hanging with some buddies enjoying the time off. BBQing and having some laughs.
Fav thing about London?
Everyone knows everyone making it a nice place to live.... and Barneys. .

After 3 months of hard work, learning, and using muscles she didn’t even know she had, Megan FINALLY got a press handstand by herself. No jumping, no leaning against the wall, no block to elevate her legs for her, just straight up by herself. And she didn’t get just one, she got 4. Now she can go out into the world and do a press handstand wherever she pleases. Now that she has the press, she has a whole new world of movements to explore. @the.mini.yogi_
For training to learn the press handstand or any other gymnastics or calisthenics movements, or if you just want to get in shape, message me and ask about a free session.
Now that we’ve talked specific mobility, let’s put everything back into the big picture!🌏
. . .
This means challenging the joints of the body in different planes of motion, where they have to work together in synergy with each other in order to provide stability, strength and balance during functional movement. This is important for mitigating the risk of injury during everyday activities, as well as during all types of sports and training🏃♀️🏋️♂️
. . .
In the following exercise, the muscles of the foot, knee, hip and core must work to stabilize against the force of the resistance band as well as the movement of the gesture leg. Here, joint mobility is key, as it allows us to maintain proper form and technique, in turn helping to reduce compemsations and allowing for optimal activation of the muscles involved💪
. . .
🔹Begin standing with band around ankles, feet parallell and hip-width apart. Press pads of toes and all toes down and into floor, lifting arches of feet. Spine is neutral and abdominals engaged.
🔹Hinge hips slightly back as knees bend into a squat - press knees out against resistance of band, using glutes. Avoid arches/knees caving in. 🔹Shift weight slightly over to one side, maintaining glute connection; tap opposite leg directly out to side, back on the diagonal, and directly back. Keep leg parallel and hips and torso ”square”. 12-15 reps per direction. 👉Too difficult? Place band around knees instead of ankles.
