Book A Class

Class Schedule

Even if you work out regularly, you can still “put your back out” by doing something as ordinary as vacuuming, getting out of your car, or removing a suitcase from a luggage carousel. First, there’s a jolt of pain and then the next thing you know, you’re bent over like someone twice your age, looking for a heating pad and painkillers.

It makes sense if you never exercise, but how can it happen if you exercise regularly at a gym or fitness centre?

It happens because conventional workouts and weight training regimens are designed to exercise individual muscle groups in isolation. Real-life exertions involve multiple muscle groups in your upper and lower body. If they aren’t exercised together, they’re unprepared to work together.

What you need is a workout that takes an integrated approach to muscle strengthening: a functional fitness program.

How functional fitness works

Functional fitness is all about building muscle strength in your core (torso) by means of exercises that mimic common everyday activities that involve multiple muscle groups tensing and stretching. These actions may seem unremarkable, but physiologically, they’re quite complex.

A functional fitness routine builds mobility and flexibility first. Only then does it shift its emphasis to building strength.

It doesn’t require expensive equipment. It involves exercises like squats, lunges and pushups, as well as simple aids like exercise balls, dumbbells, resistance bands, kettlebells, foam rollers, steppers or stairs, and a suspension system that uses gravity and body weight to develop balance, flexibility, core stability and strength.

  • Cold Lemon Hibiscus Tea is a healthy & refreshing drink! Only 2 simple ingredients needed to make this antioxidant-rich and sugar free cold beverage. It’s the perfect healthy drink for the warmer months, when you’re craving something refreshing! 🫖🌸🍋

DID YOU KNOW? Hibiscus tea is loaded with antioxidants and could be helpful in reducing oxidative stress in the body.

Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals invade the body and the body doesn’t have enough antioxidants to combat them. Free radical damage may contribute to many health issues ranging from cancer to aging skin, so hibiscus tea can be helpful.

1-2 bags hibiscus tea
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
Natural sweetener of choice (honey, stevia, etc.,), optional
Ice cubes, optional

Add tea bag to a mason jar filled with boiling water (add 2 tea bags if using a large mason jar). Cover with lid and set aside on counter. If using a natural sweetener, add in while tea is still warm and mix.
Once tea has cooled, remove tea bags and refrigerate until cold.
Add sliced lemon (and ice cubes if you want) to mason jar and enjoy!
