Enjoy Your Exercise

Getting into or staying in shape is a very simple process: eat healthy and be active… always. Simple, but not easy. People start exercising with the best of intentions, but usually end up quitting within the first six weeks. Overhauling one’s lifestyle is not an easy thing to do and the typical method of hitting the reset button is to get a gym membership and start grinding out workouts three to five days a week. Unless the gym atmosphere and new routine really clicks, motivation wears thin and the best of intentions can’t compete against what ends up becoming a dull slog through endless repetitions and cardio signup wait times.

From fitness fact to fitness fiction: some fitness questions answered

Some people think that if they have an acceptable waistline, they do not need to exercise. - Fallacy Many of you already know that this is incorrect. Fitness isn’t just about appearance although that certainly...

New Year’s Resolutions or New Year’s Failures?

Some years are better than others and I make it for a...

What was interesting about his story was not Gene’s celebrity moment, although listening...

Initiate, Motivate, Habituate!

After seeing a lot of photos today about motivation and habits, I thought I would write a little something from my Yo-Yo perspective. I am very much a Yo-Yo in both fitness and my life. I get extremely excited, I think that I can change the world, I start planning the millions I will make with my great ideas and then about a week in, I lose that momentum and a few weeks later I don’t even know what all the fuss was about. I am certainly like this with the gym. One month I will go 3-5...

By Lewis Noppers Pictured Above: Evan Dunn, a team Canada Powerlifter from PEI, doing his deadlift to thank Tom for getting him started in powerlifting It is tough to put into words the thoughts that go through one's mind when something like this happens to someone that you have looked up to for so long in the sport, someone to whom you may have never truly expressed those sentiments. I am a true believer in the power of positive thoughts and positive energy. Since hearing of the...
