A Taste of Italy in Winter: Trainer Dave's Rosé Spaghetti Squash!

   Written by: Celina SellRecipe provided by: Dave Trought When those cold winter days roll around, everyone has a different way to see them through: some cozy up on the couch with a warm blanket, a delicious cup of hot chocolate, and a good book in hand (or engaged with a Netflix show); others embrace the chilly outdoors with winter activities like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and nature walks along snowy trails. What both camps of winter coping have in common, however, is a desire to round out the day with a hearty comfort meal that warms us up from the inside.  Whether you choose to join Jack Frost in the snow or finish that book/episode on the next forecasted cold day, our very...

A Goal Without a Plan is Just a Wish

Written by: Brittany Lyonette According to Forbes magazine, 80% of New Year’s Resolutions fail.  Despite our well placed intentions, despite insisting that “this year will be different”, and despite buying that new treadmill (DO NOT buy a new treadmill!  I repeat - DO NOT buy a new treadmill!), as soon as the first week of January ends many of our New Years’ resolutions have already become fleeting thoughts.  Every year you’ll run into those people who, when asked if they are making any resolutions, will say, “Naw!

My MoveForward Fitness Journey

Written by: Danielle Kerr I started training with Tom back in Oct 2018 when my sister gifted me some Personal Training sessions.  At the same time, I was going through a very difficult period in my life: my relationship was rocky, I had just sold my house, I was studying part-time, teaching yoga during the week, and on top of all that I had my full-time career.  I was beyond stressed, wasn’t eating well, wasn’t exercising, and just simply wasn’t taking care of myself.  That first month was hard.  Most days I only showed up to the gym because I knew I had a session booked with Tom and he would be waiting for me.  After a while though, I...

Three-Day Autumn Cleanse

Written by: Danielle Kerr As we transition into autumn, the crisp days and cool evenings will encourage a cascade of brightly coloured leaves to fall from the trees.  At this time our bodies will also undergo and shift in preparation for the new season, making it the perfect time to do a cleanse.  This three-day Ayurvedic cleanse will help your body transition smoothly into autumn by giving your digestive system a break, soothing your intestines, and helping to shed toxins from your system.  It is important to note that even though this cleanse is extremely gentle and shouldn't cause too much discomfort, you may still experience highs and lows, both physically and emotionally.  This cleanse should not be undertaken if...
