This was NOT a cheat meal.⁣ ⁣ Personally I don’t believe in them.⁣ ⁣ For 99% of the population to be fit, lose weight or achieve a health goal you do not need to treat certain foods like the plague. ⁣ ⁣ You CAN eat ice cream, pizza, nachos - whatever it is you want and still shed pounds. And if your current “diet” doesn’t let you - I’m sorry. ⁣ ⁣ Truly I am. Severe restriction can cause a heck of a lot of stress, is difficult to maintain, does not guarantee results and to be completely honest, SUCKS. ⁣ ⁣ If you’re currently struggling with a strict nutrition regime, I get you. I did it - for YEARS. During that time I was ridiculously unhappy, had a horrible relationship with food and didn’t actually see any progress. Basically it was a lot of stress - for NOTHING. ⁣ ⁣ Severe food restriction is not the answer for fitness or weight loss. Balance, and understanding how to fuel your body is.⁣ ⁣ If you want the ice cream, eat it. You are not “cheating” yourself. You can easily adjust the rest of your day to make sure your body gets what it needs ✨ ⁣ ⁣ xoxo

My trainer talked this morning a lot about finding balance in life. This week I started my nursing career and worked full time hours. A year ago, I would have just focused on my job and left self care for later. But this week I got up at 6am everyday and worked out. I spent half an hour every morning listening to worship music which calmed me before going into the clinic. I felt like I found balance, and waking up today on my day off I was actually thinking about how excited I am for Monday to go back to work and continue working on my health and wellness each morning. Also, if you’re looking for some good music, I highly recommend Vertical Worship. And if you’re looking for some workout programs that fit into a busy life, let me know 😉

💥NEW INSTRUCTOR ALERT 💥 . Misty Moss is a Victoria based Burlesque Performer + Aerialist. Misty has been dancing and performing her way through life until she found burlesque in 2015. Since her burlesque debut she has performed in multiple international burlesque festivals such as the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival, and the Edmonton Burlesque Festival. As an aerialist Misty trains almost primarily Lyra, and has featured as a guest teacher internationally with Momentom Collective. Misty is a ferocious advocate for self-love and body confidence, and when not performing or hanging upside down Misty can be found behind the camera helping people feel empowered in their bodies. She brings this passion for empowering people to her class style and wants to hold a space where all her students feel safe to celebrate their body through movement. @misty.moss . CLASS: Low Flow Lyra . Prerequisite: must have taken at least 1 beginner lyra class. . This class focuses on fluidity and transitions in a low-set Lyra, using the apparatus almost as a dance partner. There will be some lyrical inspired floor work, as well as sequences in the Lyra. Sequences will be done on spin, and students are recommended to refrain from eating 1 hour before class begins to avoid nausea. . #lowflowlyra #lyra #aerialhoop #aerialartists #aerial #yyj #yyjfitness #yyjaerial #aeriallove #aerialfun #aerialfitness #amethystdanceandfitness #lowflow #newinstructor #newclassalert

You are what you repeatedly do 👊🏼📚 — Since introducing reading and listening to audiobooks as part of my daily routine, my life has transformed in so many ways for the better. I’m currently reading @darrenjhardy book “The Compound Effect” recommended by my good friend @stormfitnationtraining. . — This book is a total game changer and really puts perspective on how your small daily choices lead to your ultimate success or demise in life. 11/10 recommend this one if you’re looking to level up any aspect of your life 💯💯💯💯

✊🏽HANDS UP✊🏽 • I used this session to practice working out of a high-guard! Keeping the gloves up near eyebrow-level and crouching low behind my arms for maximum coverage🛡 • While this position offers a defensive advantage I find it more difficult to stay balanced, implement solid footwork and head movement (not to mention getting lazy after exhaustion starts to kick in)😴 • New movement patterns to get used to! • • • * #letsgetafterit #catchthesehands #boxing #fitness #fighting #boxingcombo #bobandweave #flowcombo #boxingtraining #boxingworkout #downtownvictoria #victoriabc #victoriafitness #fitnessvictoria #victoriaboxing #victoria #jamesbayvictoria #yyjfitness #yyjfit #fitnessyyj #fityyj #fitnessgeek #personaltrainer #victoriapt #victoriaboxing #punchesinbunches #fitspo #instafit #summerbody #trainingtips
I ate out twice this week. Once at a pub and I got greasy food, once at a restaurant and I got a stir fry rice bowl. The pub night I felt gross after, and was quite sick the next morning, and the night after stir fry I felt amazing and woke up content and feeling great. You’ve always got a choice, I’m still working on making better choices when eating out because I love the feeling of being nourished and having a happy tummy instead of feeling sluggish and sick. One choice at a time 😊 • • • • • • #eatbetter #yyjfood #yyjrestaurant #yyjfitness #yyj #choices #foodpics #whole30 #whole30meal #bbggirls #bbgfood #sweatapp #workfromhome #workoutfromhome #workout #yyjfitgirl #islandfitness #islandlife #eatlocal #doodlelife #doodlemom #sidneybc #victoriabc #ipreview

Check out this short slo-mo Clip of a professional squash player getting a ball out of the back left corner. @squashskills points out the grip change. I also want to point out how his body is totally facing the back wall. Try it out and see if you have more success getting the ball out of the back corner! #squashlife #squashtips #yyjbusiness #yyjfitness #yyjactivities #squashtechnique #Repost @squashskills with @get_repost ・・・ Coaches eye analysis 🔊 Watch how Mathieu is able to choke up higher on his grip to give him a great chance at digging the ball well out the back corner. He's able to get under and around the ball with the ability to lift from such a short grip. ⠀ ⠀ #squash #psa #psaworldtour

Just a few snips from this weeks lifts. For a long time I have been feeling a staleness to my workouts. I was unhappy with my progress, had little energy and motivation and just felt like I needed a change. I recently started training in a new gym, which has me so excited to get out of bed and work out in the mornings. I also started @mindpumpmedia #MAPSperformance program, which is a periodized approach to improve mobility, raw strength, endurance, and explosiveness. Between a change of scenery, and new program I am feeling pretty pumped to see where the next few months take me. 💪🏼
This is one of the proudest moments of my life :)! @mary__mcalister has been working with me for quite some time and the last 2 months we have been working on handstands facing a wall to build up the balance and strength to do THIS! I say it’s my proudest moment because we work as a team and we both were so excited about her getting her FIRST ever free standing spotted handstand hold!! EVER in her life 53 and strong as ever. She said: “I didn’t want to come down” I’m so proud of you Mary ❤️💪🏼💃🏼 #yyj #yyjpersonaltrainer #yyjfitness #victoriapersonaltrainer #gymnastics #ballance #crossfitlolo #yyjcrossfit #wesquatdownlolo

🛡DEFENCE🛡 • There’s not a lot in the world of sports that gets me more excited than watching one elite level fighter throw a flurry of punches and kicks, only to have them all deflected or dodged but another crafty and well-timed individual🌪 • The ability to make your opponent miss completely is perhaps one of the most difficult skills to hone in the world of fighting • I’m new to the world of sparring and as such I still get tagged with a TON of punches🤕 However I’m practicing to develop my defensive skills and head movement in particular • In the following clips I start with the basic head movements: slips, dips, level changes and pulls. Then I begin to work these movements into jabs, counter punches and some light shadow boxing👊🏾 • • • #letsgetafterit #catchthesehands #boxing #fitness #fighting #boxingcombo #bobandweave #flowcombo #boxingtraining #boxingworkout #downtownvictoria #victoriabc #victoriafitness #fitnessvictoria #victoriaboxing #victoria #jamesbayvictoria #yyjfitness #yyjfit #fitnessyyj #fityyj #fitnessgeek #personaltrainer #victoriapt #victoriaboxing #punchesinbunches #fitspo #instafit #summerbody #trainingday
Happy Friday ☀️. • Coming at you with an awesome glue/hammy superset that you can try at your next leg day 🍑🔥. ————- 1️⃣ Plyometric box hip thrusts 2️⃣ Cable Kick backs ———— Make sure you keep your hips square to the ceiling, your neck in line with your spine, and focus on a soft landing during the plyo hip thrusts! A regression would be to take away the leap and focus solely on pelvic stability!! • Have a great weekend everyone 💕. • • #workoutvideo #workout #girlswholift #chickswholift #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #fitnessjourney #gluteworkout #hipthrusts #glutes #hammies #shredded #exercise #fitgirl #fitfam #fitspo #yyjfitness #lululemon #personaltrainer #stevenashfitnessworld #stevenashvictoria

Pole & Aerial babes ... mark your calendars for Electra Productions’ next show: POLECRAFT on September 27 & 28, 2019 at the Metro Theatre in Victoria, BC! Performer applications are now open - don’t miss the June 30 deadline for this opportunity to make magic with your fellow goddesses 🌙 . . Posted @withrepost@electraproductions ✧SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT✧ ⠀ Hello, beautiful humans. ⠀ After taking some time to revel in the magic of last season's first pole & aerial show ECLIPSE, the Electra Productions team has been busy brewing our next event! ⠀ ✧ - We are thrilled to announce our second show - ✧ ⠀ ✨POLECRAFT: Aerial Artistry & Other Spells✨ What is PoleCraft? It is a gathering and celebration of aerial artists; those who create magic through their movement and concepts.

These people have been both revered and persecuted, and yet willfully and often secretly, they continue to practice and perfect their crafts. . We invite our performers to explore the concepts of female power and corresponding fearfulness, otherworldliness, sorcery, illusion and transformation, secrecy, living outside societal boundaries (by choice or by force), and what it means to be called or to call yourself a “witch”. . 🔮Interested in performing? ⠀ ☝🏽 See link in bio ☝🏽 ⠀ #vancouverislandpolecommunity #poledance #polefitness #babessupportbabes #yyjdance #yyjarts #yyjfitness #polesport #poletheatre #poleart #yyjpole #canadianpolefitness #canadianpoledance #poletheatre #poledancerofig #contemporarypole #unitedbypole #unitedbypoleartists #poledancenation #contemporarydance

But is it fun? 🥳 ⁣⁣ Honestly there are not enough hours in the day to be locking yourself into ANYTHING long term that you don’t enjoy.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And that includes a workout routine.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you aren’t enjoying your fitness program one of two things are bound to happen.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 1. You’ll quit right away because #lifestooshort ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Or ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 2. You’ll push through your workouts because #health but resent every minute of it and quit slightly further down the road.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Bottomline, if it’s fun, it isn’t sustainable.⁣ ⁣ Now that’s not to say every second will be cloud 9, but you have to love the process, the end goal. You have to love it enough to want to push through the tough parts.⁣ ⁣⁣ Consistent fitness improvements are NOT built on fad diets and workout challenges. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Lasting results are a lifestyle change. And if it’s going to be your new lifestyle, I don’t know about you, but I’d personally prefer to enjoy it 😜⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There’s a training style out there for EVERYONE, it’s just a matter of finding it.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ P.s. Yes one day I will have my own tire swing 🤗

Improve your pull ups! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ One of the most common things people ask me is how to improve their pull ups. In particular, you ladies out there seem to think it’s impossible for you to be able to do pull ups. Think again. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here are some tips on how you can improve your pull ups: ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ • Start with banded pull ups, assisted pull up machines are okay but the bands challenge your core more and do a better job of replicating the real deal. ⁣⁣ ⁣ • Focus on form. Far too many attempt to do pull-ups using their shoulders instead of their much stronger lats. Keep your shoulder depressed and focus on pulling your chest up to the bar. ⁣⁣ ⁣ • Frequency is key. The more you practice the better you will get, seems obvious but it’s true. Even if you can only do 1 pull up, every time you go to the gym try to do 2. Once you can do 2 shoot for 3. Don’t just practice your pull ups on back day. Do it every day. If you have the luxury of a pull up bar at home, I challenge you to do pull ups every single time you walk past it. ⁣⁣ ⁣ • Weighted Pull Ups. Even if you can only do 4 or 5 body weight pull ups. Introduce weighted pull ups, maybe you can only get 1 or 2 reps but people often neglect to strength train when it comes to pull ups. Add 5-10lbs and do 1-3 reps. When you go back to body weight it will feel a lot easier! ⁣⁣ ⁣ • Strengthen your biceps(You too ladies). Your biceps are a secondary mover in the pull-up, strengthening them will help make your pull ups stronger. ⁣ ⁣⁣ Have questions?

Want to improve your deadlift? If you answered “yes” or what the f*ck is a deadlift 🥴 then this post is for you! ⁣ ⁣ One of the “big 3,” the deadlift is a compound powerlift with a lot of benefits for the muscles of your back and entire body. There are many variations of the deadlift, but here I’ve highlighted 6 ways to improve your conventional deadlift:⁣ ⁣ 1)Avoid positioning your hips too high. You want them to sit lower than your shoulders, but higher than your knees.⁣ ⁣ 2)Avoid squatting your deadlift. You want to position your armpit directly above the side-profile of the barbell. ⁣ ⁣ 3)Don’t let your shoulders collapse. Maintain active shoulder blades and a proud chest.⁣ ⁣ 4)Save the shrugs, keep the shoulder blades down and active.⁣ ⁣ 5)Keep your knees strong and wide. Push them out against your arms at the bottom of your pull.⁣ ⁣ 6)Avoid hyperextending at the top of your pull. Simply squeeze the glutes instead.⁣ ⁣ Want more help with your technique?
