Leap into Fall

I have no idea why January is the start to the new year when September is the obvious choice. Ask any kid. When the classroom doors open for the first time, it’s a new year. No matter how old I am, when those first leaves turn colour, I just know I should be buying a new binder and a set [...]

Tennis Toe Woes

They say that true love for a tennis player is measured by a simple test: if you have seen their toes and afterwards you still love them, it must be true love indeed. If you are a tennis player, you can most likely relate at some point to having experienced the damaged, broken, black and blue, and often entirely missing [...]

Stress Distress

In about 8 years of working with clients in the capacity of personal trainer I have learned one thing for certain: most exercisers who face challenges with achieving sustainable results and with optimizing well-being are really under the thumb of one root cause – stress.

Tennis Etiquette

While watching tennis recently, I began to think about the etiquette of tennis. Both the players and the spectators willfully abide by certain unwritten rules which are governed by the laws of etiquette. It really is a spectacular display of tradition in action, and tennis etiquette is truly something that sets the sport apart. Etiquette adds to the romance of [...]

Holly Jolly November

There I was…on November 13, innocently reaching for a jar of Ovaltine on the supermarket shelf when it hit me. I was singing “Holly Jolly Christmas.” Why?

Yoga Go Girl

I remember feeling somewhat awe-struck when a friend of mine posted this picture on my Facebook wall a little over a year ago. Granted, when she posted it, it was accompanied by a sassy comment about the pants having silicone grip to prevent me from falling on my face. While I was indeed intrigued by the grippy tights (she knows [...]
