150 minutes per week - the second step to an active lifestyle

Exercising for 150 minutes or more per week at moderate to vigorous intensity will provide you with most of the health benefits of exercise. 

Multiple sessions, as short as ten minutes, add up to keep you fit and healthy.  Combining exercise with moving throughout the day while avoiding long periods of sitting provides a strong foundation for a healthy life.

Diabetes Reversal - Is it Possible?

In this webinar,  we review the emerging view that Type II Diabetes is reversible, explaining the mechanisms that cause insulin resistance and diabetes while identifying the behaviours that you can change to prevent, improve or reverse Type II Diabetes.
Exercise of the Week 

Concurrent Workouts Part 1

Should we perform cardio and resistance exercises in the same workout?

Many high-level performance athletes split up cardio and resistance exercises into different sessions to maximize their training and adaptation. However, this is not essential for most people.

Performance gains will still happen with concurrent workouts, so don’t worry about doing separate sessions for cardio and resistance training unless you have the time.


Next Week: Should we perform cardio or resistance training first?
