  • Personal Trainers are dedicated to helping people reach their fitness goals. Whether it be weight loss, energy gain, or being able to run a 10k race. They are trained in how to prescribe exercise and how to motivate their clients. So what happens when the Personal Trainer themselves doesn't feel like hitting the gym to workout? They experience a personal crisis. Read this post from Personal Trainer, Irina Almassan, to learn what she discovered about herself during this personal crisis and how those discoveries can help you achieve your goals. If you would like to learn more about the Personal Training services offered at the City of Abbotsford call 604-853-4221.
  • More than ever it can be hard to balance the demands of your worklife with the commitments and interests of your personal life. If your balance is off there will be a ripple effect through all areas of your life.  The Canadian Mental Health Association has a free, online quiz that you can take to see how balanced you are. Along with the quiz there are also a number of free resources to help you find your best balance.
  • Changing your behaviours is tough. Whether you are trying to eat healthier, be more active or get more sleep, changing our behaviours is tough. When we track what we are doing and reflect on what worked well, what didn't work so well, we are much more likely to be successful with the behaviour change that we are working on.  Here is a fantastic tracking tool from ParticipACTION that you can download and use right away to help keep yourself moving forward toward your goals.
