Have you been checking us out and thinking you want to try the Hub?
No matter who walks in the door for the first time they are a little nervous.
Where would the fun be if you weren't a tad nervous?
Being nervous is what happens before everything that can turn out good, great or one of the best things you've ever done.
Think about dates, skydiving, starting that new job. .
Nerves are a fear of the unknown and it's completely normal.
Just know the only real difference between being scared and excited is your interpretation; the feeling for the body is identical.
Interesting right ?
Everybody here was nervous, now it's home for them.
Now they move better than they ever could.
Now they feel better than they ever have. .
If you have been thinking of trying us out, and you're a little nervous...then good.
We can't wait to show you everything that's here.

Antes de mais nada, é importante entender que comer por motivos emocionais é perfeitamente normal. O problema surge quando esse comportamento passa a ser frequente e a trazer prejuízos como: sentimentos de tristeza, angústia, fracasso, ganho de peso corporal, descompensação alimentar etc. Como saber se eu tenho “comer emocional”? Não existe regra, e apesar dele normalmente estar relacionado com emoções negativas, ele também pode ocorrer em função de emoções positivas. Para identificá-lo, pare um segundo e reflita se você, mesmo sem fome física, frequentemente come para sentir algum tipo de alívio. Além disso, ele pode surgir de repente, e nem sempre está relacionado com a quantidade que se come, mas sim com as escolhas alimentares, principalmente os “comfort foods” e alimentos ricos em carboidratos, especialmente açúcar, por serem uma fonte imediata de prazer e recompensa.O que fazer? Não existe uma solução única ou até mesmo rápida. Cada caso precisa ser compreendido individualmente, mas algumas opções são: 1 – Tenha certeza que não está restringindo demais sua alimentação;2 - Entenda as circunstâncias em que esse comportamento ocorre (tente identificar horários ou situações específicas); 3 – Trace um plano de ação (saia de casa com lanches gostosos, melhore a qualidade e/ou qtdade das suas refeições, melhore o sono, pratique o autocuidado, mude sua rotina etc...). Como saber se cheguei a uma alimentação normal? Em 1o lugar entenda que normal não é sinônimo de constante. Nossa alimentação irá variar conforme nossa fome, nossa saciedade, nossas necessidades e preferências alimentares. E elas mudam de um dia para o outro! Assim, a ideia de comermos sempre as mesmas coisas, nas mesmas quantidades (modelo típico das dietas) e nos sentirmos bem fazendo isso é, no mínimo, irreal. Por isso, não fique preso a um modelo fechado de alimentação, tente entender as reais necessidades do seu corpo antes comer automaticamente. Ao se questionar sobre elas você passará a melhor identificá-las e, com o tempo, a responder de modo mais adequado. Basta ter um pouco de paciência e disposição para acertar, e também errar de vez em quando.

건강이란 큰 범주안에 운동이 차지하는 역할은 시간이 흐를수록 커지고있다.
오늘도 많은 환자들이 센터를 거쳐간다. 수술 전-후, 손상이 있지만 수술할 정도는 아닌분들, 적절한 운동으로 나아질 수 있는 분들.
나는 늘 '아프다고 움직이지 않으면 아픈곳이 더 생길거에요' 라고 이야기한다. 체력수준에 맞는 신체활동과 적절한 운동은 약이다.

A new report out last week highlighting the risks of chronic disease and mental health.
Shockingly, percentages of Australians that are suffering from arthritis, circulatory diseases, back issues and cancer are on the increase when there are co-existing mental health conditions present.
What's the solution?
Improving quality of life with exercise is one way to address mental health. Finding exercises that you enjoy can be mood enhancing - whether it be group classes, walking, dancing, you name it!
Plus, the added benefit of reducing the risk of co-morbidities is a huge bonus!

💡Be aware that not every session will be at its most optimal. Mondays workout will carry over into Tuesdays workout, as Wednesday may carry over into Friday, as an example. Fatigue accumulation is real & this is where programming intelligently is important as to not overtrain + perform at your best whilst still making progress. Today i could feel that yesterday's first brutal leg workout following comp had me feeling much less than 90% although i got my sleep & ate appropriately (work related stress may also have played a role here, however). This is why todays push sesh is dialled back a bit. ✔️Take home: understand that the week or day that has been, will affect the following days bouts of performance. Adjust accordingly.
This is Xochiquetzal, or "Xochi" for short. "I am a 28 year old, single mom and graphic designer. When I was 23, I had to fight against Stage 3 Glioblastoma when my son was barely a year old. Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), is the most aggressive cancer that begins within the brain.
With an unremovable tumor, I was told that I had a terminal illness which gave me about 6 months to 2 years to live. However, I had to try my best to stay alive for my son, because when you're a mom, you don't have the right to
give up." This is Xochi now, almost a year after going through the LIVESTRONG at the Y program: "My life completely changed. I was
finally able to do things that I thought I would never be able to do again."

I’ve recently been feeling extremely vulnerable around big changes in my life. I felt uncomfortable, naked, anxious and insecure. But, these are not new feelings. I remember feeling this way a lot in my past. It’s just now that I’ve been weaning off anti-anxiety medications that I’m dealing with them again.
Do you know the best part though? This is the first time that I’ve been able to simply be a witness to those feelings. To not judge them, or judge myself for having them. I don’t need to label them or find a reason for why they’re coming up. I don’t have to justify them or use logic to talk myself out of them. I’ve learned that I actually need to show up for myself in those hard times. I have the inner awareness and inner power to heal myself with love and intention.
Here’s my favorite 5 things to do when I need to hakuna my tatas:
-sweat it out
-get in nature
-listen to music
What’s your go to when you’re feeling anxious?

Join us for the next camp and next happy hour!
Caption this photo....
It reminds us of the reaction we sometimes get when we tell our patients it’s time to get off the table and the real work is about to begin.... exercise rehab!
Have you ever experienced the most amazing treatment, leave with a smile, only to find you feel the same a few hours or days later? Don’t worry, we have and we’ve learnt from it.
We’re creatures of habit and these behaviours will always win if they’re not addressed. Exercise and movement is the tool to address these patterns.
This is why our patients leave with at least one targeted, specific exercise to begin the healing process and quickly return to the activities they love to do.
It’s never to late or too early. The time to move is now 💪
Found my favorite restaurant in Oxford already 😂😂 but for real!! This hummus is so so so amazing! I also had soul soup & a wedge salad with chicken which were both delicious!! I think my parents were won over by the Hotty Toddy balls & chocolate peanut butter pie. Hello southern food 👋🏼
Back from a fantastic vacation to the west coast. A little more tanned, a little more chubby (mmm wine....) and ready to get back to work! #progressnotperfection
Everyone’s fitness journey is different 💪
My Farrell’s story is a bit of a rollercoaster.
I first got the idea of joining Farrell’s in high school, maybe 8 years ago. My dad had been doing it for years and he lost a bunch of weight. Not only that, he seemed really passionate about this program. So passionate that he asked my brother and me to join him for fun. So we did and we both LOVED it!
Fast forward a couple years into college and I’m at my unhealthiest. You know the story- late night pizza from the dining center, beer drinking nights out at the bar, constant stress from studying…it was bound to happen. Now when I say “my unhealthiest” I’m not just talking my physical health. I’m also talking about my mental health; I struggled with depression and anxiety as well as low self-esteem. I ended up on medications, which I am so grateful for, but I knew I didn’t want to be on them long term. Eventually, when I felt comfortable enough, I tapered off of them completely.
After graduation I worked a full time job while waiting for acceptance to graduate school. I decided to do Farrell’s again, kind of randomly. Unfortunately though, I wasn’t super consistent. I only went to classes part of the time and I didn’t stay on my meal plan. After the 12 weeks was over, I stopped.
Unfortunately I made this mistake one more time (last summer). I was consistent with classes until school came around again and I just quit.
Finally, last winter I decided this time was going to be different. I needed something to help me get back to a healthy weight, improve my mood and help me stay sane amidst all of the studying and stressful exams. I started my 12 weeks and guess what? I was freaking consistent! I went to every class, stayed on my meal plan (and found foods I actually enjoyed), and CONTINUED after the first session was over. I haven’t stopped since. The results? Holy cow.
✨I’ve lost over 15 pounds
✨My resting HR has decreased from high 80’s to mid 60’s
✨My mental health has greatly improved (endorphinssss)
✨The GI problems I struggled with my entire life are gone
✨My relationship with food is now a healthy one
✨I’m happy, confident, and comfortable with myself
Just moving around 🤷🏾♂️...
The great thing about movement is there are no rules... who said you can't lift heavy weights practice your hand stand, swim 15 laps, and then dunk on someone all in the same day..... find the version(s) of movement that makes you feel the most ALIVE!!
👉 deadlifts can been a great exercise but where do you feel most of the effort (or muscle fatigue) coming from when you do your reps? is it mostly coming from your back? your glutes? your quads? your arms? a few things to keep in mind: 1️⃣ maintain neutral spine and engage core 2️⃣ shoulders slightly ahead of midfoot 3️⃣ bar over midfoot 4️⃣ driving force should come from hammies 5️⃣ pull bar straight up 6️⃣ extend hips forward as you move towards finish position. not sure what we are talking about or need some personalized tips? ask us, we are here to help 🙋♀️🙋♂️
Farmer Carries for Rose —Farmer Carries are a great whole body exercise: Why you ask? Keep reading....
👩🏽🌾 Increases core strength as it braces and stabilises the entire body.
👨🏽🌾Increases Grip Strength in fingers, wrists and forearms.
👩🏽🌾Improve Posture - upper back muscles activating to keep shoulders and chest from sagging. 👨🏽🌾Strengthen lower limbs: glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps and gastrocnemius.
I love prescribing Farmer Carries in group exercises as they are extremely function in everyday life (not only farm work). This exercise is just like you are carrying heavy grocery bags! So next time you go shopping make sure you brace your core and stand up tall to protect that back.
