The task ahead of us will never again be as great as the power behind us 😏
Another epic trip to Toronto. I’m always floored by the dedication and hard work this team brings every single day!
I actually teared up a bit watching our fearless CEO @scottmarkk
show his vulnerability and emotions in front of the team. Proud of you bro 👌🏼
And I’m still pinching myself after witnessing OG Myodetox Founder @vinnierehab
finally share his story (that I’ve known for a while) with the rest of the team that Physio Room was the original inspiration behind Myodetox 😱😱😱
The team just keeps getting stronger. But let’s not forget every other member of Myodetox grindin’ and hustlin’ away daily in both Toronto and Vancouver towards a common goal. You guys are everything, thank you 🙏🏼
I cannot wait for Q4 to begin 🌊🌊🌊
Overcome fear of the upcoming.
Don’t think about it. I know it sounds simple, but if you’re able to distract yourself with other thoughts you won’t feel the fear. Distract yourself until you’re at the upcoming situation, and usually its not as bad as you would have ever thought.

Here’s a quick and easy mobility flow that includes dynamic stretches targeting the hips, shoulders, and back ⚠️. It’s one of my favourite warm up drills before working out 🏋🏻♀️. It’s also great for improving general stiffness! 👍🏼
1️⃣ Curl your spine down into a downward dog position.
2️⃣ Perform a push up into downward dog
3️⃣ Lunge into runner’s lunge and reach/rotate the opposite arm upwards
4️⃣ Step forward into a half kneeling position for a hip flexor stretch on the back leg. Reach the same side arm upwards while pushing your hip outwards to feel a stretch along the lateral side of your body.
5️⃣ Hop into a deep squat and reach your arm upwards into thoracic rotation.
6️⃣ Come up into a wide stance, hip hinge and lunge sideways into a groin stretch.
Repeat each movement 3✖️ on each side. This should only take you 1-2 minutes⏳, so no excuses 🙅🏻♀️....get up and MOVE ‼️
*Note this video was speeded up to fit the allotted time. Perform each movement slowly, FLOWING 〰️ from one to the other and don’t forget to BREATHE 🌬. Try it out and let me know how it goes! 👊🏼

Move to celebrate what your body can do. Don’t move to punish it for what it can’t. Love this idea inspired by @gvillasenor

Hey, my name is Willow. I’ve been in the fitness industry for a few years and I love it, it’s my life! This lifestyle has given me so much more energy and allowed me to meet so many amazing people. I’m passionate about helping someone reach their goals and showing them a better perspective on the fitness industry because a lot of people think of fitness as just going for a jog but there’s so much more to it. I love playing volleyball, hiking and simply going for a nature walk. If I’m active, I’m happy!

Here is an easy way to provide relief in a very common area for tension and stiffness.
By allowing the patient's arm to rest in an elevated position, you slacken the trapezius muscle. After gently grasping (don't squeeze too hard - mold your hand softly around it) you can instruct the patient to move their head to the opposite side as you lower their arm - go as far as it's comfortable, it shouldn't be painful. This provides a stretch from both ends as you provide pressure to the muscle belly.
A good cue that I like to use is to tell the patient to bring the corresponding ear to the same side shoulder (left ear to left shoulder, right ear to right shoulder). To treat the left shoulder, repeat on the opposite side.
⚠: attempt at your own risk, be sure to check in with the person in order to make sure it still feels good and there is no pain. This is not appropriate for individuals with acute neck pain or any severe conditions in the neck/shoulder region. When in doubt, do not attempt.
Thank you for being the body @seadon.rmt

Everyone talks about how great they feel after a workout, but is this always the case? Biology shows us that endorphins “feel good hormones” are released, so you should feel better, but some people claim feeling fatigued and generally do not feel well after a work out. The intensity of the work out and your consumption of oxygen can greatly affect your bodes ability to replenish cells. If your not feeling great after a workout consider things like your nutrition, breathing methods and scaling back the intensity of the workout.
When I first started triathlons swimming was a major challenge for me. Many of the people I dreamed of competing against were elite swimmers and I was very intimidated because I could barely keep my head above water. I had to go through a lot of humiliation in group practice swims, wheather with local swim clubs or triathlon clubs. I remember one of my swim coaches saying to me “Patrick this really isn’t for you maybe you should stick to running and cycling if you you want to be competitive.” After a year of swimming nearly everyday I eventually became one of the stronger swimmers in my swim club and swimming become something I enjoyed. This is just one example I believe in never giving up on your goals no matter what others may say!
False: Experts actually recommend drinking water for rehydration and eating a protein snack for muscle reconditioning. Some believe coconut water is the best natural source for hydrating with high electrolytes, nutrients and antioxidants. The evidence shows that you can rehydrate with fresh coconut water, but its not much more affective than drinking water. However, sports drinks are beneficial for long periods of exercising, containing electrolytes and carbohydrates for replenishment in your body. Sport drinks are also high in sugar, and unfortunately with a high blood sugar level, you will be forced to urinate more causing dehydration.
