Wednesday yoga with a twist. It was fun to enjoy yoga outdoors this morning. The 15 minute meditation was calming #yoga #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #outdoors #beautyinnature #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #40isthenew30
I've had low energy this week so I've had to adjust my workout schedule a tad. Bipolar causes its limitations. Today I decided to try to get back in to the swing of things and did a resistance band workout. Even accomplishing something simple can affect your mental health positively #bipolar #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #mentalhealthawareness #resistancebandsworkout #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #gymlife #homeworkout #fullbodyworkout
It's great to grow your own herbs and spices. @sabinabunin brought over basil as a housewarming present and we've had months of great bruschetta, marinara, etc. since, and this weekend we added rosemary, and oregano to the indoor garden, and used it to marinade our chicken and fish (forgot to take a picture of the chicken). #indoorgarden #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #rosemary #oregano #basil #healthyliving #healthyeating

Got in a great kettlebell workout at home this morning. So glad that I added the new ones to the collection so that we can learn new movements and techniques in the comfort of our own home. Especially with fall/winter coming *****Today's workout***** You can do your own warm-up (5 minutes) and cool down (5 minutes). Use a kettlebell weight thatallows you to perform the exercise with good posture and stability. Do each exercise as many times as you can for 1 minute. 1) One-Armed Chest Press (each arm for 30 seconds) 2) Deadlift 3) Curl to Shoulder Press 4) One-Armed Row (each arm for 30 seconds) 5) Bridge to Crunch 6) One-Armed Swing (each arm for 30 seconds) 7) Backwards Lunge (each leg for 30 seconds) 8) Kettlebell Halo 9) Windmill (each side for 30 seconds) 10) Kettlebell Swing #kettlebellworkout #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #kettlebells #cardio #gains #40isthenew30 #gymlife #homeworkout
Sunday is a rest day but that doesn't mean that we have to lay around in bed all day (although if you feel like your body needs the rest you have to do what's best for you) so we decided to go for a bike ride and to check out the natural green space around the Evergreen Brickworks #evergreenbrickworks #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #restday #cycling #beautyinnature #gains #cardio #lissworkout #greenspace #personaltrainer #40isthenew30 #toronto
Bought a couple of new kettlebells so that we can get in a good workout at home. I'm sure I'm a little late in joining the party but I'm turning into a big fan of kettlebells and the diversity you can get in your workout while using them #kettlebells #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #kettlebellworkout #gymlife
#tbt a very informative and interesting Cameron Shayne seminar on animal locomotion, joint mobility, and an overview of some of the techniques practiced at @budokonuniversity. I had a blast #cameronshayne #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #budokonuniversity #animallocomotion #jointmobility #cardio #gains #40isthenew30
3 hours of muay thai over the last two days including around an hour of sparring. Man am I exhausted. Glad to have Professor Mauricio Amado back to teach new techniques and the latest in footwork. Always fun to learn and grow with these gorillas #muaythai #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #cardio #sparring #roundsandrounds #40isthenew30 #footwork #evolucaothaimma #gorilasdaporrada #familia
Decided to use the kettlebells again this morning. I'm not sure if its the fact that I'm using different equipment, the weight distribution/feel of the kettlebells, or a combination of both, but I'm enjoying incorporating the kettlebells in my workout program. I did the same workout as a couple of days ago so if you want a great kettlebell workout routine you can check it out in my past posts. #kettlebell #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #fullbodyworkout #kettlebellworkout #cardio #gains 💪
Wednesday morning yoga. Today we worked on our shoulders with a lot of isolation movements, and also some freestyle and mobilization work with our dowels #yoga #teamfit #dowel #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #stabilizationendurance #mobilization #namaste #40isthenew30 #shoulders
Pretty much the reason I don't use pre workout lol #jjsfitnesstoronto #teamfit #personaltrainer #whathappened #howdwegethere
With the rain coming down outside I decided to keep my workout indoors today and was pleasantly surprised to see that the kettlebells weren't being used when I arrived. I've been focused on gaining lean muscle for about 7 months now. For the first 3 months I followed a strict weight training program and went from 153lbs to 173lbs while bulking. The next month (4-6 weeks) I was cutting to get rid of some of my water weight so I did HIIT, AMRAP, tabata workouts, rode my bike more often, and attended more muay thai and bjj classes. I dropped 8lbs weighing 165lbs by the end of the month. Now that I'm back to bulking I don't want my workouts to become stale or stagnant so I've been diversifying my workouts any way that I can by doing things like working out outdoors, adding weight and/or time to the workout, etc. and I'm back up around 175lbs (was actually 178lbs at one point last week lol) Today I was able to do a full body workout by using kettlebells, something I've never done before. They definitely give you a different feel in terms of weight distribution, and I'll be trying to add this to my monthly workout routine *******Today's workout******* Around-The-Body Pass - 13 reps Bent Row - 13 reps Deadlift - 13 reps Figure 8 - 13 reps Windmill - 10 reps Front Squat - 13 reps Swing - 15 reps Half Get-Up - 7 reps Do each exercise back-to-back. Rest for a couple of minutes (I did 1 and 1/2 minutes) and then repeat for 2-3 rounds (I did 3). Happy Monday Everybody!!! #kettlebellworkout #teamfit #kettlebells #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains 💪 #cardio #40isthenew30 #fullbodyworkout

Went to Riverdale to get in my workout outdoors again today, but today I had company (me lady) so I got some footage Today's workout: Decline push ups - 3 x 9 reps Squat - 3 x 9 reps Reverse Crunch - 3 x 9 reps One Legged Lunge - 3 x 9 reps (each leg) Box Jump - 3 x 9 reps Cat and Mouse - 7 Dip bar walk - demonstration 40 yard dash - 2 ***Side note: Ran a 4.57 second 40 yard dash*** #riverdale #teamfit #toronto #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains 💪 #pushups #squat #crunch #lunge #jump #catandmouse #dipbarwalk #40yarddash #fullbodyworkout #40isthenew30 #cardio #outdoorgym

Took a 13km bike ride down to Woodbine Beach this morning. Rest days are very important if you want to see progress from your workouts and to avoid overtraining, but if you're going stir crazy and feel the urge to move, doing a LISS (Low Intensity Steady State) workout/activity such as a bike ride, hill walk, fast walk, slow jog, moderate swimming, etc. is a good way to get moving without putting to high of a demand on your body #lissworkout #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #restday #beautyinnature #ashridgesbay #woodbinebeach #cycling #cardio #40isthenew30 #earlybirdgetstheworm 🐛 #toronto
Date night with me lady. Fusili Ristorante is a great place to go for authentic Italian cuisine. Also, finally hit 175lbs. Bammm!!! #fusiliristorante #teamfit #mskwongisprettyawesome #datenightdindin #fettucini #gnochi #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains
Finally hit 175lbs on the scale today. I wanted to gain 17lbs by my birthday in September which would have seen me hit 170lbs, but by eating right and maintaining a regular workout program (12 weeks of bulking followed by 4-6 weeks of cutting, and repeat) I've exceeded my goal early. Feels great. On another note, took me lady to a great local restaurant. Fusili Ristorante is definitely going to be a go to for authentic Italian cuisine Great weather, great company, great conversation, great food. What more can you ask for? Just a great day all around. Hope you're having a GREAT weekend!!! ☺☺☺ #fusiliristorante #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #bulkingseason #datenight #dinner #italiancuisine #pasta
Rode by Trillium Park on the way home from the gym the other day. Such a great view of the city and I heard someone practicing their set or doing sound check at Budweiser Stage #trilliumpark #teamfit #cntower #budweiserstage #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer
With it being a little overcast I decided to take my workout outdoors today. There are at least 4 parks/outdoor gyms like this in the city. A great way to change up your workout, and to enjoy the outdoors at the same time 💪💪💪Today's Workout💪💪💪 Decline Push Up - 3x 9 reps Incline Bicep Curls - 3x 9 reps Behind-the-neck Pull Ups - 3x 9 reps Dips - 3x 9 reps Special Exercise: I call it "Cat and Mouse" on the ladder/rope thingy in the background. You move laterally on the lowest level from one side to the other (say left to right). When you reach the other side you climb to the top and touch the pole. From there you swing around to the other side (like being on the other side of a mirror) and move laterally on the top row until you reach your original/starting side. At this point you just have to get back to home base so you move down the rope/ladder until you reach the lowest level, and reach/swing around (without touching the ground) to your original/starting position. If you're with a partner you can start on opposite sides and the shaking of the ropes by the other individual will add an extra variable whereas your stability and grip strength will see even more of a response I ended up doing 5 or 6 circuits (I lost track because its fun and I was trying to beat an imaginary time lol) but you can do as many as possible until exhaustion at the end of your workout. Great cardio as well ☺💪 #outdoorgym #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #upperbodyworkout #pullups #cardio #stabilizationendurance #mobilitytraining #riverdale #bodyweightworkout #catandmouse
Lunch time muay thai training. Learned a new combo, with a focus on watching my cadence followed by a 5 minute kicking burn out, and ended off with some light stretching. Great class with great people #muaythai #teamfit #evolucaothaimma #cardio #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #treinotreinotreino #abs
Its been a while since I used the gym in our building because we've been doing a lot of HIIT workouts at home using dumbbells, riding our bikes, and there are a bunch of areas in our city with outdoor gyms so we try to take advantage of them while the weather's nice. Today I decided to switch it up and diversify my workout by using the chest press machine, resistance band machine, dumbbells, and an exercise ball to try to add lean muscle and improve my posture and stability. Chest press machine: Chest Press: 3x 9 reps Incline Press: 3x 9 reps Dumbells and bench: Chest Press: 3x 9 reps Incline Press: 3x 9 reps Dumbbell Chest Fly: 3x 9 reps Exercise/Stability Ball: Push-up with feet on ball: 3x 9 reps Resistance Machine: Decline Press: 3x 9 reps #weighttraining #teamfit #gains #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #resistancemachine #dumbbells #stabilityball #chestpressmachine #stabilizationendurance #chestworkout #gymlife #bulking
#tbt that time I had the honour of attending a Rafael Lovato Jr seminar @evolucaothai A great chance to learn new concepts and train with one of the greatest jiu jitsu minds of all time #jiujitsu #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #rafaellovatojr #evolucaothaimma #gorilasdaporrada #bjj

Its good to change up your workout routine so that your workouts don't become a chore. When the weather is pleasant its fun to get in an outdoor workout, and there are a bunch of little outdoor gyms in this city where you can get some good reps in #sircasimirgzowskipark #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #outdoorgym #hiitworkout #feeltheburn #40isthenew30 #toronto #sunnyside #highpark
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. If you someone to talk to you should not be too ashamed to ask for assistance. Self-care is very important #mentalhealthawareness #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #selfcare #treatyoself
