Now to down whatever this is and get ready for breakfast #cardio #teamfit #joggingseason #pocarisweat #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmcertified #hiroshima #japan #travel #vacation #adventure

Up early as usual so I might as well learn something. I feel like I brought the right book to read considering our surroundings #awareness #teamfit #vacation #travel #japan #ekoin #movement #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer
So we visited Nara today which is a town in Japan where deer roam free amongst the locals. They're soooo friendly #nara #teamfit #beAdeer #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #travel #vacation #japan
Some post resistance band, sliding disc, and bodyweight HIIT workout pics. Nice to be able to get my workouts in while we're on vacation #resistancebandsworkout #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #cardio #hiit #slidingdiscs #nasmcertified #40isthenew30 #vacation #travel #japan #osaka
We had matching outfits on today. Also, we visited a castle #osakacastle #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #travel #vacation
At 500 yen a day I'm thinking this'll be my home gym for my time here in Osaka ☺ P.s. its not "anytime" if your hours are 10-7. Jus sayin #gymlife #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #cardio #travel #vacation #osaka #japan
They have pancakes on skewers over here. I repeat, pancakes on skewers. This is not a drill. This is why we play the game #pancakesonskewers #teamfit #vacation #travel #osaka #japan #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #yumyuminmytum
Airport yoga. Had to stretch it out a bit before our connecting flight #yyztoamstokix #teamfit #yoga #staticstretching #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmcertified #travel #vacation #airporthijinx
So this happened. Lots of early mornings to get in some extra study hours before work. I stayed home over the Thanksgiving weekend to spend the time studying. Many days and evenings spent focused on attaining my NASM-CPT Certification. I'm happy that it was all worth it. I'm looking forward to helping people reach their fitness goals, and to helping them lead an overall happier, healthier lifestyle. Special thanks to my mother, and to my girlfriend, for the unconditional love and support. Let's go!!!!!!!!! #iamacpt #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmcertified #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #40isthenew30 #gains #newbeginnings2018

Proper posture is important to maximize each exercise in your routine. Having incorrect posture can cause muscle imbalance which in turn can lead to a greater incidence of injury #squats #teamfit #healthylifestyle #gains #healthyliving #healthyeating #40isthenew30 #posture #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #properalignment
So I've been studying a bunch over the last couple of months and one of the most important things that I've learned in terms of developing proper neuromuscular efficiency is that you can't have a proficient kinetic chain without a strong core musculature. With that in mind, we have put a focus on working from the ground up by working on our core, balance, and on getting our cardio ready to run a 5k or two next jogging season This is one of our workouts from this week. We did 2 sets of 13 reps for each exercise in a circuit training format 1. Floor Bridge 2. Plank 3. Scaption 4. Single-leg balance reach 5. Squat 6. Lunge 7. Deadlift 8. Decline Push-up Rest as needed. Stretch and warm-up (5-10 minutes of cardio) before beginning the circuit training program, and do 5-10 minutes of light cardio, and then stretching as part of your cool down routine. Enjoy!!! ☺☺☺ #coremusculature #teamfit #cardio #gains #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #healthyliving #kineticchain #floorbridge #plank #scaption #singlelegbalancereach #squat #lunge #deadlift #declinepushup #40isthenew30
The evolution of our workouts. The first pic is the way we used to train, and the second and third pictures are what we've progressed to over the last couple of months while I've been studying. As we've also changed our diets, the overall improvement in cardio, energy, stabilization, and muscular endurance is definitely noticeable. Can't wait to get back from vacation and put an annual program together to maximize our efforts in the new year #homegymlife #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #gains #nutrition #40isthenew30 #healthyeating #healthyliving
Started to change our diets over the last month or so ago and the new menu's starting to grow on me. Can feel an overall boost in energy, which is positively affecting my workouts #healthylifestyle #teamfit #healthyliving #healthyeating #kalesalad #limegarlicdillpasta #bakedcurrypotatopatty #broccoli #carrots #garlicdillquinoa #homemadebreadedchicken #40isthenew30 #nutrition #personaltrainer #jjsfitnesstoronto
One of my favourite places in the world.

Today I changed the difficulty of my workout by adding sliding discs to the equation during my core training. It definitely increased the overall work to my core musculature. Today's Workout: 1. Mountain Climbers 2. Mountain Climbers with knees to opposite elbow 3. Mountain Climbers with knee outside arm 4. Climber/Slide Combo drill 5. Side Oblique Slides 6. Tricep Push-Ups 7. Bear Pose Circles 8. Side Cross Lunges 9. Bridge Slides I did one round of 10 reps (each side where applicable), and it ended up feeling like a great total body workout #coretraining #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #nasmstudent #healthylifestyle #heslthyeating #healthyliving #40isthenew30 #slidingdiscs #homeworkout
I put some kale in my morning shake and it didn't kill me. All kidding aside, I've been trying to eat a little healthier to maximize my workouts and I definitely am starting to feel a change in my energy and ability to handle life's every day stressors. I'm not even going to pretend to know the exact measurements of each ingredient, but I can tell you what I added to the shake. Protein powder, peanut butter powder, jumbo oats, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, bananas, mango, peach, strawberry, blueberry, and kale. Enjoy!!! #iputkaleinmyshake #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #proteinshake #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #40isthenew30 #nutrition #nasmstudent
So I've been riding the 18+ km (uphill ☺) to work 2-3 times a week for the last three weeks and as of today I've managed to get my time down from almost an hour to 49 minutes. Its great to have measurable goals so that you can see each progression. Being able to see even the smallest amount of progress helps with adherence to a healthier lifestyle #cycling #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #cardio #gains #40isthenew30 #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #iputspinachinmyshake

Up early for yoga and caught another beautiful sunrise #sunrise #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #beautyinnature #personaltrainer
Funny how your idea of what "new toys" are as you get older, but the excitement to try them out still stays the same. Getting ready for the next chapter, and building a little home/travel gym at the same time #newtoys #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #medicineball #foamroller #glidediscs #weightedjumprope #heavyresistanceband #powerresistanceband #homegym #gymlife #40isthenew30
So I've been studying a lot over the last month and a half, which is why I haven't been able to post as often lately, but I have been managing to keep in shape, and have continued to diversify my workouts. Last weekend I added balance training to my program and here are some videos of my first attempt at each of these exercises. I can't wait to look back and hopefully see how far I've come eventually. Balance Training Routine: I did 10 reps for each exercise per leg. Single-leg squat Single-leg squat touchdown Single-leg Romania deadlift Lunge to balance Single-leg hip rotation Single-leg lift and chop #balancetraining #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #coretraining #singlelegexercices #lungetobalance #gymlife #40isthenew30
Early morning mid-week yoga session. A great way to work in your core and balance #yoga #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #coretraining #balancetraining #stabilization #namaste
Yoga, a great way to test, and improve, your stabilization endurance. Its important in all phases of life to have a strong core musculature to aid with balance, and to foster correct postural alignment #yoga #teamfit #coretraining #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #nasmstudent #posturalalignment #stabilizationendurance
Some pics of this morning's sunrise. I've been busy studying away over the last month and a half but its still nice to take a moment to enjoy scenes like this to clear my head #nasmstudent #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #sunrise #cntower #skyline #beautyinnature #cycling #40isthenew30
Self-myofascial release, followed by static stretching, and a interval kettlebell workout #myofascialrelease #teamfit #stretching #kettlebellworkout #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #cardio #kettlebells #intervaltraining #40isthenew30
We packed a lunch,some snacks, our yoga mats, and hopped on our bikes for our Centre Island workout adventure this weekend ***HIIT Workout*** Each of the 6 exercises was done at a high intensity for 30 seconds with a 15 second rest for 4 Rounds totaling 24 minutes 1- Jumping Jacks 2- Front Lunge 3- Side Lunge 4- Boxer Punches 5- Reverse Crunch 6- Leg Scissors #centreisland #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #gains #cardio #cycling #hiitworkout #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #40isthenew30 #cntower #toronto #skyline
I love getting up early to watch the sun rise and workout so that I can catch scenes like this #sunrise #teamfit #jjsfitnesstoronto #personaltrainer #beautyinnature #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthyeating #40isthenew30
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
