Oh hi there, sorry it’s been so long.

Things have been kind of busy for us this past year. Kristal had a baby, Margaret turned 50 and they both just got back from a big, fat holiday in Greece. Needless to say, it’s been a bit hectic. But now that they’re back home and things have cooled down, they’re getting back to work. First up: Margaret is teaching two classes this fall in New Westminster. Head over to our Group Classes page for the details and information on how to register. Margaret also recently created a free running group called Run Group Run. She’ll be hosting free runs all over the Lower Mainland every Sunday starting this weekend. Want to join? Click here. Kristal won’t be teaching her classes til the Spring but she will be at the studio every Saturday this fall. Contact her at kristal@maximumpotential.ca to book a training...

MAXPO’S NOVEMBER CHALLENGE

After all the sweets and treats from Halloween this week, our bodies are going to need a bit of a reboot. Especially since the holiday season is right around the corner! So we’ve come up with a challenge that will detox our systems and help restore balance in our bodies. We love a good challenge at MaxPo and this one might be our toughest yet… NO SUGAR NOVEMBER Starting November 1st, we are challenging all our clients (and ourselves) to completely ditch refined sugars, including high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. This is not only about avoiding cupcakes or switching up your daily Double Double for a black coffee. The challenge is to also recognize and eliminate all hidden sugars from your menu. Sugar, including HFCS and artificial sweeteners, is in everything from almond milk to salad dressing. If you’ve never paid attention to labels before, you’re going to become a pro. Start this week by looking at what’s in your fridge. Read the ingredients on your ketchup, yogurt...

What’s Up with Workout Wednesday

What’s Up with Workout Wednesday

Workout Wednesday is a challenging 60-minute full body workout for all fitness levels. The class combines interval circuit training with yoga/bootcamp-inspired exercises using minimal equipment. Unlike going to a crowded class at the local community center, WW caps at 10 participants. I keep it small so I can give personal attention to each individual and offer modifications. If you’re not doing an exercise properly, I will come and assist you. In my class, you’re not just a face in the crowd, you’re a friend. WW always starts with a 10-minute warmup of easy exercises to get your body prepped for working out. Next is an intense circuit of 6-10 exercises that change every week to keep your muscles guessing. Have you heard of HIIT or Tabata workouts? High intensity interval training is hot these days and for good reason – it’s very effective. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, alternating between high and Iow intensities can increase your cardiovascular endurance, burn more calories, increase your metabolism and...
