Exercise, Sidney, Victoria

Snow days! Still have a chance to exercise!

When I lived in Toronto, the snow wasn’t my favourite thing there because there was simply too much and it seemed like it snowed forever…however, I enjoyed this short show days in Victoria:)

My son and I shoveled and it reminded me of one of my personal training clients in Toronto.  She had a gorgeous house, but that meant a lot of shoveling!  She used to complain about her backache when  shoveling and I reminded her of our training philosophy, “athletic position (=tighten core muscles)” every time she scoops the snow.
Not only it helps to protect the back, but gives you more power to shovel!  The shoveling is a great outside excise that works for cardio and many muscles in the body!

Now, go out there and enjoy shoveling!
