There are multiple times of the year that we are meant to detox (or cleanse) our system. If you follow the traditional approach, you detox in the spring and in the fall. Or, if you know and trust your body, you follow a detox plan when you feel you need it. For example, a holiday away indulging on food and beverages that you wouldn’t normally consume.
Spring is around the corner but for now it’s still cold and dark out. Are you finding it hard to get to the gym as well? Maybe even a lack of motivation to cook a decent meal…rather than ordering from Skip the Dishes. With winter being so long we can't afford to forgo all of the healthy habits we have in place during the rest of the year. So how can we get our motivation-mojo back?

We know that being overweight can lead to a host of negative health effects, such as an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Subsequently, losing weight can reduce these risks, while often also improving confidence and boosting self-esteem.

Pilates is a type of exercise that was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. It aims to build strength, improve endurance and increase flexibility through controlled flexibility, strength and endurance movements. Pilates focuses on proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. Core strength comes from your core, which is made up of the muscles in your lower back, abdomen and hips.

We think the FitBox is the ultimate gift (yess we’re a bit biased!) for a coworker, friend or a treat for yourself (did we mention the Winter FitBox is available to order now!) But now that it's just 12 days until the Christmas, we wanted to share what’s on our wishlist this year! We’re constantly scouring for new and cool products and we’ve included apparel, beauty and everything in between that will make any lady in your life happy! Plus you never know; you might see some of these in a future FitBox in 2017 ;)
Working in collaboration with local makers is one of the things I enjoy most. Here in Edmonton we’re blessed to have such a thriving community of healthy makers & shakers who create wonderful products. Bo & Marrow is just one of them.

Endurance training is important because it gives you the ability to perform higher intensity work and recover quickly from the associated fatigue.
The seasons are changing and so are our wardrobes. Most women will tell you it’s their favourite time of the year for spending those hard earned bucks (I can concur). Maybe it’s those to die for leather boots, comfy cashmere sweater or a new cold weather jacket (ohh the jackets) that your coveting! Well its also the perfect time of the year to switch up your fitness gear!
Perhaps one of the biggest, and most difficult challenges to anybody’s fitness journey is unhealthy food cravings. Even the healthiest and most fit people in the world have them and it’s easy to see why. After all, junk food is made of stuff that is simply addictive – and like anything that is addicting, is hard to kick out of your system.
