Tools of the (writing) trade 🖋📚 Got myself ready to work here with my instrumental music, notes, research, candle, and - most importantly ☝🏻- a big ol’ cuppa tea ☕️ Seriously, I don’t think I could write if I didn’t have a mug of that hot and delicious ambrosia 😂 I also need a clean workspace where the only clutter is my material! Do you have certain tools you need to feel productive? ✨Any routines or items that help spark your creativity? 🧐 Let me know on the comments👇🏻 I’d love to hear about it! 💜
Had✌🏻workouts today and my legs are ready for some rest! I started my day off by participating in a barre class to get the firsthand experience for a future @seewhatshecando article! My legs and glutes were on FIRE 🔥! A couple hours later I was on the ice and being asked to play centre for the first time this season 😅 I mean I’m flattered but of all days to get the extra skating 😝 If you need me tonight I’ll be on the couch 💁🏼♀️✨
Dear Fitness Friends,
The NFLA Board of Directors if pleased to announce the results of our 1st Canadian Fitness Trends Survey! Below is the official press release and infographic:
The National Fitness Leadership Alliance of Canada has surveyed its members and here are the top trends for 2019.
Trend #1 – HIIT is still HOT
In 2018, we continued to see an explosion of high-intensity interval training (otherwise known as HIIT) and many new chains and gyms that are basing their programs on wearable technology. As we head into 2019 this is not expected to change much.
Trend #2 – 60 is still the norm
People are short on time, but most are still choosing either the 60- or 45-minute classes over the 30-minute fitness snacking programs. As much as the 30-minute classes are good, they don’t leave participants with the same feeling as the longer versions.
Trend #3 – Yoga is not going anywhere anytime soon
While yoga has been a top discipline for a very long time (thousands of years) it has mostly been something that people feel they really need, not just to work and stretch tired muscles, but to give them a mental break each week. There has however been a trend in 2018 towards more experiential yoga classes to participate in unique settings, outside in winter, with farm animals, times or even at iconic locations. Lunchtime yoga classes continue to be well attended. Fitness enthusiasts strive to find opportunities anytime, anywhere.
Trend #4 – Using Fitness Technology is SMART
Working with groups of people at various fitness levels can be a challenge. By using group wearable technology individual members can see their personal progress during the class. Everyone is short on time and this can ensure that everyone is working at their perfect exertion rate.
Trend #5 – Certified Fitness Leaders Always
One might think that all gyms use certified instructors. This is not the case, but we’re happy to report that every year more gyms see the value in the training and education of leaders and are ensuring that the people they are hiring are certified with a national fitness association like the NFLA.
Trend #6 – Personal trainers report equal weight loss and strength training goals
While healthy living is always on trend, as we approach 2019 we surveyed our personal trainers and it seems the top two reasons why people visit them is still an equal distribution of those looking to lose weight and those who are looking to increase their individual strength.
Trend #7 – Dumbbells, dumbbells, dumbbells
There have been so many innovative products released in the past 20 years BUT, most strength training classes are still using dumbbells in their strength training classes regularly.
Trend #8 – Fascial Fitness
Many of our participants are dealing with muscle imbalance and using foam rollers and other techniques can help them self-manage. Only recently, we have come to understand that the muscular connective tissue – the fascia – is one of the most underestimated tissues of our body.
Together we develop, promote and implement national standards for the accreditation, training and registration of exercise professionals in Canada.

We had a great time at #womenonfire last Saturday. We gained valuable insight into the physical requirements for Fire, Police, EMS and Canadian Border Services.
Representatives from each services department were on hand to answer questions, demonstrate skills and aid the use of tools and equipment.
Fitness appraisers were present to provide guidance and and tips. I have so much respect for the men and women that serve in these fields. Thanks for an informative and very cool day! 🚑🚒🚓
