Many of you know it has been a career dream of mine to run fitness camps to help educate women on fitness and strength training.  I am happy to share that it is happening this summer.  I have put together 2 dates to run the first J Fit Athletics camps.

Find out what you like to do for fitness, try new moves, the tried and tested, learn order of program for best results, plus much more.  Now is a time of change in the world of strength training.  Find out how to integrate everything together for the best program for you rather than just randomly throwing together some moves along with what is on trend for the moment.

You will leave with a summary of what we covered.  This will be a fun day with meals.


The day will include:


  • Proper Warmup, Hardstyle KettleBell Training, Basic Barbell Training, Movement training, Rucking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding.
  • The day will focus on having fun and learning what is best for your body.
  • You will leave the day with skills/programs that you can use immediately in your fitness, like how to do a proper pushup.
  • Lunch will be catered and we will have rest/chillout time.
  • We will talk about the importance of when to train hard, rest periods, mindful lifting and junk reps, and staying away from injury and illness from training. Efficiency is key, not volume.

Please visit my webpage for further details and sign ups.  Space is limited.  Please contact me if you have any further questions.


Questionnaires and health screens will be sent out to all candidates. The camps will be progressive for those that attend both.

I have been getting a lot of questions regarding pelvic floor health lately.  A few simple rules to follow.

1.  Even if you feel fit late in your pregnancy avoid jumping, jogging and jarring movements, you may not be able to measure the pressure on your PF before it’s too late.

2.  Don’t start an exercise program too early.  Many women want their post pregnancy body back quickly and rush into an exercise program before they are ready.  Make sure your pelvic floor is healthy and you are getting enough sleep before exercising.  If you are experiencing urinary incontinence fix this problem first before multi joint weight training, running or jumping.  Follow the video below.

Starting point to help pelvic health.  Make sure your back os flat on the floor and your back muscles are slightly flexed pressing into the wall.  Lift your knee, FILL YOUR BELLY with air (not your chest), keeping your back flat.  Push the air out of your belly while flexing your abdominals and pulling up your pelvic floor.  You need to master this, then you can apply this biomechanical breathing match to many more exercises to start to improve.

I am setting up two dates for Hard style Kettle Bell user courses in mid town Toronto.  The first proposed date is January 24 (Sunday) and the second date will be a week day.  The course will cover Swing, TGU, Clean, Squat, Press, Snatch.  If you are interested please send my a message at 

Kettle bells are a moms best fitness friend.  Portable, capable of metabolic and strength training in a very short time, easy to store.  EACH MOVE HAS A BIOMECHANICAL BREATHING MATCH with the lifts.  This is very important for a mom.  It’s the start of learning to tense your muscles including your pelvic floor and diaphragm during lifts.  Its a work in progress but is the start of helping incontinence.  You may need some precursor exercises, but using this system of lifts will give you everything you need as a mom.

Wow my older daughter Kasia is having her 10th birthday party right now.  (I forgot candles for her cake-too many things on my mind).

I feel old- actually I don’t feel old- I still think I’m 25, but having a 10 year old sounds “mature”.  Since having Kasia I have not jogged due to pelvic floor injuries.  I was an avid runner when I was younger, competing in x country and long track events.  I switched to power court sports in my late teens, but still jogged. Like I mentioned I have found no joy jogging in the past 10 years.

A few weeks ago Kasia told me she won the school x country meet.   I thought to myself this is something we can do together.  BabyBump Mom Fitness 023

Although I would never jog thinking I will lose weight, or get the strength I need to feel great, I will jog with my daughter.  We jog sometimes walk and jog again through the conservation area near our house.  We look for deer and birds, fish swimming upstream and we talk- well she talks.  She talks the entire time-She a little girl trying to find her way.  I really feel like she appreciates our 20-30 minutes each week.  I hope it makes her feel loved and important because she is so special to me.
