***ALL LEVELS WELCOME AND BEGINNERS ARE ENCOURAGED***
Our workout will be lead by Fit Squad, a personal training and small group fitness training company located in downtown Toronto. Fit Squad is committed to delivering result-based training by bringing an unparalleled experience through a leading-edge methodology and exceptional coaching. The culture they have built is that of always pushing personal limits and driving forward, both inside and outside the gym. They see the gym as the ultimate training ground for life and an opportunity to evolve who we are every single day.
We are also excited to introduce our speaker for this workshop, wellness creator, Miranda Popen. Miranda is a Tier 3 trainer at Equinox and was a professional figure skater who rode the diet roller coaster hoping to get that “perfect body”. She is passionate about helping women discover how they feel internally and how they move externally through nutrition, fitness, lifestyle and self care. For much of her teenage life, her relationship with the gym revolved around a hatred for her body. Seeing it as a punishment for eating too much or doing too little. Since understanding the science behind the body and developing a true appreciation for it and all that it can do, she now realizes just how many other reasons she has for exercising.
There's a new wave of weightlifting underway–and this time around, it includes women. What was once mostly reserved as a workout for men, has now made its way into the general health and wellness scene, with women in particular taking up an interest in strength-training to supplement their exercise routines. Even though weightlifting is recommended as integral to any adult's daily workout routine, women have rarely been pegged as weightlifters. Now, with a more mind-body approach, weightlifting is back on the radar for wellness enthusiasts everywhere. As women living in today's society, the pressure to live up to an unattainable standard of beauty has never been more intense. Our culture conditions us to strive for a fictionally perfect aesthetic, encouraging women to go on cruel diets and undertake gruelling workouts, fooling us into believing our healthy, capable bodies will never be enough.
Every attendee will receive a complimentary Myodetox Performance Discovery Pass (7 days) and a 1 week class pass for Fit Squad classes!
