Switch it up: A lower body circuit workout!

Hey everyone,

We have decided to go back to upper and lower body split workouts, after trying full body workouts for over a month.  While full body workouts were a refreshing change, we felt we could only really do them every second day to allow for sufficient recovery time.  There is a bit more flexibility in timing with the split workouts, however, where we can do back-to-back workouts depending on our schedules.

Caribbean Workout #3

Hey everyone,

For our third Caribbean Workout, we decided to change things up a bit and try a Tabata Workout.  Tabata is a very efficient, yet challenging way to workout.  After this quick workout, we headed back out into the sun...

Caribbean Workout #2

Hey everyone,

Here is the second of our travel workouts we did in the Turks & Caicos.  Again, we used a time-based workout, completing each exercise for 5 minutes, with 2 minutes rest between each exercise.

Scuba Diving - A New Fitness Challenge!

Hey everyone,

During our recent trip to the Turks & Caicos, we decided to spend some of our time scuba diving!
Tannys had never tried scuba diving and Alex had previously been PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) Open Water diver-certified in the past, but it had been several years since he had gone.  So, we both completed the Open Water Diver certification together.

Caribbean Workout #1

Hey everyone,

While we were away in Turks & Caicos, we made sure to fit in a few workouts.  While there was not a huge selection of equipment in our resort's gym, we were easily able to put together some full body workouts using dumbbells and a cable machine.  All of our workouts were full body and time-based, so we could get them done and head back out into the sun!

Hey everyone,

We came across a recent article published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal that we thought would be of interest to you.  This article looked at healthy behaviours that can increase the odds of aging successfully.
