CareerFit Mom 5-Year Anniversary Fundraiser – May 30
Wow, time sure does fly when you’re having fun! I reinvented my career when my twins were 2.5 years old. It was challenging to transition from stay-at-home mum to mom-preneur. Now my girls are 7.5 years old and very much used to my discussions about career development and seeing me practice my fitness moves in our kitchen!It is such an honour to work with so many amazing women in our community. I am grateful to all my past and present instructors, partners, mentors and clients! Thank you for your support.

It runs from 9:30 – 4:00 pm but you can spend as little or as much time as possible: it’s a big space so whatever contribution you can make is appreciated.

BOMB Fitness Health and Fitness Day – May 31
One of our missions when we first opened in 2012 was to always bring you the most modern and effective ways to train in a group atmosphere and in a one-on-one session. There’s been a gradual shift in the way training is done since then, and this health & fitness day will be the kick-start to a change in the way we run our training at The BOMB.
We’re also tired of the dated fitness garbage that is still being promoted, like static stretching before training is good for you, that people can just jump into a training program without being assessed. We’re tired of the notion that women shouldn’t lift weights and that you have to starve yourself to lose fat. We’re tired of the consensus that you have to look like a rake in order to be considered “healthy” and that a treat for your kid has to be a trip to a fast food restaurant.
On Saturday, May 31st 2014 we’ll host 5 hands-on seminars and talks to let you know the truth about leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
From getting your mind in the game, to preparing yourself to train correctly, to educating you and your family on how to exercise and eat right… it’ll be a fun, informative day and to top it all off even lunch is provided and an awesome sponsored goodie bag!
