CareerFit Mom 5-Year Anniversary Fundraiser – May 30

A note from owner, Beth: 
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.  I’m looking forward to many more years of facilitating your fitness, health and professional goals while connecting you to a broader network of powerful women.
Please join me in my celebrations at an upcoming Workout and Sweaty Social for Charity!

Woodbine-Gerrard Underpass Garden – Volunteers needed May 31 and June 1

Our neighbours to the south in the Beach Hill Association have teamed up with the Greening Ward 32 folks and the City to plant a garden just south of the tracks. Since this is where our two residents’ associations meet, it would be great if some DECA green thumbs were also able to join in on this great project.  Here are the details:
  • VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Saturday’s focus (May 31) is digging and planting shrubs, trees & small plants. Sunday (June 1) will involve planting perennials and spreading mulch. 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.
  • Please: wear safe shoes, bring water, sunscreen, a hat and any relevant tools you have (they’ll have extras). A light lunch will be available but refreshments can be purchased close by on Gerrard as well.
  • For more info, please contact Eleanor Nielsen at eleanor.nielsen@sympatico.ca

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!
