The First Time... A lot of our people tell us that it took them months, maybe even years to walk through the door. We often hear this from our most loyal members who workout here 4 or more days a week now.  We make excuses to keep us away from the things we want. Eventually, we get it and walk through that door. But why did we hesitate in taking that first step?  Imagine how much better things would be if we did it sooner?  Time is the only non-renewable resource. Why waste it by not doing…

Over the next few weeks we'll explore the concept of "sweat together, stay  together" through the relationships of Academy members. In 2 Can Do It, I  discussed the advantages of working out with a partner - forces you to work  harder, provides social support, helps you celebrate your success, with  these concepts in mind I spoke with Cam Gillmoure and Rachel Palen -  partners in the gym and life.

What the hell is going on with my footstrike?! Hands down the best decision I made this cycle was to have someone look at my running form. There are a few ways to do this but I chose to do the runstrong workshop @academyoflions. They gave me great tips on posture, footstrike and cadence and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It was also not the Pose Method, which I hate. Thanks @jenny_mc and @dhanioks !! ( @misterhawaii) #runstrong #nottheposemethod #90bpm #clownonaunicycle…

She’s one of the amazing Social Committee (SoComm) members, she has participated in many competitions inside and  outside the Academy and when she’s not competing, she’s on the front-lines cheering fellow Lions on.
