Hello paddlers! For those of you who don't know, I am a personal trainer and owner/operator of Alter Ego Fitness Experience. I am certified to instruct clients in small groups and I have been working out with clients since I started my business 9 years ago. My bootcamps run 4 to 6 weeks in duration and my next bootcamp starts April 3rd. For those of you wanting the help and eagle eyes of a personal trainer but cannot afford the luxury of one on one, this is the perfect way to get fit safely and effectively. I have included a link to my website and my business facebook page. Please check it out. As we gear up for longer and more endurance type paddling, having the muscular strength to be able to go the distance is imperative. It will also make it easier to accomplish the distance! If you don't want to join the bootcamp option, don't worry. I strongly believe that every body needs what works for them. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me. But may I suggest that you like the Alter Ego Fitness Experience Facebook page to get all kinds of useful tips around exercise and nutrition. http://alteregofitness.ca/ and https://www.facebook.com/AlterEgoFitnessExperienc e/

Also, I am a certified YogaFit instructor and have been able to secure an indoor location for a group of (YOU) to stretch that body after your long paddle practises on Saturdays in Vic West! We all need to stay flexible and we all need to stretch on a regular basis so what I would like to offer paddlers is the type of yogafit practise that focuses on what paddlers NEED for their flexibility to be the best they can be in the boat. Yes, there will be strength (all yoga has strength) and as the group works together, we can evolve the yogafit practise. If you are interested in joining me for this every Saturday (or do it as a drop in), please let me know so I can book the space. The cost will be $8.00 if you sign up for 6 Saturdays and $15.00 if you do a drop in basis. This is NOT bootcamp but yogafit and will be sometime after 2 pm on Saturdays in Vic West across from the Vic West Community Centre. See you all Saturday on the dock!
