5 Minutes with Meg: Surprises

I've been thinking a lot about...the power of the unexpected. We spend - I think - too much time focused on the future and not enough time engaged in the journey. There's lots of evidence to suggest living more of your life in the moment leads to a richer, healthier, more fulfilled life. But I digress.

I've been thinking a lot about...your heart.

The muscle. The sentiment. And how high intensity interval training positively impacts both. Many love to lift... many love to go for long runs... dance like no one's watching... But how often do we ensure we're driving our heart rate up high enough that we can't sustain the pace for longer than 30-90 seconds?

A Mom's Journey Back to the Gym

After having kids, Jessica, an actuary in downtown Toronto, realized, like many other parents, that she never had "me" time in the evenings and wanted to get back into the gym. So, she returned to the Adelaide Club in 2017, adding midday workouts to her schedule. Originally drawn to the Club because of its stellar downtown location, she has stayed because of the Club's wonderful Members, finding a great under and over 30 crowd to connect with.

We have an unfriendly term in my industry called "Expectancy Violation". It describes the phenomena of people having expectations about what exercising will do for them, and then those expectations are not realized. The research indicates that this is common: people begin an exercise program with mad hopes and dreams, and when things don't go quite right, they get frustrated, grow despondent, and give up.
