Heather McIntyre’s Amazing Transformation!

BeforeAfter_HeatherMcIntyre

Six months ago I would have laughed at the thought of being even remotely fit, let alone writing a blog about my journey of getting there. I was moderately active growing up and in college I rode a stationary bike often enough to balance out the beer I drank. It was the years following post-secondary when the wheels fell off.  I immersed myself in my career, as many do, and fell victim to the most overused excuse: I was “too busy” to exercise, too busy to cook, too busy to sleep. I fuelled … [Read more...]

Edmonton Police Recruit For A Day

Chris Tse Edmonton Police Recruit Day

I had the privilege of being a part of the Edmonton Police Service's (EPS) recruitment class for a day to experience some of the extensive training that they bring their candidates through.  This is one of the first times that the EPS has opened up portions of their practices to the public so I jumped at the chance to do it.  This profession is one of the most selfless ones you can get into and it was an honour to get up close and personal with the trainers, canine handlers and some of the … [Read more...]

It's been a whirlwind 2014 so far. Half the year has flown by and we've been a little remiss at updating you all on our first official global project that Sid chatted about a few months ago in his blog. We have still been working like crazy to get all of the details ironed out including the team and travel details but I'm excited to be a part of this inspiring team. Most of our team had a chance to meet up this weekend for the first time and as always with our community we're a diverse group … [Read more...]

Top 5 Things I’ve Learned After 10 Years in the Fitness Industry

Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself.

A weird reminder popped up on my calendar this week telling me that I've been in the fitness industry for 10 years as of 2014.  Professionally it's been a hell of a ride from working at front desks, to moonlighting and training in small gyms while working full time, and finally co-ownership of this amazing community we call Blitz. Life has changed a lot and as I reflect on the changes in the industry it feels like it has too. We've moved from bootcamps, to Zumba, to Crossfit to H.I.I.T. and then … [Read more...]
