Nutrition tip: washing produce

For some people washing produce is an unconscious first step in their meal prep, but for others it’s not even considered, particularly when meal prep is rushed due to a busy lifestyle (work, kids, etc.). It is, however, very important to take the time to wash your produce (veggies and fruits) thoroughly to avoid food-borne illnesses, and wash away any residue that could have been left by pesticides.1

Client Testimonial – Elke

I have been training at Body & Soul for over 15 years and even persuaded my husband to join as well – we both enjoy the environment, the knowledge of the trainers and the front desk staff. The trainers always find new ways to keep us on our toes and adjust the training to our needs. I highly recommend Body &Soul.”

Fitness Tip: Single-arm Row

This exercise is a compound movement as it’s targeting more than one muscle group. The single-arm row exercise targets a lot of the posterior chain but mainly the latissimus dorsi (lats) and it also targets the biceps and shoulders.

The main issue people have while performing this exercise is having their back hunched over, with rounded shoulders. It’s important to have a straight back with head in line and shoulders back. * For this exercise a bench and dumbbell are required.

Rolfing® Structural Integration

We are excited to welcome Brent and Mónica (Hill and Sky Rolfing®) to the Body & Soul team!

Rolfing® Structural Integration, developed by biochemist Dr. Ida Rolf, aims to restore the structure of the body to a better state of balance in gravity. This is key to maintaining health and directly impacts mobility and performance.

Rolfers™ combine manual touch with anatomical movements to release tight tissue and stiffened joints. To ensure lasting results, they aim to re-educate movement patterns and compensation strategies that prolong pain. If you are managing pain, recovering from injury, looking for more energy and flexibility, or interested in optimizing your body awareness, Rolfing SI may be for you.
