"The key to maintaining or regaining our health, is taking responsibility and initiative."
Where we are working to revolutionize the way the world thinks about their health; one person at a time. We believe in the concept of self-care and that in order to regain or maintain our health and preserve the integrity of our healthcare system, we must become more responsible for ourselves.
Our Barbell Clinic runs on Sundays for 4-8 weeks at a time, from 10:00am - 11:00am at Training Foundation in Okotoks, Alberta.
The intention of the clinic is to provide women with a safe space to learn and practice their "Barbell Skills" alongside other like-minded women. This is an incredible opportunity to become part of a community and to take your training to the next level while on the quest to become stronger, healthier and more resilient.
Scheduled Clinic Dates for 2022:
March 6th - 27th
Oct 16th - Dec 4th
If you are fairly new to lifting or are interested in learning how to lift and follow a program, this clinic was designed with you in mind. In this clinic you will learn about the importance of building muscle mass for the purpose of slowing down the aging process, preventing chronic disease associated with aging as well as achieving long term health. Of course, you will also learn proper lifting technique, how to fuel your muscle growth and how to constructively measure progress without a scale.
Our clinics are currently offered at the Training Foundation located at Unit B, 101 Fisher Street, Okotoks, Alberta.
At the Functional Health Initiative we strive to educate women about the importance of developing and/or maintaining a healthy body composition; one that focuses on muscle mass and bone density.
We want women to stop focusing on the scale and start focusing on building muscle mass, maintaining bone density and improving body composition to ensure physical resilience with age.
Perimenopause and the early stages of menopause are considered to be a critical window for women's health. This is a sensitive period of time during which small health problems, if left unaddressed, can amplify into larger more permanent health problems down the road. Entering a state of physiological flux makes us vulnerable to the onset of new health conditions.
Fortunately, this "tipping point" is also considered a "window of opportunity" for prevention. When we understand how our body is adjusting to this physiological flux, we provide ourselves with the opportunity to make appropriate lifestyle adjustments and help to ensure we continue to remain resilient and disease free.
