04/28/19 Fitness by Jacflash and Fit Squad's Fitness Workshop with Miranda Popen

This Sunday Fitness by Jacflash had a blast working out with Fit Squad at Myodetox Performance!

Our amazing sponsors tomorrow include BIO RAW, Mid-day squares, Remedy Kombucha, Rawcology, True Glue and True Lashes, Beth and Olivia and Organic Traditions.

We were also excited to introduce our speaker for this workshop, wellness creator, Miranda Popen. Miranda is a Tier 3 trainer at Equinox and was a professional figure skater who rode the diet roller coaster hoping to get that “perfect body”. She is passionate about helping women discover how they feel internally and how they move externally through nutrition, fitness, lifestyle and self care.

Our workout was then lead by Jennifer Lau from Fit Squad, a personal training and small group fitness training company located in downtown Toronto. Fit Squad is committed to delivering result-based training by bringing an unparalleled experience through a leading-edge methodology and exceptional coaching.

There's a new wave of weightlifting underway–and this time around, it includes women. What was once mostly reserved as a workout for men, has now made its way into the general health and wellness scene, with women in particular taking up an interest in strength-training to supplement their exercise routines. Even though weightlifting is recommended as integral to any adult's daily workout routine, women have rarely been pegged as weightlifters. Now, with a more mind-body approach, weightlifting is back on the radar for wellness enthusiasts everywhere. As women living in today's society, the pressure to live up to an unattainable standard of beauty has never been more intense. Our culture conditions us to strive for a fictionally perfect aesthetic, encouraging women to go on cruel diets and undertake gruelling workouts, fooling us into believing our healthy, capable bodies will never be enough.

We were also thankful to have Jake from Mid-Day Squares talk to us about their Montreal founded, raw superfood squares!

Spaces By Jacflash transforms Youtube star Ask Kimberly, Kimberly Moffit's living and dining room into a traditional yet chic space for her and her family

Spaces By Jacflash transformed Youtube star Ask Kimberly, Kimberly Moffit's living and dining room into a traditional yet chic space for her and her family.

Prior to Kimberly's Spaces by Jacflash's makeover, she had her old condo furniture throughout the room. This Matching, beige leather set which had no real theme, added no warmth and did not quite fit the space. 

We then chose a traditional, bright and glamorous style. We did this by bringing in different metallics to add glamour as well as add different textures with  throw pillows.

We also added brass console tables on either side of the fireplace.

We swapped out her old leather sofa with a lavish, velvet, cream, tufted sofa.

And layered two rugs to add more depth and warmth to the space.

Instead of a coffee table, we opted for a large ottoman that opens for storage.

And took a basic storage unit and jazzed it up with brass, bone handles for her daughter's toy storage.

In the dining room, we used her table and chair set and tied in the acrylic from the tray on the ottoman with the acrylic legs on the dining room bench.

We finally swapped out the rustic chandelier for the brass sputnik pendant to add charm into the space.

We had so much fun working on this project with Kimberly and her family, look out for our youtube video on the entire process in the next couple of days!
