Over 40% of Canadians are at high risk of developing mental health issues ranging from stress to depression. Millennials, women, and low-income earners are at greatest risk. LGBTQ+ individuals face a much larger risk due to socio-economic factors such as discrimination (e.g. employment), violence (e.g. physical assault), accessibility (e.g. health services), and inclusion (e.g. community acceptance). That’s why ArtsFitness is here to provide a safe space where your individual fitness needs are addressed in a respectful non-judgmental way.
Stress management consists of emotional health, spiritual health, and physical health. Physical health, specifically, involves understanding the difference between flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular training.
FST, for instance, is a manual therapy that addresses Flexibility by releasing connective tissue known as fascia (e.g. not bone or blood) surrounding muscle so you can move better, feeling like you are walking on a cloud. TriggerPoint Therapy is a self-directed version of the above, using tools to achieve a similar result. With an increased range of motion, enhanced body awareness and improved sense of wellness, it becomes easier to tackle Strength Training (e.g. dumbbells) and Cardiovascular Training (e.g. HIIT) using bodyweight and the appropriate equipment. I am incredibly excited to help navigate this journey. Let’s get moving!
