As the New Year is upon us I thought I would revisit the 5 Pillars of Health we follow here at the studio. Fads are fun, but if you don’t have the foundation set, they are of no use. So, check out our 5 Pillars and prioritize those before you add something new....
1) CONSISTENT MOVEMENT. Want to feel better, be smarter, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. As human beings we are meant to move every day, in a variety of different ways. Find ways to move that you enjoy and that challenge...
I want to emphasize the importance of maintaining your STRENGTH with resistance training. You need to LIFT HEAVY THINGS on a regular basis. (If you didn’t read last weeks newsletter I would encourage you to. Prior to lifting heavy things you need to have...
Last week I addressed the challenges of nutrition advise, and the chaotic nature of nutritional science. But if there was one piece of advise that was pretty universally accepted as being as close to a fact as possible when it comes to eating for longevity it was...
We use our muscles every day—from the top of our head to the tips of our toes if we are lucky—for the smallest and the biggest tasks. Muscles make up an impressive 45% of our body mass. But did you know that muscle is an endocrine organ and regulates metabolism? Did...
Absolutely, definitely, positively stretch after your walks…Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and...
I have always been a bit nervous about... working out and so for 67 years avoided gyms altogether. That is until I realized I needed to move before I couldn't any more. As soon as I entered this studio I knew I had found the perfect place for me. I was immediately greeted by all the staff and the members and made to feel SO comfortable. This place is the real deal. I am now in the best shape of my life and would never go back to couch potato status again!read more
I’ve been wanting to review Roseland ... Health & Fitness for quite a while. Unfortunately I let procrastination stop me. Today when I read Christine’s newsletter I decided to take action!This gym has been an amazing place for me. I suffer from psoriatic arthritis and I am on a Biological Medicine to treat this. The trainers at Roseland Health and Fitness have kept me mobile especially over the last 21 months of Covid. Without their dedicated help my mobility would’ve been greatly reduced and my pain would’ve been increased. Christine, Claire and Anna have all helped me with their own professional expertiseI now can play tennis on a regular basis as long as I continue to go to the gym and practice the mobility exercises. I have never been hurt working out with these fantastic women!When I fractured my right arm after a fall shortly after retiring these ladies got me back and listened patiently to my complaints with a smile.Despite their own challenges with Covid on their gym they continue to give to the community in numerous ways. More recently they provided over 40 presents to a retirement home and seniors who may otherwise have been forgotten.They have also helped me with my fundraising activities for the labour and delivery ward at Joseph Brant Hospital . There are other numerous community events that they sponsor.The trainers lead with their heart and make each and every member feel special.I am so very grateful to these professionals and to this organization.Dr. Jane E McDonaldread more

In the intensity of lockdown, I made a... change: a commitment to my health, a resolve to get in shape. I called Roseland fitness.

At least Christine and Claire put the abs in abnormal.Sarah Brodieread more

I can't say enough about this fitness... studio. I was first introduced to it when my massage therapist Derek told me he was moving and said if I was interested in following him to his new location, to look him up. So I did and when walking through the studio to get to my massage, I couldn't help but check out what was available to help me improve my fitness level.And voila, I was assigned to Susan Stuart and the rest is history. I've been now going to this studio for well over a year, and what I love the absolute most is that it's a great fitness place without the cold and impersonal feel of a large gym or fitness facility. Plus you can bet there is no one flexing his muscles in the mirror and taking selfies!I can't say enough about Claire and Christine, the owners. 2 very special people who are so very passionate about their work, their services and their studio.This place is Fun, Friendly and Fitness all combined into one.read more
