Thank you for becoming a member of Swanone. As a member of Swanone you can expect to be supported along your fitness journey to “wholeness” through education and one on one feedback. The science is conclusive; cardiovascular and strength training along with flexibility/range of motion, posture training and fascial release are essential components in the search for health and wellness. Health cannot be looked at as merely the absence of disease, but rather as a vital foundation necessary for us to reach our full potential and thrive in every aspect of our lives.
As a Clinical Exercise Physiologist and Kinesiologist Swanone training provides you with the opportunity to meet Canada’s national guidelines https://csepguidelines.ca/ Meeting these guidelines will ensure we are working toward eliminating/reducing our risk of all chronic illnesses (physical and mental), eliminating/reducing/managing chronic pain, and thriving at every stage of our lives.
In the last few years it has become abundantly clear that we must be responsible for our own health. Purchasing fitness equipment is an investment in your health and one investment I recommend! With good equipment and expert guidance you will be on the right track to realizing your goals.
Years of purchasing fitness equipment have brought me to recommend these suppliers. https://www.merrithew.com/ for Pilates balls, dynabands, toning balls, rolling balls, foam rollers, mats and much more
https://corefx.ca/ for resistance equipment, rubber strength bands, kettlebells, ankle and thigh resistance bands, aerobic step, and much more
https://treadmillfactory.ca/ TRX equipment, dumbbells, kettlebells, strength bands, dome trainers (BOSU), mats and much more.
