Posted by POUND – Rockout. Workout. on Tuesday, September 29, 2020

I am planning on following the PoundFit version of Rocktober and adding in some Guided Fitness style twists. So make sure you are following Guided Fitness on:

Be sure to share your 30 minutes of movements on social media with the hashtag #RocktoberChallenge. I have also created a check-in for us Guided Fitness folks: Check In. I am super excited to see what people do over the next 15 days! My goal is to write about my daily movements here, and check in on my social channels. Be on the look out for some free classes during this time, I will share some of my workouts with you.

I cannot think of a better way to tackle the current Red Zone status of Montreal (okay, yeah, we all can, but this one is probably healthier than the 40 oz of gin I want to consume for the next 28 days)! Let’s get moving together, let’s find some sort of positivity in this current climate! We can find some fun, I can feel it.

Family Fitness During Rocktober

I would like to get kids and parents involved as well. 30 minutes of movement will be great for their physical and mental health during this time. So, please, encourage them to jump around with you!

See you tomorrow,

Nicole

Self Defense Workshop January 2020

A Women’s Self Defense Workshop? For real?

Exciting times are upon us. My health coming back to normal (tranquillement pas vite but still in the right direction) means that I am ready to add some new projects on my 2020 calendar.

I am teaming up (as usual) with V-Fit P.R.O. to bring this amazing Self Defense workshop into fruition on January 26th, 2020. We have been discussing it for quite some time and the decision is to finally bring it to you in the New Year. Enjoy learning, discussion, practicing self defense in a safe space.

Can you think of a better way to start the New Year off than with a workshop that will exercise both mind and body, while learning how to protect yourself and, potentially others? I mean, seriously?! How amazing is that.

The details and schedule for self defense workshop are still being hammered out. We want to make sure you have the best training possible especially since you are giving up your Sunday! We know there will be a lunch break and there will be specific topics discussed. The best aspect to the training will be the hands on or simulation portion where we test out our newly acquired skills in simulated environments. All while knowing you are in a safe space.

Topics covered in our Self Defense Workshop

  • Prevention and Safety
  • Common Attacks
  • Simulations
  • Tools for defense and attack
  • Awareness
  • Empowerment
  • Woman specific safety issues
  • And more…

Many topics will be addressed and changes and/or additions will be visible immediately on the Facebook event page.

How do I register?

You can send an email, call, text, either myself or Shihan Taddeo. (438) 398-9208 nic.ryans@gmail.com.

Also be sure to announce your interest on our Facebook event!

I’m a man, can I join too?

I am sorry at this time we will not be allowing men into this workshop. We want the women to be free to experience their training without any influence. HOWEVER, should there be enough interest, we will offer a gender open workshop in the future, please let us know your interest.

POUND and Pour Before Christmas Event

Oh, yes, my friends, it is that time of year again where Christmas songs are playing continuously in any public place and there is an overabundance of lights, shinny things and food… While some people may love that, some of us, not so much… BUT for one night, let’s get super into it. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you have to admit, hitting things with Ripstix while Christmas songs are playing will be incredibly satisfying. So mark your calendars, and let’s do this: Join us for an end of the year celebration.

When is it?

December 19th starting at 8PM, ending at…

Where is it?

At V-Fit P.R.O. 10 Milner, Montreal West.

What can we expect?

  • A Christmas playlist, just about every song is Christmas related…
  • Some ugly, holiday sweaters, because why not?
  • Holiday treats, both healthy and less healthy.
  • An awesome time, with sweating, conversation, and just JOY and stuff…

What’s the “Pour” for?

Pouring eggnog ๐Ÿ™‚ And various other pourable liquids ๐Ÿ˜‰

See you there,

Nic
