WORK AND PLAY WITH MELANIE

I found the Academy a few months after moving to Toronto in 2014. I will be forever thankful to the article I read that listed the best gyms in the area in alphabetical order, because I had planned to visit 4 gyms that week. I stopped by the Academy for a class one Saturday and immediately fell in love with the space, the coaches, and the community.

VARBANOV OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING CERTIFICATION

The Level One Certification course is going to ensure you have the fundamental skills and understanding of the classic lifts. Many people practice Cleans, Snatches and Squats, but do not take their training further because of basic flaws in their technique and programming. The Varbanov's will help to make sure you are on the right track to hit your goals and teach you to coach others.

AGATSU MOBILITY FOR OLYMPIC LIFTING COURSE

As competitive weightlifters and personal trainers, Justin and Paluna attend seminars on a regular basis. In the past couple of years they noticed a pattern in all weightlifting and powerlifting courses. The material is 90% focused on lifting technique. This is great if you are an athlete without any mobility limitations but what happens when your progress is limited by the health of your joints? Wether you are a coach or an athlete, we will provide you with the tools to prepare the body for lifting as well as lifting technique itself.

CESAR vs CROSSFIT

I've always wanted to help people. But I didn’t always know exactly how. I knew I wanted to do something in the health science field but it wasn’t until I traveled for 3 months through South America that I decided to put my love for anatomy and physiology together with rehabilitation.

STAY HYDRATED WITH NATHALIE

As Summer (finally) kicks into full swing I thought it might be helpful to review the importance of hydration for our community of athletes. We often think about food but it is easy to forget about proper hydration - it can make a huge difference to both your performance and recovery.

LIONHEAD #102 | Lions Roar | Running With Mallory | Academy X Ossington Chiro | Finding A Home & More!

LIONS ROAR!

The Academy sent two teams to the TIDAL CrossFit Showdown last weekend! Check out the event recap photos! Congrats to both teams on competing and representing the Academy of Lions. Oh, did we mention one of our teams ranked #1 overall?

RUNNING WITH MALLORY

After trying one metcon class I was hooked. My concerns about fitting in disappeared instantly, everyone there was welcoming and had varying levels of fitness and skill. I discovered that the only person I had to compete against was myself.

SYDNEY: FINDING A HOME

I became immersed in the classes, the culture, but most of all - I found myself a part of a community again. This time though, the community was one that forced me to focus on myself, and on my goals as an individual - not as a part of a team. Before I knew it, I wasn’t just a member of the community, I was officially a part of the AOL Crew.
