The CommUNITY CLASS

THE END IS JUST THE BEGINNING, AGAIN...


As many members of our community already are aware, a very successful partnership with NIKE has officially come to an end. We are proud to have worked with them over the last few years to help introduce so many people to great fitness, health & values. 

It's very important for Academy to keep the amazing community we helped spark, through NTC, together while also introducing more people to the benefits of FUNCTIONAL FITNESS & INTERVAL TRAINING. 

CommUNITY CLASS is our way to break down the barriers to health, fitness & positive relationships.
This class is FREE, FUN & FUNCTIONAL. No Strings attached.

PRESS & RELEASE

BLOG POST BY DHANI OKS /  NIKE & DRIVING FORWARD


"The best relationships are always rocky. 

You don’t get anywhere by not fighting for what you believe in. Sometimes you’re on the same team and sometimes not. The important thing is to always keep driving forward.

We had an incredible 3 plus year relationship with Nike. In that time, more people..."

#inthis2gether PROJECT

WE DON'T GET ANYWHERE WITHOUT KNOWING WHERE WE'RE GOING. AND WE DEFINITELY CAN'T DO IT ALONE.

The #inthis2gether Project is about setting a reachable goal for 2016 and welcoming the support of friends & community. 

DARE 2 DECLARE: Simply writing something down makes it real. Humans are masters of turning imagination into physical realities. And it all starts by making something unreal REAL. 

By putting it out there, online and on the wall, you will be doing about 90% of the work...

DOING COUNTERINTUITIVE THINGS

ALTAIRA NORTHE'S INCREDIBLE PERSONAL & HONEST POST-WORKOUT MOMENT


"Under usual circumstances, I am very careful about balancing my life so that I can mitigate the negative effects of these mental health issues. But over the winter, I was unemployed, and broke, I let my gym membership lapse, I got a month long severe sinus cold – which further interfered with seeing friends and physical activity – and I fell into a depression.

For me, and I’m sure for many people, my anxiety and..."

Community is everything at the #academyoflions.
Here we give a shout out to some great posts.
palunamoves Low bar squats slowly catching up to my high bar numbers. Considering I'm belt-less, spot-less and I find this type of squat awkward and scary as hell I think should be proud of today.
instapatzi This was maybe one of the best weeks ever. (I could say that every week, but.) #TightMoves Tackled Destiny’s Child and all the sassy-ness that is SAY MY NAME. Thank you for the bottom of my dancing heart to those that came. I LOOOVE My tight moves crew. 
anthonynsmith I am so happy to be a part of the AOL community, today I double dipped into the run club and a really fun circuit training class. If you are looking to have fun, get fit and make rad new friends I HIGHLY suggest you ask me about this place... It is kind of magical. They offer 4 FREE classes a week, plus a wicked free run club.
coach_richmond Great crew that came out to the Intro to Pull Ups and Handstands! May you all go above and beyond towards your goals! #academyoflions #inthis2gether #noSASScrew

COLD CREW

SKIS ARE FOR SUCKERS

There's no snow in Toronto, so it's a good thing the Academy team knew where to find some.

Sure, it was chilly and slippery out there, but when you have great team to support and keep you cozy with a warm spirit then you can't go wrong.

Thank you to everyone who participated and everyone who shared a #lionscheer!
