ACADEMY OF LIONS - RUN CREW PRESENTS: RUNLAB 2.0

COACH JENNY MC BREAKS DOWN THE RUNLAB AND HOW IT HAS AND WILL SET THE PATH FOR THE ROAD TO SCOTIA. 

Joining a community of people striving for similar goals makes it much easier to achieve them. With that in mind, RunLab was born. Through the Academy of Lions Run Crew, this past January we set forth a common goal and challenge for anyone who was up for it. We chose a race which allowed runners to choose from 5km, 10km, 21.1km and 42.2km distances and put forth a training program to help them reach their goals.

NATURE’S NOOTROPICS, AKA
BRAIN FOOD

ACADEMY'S NUTRITIONIST NATHALIE NIDDAM GIVES THE INSIDE SCOOP ON WHAT "BRAIN FOOD" WILL KEEP YOU ENERGIZED!

When it comes to “Brain Food” it’s a fact that your brain almost gets first dibs on pretty much everything you eat - you’ve likely heard this before - the brain is an energy pig.  It consumes 20% (!) of the energy used by your body…ever notice how you often get rosy cheeked when you’re concentrating really hard on something?  But the fact remains that not all foods are equal and this is especially true when we are fueling our all important Mega Processor.

FROM ICE CREAM TO 600KM'S

ACADEMY OF LIONS BLOGGER ASHLEY DIER SPEAKS WITH TWO OF ACADEMY'S MEMBERS WHO ARE BIKING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

How does going out for ice cream lead to a 600km bike ride from Toronto to Montreal?  For Academy of Lions members Kerri and Kelly, all it took was a little frozen dairy courage, friendly conversation and a local watering hole for everything to fall into place. When they headed out for ice cream last summer, neither Kerri nor Kelly, had any idea what they would agree to by sundown.

AMO'S 10 QUESTIONS: JESSICA DOYLE

ACADEMY'S FAVORITE MEMBER EXPERIENCE 10 QUESTIONS HAS HIT ANOTHER!

Having been a Lion for the last 3 Years, Jess is one of our most committed members. When she's not keeping our furry animal friends healthy with her job as a Vet, or traveling the globe discovering new cultures, she enjoys spending lots of time at the Academy of Lions building on her skills to better her physical capabilities..

MAKING PRIORITIES, MAKING YOURSELF THE PRIORITY -
BY: FRANCES YOUNG

PRIORITIZE YOURSELF WITH FRANCES YOUNG'S FIRST COACHES TIP

Humans. We are creatures of habit. We like routine. We watch the sun rise and set in the same way everyday; just as we find ourselves repeating the same motions in our lives, day after day. I am no stranger to this structure of life and schedule...
