10 week Dynabody Full Muscle Activation Fitness Program

Join the 10 week Dynabody Full Muscle Activation Fitness Program! This is a moderate weight, high fatigue method that builds muscle fast and burns fat as it strengthens your joints.

The focus is on Dynamic POF’s - POSITIONS OF FLEXION  for optimal muscle stimulation.

There are three stages;

1) POF Multi-joint Midrange stimulus focusing on Mechanical Tension.

2) POF Continuous Dynamic Tension focusing on time under tension, with no lockout for Metabolic Stress and

3) POF Stretch -creating muscle microtears for growth.

The program includes;  20 Live Virtual Classes and access to the Trainerize App which allows for planned workouts, exercises and coaching directly on your smartphone or tablet anytime, anywhere. 

If you prefer just to show up for the Tuesday and Thursday evening Group Sessions, (without the Trainerize App) I have that available at a reduced rate.

Muscle growth is important for movement and  longevity. And, muscle size is not about the heaviest weights you can lift, it's about maximizing TOTAL fiber expansion and muscle Quality.  Growth requires muscle recovery not excess training which is the basis for this program.

 It’s tough to be active outside when it’s -20 below.  And sure, shovelling all that snow has made you fed up with winter, but hey, I would consider that exercise!  LOL.  Okay, all kidding aside, going outside and getting some exercise is not only a good way to keep the weight off, but helps boost your immune system and your mental health as well.  

And yes, there are a number of ways you can go out doors and beat those winter blahs.

So it’s time for a winter Adventure!

Going for a hike and enjoying nature is great for overall health.  We have many great trails both inside the city and in the nearby country that offer a great winter experience.  The best thing is it’s free!  And it really helps improve your mood.

Go for Skate.  There is no excuse for giving this a try.  Indoor and outdoor rinks, duck ponds and the river trail all give you a chance to lace up.  

Cross Country Skiing - gliding over the snow will get that heart-rate up and yet is easy on the joints.  We have a lot of groomed and ungroomed trails that will keep you going!

Snowshoeing - is similar to hiking but lets you go into deep snow areas.  The nice thing is that this is low-impact on the joints as the snow helps to cushion the impact.

Want something more challenging?

Downhill Skiing or Snowboarding is a great reason to get out and enjoy the day.  

Fat Biking - hopping on one of these all-terrain bikes is a great cardio workout. Although expensive to buy outright, rentals are usually available.

Whatever you choose, the important thing is to dress appropriately.

In Scandinavia, there is a saying:  “There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.”

The important thing is to Layer!   Each layer has a function;

Base layer  or underwear layer: wicks sweat off your skin

A Synthetic Base Layer like nylon or polyester is preferred, although a natural fabric like wool and bamboo could be used.

Middle layer is your insulating layer: retains body heat to protect you from the cold

Wool or fleece is great, whereas a down or synthetic jacket are also good options.

Outer layer or Shell: shields you from the elements - wind, rain, snow.

You can opt for Waterproof, Wind-resistant, etc.  There are a lot of options.

It’s always a good idea to wear all layers on every outing. You can take a layer off if you get hot,  but you can’t put on layers if they aren’t with you!

Don’t forget a hat and mitts.  You lose a lot of heat from your extremities and are accessible to frostbite.  I prefer mitts to gloves - keeping the fingers together help to retain some body heat.

Goggles and a neck warmer or scarf should be considered.


If you decide to go out for a country adventure it’s important to keep certain things in your car for an unexpected emergency.  Here a number of things to consider;

  • Water in an Insulated Thermos
  • Non-perishable foods like nuts, seeds and energy bars
  • Blanket or sleeping bag
  • Spare Clothing
  • Matches,  Candle, Flashlight
  • Hand and feet warmers
  • Notepad/paper and pencil
  • First Aid Kit
  • Small Shovel
  • Extra batteries, Portable Charger
  • Portable Battery Booster, Booster cables
  • Small tool kit
  • Full tank of gas

Even though the weather may be less than desirable, you can still make the best of it.

Planning in advance is always a good thing for a more challenging adventure.  Checking out the weather, packing the right equipment and layering, will all make your outdoor time a great experience.
