Spring Programs (April 3 – June 30)
“Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better. “– Pat Riley –
Training in the spring unleashes athletic success for spring and summer sports and activities and builds strong training foundations for fall and winter.
Whether you are an elite athlete or just want to move better, feel better and improve your health, fitness and performance, our Move365 Fall Programs are built to help you achieve your goals.
All of our youth small group programs place an emphasis on coaching movement, strength, overall fitness & athleticism based on age, experience, and athletic goals. We strive to help each person learn, and excel in a fun, challenging small group environment.

Sessions are coached in small groups, with attention to individual needs. Each person has their own space to move, lift and learn as we aspire to inspire everyone to a lifelong appreciation for health and fitness and help them move better and perform better in their sport and/or in their daily life along the way.
The Move365 style of athletic training focuses on enhancing athleticism, building better movers, and forging better athletes and better performers. We are here to teach proper movement, to coach them to move better, and inspire them to move, every day.
All in-person sessions will take place inside our NEW Move365 training centre, now located at 104-114 Dundas Street East. The new training area is complete with a turf area for movement and speed development, sled work and an active sports area with synthetic ice and a netted area for hitting baseballs, golf balls etc.

80% of Success in Life is Showing Up!
What if we told you that you could improve your health, fitness and performance just by showing up?
We want to let you in on a little secret; getting better is easy. It does not have to be intimidating or stressful to train like an athlete. Athletes move athletically because they train athletically.
- We program every session
- We guide every progression
- We teach every movement
- We coach every drill (and make sure each one fits each person’s needs)
- We emphasize coaching, teaching and having fun!
Creating successful habits starts with consistency. Getting into a routine of healthy habits is the most important step to making it part of your lifestyle rather than a quick fix. Small group training builds a community of like-minded people focusing on the same tasks, it builds trust and relationships with your coaches and programming, it generates a positive energy, a more competitive atmosphere, and ultimately more results to reach your goals.
All you have to do is show up; and let us do the rest.
Show up for your teammates, show up for your family, show up for you. #ShowUp
By Jeff Roux B.P.E; CSCS
As we reach another new year it is the perfect time to re-boot, re-charge and re-focus on many areas of our lives. It is the perfect time to hit the re-set on all lifestyle habits that can have a negative impact on your physical and mental health and performance. Nutrition, sleep, exercise, and work/school-life balance all must be managed effectively in order to keep getting better every day. It the perfect time to establish a new routine and FOCUS on you!
Those who understand the importance of health and fitness understand that being more active and healthy when we are young allows us to handle more, physically and mentally, as we age than was previously thought. As more people understand the importance of holistic nutrition and purposeful, functional, athletic exercise we will continue to improve the outcomes of our health and performance as we age.
“If you have a body, you are an athlete.” – Bill Bowerman (coach, innovator, Nike co-founder) –
We believe everyone is an athlete, everyone can move more athletically, and everyone can benefit from taking a more athletic approach to their health, fitness and performance. This philosophy and purpose guides everything we do and allows us to help encourage our clients and athletes of all ages and skill levels to think, live and train like an athlete as well. This means setting goals, creating a program with purpose and practical application to each person’s sport or activities of choice and, most importantly to each person’s life. We must consider individual strengths and weaknesses, injuries and dysfunctions that may restrict certain movements, schedules and other limitations that may inhibit success.
Whether it is an athlete re-setting their off-season training program as a new season begins or an active adult starting (or re-starting) a new fitness program, the most important step is the first one. Find something that motivates you to get moving, stay moving and keep moving better.
Find Your Why!
The question that everyone must consider when performing any exercise or drill is simple, why? Why am I training? Am I preparing for a specific sport, am I trying to improve specific skills or improve physical limitations? Am I trying to be healthier and more active to be a better role model for my kids or am I just trying to be healthier and happier for me?
What is your why?
Once you know the big picture you can ask the same question when it comes to programming and the details of each specific training sessions and each specific exercise and movement pattern. Why am I choosing this particular exercise? Why am I doing a specific number of sets and repetitions? What is the purpose of each movement? Will it make me better, or just make me tired?
Anyone can train hard and push to or beyond their limits in a given training session. A true training program should always have a plan and a progression. High Intensity training programs are all the rage as they offer quick, efficient, challenging workouts and can be an excellent part of a training program if prescribed and progressed properly. They have a lot of sex appeal but often the intensity and effort of the workout supersedes the purpose, progression and performance efficiency? Not to mention the injury potential that exists when good technical execution is by-passed for those last few seconds or reps. Following a purposeful, progressive program that has a specific objective, a planned progression and ongoing correction and evaluation will always result in more long-term success than random acts of exercise.
The Secret Recipe for Athletic Performance
Quality movement is the root of athletic excellence. It is also the key to optimal health, fitness and performance. No matter how fast, how strong or how fit you are, if there are flaws in your movement patterns, inefficiencies or dysfunction anywhere on the movement spectrum, it can lead to poor performance in your sport or your life, or to potential injury. We want to build better movers, better athletes and better performers. We are here to teach and refine movement, to inspire people to move, to coach them to move better, and motivate them to move every day.
There is a lot more to efficient, effective athletic performance than simply pushing physical limits before the proper technical skill is learned. I’ll let you in on a little secret. Training the muscles is easy. Training hard is easy. Training often is easy. Training Smart; learning HOW to move properly and creating quality movement patterns is the hard part. This includes everything from establishing an efficient running gait, learning to stickhandle and shoot on the ice, and perfecting your tennis serve, to learning how to decelerate and change direction on the soccer pitch, and how to properly squat in the weight room.
The brain learns movement patterns quickly and it learns bad ones just as fast, and sometimes even faster, than good ones because dysfunctional movement patterns offer shortcuts and allow the brain to simply hide other dysfunctions that have occurred from injury, mobility restrictions or other inefficient patterns that have already been learned poorly.
Move, every day
As individuals get older, move less, sit more and spend more time ensuring the kids make it to their practices and games than making time for their own strength and conditioning, the ability to move well is inhibited. Injuries and movement dysfunctions begin to settle in and many people put off finding ways to get moving well again. Typical gym programs promote stepping on a specific machine (Treadmill, Elliptical, bike etc.) and heading down the road to nowhere on machines that do most of the work. People need to actually move in order to move better. Improving athletic mobility, maximizing joint stability and enhancing the ability to run, jump, skate, ski, hike, garden, and just play with your kids comes from moving more and moving better.
Whether you are an elite athlete or a stay at home mom, everyone can benefit from moving better. Movement is simply about taking muscles through a full, functional range of motion and expanding that range of motion. It is about stabilizing the joints to handle deceleration and direction changes without injury. It is about developing explosive muscle firing patterns to accelerate quickly and change gears efficiently. It is about developing a variety of energy systems from short burst anaerobic to long duration endurance. Movement challenges your body to stop and go and challenges your heart and lungs to adapt to a variety of conditioning intervals and intensities. Improving you movement will help you perform better in sport and in life.
It is exciting to see strength training growing in popularity over the past few years and to see adults getting excited about getting stronger. One thing that people must realize when it comes to training strength is that moving load is in itself a movement skill and there are many elements that must come together to execute strength training technique besides moving weight up and down. If you cannot perform a movement properly in the first place and you load it and try to move it when it is heavier, injury is inevitable. Athletes must be able to execute proper movement patterns and muscle firing patterns in order to get stronger. People often love training the beach muscles (arms & chest) but don’t spend enough time training the stabilizer muscles (Core, Shoulder girdle, hamstrings, Upper back) that support and leverage athletic movement and protect the body from injury. First, learn to move the load properly, only then you can load, lift and challenge the movement in different ways.
No matter how hard you work, recovery is when the magic happens. Getting enough rest, getting enough sleep and fueling your cells with proper nutrition and hydration help maximize digestion and allow enzymes, hormones and all of the organs in your body run efficiently. This is what allows us to adapt to exercise, deal with stress and continue to improve our health and fitness as we age. You can’t outwork poor nutrition or poor sleep patterns. This is when the body adapts, re-charges and gets better.
No diet, lifestyle changes, or training program will work for the long term if it is done is short doses. Our bodies and our brains crave routine and function best when we have consistency in our patterns of exercise, sleep and nutrition. Developing a purposeful and consistent routine that works for you, allows our systems to stabilize and focus on performing at the highest level possible every day. When this happens health and performance will take care of themselves and we can focus more on being in the moment, having fun and enjoying the journey along the way.
This year as we kick off 2020, focus on finding the routine and lifestyle habits that fit your needs, help you reach your goals, energize and inspire you to move, every day. This year, focus on you!
