Rather than stay in side all winter, why not get out and embrace the winter snow by learning how to snowshoe with Personal Best. Snow-shoeing can be done by anyone. Fitter people can run through the snow, while less fit people can power-walk with the snowshoes on. These snowshoes allow you to stay on top of the snow and go anywhere, regardless of whether there is a trail, road or simply an open snow covered field. Many Personal Best friends, family and clients have started snowshoeing and are loving this low-impact, easy to do, fat-burning exercise. The Team at Personal Best team have created a low-cost (bare-bones), fun endurance activity that anyone can do. We have a shorter distance and a longer distance event. Finally to get more people involved, we have added a relay division where you can have one person run and one person snowshoe.
A NEW SEASON OF YORK UNIVERSITY RUNNING IS UPON US
Continuing on a Personal Best Tradition York University Running will start again this year on October 14th and continue until the end of April. Running indoors over the winter is a great way to mix it up and get a chance to run in shorts in a group atmosphere. Get the speed work you need and not have to worry about slipping on ice or freezing your fingers and toes off. The workouts are created and run by Steve Karlsson, Personal Best High Performance Coach along with special guest coaches throughout the season.
Also included in the price will be the core and Yoga class directly following the run. This will be lead by Tara Karlsson a 15 year instructor, but will also be lead by other coaches from Personal Best on certain weeks to keep it different and changing.
The York Track is located at the Keele Campus and is called the Toronto Track and Field Center.
PB Webcycle November 2014 to April 2015
Season 4 Starts November 5, 2014
A position on the bike that works for your body is essential for comfort, and can be optimized for aerobic and aerodynamic performance, as well as injury prevention. At PB we utilize motion capture video to record and analyze your bike position and to extract various body angles . With this data in hand we utilize our experience, and compare against industry norms in a combined approach to refine your position. And since optimal bike fit is about more than just angles, we spend a lot of time working with you to incorporate information about your goals, your strengths and weaknesses, flexibility and biomechanical characteristics, and of course, how you ride. When completed, you'll have a riding position that maximizes your power and comfort.
Bike fitting is not only for when you purchase a new bike but also benefits a rider as we age and our body changes. So consider a fit every two to three years, whenever you change bikes, and especially if you are experiencing discomfort.
Time: 1.5 - 2.0 hrs
PB 2014/15 Swim Team Season
Entering it’s 4th season we are excited to continue to build on the success of the swim team. Head Coach Sean Bechtel, one of Canada’s top Triathlon swimmers, looks to build on the program with new ideas and strategies that will lead to even better results. With options of 1-2 or 3 swims a week we can tailor the program to best fit your swimming needs.
Sean Bechtel took me from swimming in the middle of the pack to the front of pack! I literally took more than 20 sec per 100m off of my time in the two years I've been coached by him. Thank you Sean!
An often overlooked aspect of training is knowing how much effort is needed for certain intervals or workouts. As is often the case in all our busy lives we want to maximize our training time to be the most efficient we can. Having the right combination of easy and hard workouts is the best way to do this, however it is a lot harder to achieve the right efforts without the knowledge of your training zone. Personal Best uses a series of tests for cycling and running so we can accurately determine training zones. You can then measure your efforts and be certain you worked at an effort prescribed by the coach. We believe testing is the best way we can help you achieve your goals for each workout and inevitably your ultimate goal, whatever it may be.
