Performance Institute is hosting the 3rd Annual Human Combine here at Burnaby 8 Rinks on June 9th!

Inspiration comes from the most random of places.

I've been working at home, like a hermit for the past few months and today I assisted my partner Sam Chua : Image Creator on a shoot at the local ice skating facility, literally down the street from my home. This is the place where I shot sports for the first time ever, indoor soccer in the lowest crappiest lighting known to man with an incredibly crappy lens and Canon Rebel. I didn't even know what an F stop was.

Today, I wasn't the most productive assistant as he was shooting the folk at Performance Institute, I was too distracted by watching some of Canada's top figure skater pairs train for the upcoming Nationals.

I couldn't take my eyes off the gracefulness, the flow lines, the elegance of how they make years of skill practice look easy. I was drawn into the coordination of moves with the music. The partnerships, the trainers, the need to smile your way through it.

It's very similar to watching horses and their riders work together.

I would love to spend time photographing them to get a better understanding of movement, timing, hard work.

Where have you found inspiration when you least expected it?

(pic is from years ago..)
Just wanted to thank the PI and my trainer Nathan who was exceptional in his instructions and patience working with me, even if he is very good at inflicting pain. Just kidding. No pain no results. Love the place
This is me training hard with Steve Ramsbottom from Performance Institute for two upcoming tournaments!! Thanks, Steve!

Sore back? Try this stretch either kneeling or standing and make sure to elongate every stretch on your thoracic spine. Take a break from working and do about 8-10 reps on each side, especially if you have been sitting for prolonged periods of time.

Additionally this is a great exercise to add into your warm up routine!

happy Thursday!

MARCH 1st. You know what to do.

What is D2S?
This program isn't just about losing inches and weight.

It's about getting lean.

Our "Drop Two Sizes Challenge" provides you with a fat loss program and nutrition guidance designed to get you down at least two jean sizes in only EIGHT WEEKS.

We've figured out how to help you lose two jean sizes in only eight weeks without having to starve yourself or having to work out six days a week.

"I would certainly recommend this program to anyone that is looking to get motivated and get themselves in shape. I have heard nothing but compliments from friends and family on my transformation over the last couple months and I can honestly say that D2S has helped to motivate me to continue working out on a regular basis at PI and to continue monitoring my nutrition. It’s the lifestyle change I needed." - Len Webster
