Survivor Conference 2010: Now with Mrs. Bonnie LangSeptember 17, 2010
Because we know you survivors and supporters out there are interested in learning more about fitness and physical health, we’ve invited Bonnie Lang to come to the SC2010 and share her passion as a personal trainer with you.
Going to the Gym is not possible or accessible for you? You want to learn how to get fit at home? This conference might bring you answers to those questions! Bonnie will be there to help you and share her expertise in a fun and simple way. Some of you already know her and have benefited from her tips, but if you want to learn more…here’s her little Bio.
I am a 25-year-old, happily married, Californian and work in the Calgary area as a mobile personal trainer. Not many can say that they love their job, but I am passionate about sharing workout tips and motivating people to eat thoughtfully, live fully, and be well from a holistic perspective rather than a weight-centered perspective. My goal is to show people that fitness can be manageable, simple, and fun for the everyday person and should ultimately become a habit as it increases your overall quality of life.
Another aspect of my fitness philosophy is that I incorporate High Intensity Training (HIT) into my personal training. These are simple, compound movements that recruit more muscle than isolated muscle movements and use primarily four moves: squats, pushups, dead lifts, and press-ups. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism and the more calories you burn — it’s as simple as that! HIT workouts are functional; they improve your everyday life and tasks from lifting your suitcase into the overhead bin to squatting down to lift up your child. These workouts get you sweating, breathing hard, and wiped out in roughly 18 to 30 minutes! New studies show that most people can focus for about 20 minutes of quality workout time; the importance of quality cannot be overstated. Quality over quantity in your workouts will improve your quality of life.
Another tool I use is the TRX Suspension Trainer, on which I became certified and have never looked back! It’s an incredible, versatile piece of at-home, go-anywhere equipment that gives you a total body workout and highlights core strength in every movement that you do. It combines strength, flexibility, and metabolic training to give you an intense, full-body workout in a new way! This tool helps work your entire body and keeps fitness fun which is always important so that you keep with it (consistency is key above all).
My husband (Mikey) and I love rock climbing, camping, back country skiing, adventuring together, and good conversations over good food with others. I look forward to enjoying the weekend with you, whether you’re interested in how to make a brownie recipe healthier or how to properly do a squat! Let’s dig deep not only on the outside but on the inside as well!
I encourage you to visit Bonnie’s Blog and learn even more about fitness and amazing healthy recipies!
