INSTRUCTOR (MEGA/FITUAL)

Favourite Mega or Fitual move? Why? 

Fitual: Pliés would have to be my favourite Fitual move. It combines strength, balance and posture all in one! 

Mega: My favourite Mega move is twisted bear. The true oblique burn you didn’t know you needed!

What can one expect from your class?

In my Fitual class you can expect a high energy environment while dancing to the beat of the music. I take all this energy and channel it into slow movements on the Mega. Both classes complement each other so well I can't stress that enough!

Quote something you preach in your class.

I absolutely stand by the quote located right when you walk into the studio. "Don’t half ass anything… whatever you do - use your full ass! "

DAYNA

INSTRUCTOR (MEGA)

Favourite Mega move? Why?

This is a tough one! If I HAD to choose—my favourite Mega-move would have to be Spider Lunge! However, I do love a good Twisted Crunch in Reverse Giant (it gets those obliques burning)!

What can one expect from your class?

My goal in class to to challenge clients, make them feel strong and to find their edge, in a safe and healthy way. In this respect, I absolutely love seeing clients progress and get stronger! It’s not about weight loss and aesthetics, but more about focusing on proper form and alignment. The changes I’ve seen in clients in the Mega Studio since The Fitual opened is really amazing and inspiring. I love being apart of that journey with clients. 

Quote something you preach in your class.

“You are stronger than you think.” This mantra is applicable in so many areas of life, not just fitness. 90% of the battle is often mental. You accomplish goals with hard work and perseverance.

Reverse Giant Crunch - both centre belly & twisted. 

Crunches off the back target the abs/obliques so effectively and efficiently.

LEANNA

INSTRUCTOR (MEGA/FITUAL)

Favourite Mega & Fitual move? Why? 

Mega: inchworm. I love the slow and controlled obliques because it really gets deep inside the muscle. The next day you feel extra sculpted. 

Fitual: step touch AKA dance it out. I love to dance and move to the beat it always makes me smile even if I’m 10 minutes into cardio 

What can one expect from your class?

I am always rooting for you when you show up to any of my classes Fitual or Mega! 

Quote something you preach in your class.

MEGAN

INSTRUCTOR (MEGA)

Favourite Mega move? Why? 

There are so many different moves I love on the mega but one of my all time favourites is the side lying leg sweep and press. It really targets your glute medius muscle (so good for all of you runners!) and is such a good way to burn out your legs. If you can keep your top leg off of your bottom leg the entire time, you’re amazing!

What can one expect from your class?

In my classes you can expect lots of slow and controlled pulses and even the occasional six count to finish off our lower body moves.

Quote something you preach in your class.

You can hear me preaching more than you even want to know about the way our body’s work and why it is so important to move with proper alignment and breath. Our bodies offer us SO MUCH and I want everyone to leave my classes feeling stronger than when they walked in.

SAM

INSTRUCTOR (MEGA/FITUAL)

Favourite Fitual move? Why? 

This is like asking me my favorite band - how can you choose?! I love a good plank series – army crawls, knee taps, bear, etc. I could plank all day! And any ground glute work, once I strap on those ankle weights I’m in my happy place.

What can one expect from your class?

A high energy, dance-infused, full body burn – with a little bit of Rock ‘n’ Roll !

Quote something you preach in your class.

“Embrace that burn!”

“Just one more cardio song, I promise!”

SARI

INSTRUCTOR (MEGA)

Favourite Mega move? Why? 

Kneeling Giant Inner Thigh and Bungee Kicks (had to pick two). They are so efficient at targeting the muscles and I love how they are so high intensity but at the same time, low impact. Easy on the knees and the wrists for those with joint issues.

What can one expect from your class?

A lot of alignment cues and a reminder to always connect to the breath

Quote something you preach in your class.

Reminder to move with integrity and precision. Don't worry about how many reps you can squeeze in.

Although I love the Fitual and Mega both, I'd have to say Mega because of how energized and refreshed I feel after. Always leaves me sweating, shaking and sore for days!
