Total Man Show Success!

shawn_royCongratulations to SydFIT Health Centre’s Shawn “The Flurry” Murray, Roy Tjoa, and Team Destiny on their fantastic bouts at the Total Man Show at Max’s Golf Centre in Waterloo on April 5 and 6, 2014.  They closed out Fight Night with 5 wins (including Shawn’s and Roy’s fights) and just 1 loss.

The Total Man Show featured over 50 exhibitors, displaying everything a man could want plus Fight Night, featuring both boxing and Muay Thai.  An enthusiastic crowd of over 500 spectators watched 25 fights over a 6-hour period.

Special congratulations to Lil’s Gym’s Craig Bongelli who lifted a Q50 Infiniti weighing 700 lbs as a fundraiser for Right to Play.

Thank you for everyone who came to The Total Man Show to support the SydFIT Health Centre fighters.

Running & Yoga Clinic

yoga runningRUNNING

The run will be designed to accommodate runners of all abilities.

The warm-up will be at 5:15pm.  We will then do an out and back course, likely on the Iron Horse trail. We will run for approx 15-20 minutes, then turn around and run back the way we came.

Runners run at their own speed and we will join up again on the way back.  After the run we will do a 60 minute yoga class starting at 6:15pm


The yoga class will be designed to allow anyone to take part. The goal is to focus on improving overall performance and increasing flexibility.

Your instructor Dave Johnson started practicing yoga to support his long distance running habit. Competing in hundreds of local and North American races has kept him motivated and dedicated to training. In April 2013, Dave competed in his fourth Boston Marathon.

We will also address improving the body’s core strength to promote great overall health. Coaching and objectives will be customized to each individual.  Register now!
