It finally feels like summer. That means wearing shorts, no need for a jacket, and the dogs going for long walks without having to get boots or coats of their own.
It also means the occasional trip to the mountains for hiking, and maybe the odd day off here and there for vacation time.
Third, it means there’s some possible live events on the horizon, and some other fun things you should check out, so let’s dig into it.
It feels like forever ago that I was able to jet off and head somewhere cool for a weekend to teach trainers stuff, so I’m excited to be able to begin slowly doing that again with a few small events on the horizon.
Scientific Application of Mobility Training – July 23rd Richmond BC Canada
This one day workshop looks at the existing body of research on mobility training, teases out what seems to work, what doesn’t, and outlines a systematic approach to creating the biggest effect on mobility improvements depending on the individuals limitations and other factors that influence mobility.

Stronger Together, PNW Fitness Conference 2022 – August 6th, Seattle WA

Tim Hortons App Collects Vast Amounts of Sensitive Data: Privacy Watchdogs – CTV News
Be careful which apps you download onto your devices. Most of them will collect user data for marketing use, and some go further than their stated terms of service. It’s also safe to remind people that Tim Hortons coffee is trash and they undercook their muffins.
Social Media Stuff
I haven’t been as active on social media lately due to training about 50 sessions a week for the better part of the last 4 months, but I still find the odd moment to make a dank meme.
