Lorne Opler

Confused about all the claims and counterclaims we hear about nutrition? What's healthy and what's not? Can you make sense of that long list of ingredients printed on every food package? And just how does one read a nutrition fact label? With so much food information and misinformation swirling around, it can be difficult for fitness professionals to make sense of it all. We'll break through the confusion by sorting through the mass of facts about the nutritional value of the food and drink we consume daily.

Ona McDonald

As Canadians live longer, they face medical issues that can profoundly affect quality of life. These issues are naturally accompanied by limitations and contraindications to exercise.

We'll look at common conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, hip and knee replacements (before and after), dementia, and fibromyalgia. We'll discuss programming for the older adult with one or more medical conditions and present strategies for fall prevention and balance training.
