Move Well, Be Well

Move Well, Be Well

December 23, 2020

How are you making time to care for your physical and mental health today? 

A simple question, yet a lot of us may struggle to find an answer.

The recent changes in provincial health guidelines and new restrictions put in place on a variety of in-person fitness classes and activities have left many people's mental and physical health fall to the sidelines. During this time of uncertainty, many people are feeling a heightened level of anxiety, emotional fatigue, isolation and an overwhelming amount of stress. While we may be currently managing in a state of survival and day-to-day coping mechanisms it is time to invest in our health and start thriving once again.

At Orthoquest and Kelowna Kinesiology, our mission is to help people Move Well, Be Well. We have adapted and adjusted during the pandemic to create an online community where people can move and exercise from the comfort of their own home.  

Join our Move Well Community and gain access to live, online fitness classes and on-demand content featuring a variety of professionally recorded fitness videos (available at the click of a button).

We strive to offer a personal approach to exercise. The classes are led by Practicing Kinesiologists who have experience with a variety of injuries and are able to make suitable modifications when required. Expect to experience a supportive community where the instructors actually know your name and you can do it anywhere/anytime.  

We offer a wide range of class types such as Pilates, Yoga, Spin, Barre, Zumba, Strength and Conditioning, Mobility classes and more! Members also receive discounts on retail products and monthly online workshops/events.

During these unusual times it is more important than ever to make the time and invest in your health, join our Move Well Community today and discover new ways to Move Well, Be Well.  Click here to learn more!

 

In health,

Putting Products to The Test: Rocky Mountain Edition
Putting Products to The Test: Rocky Mountain Edition

July 20, 2021

With summer in full-swing that means there’s plenty of new opportunities for adventure. I had the chance to embark on a hiking trip in the Rocky Mountains. The trip included five incredible hikes in the Rockies and surrounding regions, totalling just over 70km and 4800m of elevation gain (not an easy feat to say the least!). The scenic views were breathtaking and felt so fortunate to explore such an incredible area in our very own backyard. I came prepared with all the equipment needed to conquer the trails, some old and some new. I thought I would review some of the products from Orthoquest to help other hikers and trail fanatics take off on their journeys!

Portofino officially became a shoe company in 1959, but you may be surprised to know the actual owner’s grandparents were already in the shoe business well before that. The company first built a solid reputation in children's shoes imported from Italy and already respecting many orthopaedic criteria.

A Simple Way to Improve Your Performance: Cycling
A Simple Way to Improve Your Performance: Cycling

June 30, 2021

 Ask any of our team members what their favourite summer activity is in the Okanagan and most of them will say cycling. Ask any person in Kelowna the same question and you may get an overwhelming positive response to road cycling as well. There's just something about feeling the warm Okanagan breeze through your hair as you ride by vineyards and climb up and down some twisty hills and admire the stunning views of the lake from above that makes you feel alive. Cycling isn't all rainbows and butterflies though, in between some of your best rides are flat tires, scrapes and falls, sunburns, tired legs and sore feet. And for those cyclist who are training to compete or riding against your own personal best - you'll understand the frustration that each little mishap or discomfort can cause.
