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,

Quest for Kindness
Quest for Kindness

September 16, 2021

To us, movement is key. To move, means to change position, or to make progress. We believe in helping not only people Move Well but we also see the benefits of helping move our community to think better, to be better, and to do better. We believe that change starts within, beginning with us, with our employees, through our customers, and in the community at large - that is where "Quest For Kindness" was created.

My Run Story: Mom of 4 and a 250 pound, plus size runner
My Run Story: Mom of 4 and a 250 pound, plus size runner

August 31, 2021

 My running story starts like most runners', I was not a runner. I bought an indoor treadmill in the fall of 2017 and used it for about 6 months with the intent of getting into running. Two days after my 43rd birthday in March of 2018, I stumbled, tripped and did a nose-dive into the rabbit hole that is the seemingly innocent, non-addictive world of running and attempted my first “outdoor” run. And no, I was not being chased by a bear nor was someone trying to snatch my purse - all comments and perceptions people of my stature often receive when others see us running outside. I simply laced up an old pair of Saucony’s, put on some good music, and started walking until I got to the part of the park where I was not visible to the street traffic. As a plus size runner, one of the things we fear most is being seen by onlookers or made fun of. My walk quickly turned into a jog and my jog into a run until finally I had an overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment beaming from within. I was becoming a runner.
