CrossBones and Having A Great Life

What is a great life?  It is impossible to define because it means something different to each person.  To a child, it may mean staying up late and spending time with parents.  To the parents, it might mean putting the kids to bed early and spending time with each other.  

To a baby, it might mean taking his first steps.  To someone recovering from knee surgery, it means taking her first steps - for a second time.  

The thing is – it doesn’t matter what your version of a great life is- so long as you regularly work towards achieving it.  You might have dreams of making it to the NHL, or dreams of making it out of bed one day without pain.  

My favourite definition of success is “the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal” by this definition, it doesn’t matter what your goal is – world changing entrepreneur, elite level athlete,  awesome Mom, or just being a better version of you – just the act of moving towards that goal is success.

At CrossBones, our goal is to help people live great lives - through exercising 2-3/wk, eating (mostly) clean, playing sports, getting out into nature and embarking on new adventures at least once a year.  If you're not healthy enough to enjoy your life, it's hard to have a great life.

Why is this so important?  To keep you out of the hospital and Old Age home as you age – so that you can continue to try new sports and go on adventures every year as you get older.  We want you to live a great life for the rest of your life.  That’s why we have our “Coach For Life” program to keep you on track throughout all of life’s ups and downs – our coaches work with you inside and outside the gym to manage your fitness, nutrition, stress, sleep, illnesses and whatever else might come up on your road to a great life.  

I've lived in Woodbridge for over 20 years, and I've been a Coach in the community for over 15 years.  My husband and I opened this gym to give the people around us the opportunity to live a Great Life.  We don't take ourselves too seriously - to see what CrossBones stands for, check out 'CrossBones in 7 words' in the about section.  If you think you might be a good fit for our family - book in an interview with one of our Professional Coaches by e-mailing (daytime) or (evenings).  If you're not sure, check out the rest of the website and see what you think.  If you have any questions, send an e-mail over to either of the coaches or give me a call on my cell phone (416 456 3008) and we can talk.

Whatever you decide, make sure it fits your definition for a great life!
