We are going to miss stair climbing! Can't believe we crawled up backwards on hands & toes and of course back down again. Ottawa tourists were amazed at the sight. What an amazing core and upper body workout! Last four minutes of the last one hour workout we ran up and down the 263 stairs behind Parliament twice! Of course "the run is the rest" so we had a light 30 min run to finish off the 2011 season.
Thank you to all our Riftors who worked out with us during our May - October 2011 season. Sebastian and I (Avril) had a great time leading such an amazing group of dedicated fitness buffs. Early May 2012 we will be out Rifting again in the great urban areas of Ottawa! Now we will focus on strength training, spinning and yoga at the YMCA/YWCA on Argyle. We hope to see you in the gym or out on one of the many running routes here in Ottawa!

Phiit: Plyometric High Intensity Interval Training
At last our identity is coming to light! Our company name, Sculpt Club™ has evolved over the years and so have our outdoor training programs. Here is the new logo for our latest fitness program R.I.F.T. Phiit™.
I discovered the amazing graphic talent of Isidoros Koliavras while searching 3D art on line. Isi was willing to work with our logo concepts and with his superb talent he has been able to bring our Redback spider to life! I am thinking that a 4'X4' print of our Redback will look great in our dining room! Someday perhaps we will meet Isi in Athens and we can thank him in person for his work over a big greek salad.
Sebastian and I (Avril) would like to thank Kym Shumsky for her inspiration to "get with it" and have a web presence for our fitness program. Kym's patience and expertise helped me to set-up this blog in 2009. With her advice I have recently created a simple website that hopefully can be viewed anywhere, anytime on any device by a wide audience. I might even get a smart phone soon. Stay tuned for our twitter updates!

This guy is amazing! Ahead of his time, I must say. O.k. this is a little crazy. We don't jump through windows or off bridges in our R.I.F.T.ing™ program. We just want to be functionally fit and feeling totally free while running. The Art of Parcouring enables us to use our outdoor environment as our gym. Yes it can seem really crazy at times but we do love it!
