At last the snow has melted and the spring air is warming up. We are really anxious to get Rifting on the pathways, stairs, walls, grass, sand and any other surfaces we can run on here in the great outdoors of Ottawa.
Do you want to achieve a high level of fitness in a relatively short period of time? We teach some very creative exercises that require minimal equipment. As usual, we ask that you can run 5 km pretty comfortably in one hour. The run is the rest in this functional fitness workout! Please drop us a line if you have any questions. Feel free to forward this on to your family and friends. We can offer them a complimentary trial session on Tues. Aug. 20th.

Join us for the last 5 week series of R.I.F.T.PHiit outdoors in 2012! We have had an amazing summer of hot and dry conditions to Rift. As you can see in the photo above - we reached spectacular heights in our plyometric training. The next 5 week series should prove to be the most challenging session of free running/parcouring yet.

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!
