Tinaptwellness - personal training & wellness services

Tinaptwellness - personal training & wellness services Bringing healthy workouts to people's homes/work. She was very active as a young girl and kept busy doing various activities.

Inspiring those who want to lose weight, increase muscle strength & endurance, proper posture & alignment, agility, proprioception, flexibilty & myofascial release for an overall healthy mind & body. Tina’s passion and enthusiasm for health and fitness began at a young age, when she constantly read about health-related topics. She is a recognized personal trainer with multiple certifications, incl

uding certification through Can-Fit-Pro as a Personal Trainer Specialist and Nutrition and Wellness Specialist. She has extensive training in Stott Pilates Matwork and equipment, GymStick, Gravity Personal Training & PostRehab, Kettlebell, TRX and Kickboxing Level 1. She has acquired extensive knowledge related to pre-& post-natal fitness and is certified by Baby & Me Fitness and the ab-rehab program from Core Expectations (a mobile pre & post natal company) using the Tupler Technique. Pfilates (pelvic floor pilates), Hypopressive Method - Level 1 & 2, and MPI Level 1. Tina also took a course in Applied Soma Training which takes the osteopathic view of the body and incorporates myofascial and ELDOA stretching for proper biomechanical functioning and rehabilitation. Tina works with various clients—ranging from youth to elders, those beginning an exercise regime to those who are quite advanced—as well as clients needing some rehab exercises to get them back in motion. Tina believes in a holistic approach to wellness which includes working with her client's doctors, chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, naturopaths and dieticians to ensure her clients attain each of their health goals. Tina is a firm believer in the Mind-Body-Spirit connection. Her innovative approach to health and fitness assures that your exercise routine will be personalized to your unique goals in order to achieve optimal recovery and performance. Having years of experience in the health field as a trainer/instructor, is not only about getting physically healthy or nutritionally healthy but mentally healthy as well. As a trainer/instructor, Tina takes the time to get to know clients well. She knows who they are, who their families are, their work life, social life, obstacles and challenges, etc. Having experienced her own challenges in trying to balance all aspects of life (just as her clients do) she actively listens and recommends tools and strategies that helped her in moving towards her goal. To increase her own mental capacity and strength, and help and guide others, Tina has incorporated Life Coaching into her practice. She was recently certified as a Catalyst Life Coach by the SHFT organization, founded by The Angry Therapist. The Catalyst Life Coaching course has allowed Tina to hone in on more tools and strategies to help take care of her mental health as well as her clients, because maintaining your mental health is just as (if not more) important than maintaining a fit, active lifestyle. Essentially, a catalyst collides with others and as a result of this collision, a change happens. The change happens not because of what we KNOW, but because of who we ARE. Catalysts do not fix people, we are detectives and guides to help you flourish in your life. The focus is not on what’s wrong with you, but what’s right with you. We are all human and being human can be messy. We embrace the fact that we are not perfect. Self-help is not a topic, IT’S A LIFESTYLE. 50% of personal growth is revelation and 80% is ex*****on. A catalyst will help you make revelations AND hold you accountable to meet your goals. We’re casual over clinical – always. Please come as you are, we will meet you there. Being transparent with our stories, we will earn your trust and produce chemistry so we can have a relationship and work WITH you instead of AT you. We are authentic and will tell you the truth, reflecting your truth back to you. It’s a new way to change, in a way that doesn’t change who you are. When not teaching classes or training clients, Tina enjoys reading, good restaurants, the occasional glass of white wine, movies and in the winter watching Habs games on TV.

09/30/2023

"Shamekka* may appear “normal” on the outside, but like so many others with connective tissue disease (CTD) — a broad term for disorders that affect the body’s organs, joints, and structural systems — she is very often living with a great deal of pain.1,2 The 43-year-old mom of three tells Refinery29 she feels like a “hot mess” internally, with multiple symptoms (think fatigue, rashes, swelling, weakness, joint pain, and more) affecting multiple areas of her body almost constantly. Life, she adds, can be unpredictable, complex, and frustrating.
Out of the more than 200 different CTDs that are known to exist,2 Shamekka has been diagnosed with five of them, one of which is scleroderma, where the immune system attempts to repair healthy tissue with extra collagen, causing hardening and tightening of the skin. Scleroderma is more than a skin condition, though — it can also cause serious lung complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH),3 which is a rare, progressive disease4 marked by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs.5
PAH can occur in people with different CTDs,6 but it is most common in those with scleroderma.7 A study showed that Black women are especially vulnerable to it compared to other races — they're 2.5 times more likely to have it,8 in fact. Those with scleroderma can experience a delay in diagnosis of up to four years, so proper education about the disease is important."



Meet Shamekka, an advocate who lives with eight chronic illnesses, including connective tissue disease. Here, she shares her story.

No, Moderate Drinking Isn’t Good For Your Health.

"Despite a long-held belief that moderate amounts of alcohol are good for you, a sweeping new analysis finds that the more you drink, the higher your risk of early death."



Despite beliefs about the benefits of moderate alcohol use, like a daily glass of red wine, a new analysis finds early death risk increases the more you drink.

Hugs 🤗🫂

Hugs 🤗🫂

Handshakes are so dark ages. Giving a hug is activating energy globally. Here's why.

1. **Emotional Connection:** Hugs are a powerful way to express emotions, affection, and empathy. They can convey warmth, comfort, and support, fostering deeper social connections.

2. **Trust Building:** Hugging can create a sense of trust and intimacy between people. It can help break down social barriers and build stronger relationships, both on an individual and societal level.

3. **Stress Reduction:** Scientifically, hugs trigger the release of oxytocin, often called the "bonding hormone." This can reduce stress and anxiety levels, promoting mental well-being and potentially reducing conflict in society.

4. **Enhanced Communication:** Hugging can be a non-verbal form of communication that transcends language barriers. It's a universal gesture that people from different cultures can understand, promoting social cohesion.

5. **Community and Social Bonds:** In societies where hugging is common, there's often a stronger sense of community and social support. These close bonds can lead to greater resilience in the face of challenges.

6. **Evolutionary Perspective:** From an evolutionary standpoint, physical touch and close social bonds may have been essential for survival in our ancestral past. Hugging could be an adaptation that helped humans cooperate and thrive in difficult times.

Hugs go beyond a simple physical gesture; they play a crucial role in building emotional connections, reducing stress, and fostering trust in society. These effects can contribute to a more evolved and interconnected social fabric, while the physiological responses to hugs provide a deeper spiritual awareness and communication. It doesn't need to be heart to heart for this to happen. When we open our arms to another person, we are embracing ourselves. We are coming home to who we are and what we are.

It takes 5 seconds of a hug to remember yourself.
Please don't pat on back, which disrupts the nervous system and energetic field from making a soul connection.
Hug with a wish of prosperity or good health. Intend while hugging .

Love you !

Something to reflect upon.

Her experience in the caption will make you sit back & reflect.

A bit from my past:

My first job after getting my PhD was working as a therapist for people from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Almost all of them were diagnosed with depression, GAD, bipolar, or BPD. Most were highly medicated— some to a point that still sticks with me years later.

As I got to know their background and lives 3 things were very clear:

1. A vast majority had been emotionally neglected, emotionally abused, or physically abused as children.

2. A vast majority had experienced domestic violence or were currently living in it.

3. Basic needs were never met. Life was an hour by hour struggle. Treatment was an attempt to allow them to get to work in most cases. To just continue to surviving.

It was the start of me questioning the field I had been trained in. One that diagnoses people with disorders without taking a look at the whole picture. It began my path of holistic understanding.

A person cannot be well when one unexpected bill will have them fall behind on rent. When they lay their head on a pillow and all they can think about is expenses piling up. When a bill at the grocery store is almost double what they paid last year when their income has stayed the same.

An entire family unit deeply struggles within survival mode. When a job is lost. When daycare needs to be paid, but so does the light bill— what do you choose? When parents can’t even think about the emotional needs of their children because they have to figure out where their next meal is going to come from.

In 1942, 10 years before the diagnostic manual of mental illness was released Maslow knew what was once just common sense: we have a hierarchy of needs.

At the bottom are basic needs food and shelter. Then safety (resources, security). Then belonging (connection, friendship, intimacy.) Without three things we *will* he sick, period.

I get pushback for questioning the status quo. And I’ll continue to do it. The status quo is keeping people sick. It denies their experience. And it says we should bandage people’s symptoms so they can return to the environment that made them sick.

May we wake up, heal ourselves, and build conscious communities to help each other.

We Glorify Overwork and Refuse to Rest.

None of us want to admit that we would rather feel overwhelmed than underwhelmed.

None of us want to admit that we would rather feel overwhelmed than underwhelmed. In fact, we often experience a greater sense of our own value when we’re working than we do when we’re not. Working is not just a way to stay busy, but also to prove our worthiness – to others and to ourselves. T...

Here’s a handy free tool Dr Jessica Taylor developed for those wanting to understand their trauma responses.

Here’s a handy free tool I developed for those wanting to understand their trauma responses.

How to use this tool:

(Only use this if you feel able and safe to do so, or do it with someone else, or a therapist)

1. Consider a traumatic experience you have been through in your life

2. When you think about it, what physical sensations does it cause? What injuries or impacts did it have on your body?

3. What emotional reactions have you had to the event (during, and after)? How have they changed?

4. Consider your thoughts about what happened to you. Have these thoughts changed over time? Are there some you avoid or deny? Some that make you angry or sad?

5. Has the trauma changed your beliefs? This could include the way it has changed your beliefs about the world, about yourself, about life, about culture and religion, about justice, meaning, and purpose. How have these beliefs impacted or changed you?

6. What fears have you developed during or since the trauma? What fears are directly related to what happened, and which ones are indirectly related?

7. How do you try to cope with the trauma? What physical, emotional and behavioural coping mechanisms have you developed? What healthy and unhealthy ones do you have?

8. What impact has this all had on your life? You will notice your answers begin to overlap, and interconnect as you move around the circles I have drawn. Think or write about the impact of the wide range of trauma responses you have had since the event.

I hope you find this useful, please feel free to share and keep

My latest blog has arrived! Domestically Abusive Men Describe WHY They Criticize Women's Mothering: Abusers explain their reasons for exploiting what it means to be a good mother, in their own words

Link: https://open.substack.com/pub/dremmakatz/p/domestically-abusive-men-describe?r=1uokmo&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web

Coercive control is all about a perpetrator trying to cut somebody down from a full human being to a broken shell, and the purpose of this particular post is to explain why, in the case of mothers, their sense of themselves as a good mother is at the top of the perpetrator's list of things to try to destroy.

This post will explain three things:

1. How perpetrators attack mothering and mother-child relationships on purpose

2. How one way they do this is by criticizing the mother as a "bad mother"

3. Why attacking a woman as a "bad mother" is particularly damaging, as it is attack on her identity

What this post gives you is an insight into how male perpetrators of coercive control exploit what it means to be a good mother. In this post, they describe the advantages they get from causing harm, in their own words. If you want to know what is going on inside the minds of perpetrators of abuse, then read this post for a full investigation.

'Take responsibility!' The socially acceptable way to victim blame women and girls...

It's not okay to victim blame - but it's more than okay to force women and girls to take responsibility for their r**e or sexual assault. This article examines recent evidence and possible reasons for why this is happening.
