You are the co-founder of a non-profit organization that is focused on providing a safe space to mentor young women. Tell us more about this venture of yours of giving back to society.
Riveters Ontario is a group that empowers young women and offers a secure space to discuss women’s issues and personal growth. The inspiration behind the group’s name comes from Rosie the Riveter, a World War II campaign. The group’s formation was sparked by the pandemic, as young women aged 13-18 were missing the social interaction of extracurricular activities and community engagement. Riveters Ontario’s primary aim is to promote leadership and philanthropy among young women. The group has expanded from 10-12 members to over 100 members across multiple schools and has brought joy to many people in the community.
Riveters Ontario’s first initiative was a menstrual drive, which was done in partnership with Bleed the North. The school community contributed over 13,000 menstrual products and raised over $1000 in monetary donations. All donations were given to women’s shelters and menstruators who cannot afford products. The menstrual drive initiative has been an ongoing success since its inception and has grown in impact each year, with over 25,000 menstrual products collected and thousands of dollars raised annually. Riveters Ontario has also collaborated with Inspire Always and Million Dollar Smiles to fulfill the wishes of terminally ill youth. They ran a campaign with Durham Victim Services on human trafficking, putting up educational posters in local hotels and motels with resources and support for victims of human trafficking. In December of this year, the group made homemade Christmas cards for the elderly in retirement homes. The group meets every week to participate in self-improvement workshops, discussions, and to plan future initiatives.
Riveters Ontario’s long-term goal is to continue growing the group and raising awareness of women’s issues in their community. The group is proud of the progress they have made and hopes to see similar groups like the Riveters in all schools throughout the province. The moderators of the group are so incredibly proud of how far the girls have come and where they are going to go. As one of the teacher moderators, would say, “We give the girls the tools and the voice to make their ideas into a reality.”
You believe that optimal health can only be achieved through working on the integral function of each of the body systems coupled with mindset, weight-bearing, and endurance training. Your clients are taught sustainable lifestyle methodologies interwoven with state-of-the-art functional medical modalities that are proven to enhance performance, recovery, and the body’s ability to break down fat. Elaborate on this theory of yours to provide ideal fitness.
My belief is that achieving optimal health requires a holistic approach, recognizing the complexity and interdependence of the body’s various systems. To attain optimal health, it’s essential to address the integral function of each of these systems through a combination of physical activity, whole food nutrition, tiny habits, and mindset training. Additionally, the use of functional medical modalities can assist in ensuring optimal gut health and hormone balance, which in turn allows the body to function optimally and achieve individual goals.
Incorporating physical activity, including weight-bearing and endurance training, is a critical component of achieving optimal health. By building lean muscle mass, individuals can enhance their body’s ability to break down fat and burn more calories at rest, improving overall fitness, muscle strength, bone density, and cardiovascular health.
Mindset training is equally crucial to achieving optimal health. Developing a positive and resilient mindset can have a powerful impact on both physical and mental well-being, allowing individuals to overcome obstacles and stay motivated in their fitness journey.
Functional medical modalities can also be a useful tool in promoting healing and recovery, enhancing performance, and optimizing the function of the body’s systems. These modalities may include personalized IV therapy, targeted injection therapy, wellness genetic testing, neuro-acupuncture, hormone optimization, neurofeedback, reflexology, nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, manual therapies (massage and physio) and PEMF.
To create a sustainable fitness plan that supports long-term success, it’s important to incorporate all of these elements into a comprehensive approach. By addressing the integral function of each body system, developing a positive and resilient mindset, and utilizing functional medical modalities, individuals can achieve optimal health and fitness and create sustainable habits that support their long-term success.
