Jordan Cieciwa

Health and Fitness Expert - Workplace Wellness Specialist

People forgot how to have fun. My mission is to make this Nation healthier One Fit City at a time. Add a little fun to functional training, and introduce regular people to sport specific training and we have a recipe for success. Done smart, and over time, we can turn this nation into aspiring athletes(or at least healthier arm chair quarterbacks). A degree in Kinesology and Applied Health and work with everything from Couch Potatoes Pro Athletes over the past decade is my key to battling Obesity and Inactivity.

Let The Canada Summer Games Begin

Canada Summer Games is about to descend on Winnipeg. In less than 90 days, Winnipeg will be the site of more than 4000 athletes performing to their very best. It was my thought that all those athletes, friends and families would probably like an insiders guide to the city. You know, best restaurants to refuel, places to relax, shopping areas to kill time, and of course resources for athletes to get a competitive edge.

So, Why Do We Have Body Fat?

What is it with society's obsession with getting rid of fat? Books, supplements, and countless TV shows are aimed at one topic, getting rid of fat. What's wrong with having body fat?

Food Should Be Fuel, Not What Makes Us Fat

Food has become what makes us fat or skinny -- acceptable levels of fat or skinniness are determined by sex appeal, not by doctors, physiologists or experts in health.

Mental Health Is The Key To Workplace Wellness

Exercise, active living and healthy eating are not the first step in living a healthy lifestyle. The base needs to be set before anyone can live a healthy lifestyle. This is the problem -- most people are not equipped to live healthy. Education is important to health, and more than anything, mental health is critical.

There's More to Health Than Physical Beauty

We have made body image more important than body function. You can be healthy, beautiful and happy at any size. You can be unhealthy and unhappy at any size as well. If our children hear us say all that matters is health, but see us with fitness magazines on our coffee tables and weight-loss products in our cupboards, what message do they really get?

Men Need to Focus on Health Instead of Six-Packs

Men, it is our week to wake up! We are unhealthy, we have been denying it, and putting it off. Now is the time to stop, take notice, and make changes. There was a study commissioned by the Canadian Men's Health Foundation to understand the economic impact of poor health choices among Canadian men. If these numbers do not fill you with a deep desire to make some changes, I do not know what will.
