When it comes to motivation, February can be one tough month. It's cold, we’re missing that Vitamin D and winter has begun to drive us a bit nutty. By this month, many of us have lost the verve we had at the beginning of January. The fitness goals we set softened and the good intentions we had shifted. So how can you stay motivated and keep personal goals on track? Your new inspired love for fitness can't just be because of a possible winter getaway. Ask yourself, do I feel better because I am moving more? The answer is probably YES!

On those sunny days in February, get out and start moving. Ski, skate, toboggan with the kids. The key to fighting the February blahs is tapping into that childlike spirit inside you. Get your mojo flowing by stimulating your body. MOVE!

TAB stresses fun as the key to a good fitness program. Good vibes keep you happy, and provide consistency.It's cold out there, and February is a perfect time to surround yourself with the love of family, friends and community. We want you to know how much we appreciate the love and support you have shown over the years. You have been the inspiration behind our desire to continue to help serve this community.

Please check the dates for the workshops coming this month! March and April will be a little more spread out than usual. As Rhonda travels to inspire young dancers the classes on Saturday will be occurring more sporadically. Thank you and see you soon!

Keep watching for new AbRehab classes coming after the February and March holidays.



TAB's AB REHAB, is what ballet is to dance: it's sets the foundation for everything else. It reinforces proper alignment and helps your body move more affectively.

What you learn in Ab Rehab makes all other TAB classes more effective. Knowing where you feel an exercise working is an important gauge of your own personal improvement. Being able to focus and feel the muscle is key to reminding your body how to move. Balance, power, and strength are out of reach without understanding how to manipulate your centre or core.

So, what is 'the core?'
We hear this word being tossed around repeatedly. We're talking about more than just your abdominal wall. This is your powerhouse, the midsection of the body. It includes the abdominal wall, but also the back, hamstrings, quads and glutes. So much strength and power can come from this area. Attach breath, and go even further!

Ab Rehab covers all of these areas but focuses on the abdominal wall. Not just the beauty of the rectus abdominus (six pack), but also the deeper muscles—transverse abdominus, lower abdominals, obliques and pelvic floor.

The deeper muscles are the hardest to 'wake up' without turning on surrounding muscles like the hip flexors and glutes. Ab Rehab teaches you how to find these muscles and rediscover the power in your middle.

February is
National Chocolate Month!

Flourless Chocolate Cake
A recipe by Kathy Smart

12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
6 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup coconut sugar or sucanat
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  Confectioners’ sugar and/or cocoa powder for dusting
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 2-inch spring form pan or an 8 by 5-inch pan with non-stick spray. Place the chocolate, coconut oil, and salt in a pot and melt on a stove over low heat. Beat the eggs, vanilla, and coconut sugar with a stand or handheld mixer until light and thickened (about 8 to 10 minutes). Gently fold the melted chocolate into the whipped eggs until evenly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out wet but not gooey (about 1 hour and 25 minutes). Remove the cake from the oven and cool on a rack.
