Its a belief that true success, true potential, true peak performance all arise from one point: true health. Therefore the pursuit and purpose of training is to acquire the healthiest body, mind, and spirit, as these are the prerequisites for any true pinnacle experience. This is achieved by focusing on skill acquisition, learning and refining of technique, developing an acute awareness of where, how, and why the body moves, to the point that the athlete can execute skills, tactics, and strategies on demand even in stressful environments. The result: athletes live out their fullest potential in sport, and in life beyond sport.


By learning how to initiate all movements move from one central point – the core – allows an athlete to train for all sports simultaneously, and allows the athlete to transfer power efficiently throughout their body minimizing stress, strain, and risks of injury and illness. The result of this type of training: athletes develop a degree of efficacy that allows them to outperform in any one sport, in all three sports, and to transition between each sport effortlessly.

MSO Provincial Champs in Nepean were also the site for the Canadian Forces own Championships. As a result, the Saturday morning session opened with a Color Guard marching onto the Nepean Sportsplex pool deck followed by the Canadian anthem. It was an opportunity for all to appreciate the Canadian men & women who provide their country with military service. Thank you.

Ontario Summer Games, London Aug 2-5, 2018

Congratulations to Serena Grodski who has qualified for the Ontario Summer Games, and will be competing in both individual and relay triathlon events in London this summer.  Serena competed at Triathlon Ontario Provincials in Welland in August last year scoring enough points to place as one of the top 24 Junior females.

In addition, Serena has been permitted by Triathlon Ontario to compete this year at XTerra ‘Mine Over Matter’ off road triathlon to be held in June at the Kelso Conservation Area. Along with her brother, the pair will be looking to see if they can take both 1st place podium positions that mom & dad took last year. What an amazing summer of racing it will be!
