Mariam combines personal training experience and certification with a BSN in Nursing. For her, as a trainer, her most important goal is to help you to make exercise a part of your lifestyle.

This Week’s Move of the Week:

I love working on the Seated Row Machine! It’s easy, but you have to have perfect form.

1. Grab handles and pull towards you until you are sitting nice and tall. Round your shoulders back and down and stick your chest out.

2. Now pull handles towards you as far back as you can. Squeeze your shoulder blades together. Return to starting position. Repeat 10-12 times.

Top 5 Workout Songs:

  • Enjoy the Silence – Depeche Mode
  • Sweet Child of Mine- Guns N Roses
  • Sex is on Fire – Kings of Leon
  • Naveed – Our Lady Peace
  • Closer – Nine inch Nails

Favourite Piece of Equipment and Why:

I absolutely love working with the BOSU! Because the BOSU is not a stable surface it allows for multiple muscle groups to be recruited and engaged (proprioreception), thereby burning more calories and making it very efficient. There is a strong core element to using this equipment as we’ll in order to maintain balance.  The BOSU is also very versatile; I can use it for my most beginner clients all the way up to my most advanced client. I definitely recommend incorporating the BOSU into your strength training routine!

So when’s your next demo?
