Alison is all about the Core and Pelvic Floor! Alison is about helping and bringing awareness to other women that you can have a stronger, happier body prenatal and postpartum. She is also a mom of 4 and we are 3 days into homeschooling now. And it's ok not to be perfect as I keep telling myself that. Alison shared her knowledge tonight about how the body adjust to our input over time. We used the word balance a lot as well. As well as proper breathing and how to deal with stress. Alison is an amazing content creator and I love the ease of her presentation. The awareness she growths and provides to women to be their individual healthy self. Core! I said this before women are stronger than men and if you don’t agree. So be it. I know it.

Everything everyday you utilize or engage with is designed. Right now the finishing touches on a project are in works and the first product should be available within March for furniture ! Designed and manufactured right here in Thunder Bay! Again think about that. “Affordable furniture that makes homes better and more functional for generations to come.” YES! Also! Matej does 6000 meters of rowing in 20 minutes when he was in peak training. Correct me if I am mistaken Matej but I am impressed! Also the story about Munich and the van waiting for the team to perform while some other team walks by is the best. And let's just mention Rain! Matej does cold showers and enjoys ice baths. I am kinda intrigued now. Its on the bucket list. Matej, I love your inspiration and the connection you make with designs so beautiful. I liked how you said that good design, you don’t even notice.
