Introducing your coaches: Dr. Kate O’Hare, D.C.

As a child I didn't think I had an athletically inclined bone in my body yet my childhood was filled with all sorts of athletics. My two left feet usually ended up leaving me with an embarrassing story instead of the winning home run. Ironically, my two left feet didn't seem to stop me from picking up running as a hobby. Along with running, came a love for what the capacity of the human body. Not surprisingly, this newfound love for sport and health lead me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in kinesiology and psychology from the University of Western Ontario.

Like many new university graduates, I had no idea what to pursue next apart from knowing that I wanted a career in healthcare. I was lucky enough to be offered an internship at a local chiropractic clinic and it was there that I became fascinated by the nervous system. Inspired, I began my career as a chiropractor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College graduating in 2015.

I am also a FRC® Mobility Specialist and will have completed my training as a Functional Movement Assessment (FRA® ) Specialist by the end of the month. The functional movement assessment is a comprehensive assessment of all joint movement to identify limitations in range of motion and quality movement within that range that are then limiting your body's ability to safely do many activities. After identifying those limitations, we can safely put in place some gentle exercises that can maintain and emphasize joint health and function so that you can develop better prerequisite movements for not only your favorite activities but even your daily activities.

A lot of the activities we do on a daily basis don't adequately produce joint movement regularly so we end up losing movement. When we then need to use those movements we don't have them. We have to compensate by recruiting other areas of the body that don't naturally function in such a way. You then end up using strained and overworked tissue that lead to injury.

About Kaley Metler, CPT, CSN(trained in 1 more month):

Certified Personal Trainer, Training Sports Nutritionist(diploma end of month) Group Fitness Coach, Mom & Duck & Chicken Owner

I have played competitive sports all my life and still do today. Running has always been part of my training and I was Arizona State Champion in 300 Hurdles & 800 M moving on to attend National Qualifying Meet. I have a fun easy going spirit and love to encourage the family aspect of training.

I focus a lot on mobility and ensuring we all learn how to move all of our joints for better range of motion and less injury. I love teaching in many areas and first and foremost teach core engagement. I am versed in teaching these types of classes: pilates, aquafit, bootcamp, piyo, HIIT, kickboxing, office exercises for better posture, and really enjoy working with those over 50. I have a great connection with them and I find they are not always looking for the newest fad on social media feed and are very loyal :) I love teaching barefoot in a nature setting as I feel we all need to escape the digital world we are in and learn to develop all the great muscles in our feet.

For mindful eating(nutrition), my journey has been on a steady incline to BETTER I would say. First 15 yrs of my working career was in field engineering for Schlumberger and then GE. On the go style eating(eating out more than I was eating home cooked food but I did take along a lot of cans of tuna lol. I recall a coworker once telling me a style of eating he was doing, which was basically anti inflammatory. I had my food sensitivity test done by a naturopath and it was smooth sailing if I ate according to it and not over eat(especially in particular carb area). I am fascinated how the body can be so healthy by our food choices. I am now getting my diploma in Sports Nutrition so I can help my clients even more :)
