I am presently working with two clients who are pregnant. I am sure they have heard me say that being pregnant is like training for a marathon because both require loads of muscular strength, mental stamina as well as unrelenting endurance to help cope with the constant evolving challenges your body and mind goes through.
For a marathon you have specific training for certain periods leading up to the big day. The same can be said for pregnancy. However these certain periods are the trimesters and depending where you are at in the trimesters the training will vary to meet the different body’s stages of development. A program should help you stay strong, keep your cardio capacity in check and help avoid the common aches and pains that come with the added weight.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently stated that worldwide obesity has doubled since 1980. In 2010 approximately 43 million children worldwide under the age of 5 were overweight; this epidemic is a direct reflection of the developed countries’ eating habits. USA ranked #1 on the obesity scale with 30% of its population being obese, Canada ranked not far behind at #11 with 14.3% of its population being considered well over the required healthy weight.
Since every fashion week-goer in Montreal has heard the name Telio, I thought it would be interesting for our readers to know a little more about this company. So here is some of what I learned during my conversation with co-owner Andre Telio when we discussed the story behind Telio and it's impact on Montreal's fashion scene and Montreal fashion designers.
Khala is young upcoming designer doing her best to create fashionable evening and cocktail dresses for her company Khalalelo Designs. Khala entered the fashion industry at only 18 years of age, designing for runway shows, creating her own alterations company, and designing outfits for her large network of clientele all while still attending school. She’s done many fashion shows and events in Montreal and is now branding out to other provinces (just recently showcased her line at an elite venue Tryst in Toronto).
She aims to continue her success in building her own company, branding out throughout the rest Canada, and to finally graduate from College Lasalle in early May 2012.
