Zak Krysak | The Grind

The Grind Performance was created as an idea of mine to help other student athletes with the mental aspect of their game and provide the necessary knowledge/ skills for them to perform at their highest potential on and off the field. After playing at the collegiate level I started understanding that many (if not all) student athletes dealt with mental health in one way or another. When I started talking more openly with my friends and other athletes I understood that there was a big lack relating to mental health and the mental aspect within sports. Relating to my own struggles dealing with Depression, Anxiety, Overthinking and Suicidal Thoughts - I wanted to create a resource and program in helping athletes develop proactive methods/ skills so they can succeed within their sport(s), studies and life itself. By focusing greatly on the mental side, The Grind Performance aims to help athletes navigate the many challenges and struggles so they can perform with unshakeable confidence and ease in any aspect of their lives.

Possibilities Recovery Centre

Possibilities Recovery Center is a not-for-profit intensive outpatient program that opened in 2020. The Center fills a gap within the health care system. Our community is facing an addiction crisis. Substance Use in Canada is a problem that not only ruins the lives of those living with the disease and their families but also costs taxpayers $22.8 billion annually. When a person compulsively uses drugs or alcohol, their behaviours do not exist in a vacuum. The consequences from those who are living with addiction, of which there are many, carry outward in a capacity that heavily, and often tragically, affects their loved ones.

Brenna Bote

"Brenna's savasana will make you sweat!" or "I feel like I've given myself a deep tissue massage!" or "I felt like my muscles ACTUALLY melted away from my bones. Never have I ever been so relaxed in a meditation practice!" are just a few glimpses down the rabbit hole of experiences that you will take away from Brenna's classes. Brenna's gifts lie in her ability to feel what her students are thinking. Since every day has different ebbs and flows, the practices are geared towards balancing out the mind through physical practice. Essentially, whatever the students are feeling when they walk through the doors, they receive in their physical practice. The students really do guide Brenna's classes. Brenna views herself as merely a translator of thoughts and emotions into physical movements.
