Our Fitness workshop was held on Sunday June 3rd from 12:30-2:30. Trainer Lara Marquez continued her BOOTY workout series and paired it with a BACK strengthener. Squats, thrusts, rows and more.
Location: 99 Sudbury St, Toronto, ON M6J 3S7
Our sponsors for this workshop include:
Dr Aliya Visram is a chiropractic doctor and registered acupuncturist in Toronto. A certified yoga teacher, strength and conditioning specialist and rehabilitation expert, Dr Aliya uses her knowledge and hands on experience to help diagnose and treat various complicated injuries. Specializing in women’s health, Dr Aliya has developed a multi-faceted integrated approach that promotes whole body wellness. Her journey back to fitness post-baby has helped her understand and develop a new program of injury management and prevention exercises and techniques based on current research and patient outcomes. When she’s not in the clinic, you can find Dr Aliya on her yoga mat, going for a run or sharing cuddles with her tiny humans Rose and Will.
Dr Aliya shared the latest tips and trends on performance optimization and how to prevent injuries from occurring during training.
She demonstrated an integrative approach to injury management using active release techniques (ART), acupuncture, dynamic cupping and sports taping.
By the end of this workshop we learned how to prevent training injuries from occurring and how to use some key pain management techniques (including taping) to help relieve pain.
Spaces by Jacflash amped up our newest client and my good friend Rachel David’s quirky condo into a more sophisticated and put-together living space. (@racheldavid)
We found inspiration from eclectic, traditional spaces. Every piece we chose serves more than one purpose and can live in her home for years.
Our favourite element is the fireplace. This unique built-in has a large mantel and shelving tucked away in the corner, but was originally a dated maple wood. We sanded and painted it —along with the window ledges— white, to brighten and update the room.
The ‘brick’ we used around the fireplace is a porcelain tile that serves to make the mantle look more finished.
With a smaller budget, we had to get creative and use our resources appropriately. Many of the pieces we purchased were inexpensive, and often antiques. We had our first visit to the Hamilton Antique Mall, which is a hidden gem for affordability. The other more modern pieces like the sofa and coffee table were purchased from Ikea.
The plethora of paintings Rachel inherited from her grandmother were a major treat. She had so many to choose from; our role was to curate them in a more effective way. Instead of having the large pieces scattered around her apartment, we created a gallery wall above the couch. This living room looks so bright and colourful, but the only actual source of colour is in the art and accessories, which we love.
Finishing touches like curtains and plants really make this living room feel like it has been put together over time and fits our client’s lifestyle and personality. This project was such a success that Rachel has decided to re-do her kitchen with us next!

The crop top seems to be a piece that women wear to show off their amazing abs, but if you don’t feel comfortable baring your belly, don’t fret- this lace bustier creates an illusion to refocus the eye to the most appealing, and smallest, part of your waist.
A modernized take on a crop top that we love is the lace bustier which was originated from the structured look of a form-fitting corset.
You can shop the lace bustier trend here at jacflash.net.
We suggest pairing it with high waisted pants/shorts with a cute leather or bomber jacket or with a great skirt, like the Jacflash Black Tulle Skirt or the Jacflash Mesh Black Slit Pencil Skirt for the perfect GNO!
Jacflash, Lace Bralette $45, available here.
