And my personal attention through the program.

This is not a set-it-and-forget it online course. You won't be left to figure it out on your own!
This program is based on you. It's based on what you need, how you move, what your life is like.

This is truly a small group program. There will be no more than 10-15 people in any coaching call.

 In these personal, super connected sessions you get specifics on how to do the exercises
in ways that work for your particular situation.
You get support and clarity to help ease your fears so you can get back to moving with confidence, building strength and supporting your bones the best way you can!

We'll get to know each other. I'll know if you're not there in the coaching calls and I'll reach out to see if you're ok. To find out what I can do to support you. To make sure you succeed!

We have 12 weeks together to get to know each other, for me to keep you accountable to your goals and for us to build your perfect, life-long plan for bone-smart movement and exercise.

Once that 12 weeks is done, you have life-long access to all the videos, all the PDF's
and all the knowledge and skill you've gained!

What else do you get...

  • A sense of control over your osteoporosis 
  • The confidence to move safely 
  • A full understanding of how osteoporosis affects your movement 
  • The ability to evaluate exercises for yourself

Marjie C wants you to know that...

This course is a gem! I am 70 years old and was diagnosed with osteoporosis 6 years ago. I only wish that I could have had this incredible program years ago.

Over the past 9 weeks I have received and learned so much! The program is very well organized into modules and easy to follow. Alison gives you so much information and her videos are easy to follow. She is such a warm person and I feel like she's by my side when I follow the videos. Even though I know many of the sequences by heart I go back to the flows just to spend time with her. I feel like I now have a comprehensive exercise program for life! Can you believe it that I started with a free, one on one coaching call with Alison.

I recently went on a five day kayak trip on the lower French River and Georgian Bay. I am convinced that the strength training and balance work prepared me for this challenge. Getting out of the kayak and walking on uneven, slippery surfaces was difficult but I came home quite sore but in one piece!

I have enjoyed the coaching calls and the time to ask questions and hear from other knowledgeable women. I highly recommend this program! Your fitness level and confidence will soar

About me! Who am I?

Hi! I'm Alison and I have osteoporosis, so I totally get what you're dealing with.
I did all the right things and still ended up with bone loss, talk about overwhelming!

I've been a Pilates teacher, studio owner and Therapeutic Movement coach for over 20 years helping people feel better, stronger and more confident!

My osteoporosis is combination of genetics, malabsorption issues and early menopause. When I got that diagnosis at 56, I began to refocus my work and have developed classes and programs specifically to offer a whole-body solution to our complex exercise needs. With that refocus, I have gained a breadth of knowledge and tools to give me the confidence to manage my bone health and I want to share them with you!

In addition to working with my wonderful international community of osteoporosis and osteopenia clients, I continue to teach and run my Toronto studio, Boomerang Pilates, with a full slate of online and in-person classes.

Awareness, acceptance, adaptability, and awe

I highly recommend this course to anyone with osteoporosis and those who just love to move. Over the 12 modules + I became aware of how different aspects of my movement and anatomy are working together (or not). And the things that I can do to change the relationships. I also became aware of the changes that have occurred over the years. A good wake up call. I have been taking for granted things like squatting, balance, lifting things. (safely). I just stop doing the things that are no longer comfortable and then realize I can’t do them because I haven’t been doing them, (for example, sitting on the floor). One of the best parts is the call in coaching sessions where you get to share your questions with a group and check in with Alison about your challenges and successes. Alison is a wonder. As the course creator and instructor, she has a wealth of knowledge and builds adaptability and acceptance into all her demonstrations and talking points. There is a structure and order to the way the course is designed, but now that I have gone through it once I have been going backwards and forwards to the different modules depending on how I am feeling, and learning new stuff that I missed the first time through. It is a thoughtful and rigorous course and I feel more confident and definitely stronger than I did when I started.

Course Summary

Osteoporosis is complex, but getting moving is simple.

Please know that you have time to go through this material slowly and I'll be with you every step of the way. You don't do every exercise every day, you go through them gradually and one module at a time.

With each movement module, you'll add more tools, more strength and more capacity. I'll give you modifications that help with whatever other issues you may have, like arthritis, knee or back pain. Each module builds on the one before as you create a rugged practice that serves your whole body, not just your bones!

In each module you'll focus on another set of exercises. By the end of the program, you'll have learned them all and have a wonderful variety of moves to play with, a habit of moving every day and a fun, varied workout!

I'll coach you through your process as we develop a routine that serves you best. You, not anyone else, because everybody's osteoporosis journey is different. We'll figure it out together and discover what you need, want and love to do!

What does a whole body approach to osteoporosis look like?

We cover the basics of what osteoporosis is and how it affects your movement. You'll get a solid base of understanding for not only the exercises in the program, but for all the motions of everyday living and other sports and activities!

We talk about lifestyle and natural, functional movements that work for us as well as specific exercises. We talk about how to meld your bone-supporting moves into the day because everyone is busy and we need to be practical about our time!

The modules include all the body parts and exercise options you need to support your bones:

  • Posture & alignment 
  • Balance Stretches and self-massage 
  • Foot strength & mobility 
  • Whole body joint mobility 
  • Hip 
  • Core & breathing (yes, even breathing is key to supporting your bones) 
  • Back 
  • Strength and resistance training

 Each module flows on from the next so you're completely prepared for the progression through the program as you travel this guided journey at your own pace. I'll never push you to go faster than you need, but I'll also help you stay on track so you have measurable success through our 12 weeks together!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, absolutely! All the tutorial videos include options that accommodate hips, knees and back pain. If you're unsure about anything, bring it to the coaching calls so you can show me how you're doing the exercise. I'll give you feedback and cues that make sense to you!
You can also post in the Facebook group for quick answers between coaching calls and for input from your osteo buddies!

All the coaching calls are recorded so you can either re-visit them later or watch for the first time if you were busy during the meeting. The recordings are close captioned and have a transcript so you can skip through quickly to find the topics that particularly interest you.

If you have specific questions you can post them in the Facebook group or email them to me in advance and I'll answer even if you can't be there live.

We currently have 2 calls to accommodate different schedules and time zones: Thursdays at 2 pm ET and alternate Fridays at 8:30 pm ET.

The Facebook group and email are also great places to ask questions in general, especially if you can't come to any/all the coaching calls!
There are people who have found real value in the program without attending any of the calls live, but I think they're really gold and worth planning around!

Everybody works at their own pace and for sure sometimes people haven't completed the program in 12 weeks. You can extend your time with the coaching calls, accountability check-ins and Facebook group on a monthly basis with the BoneSMART membership. Join for as long as you want and cancel at any time!

Yes, I really believe in this program! We have a 30 day money-back guarantee. My commitment to you is that I'm offering the best program I can and all the support I believe you need to succeed. The commitment I need from you is that you'll really show up for yourself! If in the first 30 days, after attending the coaching calls and really working on the exercises, you decide you don't want to be in the program we'll get together on Zoom. We'll go over what you've been working on, how you've engaged with the program and if it really isn't working for you, we'll pro-rate the cost and refund the time you won't be using. 

Pilates teacher Debs C has this to say...

Alison has designed a course which covers so much information in a way that appeals to all styles of learning. The structure is easy to follow and allows the learner to dip in and out depending upon time available.
Alison has a lovely chilled style when presentíng the videos and her use of language and cuing is so much fun and descriptive. Having the videos handy to refer back to or work alongside is great. It can be a bit daunting to have so many new exercises to try and fit into the day, but Alison has been very practical and gives ways to include balance and movement into daily life and how to schedule specific routines.

The weekly coaching calls creates a very supportive group of people and we can all work together to find solutions to queries together. The facebook group makes this sisterhood stronger. Together and with Alison’s help a diagnosis doesn’t feel like a disability, Alison’s course builds strength, balance and confidence to live life to the full.
