Fat Blasting HIIT Circuit + My Current Training & Nutrition

Hello all! It’s a surprisingly sunny and lovely day here in Vancouver, which somehow makes the fact that I am currently not eating bananas not seem quite so bad. Why am I not eating bananas, you ask? Well, a little while ago I came across the Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox, a natural cleansing and supplement […]

New Training Program Drops Today!

Hello everybody and happy Saturday! I’m very excited to release my next training program today! Last month focused on building muscular endurance while using minimal equipment.

Fit Tip Friday Except it’s Saturday: Supersets, Compound Sets, Tri Sets, Drop Sets…What’s the Deal?!

Always a day late and a dollar short 😉 Just like everything in life, the fitness world can be kind of confusing and complicated at times. It’s hard enough to know where to start. We may have to muster up the courage and the money to hire a personal trainer. We may have to spend […]

Sun’s Not Out…But Can My Guns Still Be Out?

Ahhh fall is definitely upon us here in Vancouver. It’s back to bringing my umbrella everywhere I go regardless of whether it’s currently raining or not (because there’s an 80% chance it’ll start out of nowhere), tucking my Lululemons into my Uggs in the most unfashionable way to avoid the bottoms getting wet, and regularly […]

Telling My IT Band to Shove It

4 days until Seawheeze! Things are a little different this time around. By this time during my last 1/2 I had an apartment full of carbs prepped and ready to be eaten in disgusting quantities, god knows how many miles under my belt over the 12 weeks prior, and a sense of accomplishment in knowing […]
