We are all in the same boat, minimizing social interactions and staying home as much as possible. There’s a lot we can do to prevent getting this potentially deadly virus other than avoiding the world. A strong immune system will prevent you from getting many ailments and fighting off the ones you do get much…

One thing I love about bodybuilding or ‘body sculpting’ is being able to change your physique to the look you want; within reason of course. I used to be pear shaped and my shoulders were far too narrow for my big head and wide hips lol…now if anything, my hips need a bit more width….

David, an army veteran, came to us after years of being in pain and finally fed up with struggling to do the daily tasks most of us take for granted. He had to take breaks while washing dishes because he couldn’t stand for that long, relied on a cane to walk, had chronic shoulder and…

We all know the benefits of weight training, especially when we lift heavy and create the stress response. It’s when we lift that the hormones which elicit growth (namely, testosterone and growth hormone)  are at their highest. A way to piggyback on this surplus is to finish your workouts with a few sets hitting the…

Most of us know by now the importance of the key components in losing fat and getting stronger: train hard (heavy resistance training), do cardio, eat well, and recover (get enough sleep, etc). If you’re not balancing your sympathetic system (think adrenaline) with your parasympathetic system (rest & digest) then you won’t get far in…

For the last few days, I’ve had a nasty cold and despite sleeping lots, and taking my vitamins, getting a good sweat helps get the toxins and infection out quicker; especially when there’s a deep nasty cough involved :(. This is what I do to speed up recovery from a cold, and even follow as…

Recently I started incorporating IF (intermittent fasting) to my routine to see if the purported benefits were as good as the studies say. And I have to happily admit, they are better than I expected. I’m leaner than I’ve been in a long time; I’m literally 2-3 pounds away from stepping on stage and competing…

  I don’t know about you, but I have never questioned nutrition labels before. Call me naive but I always trusted what was stated on the label was true. Didn’t we all? …. Luckily, we have a governing body called the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) that does this for us.   They follow strict…

For anyone looking to bio hack their health and make dieting easier, you would have heard and most likely ingested something with sugar alcohols. They are mostly synthetic products (man-made), except for a couple, that taste like sugar, have a negligible effect on blood sugar, but have minimal or no calories, or so we thought……

Whether we love it or hate it, Winter is here and that means less time outdoors and less exposure to the sun. It may not seem like it should really affect us, but it does. When vitamin D exposure is hindered, it results in less serotonin release (the ‘happy’ hormone), less energy, poorer mood, more…
