Episode #30 Introducing the time of change. Our last and final episode ️

When is it time for change? This episode is a segway for my new adventure and how this displays a great deal of change. * * ️ * * But how do we as a culture navigate through these endeavours from person to person? * ️ * Sometimes change comes when we least expect it or we maybe we can sit in a space where we can take some time to reflect... The idea is to create that change at the right time. Now, it’s the space of time that create change. Or maybe transform into something better. My dearest friend Alicia has had a big impact in my life as she comes with so much wisdom. She would be considered to have an old soul. I’m excited to share this topic because I feel anyone can resonate as we all go through these experiences one way or another. This is a longer segment. For good reason. I have lots to say about this particular topic. All in love ️ When it’s time for you to listen to this segment, learn in your way maybe it was meant for you...

Episode #29 How can you use your breath to your advantage? Use it for all over health at least.

Breathing we certainly take for granted.. Breath work should be considered as a workout really. Like the way you make time to meditate or workout or just you time. I feel this gets us ready for when we really need it. We have this defence mechanism implanted in us for the scary times like when we’re getting chased by something that could possibly eat us or we see our deathbed during a time of running. But in this day and age we have all these things that put us in this place. Like the day-to-day things that stress us out. Now during these stressful times this type of breath work could really come in handy! They’re all different kinds of breath work that help us be our better selves. And this can be during transformational times, during stressful times, or when you have purposely raise your heart rate like working out or training. This segment is merely my thoughts and experience on this topic. Being that this week is mental health awareness week this is a perfect time to release s...

What does one think of before competing? Introducing Austin Evans and Keith Valeros

Everyone is so different but yet we can be so much the same. To get ready for a high stress situation like a competition, big fight, or a race we have to do things to help manage our mind. To keep focussed at the prize at hand comes in various variations of tactics. The main ones have to be considered is proper sleep, diet and hydration. Everything in between can vary depending on who you are as a person. But what came up the most words how to manage the mindset! First off is to take out any negative talk. Negative talking manifest into so many things from stress to lack of sleep to self-doubt. The other big one was who you’re surrounding yourself with. Your support system has so much to do with helping gain the confidence so we can be your best selves. These two guests are used to living competitively. First guest Austin was interviewed during his competition and Keith was interviewed outside of competition. I feel both brought a lot of value. I’m excited to share these two exper...

From Athlete to motherhood. Meet Audrey!

Welcoming myself back! Took the summer off to focus on myself and the family as when school is out, routines do not exist much in our household. But most important this introduction of Mrs Audrey Robert is a passionate young individual in the CrossFit world. What makes her so special is the experience of being an athlete to motherhood. As many know the transition from not having a child to having one is massive and life-changing! The importance of sharing this part series is sometimes as a new mother (if you’re not engaged in parent groups) we can feel very alone in our feelings and they’re not always positive. Sometimes we have postpartum and don’t even know it. Which will create a small space within ourselves. But being a new mother isn’t always a bad thing as our bodies are meant to bear children. It does so much for our body physically, internally and for our well-being. There is something about creating a small human inside of us that develops this unconditional love you ma...

Episode #26 Another holistic approach and all questions asked with the beautiful Jordan Bruce.

There are few things that actually keeps us alive and in this segment we reveal all what we wonder about our health and what we put into our body to accommodate what we think our needs are. Learning about our bodies and what makes it tick is a forever journey. It can be overwhelming because there are so much information out there. But overall health seems to be key when it comes to longevity. Now if your not feeling good, how long do you want to feel that way? This might be a short life in the grand scheme of things but in human years 10, 20+ is a long time to be tired, depressed, sore, bloated so on and so fourth. We have three things we need to consume for our optimal health. The key is to find the right combination that’s RIGHT FOR YOU. Your macro’s. Fat, protein and carbs. When we lack what our bodies need that’s when we have complications. We may not always see what’s happening inside our bodies but it’s how we are feeling can determine what we need to consume to feel bett...

Episode #26 Another holistic approach and all questions asked with the beautiful Jordan Bruce.

Meet these big mouth bad asses Tara & Jen who display a don’t give a shit attitude. It’s refreshing!

Why was this episode so important to me? A few things really... I really enjoy shenanigans. I love making light of things when things are supposed to be serious. I feel like there’s too many things in this world to be serious about and when it comes to physical health through training and good company I love laughing! Laughing brings out those feel-good endorphins along with the same endorphins that come out when you’re training. When you’re feeling good when you’re doing something hard like training it is much more enticing to go back to do it again. Like anything that we do to get that good feeling again and again. But in this way this is a very healthy way of going about it. It’s all very natural instead of using substances to get that feel good feeling which we all know is a slippery slope. When we’re training and we are not enjoying ourselves because of culture, people, or anything else that can hinder that feel good feeling really makes it so that you don’t want to do it again. We all are going to have times where we don’t feel like doing something but if we can just set that aside and do what we know is good for us and act on that we usually come out afterward feeling grateful that we went through with it. I feel being active and laughing is the perfect combination to living a healthy mental and physical life. The other point I want to get across is the opposite end of the spectrum is when we’re not feeling so good. In these times it’s important for us to feel what it is were feeling, sit with it and find a way to move on. And that is what a lot of people use the gym for! For me and many others the gym is used to release tension and stress and leaving at the door whatever happened in that day. Once you step inside that gym either if it’s by yourself or amongst your peers it is basically a new beginnings and a start to feeling better really... This segment resonates with me about not giving a shit what anybody thinks or feels about you. There is huge importance in this because when we care too much it fills our brains with things that don’t actually matter. For instance if you did not think about these things that don’t matter then you can fill that space with things that actually do. It’s really that simple! But how do we get to this place? In my experience I learned to practice all types of meditation, breathing especially, reading books that correlate with these things or podcasts. Like this one! lol Also most importantly I’m putting a disclaimer on this particular episode! We all know that I am not afraid of swearing but there is a little more swearing in this one and most likely some offensive verbiage. If you do not find a female trucker mouth entertaining or have put power behind words that everybody is finding offence these days, this episode will not be for you! Aside from all of that I am particularly stoked to introduce my good friends Tara and Jen! These two boss babes are practically attached at the hip and are sisters from a different mister. I absolutely love their energy and how they feed off each other. They are wives (besties) in and outside of the gym and always have each other’s back. You will not see judgement between these two and nothing but encouragement even though sometimes you feel like they are fighting, but I assure you they are not! If anything they use higher octave voices and motivating verbiage just to encourage each other to raise the bar for themselves. And in that I find most admirable because they still leave arm in arm with nothing but love. I want to thank these two beautiful beasts for joining me on this podcast unapologetically. I also want to thank my audience and anyone listening because getting the feedback that I’m getting and the sharing that you’re sharing, lights a fire under my ass! I hold great gratitude towards you all ️ Intro song: ‘Don’t Fucking Tell Me What To Do’ by Robyn Guests: @taracard261 & @jenniferkovacs

Meet these big mouth bad asses Tara & Jen who display a don’t give a shit attitude. It’s refreshing!

Former high level hockey player, CrossFit athlete, coach at Opus Athletics, home of Whistler, BC.

Meet Austin! Former high level hockey player, CrossFit athlete, coach at Opus Athletics, home of Whistler, BC. He does remote coaching and individual program design from the average person to the athlete. Did I mention he loves coaching?... As Austin puts it in one of his IG posts, “ it started out accidentally with a few contacts through the gym. Then it grew. Then I decided to take the OPEX coaching program to learn and grow more with individual design coaching. Now, it excites me more than ever when someone wants remote coaching. I love the connection, as well as being the guide to helping someone improve their health and fitness. It’s amazing! And it’s an easy process.” ~Austin This episode might intrigue other coaches. When you feel passionate about making relationships and connections with your clients, your forever building yourself as an individual by furthering your training and maybe considering hiring their own coach to guide them through this process. Learning what an individual needs to create a healthy platform takes a lot of research, strategizing and collaborating. Being that everybody’s recipe is going to look different it keeps us coaches on our game. To start with creating this platform is by finding out what our clients goals are. Then at that point the journey begins. Listen to what Austin’s specialty is when it comes to programming. It’s important to keep it simple but there’s 6 movement patterns that Austin uses to create his program. Goals are important. They are the precursor to our journey. Breaking down those goals make it so that everything you desire is achievable. It’s important to create wins for ourselves otherwise it’s a down hill spiral of disappointment. I’d imagine that if you’re putting the time into researching about who to contact and paying for this type of coaching you would do what you’re told! If the right plan is in place for you I can ensure immediate results. Super pumped to introduce this episode!

A mom, coach, powerlifter Gamba athlete & also holds the world record in Bench of 341lbs. @quadzilla

How we grew up believing what body beautiful was, well everything we learned was not true! What the magazines said, the look everyone was going for seem to be really hard to obtain. And, if you couldn’t obtain it that left most of us feeling not worthy. It’s only been in recent times that having a full figure or muscles was more of the attractive look. So now lifting weights seem to be what everybody was gravitating towards trying to achieve these body image goals. Something that Carina and I have in common (I know many others too) that we thought lifting weights would get us to these imaginary goals. But we then found out that there was more to it than just the way we looked. We have to understand that everybody is built so differently what works for one person may not work for the next. In Carina‘s case she was never a small framed female. In her head to get smaller was to start by lifting weights. Then she found that weights that were heavy for most were actually very light fo...

Welcoming Alexander Cameron a mental health therapist that specializes in men’s mental health...

The reason why this particular segment is so important is because our physical health has everything to do with our mental health. Meet Alex! Alex got his Masters of social work at a university of Calgary which landed him a job working with male victims of domestic abuse. He did a lot of work in counselling in advocacy while training organizations and how to work differently with men. He then taught at Mount Royal while continuing healthy masculinity work. He is now in Toronto with the private practice and doing monthly groups with men with an agency creating a branch of nontraditional conversations. Alex‘s message is mostly about being a strong male role model and challenging gender norms in toxic masculinity such as social constructionism. It is normal as humans to have excitable highs and depressing lows. But what is not considered healthy is being in these destructive lows for a long period of time. I personally can resonate with a lot of Alixis theory, philosophy and facts! He...

#21 What would seem to be a negative time of your life may just be the most important. Meet Andy!

There is nothing more fun than having an authentic conversation with a good friend. So many times have I wished I just press record in certain conversations. This time, Andrew and I planned to have such an authentic conversation we talked about Andrews experiences in life changes. As time goes on and you look behind you, you would probably call that a transformation. We all have them. They may even be called milestones. Milestones are the most memorable times of your life and when you use that as part of your life’s story it’s what makes YOU for who you are. During these heart aches and when life brings you low’s and what seems to be the end and how can you possibly move forward because it’s so challenging, these actually are what makes us so much stronger and so much better than who we were previously. Well, that’s what they’re meant for... We actually have a choice when these memorable times come. We can either sit and stay in that grieving process or we go through a time of...
