Are you looking to get the beach body you want for summer? You won’t get a perfect midsection, bigger lifts, or better performance without a strong base. I’m thinking it’s time you put a bigger focus on your core.
When people think of their core they immediately think it’s all about the abs. That is actually only one piece of the puzzle.
Every muscle relies on your abs, hips, and lower back. THAT is your core. The lower back seems to be the one area that gets neglected the most so here are a couple of simple exercises to get you started.
Lay flat on your stomach with your arms out in front of you, palms to the floor. Lift your arms and legs from the floor. You will feel the contraction in your lower back muscles. Hold for 10 seconds then relax. Although it doesn’t really look like you are doing anything, this exercise is very deceiving and I guarantee you will feel the burn.
This one is very similar to the last exercise but with a tiny variation. Lay flat on your stomach just as before. Lift your right arm and your left leg at the same time. Hold for 10 seconds, relax, and switch. It works your lower back muscles a little differently but is just as effective. You always want to switch it up just to keep your muscles guessing.
So there you go! Throw these in to your workout at the gym or at home!
The snow is gone and all of us in Vancouver that LOVE hiking know what that means. The GRIND is finally open! If you haven’t had a chance to do the Grouse Grind you are definitely missing out. The trail climbs 853 metres over 2.9 km. With an average grade of 17 degrees it’s affectionately known as ” mother nature’s stairmaster”.
This year, Grouse Mountain Resorts is asking outdoor enthusiasts to put their hike toward a good cause by signing up for Grind For Kids, a fundraising initiative for B.C. Children’s Hospital. The program encourages trail users to get friends and coworkers to pledge a dollar for every time they complete the hike over the summer and to submit the funds at the end of the season. You can purchase an electronic time-card at the base of the Grind to track your progress online.

These days, everything is made quick and easy. You can answer emails, calls, or even run a business from your phone. What about lunch or dinner? Same thing. Meals are already done for you and can be microwaved in a matter of minutes.
For me personally, before I started on the 90 Day Challenge, the last thing on my mind was nutrition. I was always in a rush throughout the day and the last thing I thought about was eating a well-balanced and healthy diet.
Then I got introduced to the Vi-Shape Nutritional Shape Mix.
You honestly can’t find a better product for the price. For breakfast, I would head to Tim Hortons or McDonald’s to get a breakfast sandwich. Not the best choice, but it was quick and simple solution to feed the hunger. When you look at the big picture, loading up on 820g of sodium and 400 calories of garbage isn’t the best idea when you want to get into shape.It literally takes me 5 minutes to make a vi-shake and I get the complete nutrition I need - FAST

Is it really more expensive to eat healthy? A study in the U.S. shows that might not actually be the case.
For most people trying to change their diet, one of the biggest concerns is the cost of food. In reality, it really depends on the way you look at it.
The U.S. government believes it’s how you measure the price. If you compare the price per calorie, processed snacks and other junk food seem like a complete steal when you compare them to fruits and vegetables. But, if you compare the cost of food by portion size or weight, vegetables, fruit, and dairy foods are less expensive than foods high in saturated fat, added sugars or salt.
I read today that a report from the University of Washington suggested that “calorie-for-calorie junk food is more cost-effective for low-income people than eating healthy”.
Obesity is a growing problem. Not only in the U.S., but Canada as well. More than a third of U.S. adults are obese according to the U.S. government, and researchers expect that number to grow to 42 per cent by 2030. That my friends, is an epidemic.
It may look like that bag of Doritos is a great deal at $2 and in the end, will probably fill you up. But, those empty calories are not giving your body the nutrition it desperately needs to get you through the day.
Shop smart and healthy eating can be more affordable. Can’t afford fresh fruit or vegetables? Try frozen or canned. Trust me, your body and mind will thank you later!
