Get Shredded on Plants

Think you can’t build muscle on a plant-based diet?
Think again…

If you are athletic, you might think the idea of going plant-based is absurd. The common belief is that protein (mostly from animals) is the optimal nutrition needed for building muscle and increasing strength (or simply surviving).

The reality is that you don’t need nearly as much protein as you think and any man or woman, including you, can build a strong, lean body on a whole food plant-based diet.

Fuelling & Recovering for Peak Performance?
Don’t look past the power of plants!

Plants are the cleanest and most effective fuel source for our bodies.

Especially in endurance events, athletes are shying away from meat and dairy during their training, and instead are moving to a plant-based diet.

I won a RADRoller All In Kit as part of Sweat Across Canada workout series prize September 7th from IMPACT Magazine. After giving them my information and not hearing back from anyone in over a month. I've reached out by Instagram, email, Facebook and phone calls and no response. I’m just wondering if anyone else has experienced this after winning a prize from IMPACT Magazine. #poorcommunication #IMPACTMagazine #RADRoller #noresponse #disappointed

I've been searching high and low for your Jan/Feb 2019 issue featuring Canada's top fitness instructors as I helped nominate your cover girl Martine Yzerman and would love to have a copy to keep. I've seen them in the past at several businesses around town (for free) but no luck so far this January. Are they out? Where can I find a copy? Thanks!

Got some Pan-Am Canadian Masters Weightlifting Comp results to share! Coach Ferg went 6 for 6 on his lifts! Snatched 35kg and Clean and Jerked 46kg (1kg over BC Masters). Brenda Fergusson completed all three snatch lifts for a best of 25kg and her Clean and Jerk was 33kg! Two GOLD medals each. One for Canadian and one for PanAm.
