A BIG BIG thank you to everyone who came out and/or donated to the fundraiser event that we had last Saturday through Vancouver Fit Body Boot Camp!
The event was a huge success and so much fun!
We had about 40-45 people that attended throughout the 3 hours of the event with about 35-40 sticking around for almost the entire event.
In total through admissions we raised $575!! Plus food donations for the kids that attended and a portion of the proceeds from the products and vitamins sold that day are being finalized and added to that total.
As a bonus, we had so many prizes donated by myself and local businesses that over half of all the people that attended walked away with products, gift cards or free services.
A big thanks for donating prizes to:
Hush Hair Salon
Hot Shots Tanning Studio
She to Shic
Stock Up Cafe
What a fantastic way to celebrate the 4th year anniversary of Vancouver Fit Body Boot Camp being open, running and changing lives!
Check out some of the pictures and video below from the event!

I want to talk to you today about something that is a little misunderstood…. Obesity.
If you have heard or paid any attention to stats over the last 5-10 years then you know that the world’s population (especially in North America) is getting more and more overweight and obese. Experts are also saying this generation or the next could be the first that lives a shorter life than their parents due to obesity.

Its that time of year again where the sun is starting to show itself more, it is getting warmer. For my 6am boot campers, it is actually light outside when we wake up!
And of course the season for the swimsuit is just around the corner.
With that being said, this time of year I get a lot of emails from ladies telling me how they would want their legs and butt to look toner for their bikini.

Another wet day in Vancouver but what else do you expect! Besides this is still one of the most beautiful places to live and I’ll take it any day compared to the weather they get out East.
I have a question for you.
How much sugar do you eat each day?
I can bet money that 95% of you are eating a lot more sugar than you think and it is causing you to plateau or slowly gain weight. Even if you have cut sugar out of your diet I bet you are getting it in this form. I have seen many of my Vancouver boot camp clients fail to know this.
Check out this quick 3 minute video here from your Vancouver boot camp instructor:
From your Vancouver boot camp instructor and friend, have a great day and watch the sugar!

Watch last weeks video here: Vancouver Holistic Nutritionist Shares Top 5 Foods to Avoid for Weight Loss
As a Vancouver holistic nutritionist, getting people to not eat certain things is part of what she does but even more important is what to add into your diet in replacement of the things you are taking out.
That is exactly what Ashley talks about in the video below.
Hope you take this information from your Vancouver Holistic nutritionist and apply it into your daily life as best as you can!

Alright I have a treat for you today as I have a Vancouver Holistic Nutritionist here today to help you out with your weight loss goals.
Now briefly before I move on,
Why did I speak to a Vancouver Holistic nutritionist instead of a dietician?
Because in my experience in the past, Vancouver holistic nutritionists put a much heavier focus and emphasis on whole foods and balancing your body with real ingredients as opposed to foods that have been processed.
I have in the video below Ashley Giordano from www.inyourownskin.net and she is sharing the top foods/ingredients that you need to avoid if your goal is to lose weight and fat off of your body. She is a registered Vancouver holistic nutritionist and specializes in

Today’s post is more like a story and a letter combined into one for you focused around your new years resolution. Enjoy!
Once upon a time, there was this High School Cross Country team, and every week they would run a race..
Every week 50 runners would start, and as the race went on, the stronger ones started to pull ahead, and the weaker ones fell behind..
But not for this kid called Ben.
Ben is not the fastest runner on the team, he has never won a race, and most likely never will.

Vancouver Fit Body Boot Camp is going strong, life is amazing and things are just awesome.
I am recovered from my nose surgery and getting back into the full swing of things again with starting to exercise again and just in time as in 8 days I am flying out to go on my delayed honeymoon with my gorgeous wife Renee down to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for one week at a 4.5 star all inclusive resort!
If you didn’t get a chance to check out the pictures from the wedding just click on the one below. Our photographers were amazing and gave us some amazing memories through their shots! Will Pursell Photography.
And as a bonus here’s the new nose of your Vancouver Fit Body Boot Camp Instructor.

Does it matter whether you eat Vancouver whole foods or are the calories from packaged foods the same?
All calories are NOT equal!
Therefore there is a huge difference whether you eat Vancouver whole foods as opposed to any ole food you will get in the store.
You see the majority of foods we eat as North Americans now is heavily processed. What does this mean?
Essentially our Vancouver whole foods are not whole anymore.
They have been broken down, processed, refined, other processed and synthetic ingredients have been added to add substance or flavour. Or they have been genetically modified.
All this processing and refining leads to the nutrient density of foods being reduced dramatically and therefore much of them become what you may have heard before, “empty calories”. So you are adding calories into your diet with no nutritional value and therefore your body treats them that way and ends up storing them as fat on your body. If there is nothing in it that the body can use it just gets stored as a potential energy source for the future.
If you take the alternative however and eat Vancouver whole foods and foods that are in their natural, unprocessed form the body has something to utilize and will make use of the nutrients it is ingesting.
So all calories are definitely not created equal. This is exactly why with any of my clients my first focus is not to reduce the number of calories they are eating but to change the types and quality of the food they are eating. Reducing the number of calories off the bat will work but only for so long and you will have to change the types of food you are eating to continue seeing results.
The more Vancouver whole foods you can have over anything that comes in a bag, box or plastic or metal container the better (aside from pre-packaged whole grains).
