During this time my social media feed is peppered with photos of meal prep, gym PRs, bikini poses and motivational quotes. It’s always exciting to watch the competition… Continue reading It’s Competition Season! Athlete or Spectator: 10 things you need to know

Meal Prep November 29th 2015

Alrighty! I’m a little late posting this because Sunday was a long day! I drove to Montreal and back to be part of the judging panel for Physique Canada, a natural bodybuilding show. Physique Canada is different than Serious About Fitness in that there are both men and women competing and the focus is more… Continue reading Meal Prep November 29th 2015

Bikini & Fitness Model Competitions – My Thoughts as a SAF Judge

In just about a week I will be heading to Toronto for the Serious About Fitness September show. Not as a competitor but as a judge – a task I find almost as challenging as the stage itself.

Most of this weekend was spent at the SAF Toronto show where I hosted the event. It was such a great time!
