Looking for my Weight Lifting Book?

I also have a weight lifting guide publish on Amazon as an EBOOK.  

My guide is intended to teach beginner’s how to use basic machines, free weight exercises, and cable machines.  I also include a ton of visuals and detailed descriptions for each exercise.

The book is 50 pages and also includes details on how to warm up, foam roll, and cool down effectively.

The guideline of the book is structured as a 6 week learn to lift weights program where I walk you through exactly what to do over 6 weeks to teach yourself the basic lifts.  It was designed as part of the Women Weight Lifting class I run at the YWCA Health and Fitness Centre.  I decided to publish the book online for any of my blog readers who don’t live in Vancouver and can’t get access to the information.

I talk about breathing properly, form and technique, getting the most from your workout, and how to structure your program once you are done the 6 week learning to lift phase.

Here is the link to the book, which I am selling for $9.99.

A Walking Adventure on Pender Island
Walking is one of my favourite activities.  I find the repetitive motion meditative, and love blasting through podcasts, while I hike around beautiful places.  It is refreshing, rejuvenating, and I get most of my best ideas and inspiration from a good long walk. This was one of the reasons why I decided to go on […]

Saturna island is a tiny island, just 12 square miles in size, located between Vancouver and Victoria and is one of the 5 main southern gulf islands.  Although it is the closest to Vancouver it is by far the least populated with year round residents and gets the least amount of visitors, which was evident […]

Bike, Hike, and Camp Whistler

What to do when someone calls you fat
Earlier in the week I overhead a comment that sounded like someone was speaking about how I have gained weight.  I cannot 100 % guarantee this was the comment, but whether or not it actually happened is beyond the point.  People make rude comments to each other about age, weight, height, life choices etc. all […]
