If there is one thing that I have learned in all my years as a professional athlete it’s that health and performance are directly related. I’m sure most of you know that, but I am not just talking about physically training to be healthy. I mean full body health: mental, emotional and physical, all combined together. The second thing I have learned is that and simplicity really helps alleviate many of the stresses associated with getting everything done that needs to be completed every day. Throughout the years, I have developed a routine that truly hits all the notes when…

There are few things in the world that can compete with the feeling of running straight towards the edge of a 2,300ft cliff. Especially when it’s The Chief in Squamish B.C.  The range of emotions and physical feelings are so vast and the excitement is palpable. These sensations are only amplified when forced to stand at the top, completely geared up, waiting for wind conditions to improve from hellacious to something a little more ideal. Waiting for wind conditions is a funny thing. Necessary, yet equally frustrating. It forces participants to remain in the prepared space for longer than normal….

I consider myself to be a very motivated person. I have goals both big and small… Ok big goals might be downplaying them a bit. I have extremely lofty goals! If there is one thing that I have realized in my life, about the pursuit of what I love and trying to accomplish goals is…Every person, no matter how motivated and driven or goal orientated they may be experiences doubt. Whether it be self doubt, doubt about their path, their goals, their success. Doubt some how always creeps in and plagues our minds even if it is just for a…

It’s so funny to me how motivation and working out go hand in hand. It’s hard for me to get motivated to work out but then once I do, I feel so much more motivated in my life! That’s where BodyBoss comes in! I’ve always loved working out, ok well maybe that’s a lie, but I have always loved how I feel after I work out. That surge of energy, the rush of endorphins and the over all feeling of being capable of total world domination – And that’s exactly what I love about BodyBoss! I’m into Week 4 of…

This is something that’s been on my mind for a very long time now. I’ve known I wanted to write about it for equally as long, but I was never really sure exactly what I wanted to say. I struggled with taking this emotion, this feeling I had deep within me and translating it into words. Not just words, but words that could be felt (not just understood). I’ve waited some time now and the words still feel scattered in my head but I can’t wait any longer. Women are an unstoppable force, but only if we get out of…

Bright faced and stars in their eyes, everyone always thinks that the New Year will be their year! I love to see the motivation in everyone. The list making and dream planning, all the big ideas and positive changes that are voiced on various forms of social media. It truly is a magical time of year mainly because of the energy that everyone is putting out! It is sad to me to see all of the positivity and plans fade away as the days in the new year tick by. Going to the gym 5 days a week turns to 3…

I love to see people doing what they love and making it work. Sitting around and waiting for the things you want to just be laid out in front of you will never work. If you want something, If you want to accomplish something you have to go for it full force until you either lose interest or accomplish it! When I see people charging forward in life it brings me so much joy. When I see a 10 year old going for what they want, regardless of what others might say is even more inspiring! Bayla is an incredible…

I think it is safe to say that I really enjoy pushing myself. Most people say I like to scare myself. I guess that’s fair. A lot of the things that I do would scare most people and I really enjoy that nervous feeling. What I love even more is pushing through that nervous feeling and not letting it stop me from experiencing really unique and amazing things. It is my full belief that we fear what we don’t understand, when we educate ourselves on what ever thing is scaring us it becomes less daunting and that fear subsides… Even…

There are many things that I’m not amazing at. But I have this aspect of my personality where I really want to be good at everything right away. So when I’m not, it just motivates me to charge harder. When I fail…. Well I always come back to give it another go. Riding the Whole Enchilada was no different! The first time I tried my hand at it I had only been riding Mountain Bikes for about 2ish months and lets just say it was a trying experience. I was underprepared, exhausted, hungry and tired about half way into the…

It’s no lie, the United States has some pretty spectacular landscape. Scenery that will not just leave you speechless, but will evoke this overwhelming emotion that cannot be easily explained.  They are a reminder of what once was and a blatant example of what is almost gone. To me it instills this sense of urgency, to protect what little we have left of the beauty that once surrounded us. To always remember, in everything we do, what our impact truly is. Visiting National Parks is an emotional and eye opening experience. And in all the years tourism has just kept…
