Knowledge is Power
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, as well as in many common food additives. It’s
what gives dough its elasticity and baked goods their satisfying chewiness. But for people with celiac disease - a type of autoimmune disorder - eating foods that contain gluten can lead to a cascade
of nasty reactions, including damage to the small intestine, poor nutrient absorption, diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight gain, bloating, anemia, and fatigue.
Join Ellen Bayens of The Celiac Scene™ for a walk
& talk through the gluten-free aisles of
Planet Organic
(109-3995 Quadra St @ McKenzie)
Saturday October 15th at 10am
&
Lifestyles Market
(2950 Douglas Street)
Saturday October 22nd at 10:30am
It is estimated that 1 in 100
Canadians suffer from celiac disease.
You are 10 times more likely to suffer
from an additional autoimmune disease
if you have celiac disease.
Get the gluten-free goods from diagnosis to diet
and empower yourself with information, ideas
and optimism!

THE U LTI M AT E F IT NE SS FACE O F F
What has been your hardest
challenge so far?
Finding a set time to workout with my schedule has
been the hardest challenge, but I realize there is always time for something if you really want it. I don’t
really set a specific time aside in my day for exercise
but do 20-minutes here and there. I force myself to do
something small when I can, which always ends up
leading to more.
What is keeping you motivated?
It’s time to get back to where I should be and knowing people are following my progress is very motivating to keep at it. Beating Troy is just a bonus!
What exercises have you been focusing
on?
I’ve been focusing on climbing Mt. Finlayson and
other hill hikes to get ready for the hike challenge in
a record time. I am hoping to be around 25-minutes.
Currently I am 32:30 from 36-minutes so I can see an
improvement.
I have also been strength training to put on size. I do
10 x 4 training which means two exercises of opposite muscle groups for 10-12 reps and 4 sets with no
rest. It saves me time and I can get more done as well.
Are you following a balanced nutrition
program for this challenge?
What are your goals for the month of
October?
My goals are to keep working on hill climbing, leg
endurance, increase muscle size, and of course, decrease
body fat.
Can you pass on a helpful tip?
Have a plan and stick to it. Not everyday goes as planned
but just start fresh again the next day.
Everything I make is from scratch so I know what is
in my food. Trying new recipes and taking time to
cook and prepare meals ahead of time is key. I know
that if I plan out what I am going to eat for the week
that there is less chance of getting hungry and cheating. I was never that bad before but it is so easy to
get off track now and again. For this challenge I have
completely cut out any processed foods and refined
sugars.
Try Paul’s Quinoa Cereal recipe for your morning breakfast ......

•1/2cup uncooked Quinoa

What has been your hardest
challenge so far?
My hardest challenge so far is sticking with a regular routine
and workout schedule. And listening to Paul’s never-ending
babble about the challenge.
What is keeping you motivated?
Nothing. To be honest I’m not very motivated right
now. If I could back out of the challenge right now I
would because I feel far behind. But I know there is a lot
of people depending on me to finish this challenge so I
am going to step up my game.
What exercises have you been focusing
on?
I have been doing my hikes still at Goldstream Park,
Skaffe Mountain, and Tod Inlet. I go with my buddy
Vance because he knows a lot of different routes and
keeps me going. He wants to see me beat Paul in the
end.
Are you following a balanced nutrition
program for this challenge?
What are your goals for the month of
October?
My goal is to work out at the gym everyday as well as incorporting my regular hikes on top of that.
Can you pass on a helpful tip?
Don’t take on a challenge without realizing you have to put
in 100% effort into it. Go day by day and then it doesn’t
seem as daunting.
My nutrition has definitely stepped up compared to
what I was eating before. Although my dedication to
my fitness program is lacking I am putting in the effort with my nutrition. What I’m doing is buying my
food for each day at the local markets in the morning. I
find it more convenient because the markets have great
variety and the food is always fresh. I’m eating a high
protein diet with lots of lean chicken, eggs everyday,
cottage cheese and veggies. I eat very basic so there is no
cooking involved, which saves me time because I hate
cooking-honestly!
Because Troy doesn’t cook he relies on his good friends to drop off meals at
the gym for him. Try Troy’s favourite Moose Balls..........

What is An Exercise Orientation?
New to strength training? The exercise orientation is a
basic introduction to some of the machines and more
common exercises that you will see in the weight room.
With a focus on proper form and safety, you will gain
confidence as you learn different exercises that you can
incorporate into your workouts.
Hit a plateau? The exercise orientation is not just for
beginners. If you are more advanced you can achieve a
more balanced workout and continue to see results by
learning how to incorporate new exercises and equipment
into your strength training routine.
Please contact Fitness Consultant/Training Manager,
The smallest change can make the biggest difference!
Hayley Jewer, for more information on the exercise
orientation and other personal training options.
Member Recognition
Derrick Nickerson is naturally very lean and has struggled with gaining lean body mass.
In less than 2 months Chris Woeller has helped Derrick gain 25 lbs. by teaching proper
strength training methods and by incorporating more food into his diet at the right
times of day. This takes dedication on both ends. Both the client and the trainer are
kicking butt!
