~ A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER: PRE-WORKOUT MOJO  ~

I hope you all are having a wonderful summer! 

So I have been on holidays in the Okanagan for the past couple weeks. Getting in some much needed family time, and reconnecting with my old stomping grounds. This holiday wouldn't be possible without my rock star staff. With Body Architects 5th Birthday Bash quickly approaching I find myself reflecting on what we have built, and my heart is overflowing with gratitude. I know we have put together an A-List team of trainers that truly make us the gold standard in the personal training and health and wellness industry. 
My team are lifelong students. Constantly studying, researching and keeping their fingers on the pulse of our industry. The BA Buzz is made possible because at any given time I can request an article for any one of my staff and they have it on standby and ready to go. They are diligent with their research, addicted to personal growth, and driven by passion. I couldn't have surrounded myself with better teammates. 

"Never have I met a team and intention so nurturing towards helping you reach your goals. Their patience yet their persistence in creating within you a genuine will-power is something I will always be grateful for. Their knowledge is beyond words… however, more than anything… their kindness and want for you to succeed is next level"

~ THIS WEEKS TIP: THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATING A ROUTINE ~
Mark Wahlberg was Hollywood’s highest paid actor in 2017, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been voted man of the year in the past, and they both have some of the best physiques in Hollywood, what does this have to do with anything? Their daily routines are like no other! Now not all of us are millionaires that can afford a home gym, personal chef and in home personal trainer which makes insane routines like those much more achievable. But what you can have is a regimented routine that keeps your physical health and lifestyle in check!

Now as mentioned before, the average bear won’t be able to keep up with grossly early wake up times, multiple daily workouts and down to the minute organization, however little changes to a daily routine can be extremely beneficial. What exactly are benefits of a consistent daily/weekly workout routine? 
 

  • Consistent results
  • Balance in your life
  • Making time for the important things 

 
In terms of fitness routines, anyone who’s seen success will tell you that consistency is key. There is no way to reach a fitness goal without maintaining a routine week by week that allows your body to either burn calories or continues to progressively overload muscles and stimulate growth. Science and theory aside the average person needs between 2-5 days a week of regular exercise to see results. I’ve partaken and witnessed the rollercoaster style of exercise where you miss a week or maybe 5/6 days of workouts so attempt to ‘make up for it’ the next week by going HAM 6 days in a row only to miss the next 5 days because you’re so sore. I think a lot of people can relate to this regime and unfortunately it doesn’t work for a vast majority of people. The reason the guys mentioned above look the way that they do is consistency. 
 
      Balance is hard to achieve, physically and figuratively, lifestyle balance can be hard. Whether you’re a hard charging executive or a stay at home parent, balancing, work, social life, exercise and self-care can be exhausting and may seem like there just isn’t enough time in the day to get it all in. Sometimes there’s not, we can’t dedicate a full hour of weight lifting with corrective exercises and cooldown stretching that adds another half hour of time, some days a quick 20-30-minute blast is all you need. Being consumed by your work can cause stress, anxiety, and a plethora of health issues inside and out of the body, without balance of work, fitness and social life we become robots with stiff creaky joints!
 
      Making time is easier said than done, however not impossible. The average working adult is consumed by their work and rarely feels like they have free time to allocate to other things like taking care of their body, time with family, or other important things in their life.  One of the biggest takeaways I see in Marc Wahlberg’s daily schedule is allotted family time. For most of us having dinner at night may be the most time you see your significant other or kids. Especially as a parent, your life can become consumed by your children and their activities. Not to say you should pull your kids away from extracurricular activity or their friends, but around these things try giving yourself time to do the what’s important to you. Taking care of yourself and your body sometimes means a solo walk on a nice evening where you can be alone with your thoughts. That’s allowed! Whatever it is that makes you happy and allows you to decompress or have fun, make time for it! 
 
      Now are you going to be able to start implementing these habits tomorrow? Not necessarily, but try one at a time, make it achievable and you will see that in time these become a part of your daily and weekly routines a lot easier than it may seem right now. If you’re confused or are unsure about how to go about starting a new daily routine or writing one out, just ask! We’d love to help you adjust or improve your schedule to fit in all the important things in life!

Low Carb Crispy Turnip Fries

What You'll Need : 
(serves 4)

  • 2 Large Organic Turnips

  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil (or Coconut oil if preferred)
  • 1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder

  • 1/2 Tsp Onion Powder

  • 1 Tsp Paprika

  • Sea Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions :

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Peel turnips and cut into steak fries, about ½ inch thick.
  3. In a large bowl, toss all ingredients until turnip fries are well coated.
  4. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Flip fries and bake an additional 15-20 minutes.

Why we love this:

When you have a hankering for golden fries, these make a fantastic low carb substitute! They are suitable for many diet types - Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, even Keto Friendly. 

Turnips are loaded with fiber and vitamins K, A, C, E, B1, B3, B5, B6, B2 and folate (one of the B vitamins), as well as minerals like manganese, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and copper. They are also a good source of phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.
