Your New Healthier Lifestyle Begins With A Solid Foundation

I know there are many of you out there who want to start eating better, who want to start exercising regularly, who dream of a leaner, stronger body.  It can all be done with the proper focus and determination along with the right guidance and group surrounding you making some of those tougher days a bit easier.  I have never once even suggested a lifestyle change it easy, it`s not, it takes work, sacrifice discipline and a good support network.  Now is the time to stop thinking about it and take action, YOU are worth it, YOU deserve it, YOU are ready and YOU can and WILL do it.

Enter the Caveman Strong Foundation program for beginners.  This 4 week 12 session package tackles everything the beginner needs when entering the cave (gym).  The program is designed to test you from day one and track your progress over the 4 week period so you can see and feel the results.  The Foundation program covers all the bases with explicit detail on technique for all squat variations (body weight, goblet, split, back, front, overhead) as well as many other movements.  It also covers the basics of the Paleo diet to get you on your way to better eating habits.  A new feature will be some mobility work to help you move properly as well as make people more flexible and functional and moving the way they were designed to move.  The mobility side of things can help reduce or eliminate lower back pain, knee pain and other small aches and restrictions.

I look forward to working with you and getting you on route to the health and fitness you`ve been thinking about.  The important part is remembering to enjoy the journey.  Don`t forget how long it took to get you in your current condition and be prepared to work for 4 weeks and beyond to get to that end goal.  This 4 week program is the foundation to the new healthier lifestyle and it can start right now.  Park the excuses at the door and jump right in…you`ll be glad you did.

Here are a few testimonials from previous Foundation grads:

“The coaches are all encouraging and helpful, a big reason why I have stuck with it following the Foundation program and continue to grow at it.
Kevin Hargreaves

“Had it not been for the Foundation class, I wouldn’t have joined Caveman Strong. I would have been way too intimidated. I had no experience doing anything that they do. I was out of shape. The Foundation program gave me confidence I needed to feel I could participate in regular classes. It’s a great way to kick start your new life, change your lifestyle and become a better you.”
Anne Marie Cote

“The Foundation program was tough and fun and I looked forward to it each night. The cost of the program in relation to how much healthier I am now compared to when I took Foundation is priceless.
Darcy Aitkins

“One word to describe Caveman Strong Foundation would be – transforming. The program allows you to develop skills, sort out your weaknesses and strengths and builds confidence. The coaches take the time to teach the proper techniques and notice the slightest changes in lifts, squats and speed and are always pushing you towards progress.”
Vanessa Regnier
See you all at the gym.

Blog Break During Fitness Focus: October Summary

It came to my attention over the weekend that I had not blogged even once in October.  People who come here regularly know I ama minimum once a week blogger.  My excuse is weak however I believe it to be valid.  My last post saw me launch a personal paleo challenge and this past weekend marked the end with my birthday weekend getaway in Mont Tremblant.  I still need to get measured but I lost a total of 15lbs since late September and feel great.  As I sit here today I am back on the paleo train and plan on staying on with one treat meal per week with no end date.  My goal is to make this the final blog post about how I feel so good and energetic when I eat clean and regret falling to 80-20 or 70-30.  I am still chasing the ultimate goal and the blips need to end. 

On the weekend, we were in Tremblant with 3 other couples for a getaway and on Saturday morning we hiked for a little over 2 hours on Mont Tremblant.  I am pleased to say on my 38th birthday I was able to walk up a mountain and dredge through some crappy terrain with relative ease.  I was breathing heavy a few times but the body held up fine and all the strength work in the gym paid off with little to no soreness afterwards.  I am bringing out an old statement here but I will have done more between the age of 35 and 50 than 20 and 35.  I would have NEVER agreed to a hiking trip on my 25th birthday…sad I know.


I spent a day at Carleton Place High School teaching olympic lifting and seeing the interest and effort from the close to 75 students I saw that day was more than energizing as a coach.  My hat is off to coach-teacher Brian Dickie who has developed one hell a program out there which should be replicated across the province and country.  Nice work coach!

I continue to accept private clients.  My schedule becomes a bit more flexible in November so if you are interested in seeing what I can do for you call or email me and we can set up a free consultation.  613.360.7373… .  Testimonials from current clients coming soon.

I am also helping finalize the Caveman Strong school program.  This week I will be contacting local schools to try to get them on the strength training bandwagon and help the students gain more than just better health and strength but self-confidence and belief as well as an increased focus level for their studies.  Interested teachers feel free to contact me if it takes me a while to get to you.

That`s my quick hit for October and I will definitely be more active here moving forward.  Thanks for sticking it out and I hope to see you at the gym.

I leave you with a great pic and saying Céline found on the web…let it sink in….

Be Great!
