I just got a box of Macro Bars in the mail with some Ellie Goulding vouchers inserted in them- you can win a workout with Ellie and her trainer! That would be so amazing; she's in super shape and it would be so cool to see what exercises she does to get that way.



Not only do you get the workout, it's an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles for a one-on-one workout with Ellie + her trainer:  https://gomacro.com/workoutwithellie/(last day to enter is August 31st).
Like I said, I have a box of Macro Bars which are around $4/bar here in Canada. They're organic and vegan but still pack some flavorful punch!

I would love to send you some bars with the coupon codes to enter for the free training session with Ellie Goulding.

Please leave below a comment on your favorite workout move, for example Burpee Push Ups! and let me know why it's your favorite exercise, as well as a link or photo of you doing the exercise. I hope to see some fun and interesting exercises.

Getting Certified in Nutrition

Have you ever thought about learning more about nutrition?

There are plenty of courses out there, and as I was searching I found this one which looks very thorough.

There are so many nutrition courses out there it's hard to know which one is the best. Obviously unless you become a registered dietitian or nutritionist, you can't give the same kind of nutrition advice, but it's good to have some background to give out helpful tips and ideas on eating well to your clients.

Even if it's just for yourself, you may be interested in taking a nutrition course.

This company offers some free CEC's for fitness professionals that I've used before- some are webinars and others you read online. Great idea!

Of course you can read online articles about nutrition, but so many things contradict each other it's hard to know what's legitimate sometimes.

All the best on your nutrition journey!
