Chocolate Almond Energy Balls

Chocolate, mmmmmm! Everybody loves it, well, almost everybody. I certainly do.

Chocolate comes in many many different forms. Some good, some, not so much.

People love to grab a chocolatey snack in the afternoon. Some people grab a Kit kat, and some people, like myself, grab one of these chocolate almond energy balls.

This is a much healthier option of course, and a whole different type of delicious.

Shaping Up For Summer

Today’s guest post is written by another incredible woman and friend of mine, Tala. Tala is a personal trainer and lifestyle consultant here in Montreal. Tala’s positive energy will motivate you to work your butt off!

Be sure to check out her blog called Tala Lifestyle, and her Facebook page. Today she shares the first of 2 workouts with us to help get us moving.

The workout can be done at home, or even better at the park. Get outside and get some sun. Be sure to bring a delicious smoothie to enjoy after your workout!

Also, if you happen to live in Montreal, Tala can be found every Tuesday at lululemon athletica Ste-Catherine at 6:30pm giving a free Tabata workout. This is definitely worth checking out.

If you have been putting off getting in shape, why not start now?

Getting in Shape With Tala

Small lifestyle changes such as making a smoothie a day for 30 days can lead to big changes over time. Why not take your lifestyle and health to the next level by adding a great, quick workout to the mix? A smoothie after a workout is a great way to replenish your energy stores.

Summer is around the corner. The days are getting longer, warmer and we’re on the move to shed our winter weight to get ourselves summer ready. As a personal trainer, kinesiologist, and lifestyle coach I always encourage my clients to head outdoors when possible for a workout. I’m here to help you jump-start this summer season feeling great in your threads and skin with a quick in home workout.

The idea behind the workout that I have developed is to keep your heart pumping. This workout will be working all your muscles including your heart. But the key, is to listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right, or you have a nagging injury that is still sensitive, pay attention. The last thing you want is to find yourself injured during the best time of year!

This workout will take about 30minutes to complete in total. If you don’t have 30min, do as much as you can and be happy with what you were able to do! Remember, any amount of minutes towards your health is always better than zero minutes!

Keep track of how many reps you are doing per exercise, and how many rounds you get through and try to improve your number next time!

Let us know how you are doing! Send me a message if you have any questions.

Happy Training!
