20% Off Superfoods

I was recently sent some new protein to try. Its Called Bipro. They sent me vanilla, chocolate and unflavoured. I tried them before I entered prep and I was really impressed. The Vanilla is 90 calories, 0g of fat, 1g of carb with 22g protein. The chocolate is 90 calories, 0.5g of fat, 2g of carb with 20g protein. The unflavoured is 80 calories, 0g of fat, 0g of carb with 20g protein.

A little bit about the company and my findings:

BiPro whey protein isolate has been available in the U.S. for more than 30 years and is used by elite and major league athletes, coaches and sports nutrition experts. Starting in July 2016, BiPro will finally be available in Canada through It will also be sold in specialty stores as of this fall.

High in protein, including branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), to help enhance training and improve endurance

  • One of the purest WPI products on the market, with a 97% purity level
  • Made with 100% whey protein isolate, with no other protein sources added
  • Fast-absorbing and easy to digest
  • NSF-certified
  • Naturally gluten-free
  • Short ingredients list

BiPro will be offered in a 907 g (2 lbs.) jars as well as boxes with 14 individual packets. You have the choice of Unflavoured, Chocolate or French Vanilla.

I was honestly really impressed with the taste and quality. I like that it is high in protein with BCAA in it. It was easy to digest and I believe it that they say its one of the purest whey's on the market with a 97% purity level. Its also naturally gluten free and there are only a few ingredients therefore it clearly isn't packed with fillers or chemicals.


If you are busy and on the go a great way to get your daily nutrition can be through a shake. You can literally grab the packets and throw them into your purse, mix them up in little to no time and enjoy!

Skinny Shake recently sent us samples to try over here at Train It Right! Their chocolate and vanilla flavours contain 16g of protein, 25 vitamins and minerals and are only 140 calories.With the added benefit of:

Goji Berry
Chia Seed Powder
Horseradish Tree Leaf (Moringa)
& more!

If you look at the ingredients a lot of it comes from fibre. And we wouldn't really count what they count as carbs at all as most aid in the digestion process.

We found that it tasted good, clean and mixed well with water when we tried it. The company recommends to add about 8oz of liquid. At Train It Right we recommend water, almond milk or cashew milk for easy digestion. Mix it in a shaker cup for best results and enjoy. For recipes ideas visit their recipe section on their website.

Hey Guys!

Equilibrium Superfood 12 Ounce

Equilibrium Superfood 2.3 Ounce

Happy Holidays! I want to share with you my review of a new product that I was sent! Its called Equilibrium! As you know I promote fitness and health and I tell you all my opinions on products and supplements so this is no different. I tried it. I love it. And I want to share it with you guys!

(DONT JUDGE MY NAILS - I need a manicure)

What is it? Equilibrium is the evolution peak of superfoods.  The company that creates it is called HoneyColony.  They have created and formulated  raw honey-based blend consists of organic and wildcrafted ingredients. To create their specific blend, they actually teamed up with former Bee Panacea formulator, Gosia Reed.

About the product: At the core of Equilibrium is raw honey. Eleven other potent superfoods are added—each one organic or wildcrafted, boasting numerous health benefits. The total 12 ingredients bring harmony to a life that faces any stress, toxins, and negative energy.

How its made: Equilibirum Superfood is made in small batches to ensure high quality, exact measurements, and consistency in every jar. To ensure our product never loses integrity, we use high-quality Biophotonic jars  that only let sunlight in to improve the substances in each formula.

Equilibrium comes in three different flavors and offers three different functions. The first one, Energy, was designed for athletes or anyone who lives an active lifestyle. This is the one that they sent me. It works by naturally stimulating the nervous system, enhancing brain function, supporting muscle relief, and providing anti-inflammation support, each jar will keep you in the active zone. For those of us who who seize life in its whirlwind of activity, Equilibrium Energy offers the support you need for a mental and physical edge.

My experience: Because they sent it to me at the end of my prep for my figure show I was unable to try it right away. When I won my competition and my diet became more flexible I was able to introduce it! I decided to take a spoonful every morning as they recommended. Because I was reducing my stimulants from prep I found it very helpful with increasing my energy On top of this it was very delicious! I looked forward to taking it because it was like a nice sweet treat!

Things to know: If you count your macros or calories. Equilibrium is 25 calories per serving, 5g of carbohydrates and 3g of sugars!

I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a natural energy enhancer as an athlete or fitness enthusiast! And if you are a macro tracker during prep you may want to wait until you're off of prep.

Cubic Pharma’s Vitamin D For Indoor Lifestyles


Cubic Pharmaceuticals is a brand from the United Kingdom. They have recently made their Vitamin D supplements available across the United States. I was lucky enough to get sent some to try! I used them every day and felt an increase in my energy and alertness. The line of Cubicole Vitamin D3 came in a variety of strengths. I personally preferred the higher dosage for my active lifestyle. I actually just ran out of them and need more! I made them part of my supplement stack for all of my prep's.

“Vitamin D is well known for helping your body in a variety of ways... For example, it helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus as well as support heart health.”

What I like the most is that all of the Cubic Pharmaceutical supplements are lactose, gluten, gelatin preservative, salt, and yeast free. It is also great for vegetarians and is Halal. Non of their products havebeen tested on animals.

For more about the brand, visit: I personally can't wait to get my hands on some more of the D3!

  1. Casein Protein


Casein protein, much like whey protein, is very common. As such, it can be found from pretty much every retailer at low prices. This means that it’s affordable, and the fact that it works wonders doesn’t hurt, either.


Casein is a form of protein that releases its benefits slowly, and as such, is best used before bed. This way, you’ll be supplied with a steady flow of protein while you’re sleeping and unable to eat. It’s also useful before long car journeys, or any other time where you’ll be unable to consume food.


  1. Whey Protein


As mentioned previously, whey protein is extremely common. It’s the most-used kind of protein supplement, and as such, is very affordable. Because it’s the most common, it’s also given discounts and offers the most, and it’s easy to find more info on these.


Don’t let these low prices put you off, however. Whey protein isn’t a budget product. It’s used by bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts across the globe, and with good reason. It provides a quick fix of protein that can help repair and recover your body from an intense workout or injury.


  1. Creatine


Creatine is usually on the more expensive side of the supplement range, but it’s no less useful. Creatine is naturally produced by the body, and increases your ability to produce more energy rapidly. If you have more energy, you can lift more, and you’ll gain more muscle.


Creatine is best used in high intensity sports that don’t last very long such as weight training and sprinting. It’s mixed with a liquid - preferably fruit juice - in order to be absorbed by the body a lot quicker. If you’re looking to gain a slight edge over the competition or want to be able to move more weight, creatine is right for you.


  1. Pre-workout


Pre-workout is similar to whey and casein protein in price, but different in functionality. As the name implies, it’s meant to be taken before a workout to give you that high kick of energy and enthusiasm. You’ll feel more alive, more electric and more ready to tackle any form of physical activity.


This in mind, it’s best to be taken in moderation. You don’t want to only be able to perform after a dose of pre-workout. You want to be able to perform all the time! Pre-workout should only be used to get an extra rep or two, or to run an extra metre or two. It shouldn’t be the foundation of your whole session.


  1. Multivitamins


Everybody needs vitamins, but it can be hard to get them all. Multivitamins are probably the cheapest supplement on this list, and can be found in pretty much any store.


There isn’t much to say here, other than that if you have a deficiency, or are unable to eat a certain food, vitamins can help you out. You can bring up the area in which you are lacking, all by consuming a single tablet.

CanPrev - Core Performance Shake - Review coreshake

I recently had the opportunity to try CORE by CanPrev. It is a performance shake. They have both a mens and women version. The shake mixes well with water, juice or the milk of your choice.  It is enhanced with daily nutrition that is good for bone health, UTI support and helps balance blood sugar. So it provides proper nutritional support if you suffer from any of those problems. In addition with a healthy diet it is a great way to get the nutrients that your body needs. This is also a Canadian company and I love that. If you are wanting to try it their website gives a list of retailers as well as if you go to the website and you can even get a coupon and get $1.50 off.



According to their site: whether you’re a road warrior, an ultraracer, or ready to retire (but not from life!) you take your health seriously so you can keep doing the things you love. It shows in how you eat, how you exercise and how you live.When you need an extra healthy foundation, turn to CanPrev Core .

Two scoops pack 18grams of easily digested plant protein alkalizing leafy greens and antioxidant-rich berries like goji and acai equivalent to eight servings of fresh fruits and vegetables, therapeutic levels of cinnamon for balanced blood sugar, lycopene for the prostate and CoQ10 for the heart. Plus every serving contains 28 vitamins and minerals at dosages naturopathic doctors recommend.
Pure ingredients free of dairy, wheat, soy and nuts. Vegan with no artifical sweeteners. All in a finely tuned advanced formula you’ve ccome to expect from CanPrev.

Supercharge your day by adding CanPrev Core to your morning smoothie,juice or even cocoa

Recommended Use: Bone health and UTI support. Enhanced daily nutrition and balanced blood sugar

Peaches and Green - A Trusted  Specialty Health Store


Have you ever gone to a health food store, drug store or supplement shop in hopes of finding supplements, foods and information that will help you reach your goals? Have you ever gotten there and felt overwhelmed with mass amounts of products, foods and bottles? We all have had that experience. I know I have in the past and my current clients get this feeling all the time. Its hard when you are new to the healthy lifestyle to know what you should or should not be taking. I have had little to no help from the staff at these places.

As a personal trainer I know I want my clients to take good clean, tested and high quality products. I often give them a list of options and they still end up emailing, face booking or texting me from the store because the person behind the counter is telling them something different that I did. And most often times the information is wrong. I want to send my clients to a well established business but also where the staff is knowable, helpful and not just trying to sell you the most expensive product so that they can make a better commission.

According to their site "At Peaches & Green, we want our customers to feel confident that every product they purchase has been thoroughly reviewed for its integrity and efficacy. As one of the leading boutique health food stores in Toronto, we carry a wide variety of nutritional supplements, botanical remedies, and homeopathics. We also have a carefully selected assortment of therapeutic skin & body care, as well as delicious whole foods chosen especially for those with food sensitivities and dietary restrictions.

We support suppliers and manufacturers in our industry who are leaders in product innovation and research. Like us, they share a commitment to protecting our environment, and promoting the health of the individuals in the communities we work and live in. Visit our Products page for a complete list of the brands available. Peaches & Green is a proud Health First Network Member store - learn more about Canada's leading independent health & wellness retailers here."


I discovered Peaches and Green a few weeks ago when I was contacted to go in and experience the shop for myself. I said yes and made my way east where they are located on 1561 Bayview Avenue in Toronto. Peaches & Green is a specialty health food store in Toronto dedicated to supporting individuals on their path to wellness through natural health products and education. Located in the heart of Leaside, we have been the top destination for natural health and wellness products for over 25 years. I was greeted immediately by a smiling woman named Elizabeth and then George the owner. They were smiling and friendly from the start. Its always nice to have a warm welcome. They told me about the history of the store, the types of products that they carry and they really seemed to have a passion and desire to help give people good knowledge and help them get towards their goals. George was so intelligent about the products and the science behind them. I also discovered he knows a lot of Toronto health professionals that I know and respect. This is comforting and just really shows what 25 years of experience can provide.


After speaking with both George and Elizabeth and getting to experience the store first hand I high recommend that you shop for your health food products at Peaches and Green.  I left with some new protein, himalayan sea salts and lots of yummy samples. If you go to do you health food shopping at Peaches and Green you won't feel lost and you will leave confident that you have got the products that you need to help you get to where you want to go!

Thank you Peaches and Green for serving our community so well. I wish you all the success in the world for the next 24 years!
