    Being vegan, and worked with trainers myself, I know we face the vegan stigma(that whole how do we get our protein question is like nails on a chalkboard). So why not find vegan trainers to work out with?

    I am now personal training at ME Fitness in NE Portland, on MLK and Alberta. I can do this via the gym as a member, or you can come in privately as my guest to supplement your workouts at your own gym. Or if you wish we can just get together several times a week, and we can come up with a monthly personal training cost together.

     

    A little info about me:

    Quality of life and health. Above everything else, this is why I choose to be active in my life. My health roller coaster? I have been the overweight kid that got made fun of, the athletic teenager(even anorexic at one point), the couch surfer, and now attempting to be a fit for lifer(its an ongoing process for us all). While currently a personal trainer, I am also going to school to begin a life in the medical field. I want to help you improve your quality of life and health, it takes time, effort, and support. With personal training, I would like to be that supporting role.

     

    Personal success story:

    I was very unhealthy in my young 20’s. I always did the extra bacon, extra cheese, plus a pint of ice cream for dessert......alright sometimes a quart.(obviously before I became vegan). Thankfully a light turned on, and I began eating a more whole foods plant based nutrition, got back on a cardio program, kept up my resistance training program, and incorporated mental exercises too. In just over a year I lost 80 lbs, gained a better knowledge of self, and a greater outlook on life. I still love me some dessert in moderation, and dark chocolate is the way to my heart (hint).

     

    Feel free to meet me for one free workout to see if we mesh well.

     

    Also if you're at 24 Hr Fitness. Hit up ED BAUER, this guy is also a great trainer. We have worked out together, and he is very approachable, and shows a lot of success with his clients.

  5. Alright here's my log anew.

     

    The goal is to get big, and strong, and ripped. Ed is training for his second competition in late July, I'm still prepping for the fall. After taking time off for a month or so( I was still lifting, just lower intensity) Ed asked if I would like to join him, I jumped at the opportunity. Yesterday was the end of my first week with Ed.

     

    Day One (Quads Calves and Abs)

    -Close Stance Squats 1.5 reps equals One (come up part way, go back down, then do full rep, repeat)

    We did 4-5 Sets of 8

     

    -Walking lunges- Seems to be about a 25 steps in One Direction. We did 3 down and back

     

    -Calf Raises with 4 Second hold at dorsal flexion- Don't Remember How many Sets

     

    Abs

    Leg lifts and Crunches

     

    Day Two Arms ( we were separate this day)

    I did

    3x12 bent over single arm curls

    3x10 band resisted reverse grip curls(placing power band grips around handle medial to my grip, and placing length of band underneath both of my feet. Making tension greater on the motion towards origin)

    3x10

    Reverse Preacher Curl

    3x10

    Cable kick backs

    3x10

    Cycle through this 3 times

     

    Leg Curls

    Better Detail for week 2

     

    Today- Cardio and abs- (rest day)

  6. The Cafe is typically associated with being great activists in the community, and as of late there have been a lot of police shooting/beating on people who were mentally ill. Though the action of the cafe, may seem off, it was an act of importance to a community that believes injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere. I appreciate both sides of the story, and hope that the Police, and the Portland Community can develop stronger faith in one another

  7. Where is the main Campus for University of Denver, in regard to heart of the city. I'm wanting to go to nursing school, but have a few classes to finish up, so trying to do some scouting before hand. Whats the unemployment like now? Is it hard for cars to pass emissions? Any vegans/veggies up for temporary(paid) housing if needed?

  14. Thats a good recall on terminology, however in this context it is not referring to color. It is returning to small amounts of cyanide released, so if you already have high levels of cyanide from smoking, or second hand smoke this can be not as healthy to supplement.

     

    That said the best/most efficient form is methylcobalamin(b12). I'd suggest googling the difference between the two.

  15. No worries! Wish i could say it was mine, but I was able to play it for 4 hours at a house show.......

     

    In regards to group workouts, since not all are big box gym(or contractual gym members) would it be easy to do occasional lifts at Loprinzi's since they allow unlimited day passes? I my self used to work out there but am up at ME Fitness on MLK and Alberta, after moving to NE, which too has 24 hour access.
