Another first for me last night was competing in the Masters over 40 division at the #inbfcanada where I placed 2nd 👌👍 Great bunch of guys, lots of respect for each other and we all worked our butts off to share the stage! Thanks INBF for putting on a Masters event and a great show! #chadaction #actionconditioning #teambrandt #teamaction #bodybuilder #inbf #fitat40 #bodybuilding #natural #natty #ripped #muscle #condition #inbfcanada

A pic from @inbfcanada physique show last night (too bad I wasn't smiling). I tried something way out of my element with my first physique show last night. Being almost 41 years old and competing against guys 19-25 years of age, I think I held my own. Only if they had a Masters physique class, then this old guy might stand a chance. Still had fun doing physique, hope I did not embarrass myself or the INBF✌️👍 I tried my best, had fun and have learned from the experience 👍 #chadaction #actionconditioning #teambrandt #teamaction #physique #inbfcanada #inbf #fitat40

Yesterday was pretty interesting... Had someone come to the gym in the morning and asked if we wanted to purchase weekly trays of chocolates to put in our staff room. "No thanks. A fitness center is probably not the best sell." Then later, I open the garbage can to throw out something to be greeted with a Big Mac, a large pop, and large fries containers. Odd choices.

Message from Coach Kat: Interesting morning! 4:40am and the cops have the entrance/exit blocked off to my community with cop cars. So I'm stuck for a bit... I have got ahold of Joel and he's able to be there to open for 5am, if he's not quite there, don't panic he's on his way! And I will get there when I can!

This has been my go to Pre Workout meal this prep👌I like to let it fully digest for 3-4hr before I train (remember this is optimal for me...find what works for you) 👌👍 I like a higher sodium meal to start my day, plus I also like my sodium on the higher side (again through trial and error I have found this works for me). Remember peeps, listen to your body and stop following cookie cutter plans. Put in the work and results will be yours! #chadaction #actionkitchen #actionconditioning #prep #contestprep #idfa #iifym #macros #preworkout #meals #meal #bodybuilder #physique #fitat40 #dedication #condition #consistency #train #muscle #fitness #myfitnesspal #tracking #track

To all those who have made goals and never respected the value of those goals to their full term! Guess what you can start again:-) *now look at the WHY you keep falling off the wagon as there are answers in there! Now from those answers start building an Action Plan to help progress you in a way that works for you:) Beating yourself up is not the answer, finding a path that works for you to succeed is! This takes your utmost time, effort, respect and love towards your goals! Yes this is what goals need to work!!! You need to wake up and start be honest with yourself as the end result comes from the focused intent you put forth towards YOU and your goals! Anyone can workout hard, eat half assed and lie to themselves that they are doing good! #repectthegoal #takeaction TIME TO CHANGE!! #actionstyle #achieve #a90 #actionconditioning #teamaction #teambrandt #muscle #fitness #fitat40 #chadaction @actionconditioning #respect #believe #motivation #motivate

We needed a mini break today from clients and work, plus a prep break for me...so we went and hit some golf balls and played some mini golf👌💥 My wife gets the new rule "Preggers Mulligan", which she used twice😜 The second time was the best Hole in 1....well 2 as the first shot never made it up the ramp (enter Preggers Mulligan) and her second shot bounced out of bounds, hits the bench on the next hole, bounces down the walk way, bounces back onto our hole, hits the wall and rolls in the hole😳 What a shot! We ended up tying for the first time ever on mini golf....that Preggers rule is going to get me! Love you babe @katrinabrandt429 #chadaction #actionconditioning #teambrandt #teamaction #minigolf #golf #shades #flagnorfail #wife #family #familytime

Get my early cardio done on my stepper "Charlie" then had a solid leg training session.....mission accomplished! Saving up my carbos, I first wanted my prepcake and froyo, but then decided late at night to make a low fat prep pizza with the carbos I saved up 👍Macros: for half pizza I ate (3 slices) F4g C71 P30 🌟💥 1% skim milk cheese, Natural selection ham and chicken, veggies, sauce, white dough. Hit the spot and stopped at my 3 slices. 💥 Woke up this morning to a new low on the scale as well!!

#motivationmonday We wanted to recognize and give a shout out to Contest Prep client, Nicoleen. Nicoleen decided to take her workouts and nutrition to the next level and take to the fitness stage. She's prepping for the International Drug Free Athletics (IDFA) Calgary Classic on June 6. This will be Nicoleen's 1st fitness competition. These are her progress pictures so far... 11 weeks apart. Great transformation thus far. We can't wait to see her get more dialled in these next 4 weeks!
We know a bunch of Action Members participated in the Spartan Races in Montana this past weekend... Send us your favorite race day photo. We'd love to share it!

Wishing Good Luck to Coach Linda, who will be up bright and early tomorrow to run the Disney Tinkerbell Half Marathon. She's been training hard and following her plan, so we know she's going to rock it! Have so much fun, Linda! We can't wait to hear how it goes and see some pictures! :)
Other these next couple weeks we will be transitioning to a new client software service, which will be more user friendly for our staff and our customers. It will allow for better class selection, registration, and additional services that we do not currently offer. On top of this we have signed with KaizenNaturals and have placed an order to sell their products at the facility. We will be carrying some of the best, cleanest, and macro friendly natural whey protein powder, natural whey isolate protein powder, glutamine, creatine, and health support supplements on the market. On top of being a great supplement line, pricing is very wallet friendly (a 2lb tub of protein powder will range from $32.99 to $38.99)!! Stay tuned for these exciting upgrades to our services and facility!
Thursday, May 07, 2015
Please note. Due to a family emergency the facility will be closed 2-5pm tomorrow (Friday, May 8) We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this time.
