Hi Hayley, I am a 29 year old female who needs to tone her bottom half.... I am 5'3" and weigh about 117 lbs. my backstory.... Growing up, I was always very petite. When I say petite, I mean so skinny I looked slightly ill. I just could not gain weight. My legs looked like pins sticking out of a skirt or dress and I had no boobs (and still don't). Full Article

Summer has finally arrived and, like the rest of the country, it is time to get outside, into the sunshine. To me summer is about being outdoors and enjoying all the activities my city has to offer, from mountain biking, to mountain hiking, to trail running, to swimming, to SUP yoga, to beach volleyball, to cruiser bike rides on the seawall to kayaking and to boating, you rarely find me sitting idle, poolside. Full Article

Hi Hayley! I am starting an 8-week clean eating diet. No fruit; lean protein and green veggies only. The thing is, I am a fairly small person (5'0, 115lbs) and I'm afraid eating 1200 calories a day isn't few enough to whip me into shape. On days when I don't work out, can I go less than 1200cals without going into "starvation mode"? I'd love to hear your opinion on this. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm a second time mom (my youngest is 4 months) and I'm struggling with what is realistic right now combined with whether I'm approaching my postpartum weight loss the right way. I'm normally about a size 6-8, so not tiny but I've never had a weight problem and I eat mostly clean and I'm always active. Full Article

Hayley, I need your help STAT. I just had my first fitness shame moment. Up until now, while not in the best of shape, my body has always risen to any challenge I gave it. Today I started an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime hike with a group of fellow travelers only to have the guide turn halfway up, call back to me and say I needed to turn around, go home, and have a drink at the pub because I wasn't going to make it and I was holding the group back. Full Article

Obstacle races are becoming the big thing right now and I have to say that I am a fan of that! They are events that anyone can participate in and you can make them as serious as you like. I love the buzz around the city when Tough Mudder rolls into Whistler and I get so excited to see so many people challenging themselves and having a good time. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I recently ran the BMO half-marathon here in Vancouver and now I'm gearing up for the Lululemon Seawheeze in August. What's the best way to train between now and then? Do I scale back my long runs and ramp them up slowly like I would if I were starting from scratch, or keep running long distances and work on upping my pace? For reference, I've run two half-marathons ever: one last year with a time of 1:51 and the one this past weekend with a time of 1:42. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I have a quick question for a sunscreen recommendation. I am a long-time runner who recently moved to Florida from Montreal. In Canada, I had typically exercised in the early evening, but lately this hasn't been possible and I've been running around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, sometimes earlier. Full Article

I love wine and I love to run so when one of my close friends suggested we do the Half Corked Marathon that runs through Oliver Osooyos Wine Country I said yes without hesitation. I knew I had made the right decision when I saw the route for the race as it read more like a wine menu at my favourite restaurant than a race map. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm a cliché.  I'm getting married in about a year and I want to get in tip top shape. I'm already in decent/good shape.  I have a healthy BMI and I workout about 4 times a week.  I do yoga once a week and about 30 minutes of cardio with some pushups and abs the other 3 days. Full Article

Hayley, I am stuck! 3 years ago I lost about 60 pounds with diet and exercise, which is great and I feel so much better. However, I still need to lose another 50 to reach my goal. I am 5'1" and around 185, with a heavy frame and family history leaning strongly towards diabetes. My problem is that I am out of options for what to further change or do to get to that goal. Full Article

Hayley, I am 33 and I gained a lot of weight in the last years. I decided to address this issue at the beginning of the year. I cut alcohol and started to eat well. I eat between 1300 to 1500 calories of healthy food per day. And I train at the gym: 5-6 times a week, generally a circuit with 45 minutes of cardio (elliptical, running or biking) and lifting weight. Full Article
