It’s time to get this day started! Fresh coffee always starts my day.

Gym time!
It’s been six weeks since I had PRP on my knee. Lets kick today off with some electrocution squats!

1 on 1 training sessions gives me the chance to work on the smallest details in the gym right now. Core stability and leg strength is key!

1:30PM

It’s time for a post workout swim at the office! What a beauty day out here in Quebec City, homeland of poutine.
