An oldie but a goodie. I was digging through my archives and rediscovered an interview I did with Empowered Health/Vancouver Sun. Feel free to share with those friends of yours that think you’re crazy for doing CrossFit or think that it’s something they could never do. Enjoy!Details
I love, love, love being a dad. Two of the three most incredibly memorable days of my life include the days my daughters Chardonae and Brie were born (the 3rd is the day I met my wife, Christie). Admittedly, living with three women can prove challenging at times, and as my little girls turn into little women the challenges continue.

Over the last few weeks I’ve found myself reminiscing about my childhood and some of my early impressions of Canadian beef ranchers. Growing up in small-town, rural Ontario in a community just outside of Newtonville, I spent many a weekend playing at the Cartwright Farm. My brother Josh and I would spend hours playing on the farm with the Cartwright kids and every once in a while would find ourselves helping Mr. John Cartwright with a few of his daily ‘chores’.Details

Excuses are just bad habits in disguise. They’re there all the time, just waiting for an opportunity to show themselves.
Over the past few months I’ve battled my fair share of personal excuses as it relates to training and injuries. I’ve battled with patella tendonitis in my right knee and it has caused me much grief. My training has suffered due to this and at times I find that the mental roadblocks I put up are far worse than the injury themselves.Details
As a very busy dad of 2 beautiful girls, finding time to plan fun events is sometimes a challenge, especially when summer rolls around. This summer I’m looking forward to spending a couple of days along with nearly 5,000 other participants at the Whistler Children’s Festival. The festival is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary at the Whistler Olympic plaza in the heart of Whistler Village, taking place over 2 days and is jam-packed with tons of activities to keep the kids entertained (check out the list of 19 workshops to choose from).Details
