bringing balance to 2017 (giveaway)

Ready to jump into 2017? I am. 2016 was a crazy year filled with highs and lows, and as I step into 2017 I'm craving balance. Consistency. So this month I'm hitting the reset button and committing to self care. At the top of my to-do list: healthy eating for a whole month and 20 workouts by January 31.

I've come to love exercise because there are so many great spots to do it in Ottawa: Iron North Studio, The Dailey Method Ottawa, and PranaShanti Yoga Centre to name a few. And you know what helps me get motivated? New workout gear! Meet one of my favourite brands: local Ottawa start-up LVD Fitness.

I've got an exclusive 20% promo code and a $100 gift card giveaway, so read on!

LVD Fitness was founded on the belief that a business shouldn't exist only to make profit, but to help you make a difference with every purchase. They firmly believe that the companies of the future are those that empower their customers to contribute to the environment and the global community.

So how do they do this exactly? LVD partners with environmentally conscious print shops and WRAP-certified suppliers to minimize their environmental footprint. And with each purchase, they donate funds WaterAid Canada to provide those in need with a month of clean water. Think of LVD Fitness as the TOMS Shoes of clean water. By supporting locally, you can affect change globally.

LVD recently got in touch and asked me to do a fitness photo shoot with them. ME?! As a gal who has never considered herself athletic and was always picked last in gym class, I was kinda blown away by their email.

I love to lift, spin, and do yoga, but I've got squishy bits and don't eat protein bars. So my first thought was "Me? Really? Are you sure?"

me? a fitness "model"?

But LVD is an awesome crew that makes fitness clothing for everyone in sizes XS to XXXL, and they believe fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. So I said yes. Their photographer John came over to my place, I packed up my gym essentials, and we headed off to my beloved sweat spot: Iron North Studio.
