EP. 65 - "D" IS THE VITAMIN YOU NEEDDD (LIVE FROM COSTA RICA & TORONTO)

SO, NAT'S IN COSTA RICA SOAKING UP THE SUN, BUT THAT DOESN'T STOP US FROM PODCASTING - NO WAY


This episode is brought to you by the letter "D" as in Vitamin D3, one of the most important vitamins your body needs to stay healthy and be generally awesome. 

Nat is getting plenty of D from the Sun, which is how our bodies used to get it naturally when we were hunting, gathering, roaming & playing. But nowadays, most of the light we get is from our phone screens, laptops & Kindles. What do we do to remedy this?

In this episode we'll cover:
  • Why Vitamin D is so important and what it helps our bodies do
  • What are the natural & cheap food sources we can get it from
  • How we can supplement Vitamin D in a safe and cost effective way

EP.1 - RAISING THE BAR - BETTING ON YOURSELF, AN INTERVIEW WITH JACKIE BEALE

A SHINY NEW PODCAST

For our first episode we sit down with our good friend Jackie Beale.

At the age of 27, the woman epitomizes what it means to be a CREATOR. She is a photographer, director, designer, producer. She’s been to photography school and architecture school and has a current client list that reads something like- Nike, Ford, Canada Goose, Canon, Frank+Oak- and that’s just in the past year.

As well as being a Creator, Jackie is a fighter, literally. As a former Muay Thai fighter the need for a physical outlet has proved crucial in her creative process as well as her mental well-being. In a conversation that ranges from Concussions to Kim Kardashian nudie pics- we dig deep with Jackie to find out whats made this photographer ‘click’..see what we did there :)

"16.5 IS A WRAP"

Community is everything at the #academyoflions.
Here we give a shout out to some great posts.
mishka.alarcon One word to describe 16.5- dirty! A few words to describe my #crossfitopen2016 experience- nerve racking, exciting, hard, intense and amazingly gratifying. Thank you to the @academyoflions community for being #inthis2gether.
academyoflions 16.5 is a wrap. Congrats to all the athletes & thanks to the volunteers. CrossFit ya'll. Next stop Regionals. #inthis2gether #cfopen #crossfit #academyoflions #thesweatlifeTO #thesweatlife
anya_exposd The last five weeks have been a bit of a physical and mental struggle. The majority of the workouts left me feeling super discouraged and frustrated. I didn't hit any PRs, I actually came up short on most of my goals. I often questioned why I was putting myself through the torture. This picture best describes it. So grateful for all the love, support and inspiration oozing out of our community...
muskokahalfpint The #crossfitopen workout 14.5 was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, and it has haunted me ever since that day in 2014. When 16.5 was announced as a repeat of that workout, I will admit, there was instant anxiety and a few tears. 
Today was an emotional day for me. Today I faced a fear. Today I can say I beat my 2014 time by 15:03, and more importantly, I am no longer haunted...
