Live In Motion Charity Road Hockey Team - Players Needed

Here's the lowdown...

I'm 38 - I don't get to play road hockey anymore, and I'm not pleased about it. We hit a certain age where we just don't get to play. It's not like we can walk up to a group of neighborhood kids and say "Hey Dudes, can I play too?" Besides most of them are sitting in front of their TV's playing Call of Duty anyway.

I've talked to many other guys about the good old road hockey days. We all complain that we miss it and swap stories of our glory days in our childhood neighborhoods. I'm pretty sure I am still the highest scoring player in the history of Concord Place in Burlington, Ontario road hockey from July 1981, but I don't like to brag.

Well, It's time to play again. Live in Motion is entering a team (maybe 2) in the Big Brothers Big Sisters BIG 3-on-3 Road Hockey Tournament. Just to clarify - we will be in the 18 plus division.

I'm in the process of becoming a Big Brother and would like to help out the organization. We all understand the value of helping a charity - no need to explain here.

Here's the details;

Date: Sat, May 12
Location: Bowmanville
Time: Games start at 9:15am
Division: 18 plus
Cost: $25 per player ($150 per team - max of 6 players per team)

Please email me at if you are interested in joining this elite squad of snipers.

Note - it is encouraged that players wear gloves, helmets, jocks etc. We'll also have to find some goalie gear - and a goalie for that matter.

So far Team#1 is...

1) Me (Jason)
2) Kris Meawasige "The Nunavut Warrior"
3) Jason "Just Do It" Nike
4) Adam "Habs Fan" Holt
5) Matt "Married Madman" Bryan

Next Cooking Class - Sat, May 5th. Quick and Tasty Meals for Fat Loss

One of the biggest factors in losing fat and staying lean is the consistency of proper meal intake. When we speak with clients this is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) challenges.

If you evaluate your week in terms of healthy meal consistency, how many meals did you miss? How many were not conducive to fat loss? How many made you feel lethargic, tired, bloated?

Our advice to clients is to learn to prepare two healthy meal recipes. If you've got 20-30 mins to whip up something healthy and tasty, nobody wants to consult a recipe book and turn the whole thing into a production. Once you can do two in your sleep, learn another two and so on.

Our Quick and Tasty Meals for Fat Loss class is designed to teach SIMPLE meals that can become staples for health, energy and fat loss.


Saturday, May 5th from 10am to 1pm

Location; Clarington's Wellness Path in Bowmanville

Cost is $65 which includes cost of food and recipe book. Bring a child under 18 for $25.

Please email me at to register. This class is a small group format with room for 8 participants.

Pics from 'Healthy Snacks for Fat Loss' on March 31

Many thanks to all those that attended our 'Healthy Snacks for Fat Loss' class on Sat, March 31 - Mark, Janine, Phil, Jason, Lynn, Patsy, Victoria, Jeremy and Katie. We appreciate you taking the time out of your weekend to make the effort to attend. We sincerely hope you benefited from the class and walked away with some valuable info.

The Nutritional Cooking component of our business has been steadily growing over the last couple of years and we are excited about the progress. We attribute this growth to a few factors;

*people are realizing that cooking is a skill that needs to be learned
*participants are seeking healthy alternatives to traditional junk food
*modern lifestyle is busy and we are all seeking ways to be in and out of the kitchen quickly
*we are more aware of manipulative marketing techniques by food companies and want more options
*those seeking greater health, energy and focus realize that fitness in only 1 component and healthy eating and cooking must be learned for max results

Thanks to Nancy at The Wellness Path for a great facility...
