I’m on vacation!

Happy New Year to All! Thanks for checking out the TrainRite website 🙂

Just to give everybody a heads up; whether you’re a regular here, or you’ve found the my site through a listing on Amazon, eBay, or Etsy…. I’m OUT!

It’s -24C here in Toronto, and that’s just about my threshold.

I’m on vacation until January 16th, 2015,  so I’ve temporarily closed all listings for TrainRite Fitness Journals. If you’re looking to place an order, no worries I will reactivate all listings on the 16th, and will return to normal shipping times. (Did I mention I typically ship SAME DAY?!). So you can wait until then, or you can email me directly at: I will check these periodically, and alert you upon my return!

Thank you all for an exciting and successful 2014!

Happy 4 of July, you ‘Mericans!

Finishing the week strong, after a very slow start…

Has anybody else come down with this dirty summer cold that’s been floating around the city?? I’ve missed so many training sessions this week. Today is my first day back, and I’m trying to condense the muscle groups that were missed in the past 4 days or so into today and tomorrow’s routine. It felt good to rest a few days, the cold really knocked me on my ass.

It actually feels nice to switch it up a bit from my typical training style of 2 muscle groups per day, superset with one another (mostly to save me time in the morning in an attempt to get to work on time! 😉 ).
