Let me introduce myself, I’m a 27 year old Canadian by the name of Meghan. I re-certified my nutrition certificate with Precision Nutrition in November 2017 and am looking forward to continuing to help others learn to balance life and well being. I believe in acknowledging mental and physical health by teaching my clients how to make the right choices for their body while still enjoying small treats, enjoying the holidays and releasing any emotional attachments with food. I often utilize #balanceiseverything to demonstrate my strong belief in the phrase.
Every now and then it’s important to KICK it into HIGH gear! And that’s what Meghan Hauk, a native of Edmonton Alberta is doing with her new powerlifting regime. Originally a soccer player for fifteen years, Meghan is no stranger to the demands of both a high energy work life and the demands of healthy lifestyle.
That’s why no shock was gleaned by her family and friends when she decided to go from high endurance cardio to the explosive requirements of powerlifting. Training a minimum of 4 times a week she is excited to lift at the Alberta Provincial Powerlifting Competition and has posted a PR (personal record) of 235lbs a 100lbs increase from where she started! It’s no wonder that the squat is her favourite exercise to perform in the gym!
While working out Meghan loves to listen to heavy rock and states her main motivation is “To be strong as hell!” Meghan’s dedication to training and her upbeat positive attitude make her a great inspiration to anyone!
