Tell us about yourself.

I grew up in a sports oriented family and competed in basketball, volleyball, baseball, track and field and cross country running. I moved to Whistler to compete in snowboarding after graduating from University, and then in my thirties I dove into all things yoga, became a teacher, competed for many years in international competition, and I still practice and teach it.When I turned 40 I started focusing on bodybuilding and won several shows before settling on the WBFF and I still compete in their Pro shows at 47. Last year I added competitive powerlifting, and placed second at the Canadian championships. I’d like to return to the platform when I turn 49 and compete with an even better total.

Tell us your fitness story.

I started competing in fitness in my forties because I was fascinated by the practical science of using weights and nutrition to control the aging process.

What are your favourite exercises and areas to work out?

I love training all body parts, but I’m especially proud of my legs, and train them 2-3 times a week. I always work on my squat and deadlift technique, but I also do a ton of unilateral work to bring up weakness and really focus on mind-muscle connection.

Why do you choose Magnum?

Magnum products are very powerful and work almost immediately. I stick to the basics in my off season and then when I go into a cut I utilize many of Magnum’s thermogenic boosters to make the process easier and faster.

Favourite Magnum supplements and why?

My favourite Magnum Supplements are:

ROCKET SCIENCE: I always have a lot on my plate and it really helps me focus and stay in an upbeat mood.

QUATTRO: Hands-down Quattro. I honestly wouldn’t want to train without it. It makes dieting not seem like dieting when you can whip up a batch of Quattro cupcakes, Sweet Icing or Frozen Yogurt.

What are your goals for the future?

I’m working on a series of contest prep-friendly recipes, and building a YouTube channel focused on nutrition, bodybuilding and yoga for women.

What advice can you give to anyone that wants to take control of their health?

Persevere. Change can be slow sometimes, and you will always have challenges and set backs in life, so you’ve got to be prepared to do what needs to be done regardless of your emotional state. Discipline and perseverance are two traits that you need to develop if you want to be in this game for the long run.

MICHELLE MACDONALD | 46 YEARS OLD MUSCLE LADY! FULL WORKOUT POSING

Model- Michelle MacDonald – Canadian Yoga Champion,Physique Coach, Powerlifter 46 years
Wonderful lady, great body, awesome spirit, congratulations on her consistency and beautiful happy life she have

ENTREPRENEUR’S DREAM – MOVING YOUR BUSINESS TO PARADISE WITH J.J AND MICHELLE

I recently had a killer workout and interview with two amazing athletes, coaches, entrepreneurs – Jean-Jacques Barrett and Michelle MacDonald.I love how these two are so committed to living a healthy, Magnum-style lifestyle.

Huge congratulations to these ten women who took my 6-month challenge and knocked it out of the ball park!
I am sorry I am unable to take on new clients at this point but I did want to share a few things about how you can have a successful transformation this year!
.
1) consistency is king! You need to find a diet and a program that you are able to actually follow, and then stick with it for a very long period of time to see lasting changes. The habits you amass in this process should be the same habits you continue with for the rest of your life
2) keep setting mini goals for yourself (weekly and monthly) that keep you excited about progress and keep you focused on executing your strategy day-in and day-our
3) keep track of your progress! I get my clients to make weekly progress collages based on their starting point, and we take girth measurements, calliper measurements and weight measurements throughout the program
4) work constantly on your mindset. Instead of focusing solely on what you want to improve, focus also on your victories! You can’t beat yourself over the finish line. I ask my clients to thoroughly read through The Big Leap and to plug into podcasts that help them focus and think successfully. 
5) master your macros! I don’t offer meal plans, I teach my clients to master macros and build their own meal plans based on the macros per meal that I give them. This becomes the backbone of their personal nutrition. When you finish a program, your instinct for creating healthy, tasty, balanced meals should be night-and-day from where you started.
6) work on your strength, and work on your form in the gym! There is always room for improvement!! Don’t ever think that you can’t become great at something. Also don’t limit yourself with negative self talk. Anyone can learn to squat or do a pull up properly. .
.
To my new top 10 women about to start in July, let’s kick some major ass!!! Be #unstoppable .
