Oh hi 🙋🏻♀️ My name is Julia and I’m the shorter (only a mere 6 feet 🦒) and weirder 🐙 half of the #AthleticCouple. Aside from my funny faces 🙃, I’m generally known for my career in medical research, playing on Team Canada 🇨🇦 beach volleyball, and teaching at the University of Toronto, but as Martin 👱🏼♂️ mentioned, we’re so excited to start sharing the messages that provide meaning and purpose to our lives 🙏🏻
As a neuroscientist, I’m quite fond of the brain 🧠🤓. I like to think of humans as robots 🤖 , with our brains being the operating system of the body. Just like a computer needs to be coded, our brains are “wired” in very specific ways that define who we are and how we behave. When it comes to inspiring others to make healthy lifestyle choices 🍎, I always think top down 🧠 and teach others how to rewire their brain for lasting behavioural change 🏃🏻♀️.
Okay that was a lot of blabbing, but essentially I’m passionate about using education to empower others to get moving 🤸🏻♀️, make healthy (and yummy) food choices 🍇 and provide love towards themselves and others! ❤️🧘🏻♀️

Hello! My name is Martin 🙋🏼♂️ and I’m the taller and less cute partner in the #AthleticCouple. I am generally known for competing in the 2012 Olympics for Canada 🇨🇦 in Beach Volleyball🏝🏐 and co-founding an athletic training 🏃🏻♂️ method in Toronto, but I can’t wait to share lesser known outlooks 👀 and philosophies of my life through this channel.
I believe whole heartedly ♥️ that to love others you must first love yourself. Thanks to being a professional partner 😏 (beach volleyball is played in 2s😉) I am deeply passionate about helping people love themselves, believe in themselves and build vitality enhancing lifestyles that not only expand possibility, but provide fulfillment in all areas of life. This doesn’t always come wrapped in a bow 🎁 so I will do my best to share the highs and lows so we can all benefit from real and open dialogue.
I know that may sound totally hippy ✌🏻, however, it is my goal to authentically share my passion for self awareness and human development. You ABSOLUTELY CAN achieve more in your pursuits and partnerships; it simply starts with being transparent with the struggles and victories. I don’t have it all figured out but I hope this platform creates intelligent and positive dialogue that goes deeper than surface level🙏🏻☺️

I was never much of a kombucha person until I tried this Jasmine Sour 🍒 kombucha from @alchemypicklecompany - (Which let's be honest, I got because I'm a sucker for all things Jasmine)... But seriously people, what is your favourite kombucha? Am I missing out on any others?

I'm back after spending a week in Central America and have brought back a renewed love of beans. While there, the fish and chicken was local, fresh, and delicious, but equally tasty were the beans served at almost every meal. Here's my recipe for a mixed bean salad that tastes as good as it looks. .
- 3 large vine tomatoes
- 1/2 onion
- 2 Jalapeno peppers (remove seeds)
- 1/2 c cilantro with stems
- 3 tbsp lime juice (about 1.5 limes)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 (15oz) cans of cooked beans
- 1lb green beans
- 1/4 c olive oil
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
1. Purée tomatoes, onion, Jalapeno, 1tbsp lime juice, and salt.
2. Strain the solids and extract as much liquid as possible. Save the solids for use in another dish (stew, soup...)
3. Place beans in a bowl, add green beans, oil, chia seeds, your pureed liquid, and 2tbsp lime juice.
4. Let sit 1hr
5. Adjust salt and pepper to taste
💪🏻 Cherry powered start to the day 💪🏻 So simple and so delicious--- fuelled with: ✅ organic cherries
✅ organic mangos
✅ organic avocados
✅ plant based protein (Lesperance.usana.com)
✅filter water ▶️▶️▶️▶️ blend and go!!
I feel like cherries don't get enough "street-cred" for how amazing they are! ✅ packed with antioxidants they help joint inflammation ✅ high in pectin'a --- which is a soluble fibre great for controlling cholesterol ✅ full of beta-carotene --- yeah awesome eye-sight ✅ is a rare naturally occurring source of melatonin which helps regulate sleep patterns!!! WOW -- all of that in one little cherry! 🍒🍒🍒
