Let’s see, maybe I can start backwards because I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast half the time lol!
First off, I am now a sponsored athlete with Fitmark Bags! (www.fitmarkbags.com). Fitmark carries an exclusive line of creatively designed, high quality bags for fitness enthusiasts. I am honoured to represent a company that fills the void between fashionable, high performance athletes and their bags! Their selection is stunning, and there is something for everyone’s needs. I bet you will have a hard time picking just 1! Check out their great selection on their website, as well as my athlete profile https://fitmarkbags.com/fitmark-athletes/health-and-fitness/nichelle-laus
Battle Arts Academy (www.battleartsacademy.com) is so close to opening I can almost smell it! This state of the art facility is definitely one of a kind. It is 15,000 sq ft in size, and will have everything you need for MMA, Wrestling, Strength and Conditioning, Kickboxing, Kettlebell, and much more to come! I will be teaching the women’s kickboxing classes. I will keep you posted on the schedule times. You don’t want to miss out!!
Since making my decision to compete again post-baby, I was lucky enough to get a Crystal Suit (www.thecrystalsuit.com) sponsorship! You will never be disappointed with Colleen McConnell’s custom-designed suits for all occasions. Her workmanship is impeccable, and her genuine, caring, and passionate personality shines through her suits! I will not disappoint and wear my suit (which we are in the process of designing!) with such pride as I grace the stage on October 12, 2013 in Kitchener, Ont at the Ontario Physique’s (www.bao.on.ca) KW Oktoberfest Natural Classic show, just 8 months post-baby #4!!
My training has been intense. I have stepped it up a notch and have been focusing a lot on my lower body as this always seems to be my weakest point. I’ve been doing a lot of heavy weights, paired with some plyometric workouts, and the lovely, dreaded, amazing stair climber machine! I have a love-hate relationship with that thing but it works sooo well!
Pat Ness helped me create the design my new and improved website (yes this one!) which was launched a couple of weeks ago. He is the webmaster and Blog designer for hundreds of websites. You can check out some of his work at www.smbmaster.com
My online competition prep and transformation coaching is amazing! I love my team which is now over 50 girls. They are all so very motivated to not only reach their health and fitness goals, but go beyond them!! It is so rewarding to not only watch their physical transformations, but to watch them flourish into more confidant, strong, and health-conscious individuals, who know have an understanding of healthier choices, portion control, and wiser decisions.

I have a photo and video shoot coming up this Sunday with Dave Laus (www.davelaus.com) and Pouyan Fard (www.pouyanfard.com). I will be posting some behind the scene pics on my Instagram so make sure you follow me if you aren’t already! @nichellelaus
Now I think I have caught up! Phewf!! More frequent Blogs to come, I promise 🙂
