What pushed you to start rock climbing at such a young age?

My father received a rock climbing class from my mother on his birthday since he loves heights and his physically strong. Once he had taken his class, he invited me to climb. To his surprise, I had a hidden talent in me. Thus, while developing a good complicity with my father, I developed a lot of fun to come climbing with him every Sunday morning!

How did you discover the world of the competition?

One Sunday morning in November 2011, I was climbing with my father (obviously). That’s when the technical director of the climbing center “Amusement Action Directe”, Rock Charron, suggested that I try to be part of the competition team. From the first training, I fell in love even more deeply with the sport, each team member and the atmosphere as a group.

Before climbing competition, you were in a water polo competition team. Why have you stopped everything to direct you to the escalating?

In water polo, I had gone to the stage where my team in Laval was not complete. I had to go to Longueuil to play with the team of Saint-Lambert. Furthermore, the atmosphere at tournaments was very tense and competitiveness was to the point where it was not really fun to play anymore. For 1 year, I did the two sports simultaneously. I then discovered that the climbing competition was simply more healthy and friendly. I could also train close to home and be independent of the rest of my team. The following year, I stopped the water polo to concentrate 100% on climbing.

How do you manage to balance your social life with your training and studies?

From an early age, my mother taught me the meaning of a proper organization. I have a detailed agenda, a big calendar in my room for events and another calendar for schoolwork. Each of my tools are very detailed, which allows me to better manage my time and see where my open space for activities like seeing my friends or my family. Also, I am enrolled in sport-study program in college, which helps me to balance school and training. My teachers then are more aware of my responsibilities as well, and help me find solutions with respect to assignments or examinations when I’m overloaded or when I have to leave in competition. I also have friends and family who understand what I live and do their utmost to support me in my eventful life!

Start with small mountains. If you aim for too big a mountain, the fall will be from higher. It is with small goals that we climb the highest without taking the risk of falling!

I have long remained septic regarding programs based on proteins and supplements. I always thought that advertisements were false promises and nice words covering up for bad product…. Several months ago, I was approached by Robert Gauthier, the owner of Nutraxis: a healthy living supplements company. Despite his clear conviction and positive attitude, I remained, yes I admit it, on my guards against these products. But four months later I discovered for myself that it wasn’t simply his attitude that was good, but his products that, contrary to what I thought before, are magically effective.

My name is Maggy Dubé-Laroche and I am a sports climbing athlete in the international competing levels. I have been practicing sports climbing for over 10 years, and competing for 5 years. With regular competitions and multiple trainings per week, many things happen in my day-to-day life. Add a busy schedule, as well as the possibilities of injuries being just around the corner and the moral takes a hit. It’s now been several months since I started using NexPro Cell Tech, and much has changed.

Three months ago, I dislocated my shoulder during a Canadian Championship. That’s horrible news for an athlete like me. This injury generates many consequences: I have to quit training and put my career on pause, which lead to a drop in my self-esteem and more… To top everything, when you finally get back to training, the return is much harder than you’d expect. Normally, in climbing, a 2-month breaks demand at least a full month of training – if not more – to regain your capacities. This was haunting me constantly. Then I remembered the wise words of Mr. Gauthier: “You’ll see, NexPro really help to regenerate your body, even in case of injury!” So I religiously took the products, making sure to follow all the recommended doses to see whether or not the wise man would turn out to be just another advertiser. That’s when the day came, I hoped back on my training routine. Well, guess what? In 1 week and a half, I was back on track with a smile plastered on my face when I realized I was even stronger than I was before.

After this upsetting experience, I’m back to my routine: work, school and the 5 workouts a week. Quite the busy schedule. Well stay assured, I easily manage to take all the products every day without hassle or loss of time. You drink water every day? Well, it’s as simple as adding a small tablespoon in your water so you feel better about yourself and avoid unnecessary headaches – I used to suffer from migraines, constantly! Your drink at lunch and dinner can easily be replaced by a shake that remove all harmful toxins from your body. I also use Triozyme®, and chewing two tablets after your meals, well it’s done in a flash! With a busy schedule, it has to be quick and easy! Simple, right?

All of this is to say that NexPro and all of Nutraxis’ products are of extremely good quality, simple to use and effective. I now can trust supplements and proteins thanks to Nutraxis. If you’re still skeptical, try it for yourself, it’s worth it!
