My personal favourites for all things health, beauty and fitness

To have good skin health is extremely important for total health. Your skin is your body's largest organ, and virtually the only organ that you can watch. This post is to share with you whats works for my skin and what products I cannot live without to keep myself healthy inside and out!

Being a personal trainer I really do not like to wear much make up, but it is always good to have something to freshen up your skin and I discovered this BB Cream from Noire that always gives me a very natural no make up look. What you put on your skin is just as important as what goes into your mouth. I get people asking me daily what I do to stay healthy not only on the inside but on the outside too, so I thought using my blog would be the best channel to communicate all my little tips, trick and secrets!

FACE
I use a light tinted moisturiser called Noire BB Cream. 
This little baby is a hydrating tinted moisturiser with skin protection (perfect for those who work outdoors, like myself) and a sheer coverage that also helps prevent premature ageing. I love to look natural and have a 'no make up' look and this is just perfect for that! This is available in 3 shades. Light, Medium, Dark


MAKE UP
Noire is my go to place for when I need to get my make up done, the beautiful ladies here do my make up for all my events. You can simply book in to see them in store, or if your overseas they now have an online store, Ive organised discounts for all my followers, all you need to do is put in #NOIREDOM to receive your discount. www.noirestudio.com 
At night, the studio is available for tailored makeup classes for hen’s parties, birthdays or just a group of friends wanting to do something unique and life changing. They can even arrange limousine pickup and return, canap├ęs and champagne! Pretty special!
What I am wearing in this look is listed below, all products from http://shop.noirestudio.bigcartel.com (For discounts use the code #NOIREDOM)
Eyes
Rice
Fur vest
Minx
Sin city

Face
Hi def foundation

HAIR
My amazing Salon TWO-SIX-SIX always pamper my hair with the absolute best treatments! I get my hair done with these guys for all my events and some of the modelling shoots I do (photo below, hair done by Shea at Salon two). 
These guys are super stars at creating volume, and their extensions will allow you to have healthy long locks. They are also about to launch their new range of extensions from Russia that are double drawns which I will be getting very soon, so stay tuned on instagram @dominiqueletoullec for my posts on how they are :)
As a model my hair is constantly under the pressure of blow dries, different products and a lot of stress so its just as important to ensure my hair is being taken care of as well. Having salon treatments does absolute wonders for my hair and I highly recommend this for beautiful silky healthy hair. One of my favourite products to use daily is Moroccan Oil. 
Go to the below link for everything my salon offers 



SKIN CARE
I have been using the skincare range from the ladies at NOIRE all products are all botanical based products, allergy tested, paraben and fragrance free and formulated. Will leave you skin feeling fresh and not stripped!
I use the following:
Wash - chamomile facial wash
Tone - botanical firming toner
Firm - firming face & eye serum
Hydrate- hydrating mango face cream
Exfoliate - mint exfoliating facial polish
Mask- mineral mud mask

You can buy any of these products via this link http://shop.noirestudio.bigcartel.com and you can receive a discount by using the code #NOIREDOM and in store just mention my name for discounts. 

INSIDE MY BODY
I use my healthy eating plan that I have created for all my ultimate fat loss clients. This keeps me full, with plenty of energy every day! I also train 3-4 times a week combining functional training (strength and cardio). I also ensure I'm drinking 2 litres of water everyday. Having a glass of water just before you eat can also help with portion control as your tummy will feel full already. 
I also love green tea!
Green tea assists in keeping your metabolism working at a healthy rate, provides fiber, and by having lower cholesterol, it increases muscle strength. With green tea assisting in the metabolic rate, you have more energy and hoard less fat which contributes to your overall health and fitness... and it fights aging - who doesn't like that? 
TRAINING AND NUTRITION 
The program I use weekly is my own ultimate fat loss program which is designed at woman and men and helping them achieve fat loss in the most accurate way.
Helping people means the world to me and because I know how to achieve ultimate fat loss better than anything its easy for me to put together programs that I KNOW work because everything is tested on myself ;)
What are in my programs?
6 week training program of strength and cardio exercises
My tips and secrets to get to where you want to be
And my full nutrition pack

Nutrition
- 10 day eating program, comprehensive layout of food to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks each day (each day is different - loads of options)
After the 10 days, you then repeat from the start and continue for 3 weeks and then you continue onto your continued eating program
- Tips on how to be healthier on a daily basis

Online nutrition help for our followers


This blog post is specifically to answer all the emails we both get asking us what the best foods are to eat to loose weight and slim down the healthy way. 
We are both passionate about this subject and truly believe you are what you eat and what you are eating is ultimately going to affect the results you get from your training.


There is one rule in which I live by and it has served me so well and always will, Clean Eating!
When it comes to groceries shopping I walk into the super market and literally do a lap around the outside... WHY you may be asking?!?!
Thats where all the Veg, Fruit, Meat, Nut and Berries can be found. The GOOD stuff!
Down most of the isles is the processed products, the stuff that man has tampered with and therefore has a little things in them that contain the exact thing we don't want or need in our bodies. Its the stuff that can keep stubborn fat inside its cells, sugar levels high, insulin spikes in our blood and increase risk of diseases and sickness.
Even the "No Fat" "No Sugar" products even still find a way to chuck in things into there products and although it sounds like its amazing "low fat bars" - yeah no fat, but plenty of glucose, fructose and unnatural sweeteners that are even more detrimental to us all! 

That is why all our Nutrition within our programs is all based around food that is CLEAN! 
If we eat food thats fresh and clean it can stimulate the body to produce hormones which will tap into stubborn fat and   make us feel healthier within our bodies and that turns into Healthy with in our minds!


In our 6 week nutrition pack we have tips, tricks, recipe links and plenty of meal ideas
The meal plan is designed to match your fitness goals and is based on our knowledge on nutrition and what works best for certain body types. Depending on what your goals are, this plan will help you:
  • Lose weight
  • Tone muscle
  • Reduce body fat
  • Build lean muscle
  • Feel more energetic
  • Be more organized and prepared
  • Save money
  • Achieve your goal body!
To get started on the RIGHT nutrition program head over to either of our websites (both nutrition programs are the same so either website link is cool to go to) simply click on either of these links, download and you can get started today :)

Quality supplements, what we recommend!

How many supplements have I tried during my professional Career?
I can safely say I've sampled nearly every brand and every type of new "amazing" "miracle" supplement brought out on the market. The reason I do this is because I want to be able to give my clients the right info.

I know that not every supplement works with every person the same, very similar to the fact not every food has the same effect on every person. Everyone is different! This includes how individual bodies react to supplements as well.

Recently my views on supplements has been changed for the better and I felt it was my duty to bring this company to everyone's attention. Not only has it helped me achieve the results I have been working hard for but it has helped my clients achieve their results faster than normal!

Punish Nutrition has a huge range of products, and what I personally love the most is that they stand by the fact that what is on their label is in their products. 
Punish nutrition specialise in high quality proteins and amino acids and quality proteins and amino acids and manufactures products using only pure and natural ingredients.
I finally feel confident in a product and have full trust in what they say is what they deliver.



Supplementation is basically a quick + fast alternative if you can't get all the goodness you'd usually get from optimal nutrition from clean health organic food.

Only thing is that we do not eat enough of the right foods and we don't eat them at the correct times due to busy lives, work, kids etc So that is why supplements are important for achieving your results.

So are supplements essential for peak performance in every day life? Yes, I Believe so!

How easy is it for the hard working Aussie mum to pre plan her meals and cook her own nutrition packed meals for the correct daily supply of protein, multi vitamins, correct carbohydrates?
Its pretty much impossible.
Same goes for the 7am - 5pm labourer, you think he has time to pre pack every meal and keep it on his job site? No way!


Ive recently been shipped a broad amount of products from 'Punish Nutrition' that covers all the bases i need as an active male and for every female out there that wants to keep away from the negative add ins, artificial and nasty unnatural crap but want to be active and healthy when they can't find the time for a nutrition filled meal!




Hope this blog post has helped you guys. Dom and I get a tone of emails on what supplements we use and recommend so we thought it only fitting for my first blog post to be on supplements :) 

Ok so now the great news!
I have organised big discounts for all my followers for these particular supplements. 
To receive a discount you'll have to get in contact with me directly via my website contact page - link here www.danielconn.com/contact/ the reason I want you to contact me directly is so I can get to know you and give you my advice on what supplements will best suit YOU!

Timing is everything when taking supplements so if you contact me through http://danielconn.com/contact/ i'll also show you how to get the best effects and the fastest results!

Some of the packs I will discuss with you are below:

This has been most popular with my female clientele

L-Carnitine
Skinny Bitch Body Shaping protein

And for the guys out there this is my winner

A little bit about Daniel

I've been an elite athlete for 8 years having played within the NRL during this period of time I trained and played with and against some of the greatest players and athletes in the game from 2002-2012. Including Grand final (2010) and semi final football throughout.

I am qualified as a master trainer with certifications III and IV. I was forced into early retirement due to a sever neck injury, instead of being defeated by this set back I used this as an opportunity to better myself and excel in what I love to do, which is to be a leading force within the health and fitness industry.

Participation in as many types of physical fitness was a goal i set for myself to further my understanding of what works best within this industry. Crossfit courses, Power Lifting, Olympic lifting courses, Muai Thai Training, Gymnastic Strength Training to name a few.

Competing in the NRL, one of the most brutal sports, I learnt the importance of Injury prevention, injury rehab, time management and creating a effective routine for Training and Nutrition.

I pride myself on clean eating and have furthered my eduction on how important the correct foods are not just for Fitness and Health but for optimal performance in everyday life.


Studying and furthering my eduction is something I find crucial in a industry thats forever inventing "Fads" "5 minute Abs" and "Super fat loss in 60 seconds" type of theories. I pride myself on delivering and discovering proven factual evidnece for my amazing audience and can't wait to collaborated with Dom to bring everything I know to everyone through this amazing health and fitness blog.

I am now dedicated to helping clients reach there desired results while at the same time educating them on every aspect of Healthy Living. Ive now dedicated my journey to teaching and sharing my passion for educating everyone on Healthy Living and Fitness.

Healthy snack, meal and drink ideas

Healthy snack, meal and drink ideas

You are what you eat!

As many of you already know I have a strong passion for health and fitness.
One of the most important things in life I believe is looking after and treasuring your body.

Food is magic, it helps us look after ourselves from the inside out.
I'm always creating new things in the kitchen and surprising my clients, friends and family with how AMAZING healthy food can taste. 

Eating healthy is not as hard as some may think.
Here are a few of my tips to get you started

  • Make sure you buy good produce (local markets are a great idea and will save you a lot of money) also buying in bulk at the start of the week is a good option.
  • Eating raw as often as possible reduces the loss of vitamins and minerals that occur when food has been heated or cooked. Nutrients that are the essential fuel for our bodies.
  • Look up healthy recipes to get inspiration. This can be done through google searches, recipie books, or even scrolling through others instagram pages and finding GREAT inspirational images that a lot of people will share their recipies. Another idea is to search hashtags #cleaneating #healthyeating and so on and hundreds of pictures will come up to inspire you Check out my insta for frequent healthy ideas username 'dominiqueletoullec'
  • Experiment with different recipes you'll find and create your own healthy twist on an existing recipe.

Here are a few of my recent creations I'd like to share with you. 
Live a healthy and happy life!


Amazing healthy sweet treat
Recipe

1. Get all your blueberries and place them on your skewers
2. Roll your blueberry sticks in yogurt (make sure to get a good coating)
3. Coat each stick with sprinkling of cinnamon (and for those who want some extra sweetness) brown sugar
4. Place in the freezer
5. ENJOY!


Fruit pops
Recipe

GREAT treat for the kids, and a guilt free treat for dessert
1. Ingredients - With these ones I used mango, strawberries and coconut water 
(Explore and use as many different fruits as you can desire)
If its hard for you to find natural coconuts I recommend H2Coco (for more info on this coconut water check out my previous blog post and click on this link. http://dominiqueletoullec.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/coconut-water.html
2. Sometimes I blend the fruit and then put it into the pop mould, othertimes I will chop up fruit and add to a cup of coconut water and then pour into the moulds
3. Freeze
4. ENJOY!


Fridge creation!

I literally used what was left in the fridge and created this HEALTHY, SUPERFOOD treat
1. Cut up slices of cucumber, mix in a bowl avocado and cottage cheese, squeeze of lemon and a little salt and pepper, place drops onto of the cucumber with a small piece of sun dried tomato
2. Mix together lentils (make sure to make your own, very easy just boil them up on the stove), red cabbage, avocado, basil, tomatoes, baby spinach and chilli tuna
What superfood creation can you put together from the ingredients in your fridge?




GREEN WATER

1. Alkaline water
2. Chlorophyll (Tablespoon)
3. Fresh chopped up lemons (Squeeze them in first then leave in)
4. Fresh chopped up cucumber

Its important to drink at least 2 Litres of water a day, introducing green water is not only great for you but it's another way to up your water intake daily



These are just a few simple ideas to give you some inspiration. Dont be scared to try different things. 
Healthy food IS delicious, just be creative and you will create flavour. 
HAPPY EATING & DRINKING
