Ever wonder how champion athletes go about their training routines? Looking in top shape on the daily, and always with a protein shake by their side. Quebec's very own world champion diver, Alexandre Despatie has finally shared some of his favorite and best fitness hacks, applicable to his training in Montreal, and they're actually quite manageable!
Favorite Fitness Facility
My new favorite fitness & nutrition facility in Montreal is FitClub24. They are a new concept located right in the heart of downtown Montreal. My co-worker Wilder Weir and I are currently doing a Challenge with them called The Ultimate Transformation: Weir vs. Despatie. They have integrated training & proper nutrition to help their clients (including myself) get in the best shape of their lives. My Fit Coach Sonya Fernandez provided me with a complete nutrition program! She really cares about my wellbeing and is following me through my program. I’m down 10lbs and feeling great! #ultimatetransformation #weirvsdespatie
Favorite Pool/ Diving Center
Parc Jean-Drapeau Aquatic Complex is a beautiful facility with one of the best views in the city. In my career, I've been to many beautiful aquatic centers around the world but it always felt good to come back home and train in this location.
Favorite Post-Workout Food Spot
Prior to following my FitClub24 nutrition program, I used to skip my post workout meal. However, one of my favorite restaurants to grab a bite in the evening is Restaurant Inferno in little Italy.
Favorite Sports Venue
My favorite sports venue in Montreal has to be Saputo Stadium. It’s very unique and I enjoy watching a game outdoors. The energy in that place is electric.
Favorite Sports Equipment Store
I love Evangelista Sport on Boul. St-Laurent. I always find the shoes, clothes and gear that I am looking for. They have great quality and a great selection.
