CHASING THE DREAM

Music of the Month

Dear 20Somethings, Have you ever met someone who inspires you so much that you cannot help but want to change your entire life that very moment and follow your dreams? “I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.” - Marilyn Monroe This month’s magazine is full of dream chasers, coming right here from our own city. I hope you enjoy reading their interviews as much as I did. They are not the only faces that are in this magazine who are pursuing the dream, I am sure of it. I leave you with one last cheesy quote that I was reading this week out of an incredible book: “You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!” - Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go! Much Love, Ashley Sidun Editor in Chief 20Something Sudbury PAGE

Health www.20somethingsudbury.ca

Health My name is Kevin Roy and this is my first article in 20SomethingSudbury. I’m a Natural Bodybuilder and a personal trainer. I’ve been bodybuilding for 3 years and I also love to help people get in the best shape of their lives. In this article I will include exercises and diet tips to get you ready for summer. All you have to do is follow these guidelines and apply them. 1. Create a plan: Don’t start your summer by procrastinating on your goal. Little things like including a healthier diet plan, writing down specific foods, getting a exercise plan and keeping track of any goals that you have in mind. 2. Follow through: Once your plan is set, begin with your diet and exercises. Incorporate bodyweight exercise for the first few weeks. Examples: Pull Ups, Push Ups, Squats, Lunges, Chin Ups, Jump squats and the list goes on. 3. Learn: In order to proceed, you have to accept your body type. You might be thin, heavier, trying to gain muscle, trying to loose fat, or even just get healthier. It is important to find the right plans for you. 4. Start training: Once your body gets used to exercising, it is time to get it to the next level! There is a huge myth about women and getting BULKY. In order for women to BULK, they would have to engage their training, and dieting to do so. Even then, women do not have the same testosterone levels that guys do. Avoid machines as much as you can once you are comfortable with weights. The reason being, if you use dumbbells and barbells you will allow your body to move more naturally while lifting which prevents injury. As for the guys, if your looking to put on quality muscle, you have to focus on the major lifts like Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press, Shoulder Press and Pull-ups. I was once a skinny 140 lbs guy, and now I’m currently 220lbs of lean muscle. It takes a lot of time to build muscle but consistency and hard work pays off. You just have to be patient. There are no shortcuts to look good and being healthy. 5. Build Confidence: After you begin to loose weight or gain muscle, whatever your goal is, you will start to feel confident with your body. Do not settle for small changes. Go for the long-term goal and feel great about yourself. Live healthy and feel good about yourself.

I will list exercises for men and women in the following. When someone starts working out, I truly suggest getting a personal trainer to help with proper form. Once you feel comfortable on your own, you can begin working out without the trainer. It is really important to focus on complete movements. Who wants partial muscles anyways? Repetition = Reps | Sets = Number of times you will perform the exercise

BEACH BODY WORKOUTS FOR WOMEN: 1) Bodyweight squats 3 sets of 30 bodyweight 2) Push Ups 3 sets of MAXIMUM 3) Lunges 3 sets of 30 steps 4) Jumping Burpees (30 seconds) 5) Abdominal Planks (30 seconds) 6) Laying Leg Raises (30 seconds) 7) Side Planks (both sides for 30 seconds)

1) Fruit: Mixed berries are high in fiber and very low in calories. They also have the ability to dissolve fat. Try not to consume fruit after 4 pm. The reason being is if you eat a lot of fruit, you will retain the simple sugars and store them as fat. Moderation is key! 2) Protein: Nuts can keep you stay full longer because they are high in protein, calcium, and fiber. They also help regulate blood sugar levels. Consume lots of protein throughout the day to help repair your muscles. It’s also BBQ season so make sure to use it! You can create excellent salads with chicken, steak and fish. Protein supplements are also great for men and women.

BEACH BODY WORKOUTS FOR MEN: 1) Squats 3 sets of 15 reps (You don’t want chicken legs right ?) 2) Flat Barbell Bench Press 3 sets 10 repetitions (4 second negative) 3) Deadlifts and perform shrugging motion at the top (3 sets 10 repetitions) 4) Pull Ups (3 X Maximum pull-ups) 5) Clean and Press(3 sets 10 repetitions) 6) Hanging Leg Raises (3 sets maximum) 7) Abdominal Leg Raises (3 sets of maximum) Now that you have a good idea about exercises and how to set your goal, I will talk about nutrition. I believe that diet is 100% and training is 100 %. There is no 60\40 or 40\60 ratio. You are what you eat. If your diet isn’t mapped correctly to shape you up for this summer, you will be achieving your fat loss and gaining muscle goals as you open your Christmas Gift. So start preparing your meals with these great ideas.

3) Fats: Some may not know this, but with fat you will burn fat. Great sources of fats come from Olive Oil (Vinaigrettes on salads) Coconut Oil is great to cook in because you are cooking in healthy fats. Other good fat sources come from Avocados, Macadamia nuts, mixed nuts and almonds. Add those in a salad for the extra crunch. 4) Carbohydrates: Some carbohydrates are good for you. Once again, try not to consume carbohydrates past 4-6 pm. Good sources of carbohydrates are Oats, Rice, Quinoa and Sweet potatoes. Now you have everything you need to know in order to get ready for the beach. When working towards a goal, be patient because results don’t happen overnight. Work hard towards your goal and you will get there in no time. Make it the best summer yet! -Kevin Roy

Fashion Forward www.20somethingsudbury.ca

Fashion With her unexpectedness of day-to-day choices, 20 Something Courtney Kennedys closet is one to covet and she has opened her closet doors to share with us what inspires her as a 20 something.

20SS: What is your favourite spot to shop in new Sudbury?

20SS: How would you describe a good fashion icon?

20SS: A tip for a 20 something

CK: I think a good fashion icon needs to have attitude and confidence in what they are wearing and also someone who is able to show their personality through their outfits. A good fashion icon is able to present themselves to the world without having to say a word. They are continuously showing people who they are through their style and they can revamp it whenever they want.

CK: Always be confident and comfortable in what you are wearing because you want to be wearing your clothes. You don’t want your clothes to wear you. If you want to wear crazy printed pants, then rock those pants!

20SS: Your Biggest fashion peeve? CK: My biggest fashion peeve is when people wear pajamas out in public. 20SS: How do you embrace colour? CK: I don’t have a lot of colour in my wardrobe, so I’ll embrace colour through accessories and make up. A bright colour of lipstick can change an entire look of an outfit, also bright nail polish.

CK: My favourite spot to shop is Aldo or Spring. I know it’s not clothing but I have a major shoe obsession. I feel like a new pair of shoes can spice up old outfits and they are a good investment.

20SS: Your closet essential must haves? CK: Wedges are my number one must have. You can go out and mingle while looking amazing without feeling like your feet are going to fall off. Another must have is red lipstick. Red lipstick can dress up even the drabbest outfits. 20SS: Your favourite place to dress up and dine out in Sudbury? CK:My favourite place to dress up and dine out in Sudbury is the Buddha. You can sit down and have great food with great people.

Favourite part of working at The Ten: There are a lot of reasons on why it’s my favourite place to work, aside from the music and the people I meet every weekend, I’d have to say the thing that stands out the most, is the fact that I work for my family, and all of the staff that works for us, are some of my best friends, and family members. Couldn’t ask for a better work environment. Are there any upcoming events or promotions we should know about: We’re always trying to keep it exciting for everyone. Always coming up with exciting ideas and fresh new talent. For May we’ve got 4korners, GrandTheft, Botnek and many more. And some exciting outdoor events for summer 2013 as well, it’s going to be one amazing patio season, I promise! Something interesting people do not know about you: I’m obsessed with collecting movies. I think I have over 1000 DVD’s. I mean I guess I won’t be bored on a rainy day…Right? Haha What is the craziest thing that has ever happened to you while working at The Ten? Hmm, that’s a tough one. But there’s never a dull moment in the nightclub industry. From hosting exciting after parties for big name concerts, to celebrities stopping by, to meeting all sorts of different people, it always seems to keep my job interesting. What fictional character do you think is most like you? I’d have to say that the fictional character that represents me the most would have to be pretty much any female character in a drama, or comedy. I always care for the ones I love. And always put my friends and family before myself, no matter the situation. And I’m known to make people laugh every now and again too!

LAURA CLEMENT age26 MANAGER/BARTENDER

THE TEN

When you are not working at The Ten what are you doing? When I’m not at work, I’m always thinking about it. But, I’m usually with friends or family, having a few laughs, and just taking it easy while I can. Being in the position I’m in, I’m constantly trying to bring new and fresh ideas to work, so that as a business, we can make it an enjoyable place for everyone.

Music of the Month www.20somethingsudbury.ca

OUTRIVAL IS COMPRISED OF MEMBERS:

ANDREA SOLSKI - VOCALS CHRIS MASSON - LEAD GUITAR DAN BUTLER - RHYTHM GUITAR JON DUMAS - BASS KYLE PARKINSON - DRUMS

20SS: So this year has been pretty crazy to say the least. What moment as a band sticks out to you the most? OR: As a band just starting out, we’ve had so many great moments that will stay with us forever; it’s hard to name just one! Right from the start, with winning the Q 92 Rock Band Rumble, having the honor of opening up for Rock and Roll legends Trooper and Blue Oyster Cult, we have our first single Stagnant Life on regular rotation on Q92 who had even invited us in to perform a Christmas song in December. We played our own rendition of Queen’s “Thank god it’s Christmas” live on the air which was also a truly amazing experience. 20SS: Your first single Stagnant Life has been getting some pretty heavy airplay on Q92. What’s it like hearing something you created on the radio? OR: Amazing, it’s a dream come true. Something that we created in the basement

is now being heard all over the city. When we catch it playing, there is always an overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment… even though we’ve been playing it for a year! As a band, the goal is to get your music out there and hope that people grasp it. We’ve had the amazing opportunity to live that dream, and we’ve had a very positive response from everyone. We couldn’t ask for anything more than that! 20SS: Speaking of Stagnant Life, mind going into a little detail on the meaning behind the song?

OUTRIVAL In the music world, a lot can happen in one year. Just ask local band OutRival. The five-piece rock band was assembled in February 2012, for the purpose of competing in Q-92’s annual “Rock Band Rumble” competition. OutRival went on to win the grand prize over 3 rounds,

OR: I (Andrea) had written the lyrics to Stagnant Life about 2 years ago. At that time, it felt like I was living someone else’s idea of a life. In a nutshell, it’s about not living up to your full potential and knowing it. It’s about wanting to break out of that life and into the world to chase your dreams, but realizing how difficult it is to do it and how much there is to overcome. It’s a longing for experience and hoping for the day that I can be proud of my accomplishments.

and 9 other local original bands. Not bad for a band that had just formed a month prior. Due to their success in the competition, OutRival decided to keep writing, focusing on original material. OutRival was never out of the spotlight throughout the year. There were many highlights in 2012, but the standout was opening up for Legendary acts Trooper, and Blue Oyster Cult at Sudbury Summerfest. The band also opened for Monster Truck at the first annual Sudbury New Music Fest, and was also featured on The Episode. You can catch OutRival’s first single Stagnant Life, on Q-92 where it is getting frequent airplay.

20SS: Word on the street is that you guys are in the studio. How’s that going? OR: It’s going great! We’re working on finishing our EP, which should be done by the end of April. It’s been a long process and we have learned a lot. We have been working with some great people, Billy Bruhmueller, Cosmic Dave’s, and Metal Works Studios in Mississauga. 20SS: What’s next for Outrival? Tour? Album? Fill us in! OR: We will continue to strive to be the best band we can be, and continue to write music that we love. We’re planning on releasing our EP this spring, which will be available on iTunes, and we plan to be out promoting it at numerous events and festivals all over Ontario this summer. We had an amazing year in 2012 and we are so excited to see what 2013 will bring.

freedom at last

mAY 2-4 KRISTOFER CACCIOTTI

The May 2-4 long weekend is more than just a three-day holiday. It represents an escape; breaking free of the shackles of winter, and enjoying everything that late spring/early summer has to offer. The most common May 2-4 past time is to get out and enjoy nature. May 2-4 is the first long weekend after the snow melts, and being the advantageous species we are, we tend to make the most of the opportunity. Hoards of people will take to their cottages and camps, as well as the many National Parks and lakes that are sprinkled around our beautiful city, to enjoy activities like wakeboarding, tubing, hiking, camping, and fishing (among many others). Speaking of the latter, May 2-4 also doubles as opening day for pickerel. I would be drawn and quartered if I told anyone where people are going for pickerel opening, so we’ll leave it at that. The southern tip of Georgian Bay is another beautiful location to spend the May 2-4 long weekend. Sauble Beach and Wasaga Beach are two great places to set up a tent, and enjoy the company of hundreds of people, all partying as hard as you are. Also, both have a cool surf town feel, giving the weekend a really chill vibe. On the North End of Georgian Bay, Manitoulin Island will be a very busy place as well. People will head to their camps to fire them up for the summer, put their boats and docks in the water, and make sure everything is on point for the upcoming summer. No matter what you’re doing, there is a good chance that alcohol will be involved. Please drink responsibly. Enjoy the weekend ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the forest, the lake, the camp, the cottage, the Blue Jays game, the family vacation, the golf course, the beach, or any other activity that you dub worthy of this extraordinary weekend. And take lots of photos, because you know there’s going to be a City’s World photo contest a brewin’

Andrew Hyatt www.20somethingsudbury.ca

W E R D T N A YAT H When did you first become interested in being a musician? Thirteen years ago, which is why this record is called Thirteen. I wanted to remember why I started playing in the first place, doing it for myself and not to impress anyone.

Who are your influences? My influences growing up were very much Our Lady Peace, Goo Goo Dolls, Life House, MxPx, Sloan, Matt Good Band, Bush, U2, Butch Walker and many, many more.

How has your sound or style as a musician changed over thirteen years? Well, I learned how to sing somewhere along the way. I am still working on guitar (haha.) But, I think my songwriting has developed structurally. At least, I believe it has. I’ve learned to sing about what I know. I find people don’t respond the same or connect to songs written “just because”…at least, for my own music anyway.

PAGE

16


Andrew Hyatt www.20somethingsudbury.ca

Where do you find inspiration for a song?

What do you do when you are not making music?

What is next after this record for Andrew Hyatt?

My inspiration comes from dreams, life, growing up (which I am still doing.) Also, definitely my own experiences with heart break and God.

Work. School. Netlfix. Same as everyone else. I like fishing and camping. I seem to be more involved in work and school right now, but I look forward to summer.

I’ve already started writing for an acoustic EP and I also have a bunch of cover videos to do because it was one of the pre-order options for this record. You could pay me to cover any song. Turns out, I’m going to be pretty busy this summer with that alone.

What is the name of the new record and when will it be available? Thirteen is the name of the record and it all goes according to schedule it will be ready toward the middle of May, end of May at the latest.

Are you planning on having a release party and touring at all with this new record? Both are in the works. Nothing at this time is set in stone but I’d like to do more of a weekend tour schedule. It works better with work and other music commitments. As far as a cd release, I want to do something a little different this time. Possibly a few smaller shows over the course of a weekend – I feel like I want to tell every story of every song and that works best in a more intimate setting.

What is your favourite thing about Sudbury? A far as the city goes, I’d say summer time and how nice it is here with all of the lakes. I love the people here. I have a great group of friends and it is always expanding. I used to think that this city was dead musically. As it turned out, I just wasn’t plugged in. I’ve started to meet and really respect a ton of musicians in this town. There is so much talent here.

What is the most memorable experience you have had so far as a musician? I am not sure if I can name just one. I remember once when I was 17 I toured with a guy named Sean Dayton and we played a really big show and I can remember standing there and just hearing the crowd, I knew I was hooked. Then again, opening up for Dean Brody was really neat and being on Much Music was fun as well! There are far too many good memories to name just one.

How can people pay for you to cover a song of their choice? If you go to www.gofundme.com/andrewhyatt, there is a section for a cover. Follow Andrew Hyatt on Twitter @AndrewHyattBand and Andrew Hyatt Band on Facebook.

Sudlebs www.20somethingsudbury.ca

sudleb lana tailor 20SS: How do you keep yourself motivated and on track? LT: I take breaks from strict diets. I believe in living life to the fullest, so refusing to indulge in wine and chocolate is just sinful! With that said, everything is good in moderation. 20SS: Favorite part of what you do? LT: My career has taken me all over the world. I’ve seen creatures I never knew existed, plunged into caves in the jungles of Cancun, Mexico, and even biked down a volcano on a Hawaiian island. So, I’m extremely grateful on so many levels. The best part of it all is, and always has been, the adventure. 20SS: A day in the life of Lana Tailor – what is your daily routine like? LT: Now that I’m back in Sudbury, my daily routine includes personally training members of the community at “T2/The Gym”, writing for “Inside Fitness Magazine” all while finishing my degree in Labour Studies with a Minor in Communications Studies. 20SS: You have an article in Inside Fitness,tell us a little about this LT: I’ve always had a passion for journalism, and being able to write about the science of fitness and nutrition is an absolute dream come true for me. My style of writing resonates very well with the Inside Fitness brand, so it all fell into place. Not only that, but it’s also a great method to teach others about health and fitness. 20SS: You’ve been on the cover a few different magazines, what is this like and how do you feel to see yourself here? LT: I’ve been so fortunate to be on several covers, and it does feel surreal at times. When I was younger, I used to pray to God that I would be published in magazines and be featured on billboards. I even prayed to host my own adventure/travel show... I’m not joking. It all came true! All of it! When I’m asked, “how do you feel?” I feel a great sense of accomplishment. None of it came easy, and so working through the trials and tribulations made me who I am today. 20SS: What is your favorite style of training when you’re preparing for a fitness competition or photo shoot? LT: My favourite exercise is the infamous leg press. I rarely do cardio as I workout at a higher intensity, which replaces it all together. However, I do enjoy being outside, so biking in the summer is probably the highest intensity of cardio I ever do. 20SS: You have a background in Broadcast Journalism, is this something you plan to pursue while in Sudbury? 20SS: What influenced you to get into fitness and fitness competitions? LT: During my modeling and on-screen career, it was imperative to stay in shape; but, knowing I “had to” made me do the bare minimum. However, when I took a break from the limelight, I started pushing really hard and truly enjoying it. It was then I decided to go all the way and hit the stage. 20SS:What has been your biggest accomplishment? LT: My biggest accomplishment, career wise has been playing in the Celebrity Beach Bowl (Superbowl prelude) in Dallas alongside Warren Moon, Barry Sanders, and Eli Manning. To boot, I got to party with my then “boss”, Mark Cuban. Being a part of his network, HDNET, now known as AXS TV has been a tremendous part of my success and an unforgettable journey in my life.

LT: I studied Broadcast Journalism thinking I wanted a career in front of the camera; however, I prefer to “lay low” for now and finish my degree in Labour Studies. 20SS: You are back in Sudbury, what are your future plans? LT: I’m looking to invest in real estate and work as a Human Resources Manger for a Union. One-step at a time. 20SS: Something we might not know about you? LT: I have an undeniable passion for camping, playing horseshoes, and sitting around a campfire with great company and some wine.

sudleb shawn mclaren 20SS – What influenced you to get into comedy and standup?

20SS: What is next for Shawn McLaren?

SM: I always enjoyed making people laugh and I grew up as a fat kid all my life. I think that growing up; I found confidence in making people laugh. As I grew older, I gravitated towards participating in things like improve and theatre. I finally got the courage to try stand up about 3 years back in the first LOL Sudbury Comedy Competition. I wanted to see if I could make people laugh with my material in that format.

SM: I really don’t know. I am at a point in my life where all of the creative and fun things that I have been doing on the side now have the potential to take off. I am in a position where I have some exciting projects set up with some really talented people. I just have to take the time to see them through and do them to the best of my ability. I have always been a sufferer of Shiny Object Syndrome. I see something new and exciting and I drop what I am doing to go check it out. I get excited about so many things that I have hard time focusing on one. Right now, I am working on launching my website, booking more comedy shows and working on a podcast. Hopefully in the near future, I will be working on more independent film projects with Motion Arc Studios and someday...when I actually finish writing it, I will fulfill a lifelong dream of publishing a comic book with an extremely talented local artist.

20SS: What has been your biggest accomplishment? SM: Waking up in the morning is a pretty big deal for me. I really don’t know what I would say my biggest accomplishment would be. Everything I do becomes the best thing ever in that moment. I am proud of the fundraising efforts I worked on when I was with KICX 917 and helping the KICX for KIDS campaign reach 3 quarters of its five-year goal in less than 2 years. I am also really stoked that I have come as far as I have as a stand up comic and holding on to sweet, sweet second place in the LOL Sudbury Crown of Comedy contest 3 years running. I am Sudbury’s Elvis Stojko without the leotard. 20SS: How do you keep yourself motivated and on track? SM: I don’t lack ambition. I do lack motivation and self-discipline. When I know that I have 5 projects on the go and I am not making the time to finish them, I sit back and remember how pissed off I will be if I let myself down. I firmly believe that the only person holding you back is YOU. I am my own worst critic and my biggest fan at the same time. I wish that I could just think of something and it will materialize out of thin air but the truth is that the only way you are going to accomplish something great is by actually sitting down and hammering it out, even if partying or hanging out with friends is more tempting.

20SS: What do you want to say to anyone who is trying to get their own creative projects off the ground? SM: Don’t be lazy, advice I wish I would take for myself sometimes. You have to just do it without thinking about the end results. Odds are, the book you want to write or the stand up set you want to do will not make you millions of dollars on your first attempt, and you have to remember that. Do it because you NEED to do it. I think that might be the difference between people who talk a good game and those who have one. I got sick of being a guy who always talked about these awesome things I wanted to do but never got around to. I may not do everything I want to but I take great pride in the stuff that I do accomplish. Each and every time I step off stage or I write something I like, I get excited for the next time I can feel that way. Revel in how good it feels to do something you always wanted to do, and remember, you might suck in the beginning but that is awesome and it only gives you something to work towards.

20SS: Favorite part of what you do? SM: Trying new things and seeing the reaction. I love getting up on stage and having a night where I didn’t tell one of the jokes I had planned on. There are some nights where the crowd, the vibe, everything just adds up and allows you to get into this totally different comfort level where you don’t care if you are trying out a new joke that you came up with 5 minutes before the show. It works out the best when you actually hear them laughing at it. 20SS: A day in the life of Shawn McLaren – what is your daily routine like? 
 SM: What routine? I have been trying desperately for years to come up with a routine but I feel like life is constantly changing and shifting. I do my 
 best to keep up with it. I try to make sure that a few things never change about my day. I make sure that I eat something, sleep at some point and try to high five as many people as I can. Also, try to do some writing and think really hard about going to the gym. 
 20SS: Where do you see comedy and entertainment going in Sudbury? SM: I think we are on the cusp of a really cool time in Sudbury. We have so many creative people working together to bring some awesome stuff to audiences and I think that the response has been strong so far. Our open mic nights at Little Montreal have been packed lately. LOL Sudbury had some great crowds. The burlesque guys and dolls have been knocking it out of the park at the Fromagerie on Elgin. I think these are just examples of the start of something that Sudbury has been missing. People in this town are looking for something to do and just going out and getting drunk isn’t cutting it anymore. More and more open mics, comedy shows, burlesque, whatever you want, is popping up in this town and people are digging it. I just can’t wait to show them more and I hope that the crowds keep coming.
