November is a time for giving thanks, preparing for that Thanksgiving feast, and giving back to others in our community. This month, our team at Main Squeeze wants to shine a light on local businessman and personal trainer John B. Foret, Jr., of Muscle Activation Louisiana located within SNAP Fitness in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
John has over twenty-two years of fitness experience, training the professional athlete to the weekend warrior. He graduated from McNeese University with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and he became Louisiana’s first ever Muscle Activation Techniques Specialist. John works with individuals of all ages as well as athletes at all levels to restore muscle function, increase muscle strength, and correct muscle imbalances that often lead to pain and injury.
What is your favorite product at Main Squeeze and why?
I love my bowl of course! I also really enjoy getting the juices – it helps me add in a variety of veggies that I’m usually missing in my day-to-day diet.
What benefits have you seen since adding Main Squeeze to your routine and what keeps you coming back?
The extra boost of energy that I get is the biggest benefit. And I’m definitely feeling more positive thoughts since I know I’m doing good for my muscle system by putting the right fuel in!
What inspired you to create this bowl?
What inspired the ingredients in my bowl is that I’m a “real” person. What I mean is: I love chocolate and I love peanut butter! But I also love fruits, so combining these ingredients together into a cool, refreshing, and nutritious meal is a win-win for me. This all natural meal gives you a touch of chocolate, and a bunch of nutrients. BOOM!
John chose to use the Elevate version of our classic Acai Berry Bowl as the base. He loves the secret serving of veggies – and the lower carb count. John worked with our team to boost it with add-in’s full of muscle building proteins and anti-inflammatory fats to keep you full, satisfied, and feeling activated! Isn’t it time you got yours? #TakeBackYourHealth #LoveYourself
