With the adventure of a lifetime ahead of her, Canada’s own Robyn Moyles is set for the legendary challenge that is Mount Everest.
After months of preparation, Robbie leaves today (Friday, November 2) for a trip unlike anything she has faced before. But Moyles believes she has a secret weapon in completing her mission at the towering behemoth: SeaDNA seal products.
“I’m originally from Newfoundland, so consuming seal meat was a regular delicious source of protein. I was introduced to seal oil a few years back and did my own research on the benefits of replacing traditional fish oil with seal oil. Within a short period of time I noticed a significant difference in my overall athletic well being/performance and it is a great aid for post recovery workout,” Moyles says.
Robbie has been a Crossfit devotee for almost a decade and has competed competitively for the last four years. Her work ethic and dedication has earned her podium finishes both here in Canada and internationally.
Robbie, now 52, says seal oil – quite simply – works better than other Omega-3 products, “During competing season, I double up on the products which my body responds to positively from the demands of my sport. I’ve come to believe it’s a superior product and I’d never leave home without it.”
Fit, focused and prepared, Robbie will take her steps on Everest alongside an experienced Sherpa who will lead the way to base camp. Originally, Robbie had planned to be part of a small group. But as time progressed, she was the last woman standing.
“Back in August, I attended a celebration. Among the friends there was a small team planning an Everest trip to base camp. One of the team members had canceled and they needed a replacement for the upcoming expedition. I was invited along and here we are. Interestingly enough, due to unforeseen circumstances I’m now the only one going.”
With her arrival at Everest approaching quickly Robbie says, “The excitement is ‘mounting’ (LOL). My intention along with my Sherpa is to make it to base camp and from there move forward as he sees fit.”
With her body full of SeaDNA Omega-3, Robbie will also have her bag full of SeaDNA Seal Jerky as she treks Everest. She has taken three cases of the North Jerky to give her the energy she will need and says the incredible nutrition this Canadian Superfood provides is exactly what she is looking for. “The trek is monumental and the hope is to be nourished with the scenery and seal meat along the way.”
