KETO Athlete using Vitargo

“Vitargo is an excellent product for people on a low carb diet or not. You can take it before training, boost your performance, and quickly get back into ketosis right after training.”

For over 20 years, Canadian regional and national level Strongman, weightlifter & CrossFitter, Everett Sloan @coach.everett has been following a ketogenic diet. So how does a keto athlete training at high-intensities, involved in performance-based and glycogen-depleting sports incorporate carbs but still stay with a keto diet? Seeing his performance suffer due to the lack of carbs, Sloan was looking for a solution. He discovered Vitargo. The fast acting carbs enabled Sloan to train harder and perform better while sticking to his keto lifestyle.

Vitargo is a real game changer for him.

Everett’s Story
Growing up in Canada, Everett was an active individual wielding his father’s concrete-filled Weider weights in his basement. Once he hit college, he demonstrated a keen interest in bodybuilding and pursued that avenue for a couple of years which led to a modeling career. Everett eventually abandoned bodybuilding and moved on to compete in local powerlifting and strongman competitions, though that was short-lived as he didn’t like the toll it took on his body. For several years after that, he trained without real direction or purpose.

In 2005 Everett was involved in a severe motorcycle accident and was told he would not be able to walk again. Refusing to quit, he started moving around in his wheelchair in the hospital corridors for exercise. He defied the odds and fought his way back to his feet and into the gym.

One of the major challenges that Everett faced after the accident was his limited body movement. While relearning movements and finding ways to adapt, he turned to the web where he discovered CrossFit. Starting by incorporating some of the CrossFit methodologies in his workouts at the local gym, Everett eventually turned his garage into a gym where he and several friends trained. Everett finally joined a CrossFit box in 2010. It was there that he found the opportunity to compete in the CrossFit Canada East Regionals, which further inspired him. From that moment on, CrossFit became his passion. He decided to be a positive impact on the health and wellness of everyone in his life and in 2012, Everett opened Crossfit Bytown in Ottawa, Ontario.

Everett is happily married and a very proud father. He brings his passion for Crossfit into his gym every day for the clients he coaches and the members at Bytown Crossfit. Everett describes himself as an old school strongman trying his best to keep up with the youth in Crossfit.
