Christian Wuest

 

Which city were you born in?

Sherbrooke, Quebec

What is your favourite way to stay active?

Hitting the gym or going for a run with friends. The Royal Glenora stairs in Edmonton are a killer.

What are you favourite supplements and why?

PVL Iso-Gold Whey Isolate, Revolution Nutrition BCAA Splash, and BSN N.O. Xplode. The reason I take protein is a given, BCAA Splash is the best tasting BCAA powder I've ever used and helps with protein synthesis, and N.O. Xplode because I work out at 7am every day and it helps get me out of bed with energy to hit the gym. I’m not a fan of the gym in the evening. It’s way too busy, and I hate being in crowds :P

What are your favourite movies?

This is a hard question. I watch a lot of comedies. The last good one I saw was The Heat. I think my favourite movies of all time would have to be Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero with Jet Li. I love martial arts movies. Oh yeah, I’m cool :P

What are your favourite TV shows?

I watch a lot of anime. Attack on Titan was great. I also enjoy Sunday night cartoons such as Family Guy, American Dad and The Simpsons. The last show I watched on Netflix was a British sitcom called The I.T. Crowd. So funny!

What are you favourite songs on your iPod right now?

Angels (Love Thy Brother Remix), Neutralize (Crayen ft. Veela), and (showing my geeky side a bit here) This Silence is Mine from the Drakengard 3 soundtrack.

What is your favourite way to relax?

Gaming, Going to the gym, watching Netflix, eating out, or hanging with friends.

What are your favourite books?

Anything by Neil Gaiman or JRR Tolkien because they’re classics.

Where’s Waldo?

This is a stupid question. Waldo is a fictional character.

If you could be any fictional character who would you be?

Waldo

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?

Japan, Ireland or somewhere tropical like Hawaii.

What do you like about being part of the Vitamart.ca team?

What is your favourite smell?

Fresh baked cookies, brownies, pie or cinnamon rolls… mmm I love me some sweets.

What is your favourite sound?

Arwen speaking Elvish. I could put that on repeat and fall asleep to it every night. Yeah, that’s the stuff…

If you were a superhero what would your super power be?

Flight or telekinesis. If I had to choose one it would probably be telekinesis though.

Cats (both small and large). They’re just so agile, graceful and powerful for their size. I want to be just like them when I grow up!

What is your favourite time of year?

Spring or fall. The sound of crunching leaves reminds me of potato chips, and I hate mosquitoes.

What do you typically have for breakfast?

Either a spinach omelette or a blueberry smoothie. I love blueberries.

What is your favourite meal?

Pizza with ice cream for dessert. I’m a fatty at heart.

What is your favourite fruit or vegetable?

What is your favourite flavour of ice cream?

I don’t usually like flavoured ice cream. My favourite prepared ice cream treats would have to be Reese’s Pieces in soft serve ice cream or peanuts and hot fudge on soft serve. I don’t think I have to mention which fast food restaurant I frequent most often :P

What is your favourite website?

Is this a trick question? Vitamart.ca, of course! *shifty eyes*. But in all honesty, I don’t usually go online outside of work. I spend so much time online during the day that I just want to stay offline when I’m at home.
