An Award-Winning Moment

As someone who’s very much accustomed to giving out awards, this moment was surreal. I’m humbled and incredibly grateful for being chosen by delegates at canfitpro conference as the Canadian Presenter of The Year Award winner for 2022!! 

Winning feels wonderful but being surrounded by my phenomenal colleagues and peers at our first in-person event in 3 years made it so much sweeter. 

I am dedicated to your career and business success, and nothing brings me more joy than seeing our industry’s positive impact on the health and happiness of your communities. Thank you for the opportunity to support and coach you, it’s my raison d’être. 

My friends captured the moment on video below, and I wanted to share with you my words of acceptance and appreciation.

Merci Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas, my dear friend, for introducing me for this award. 

Thank you, Mo, Patch, the canfitpro staff, family, and the incredible fitfam I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with in-person and virtually over the past 25 years.

It’s so wonderful to see you here in person.  You’re wearing pants! Some of them with zippers!? 😉


You inspire me!!

The veteran trainers and instructors who found resiliency over and over again these past years to keep providing your sessions and classes. You persisted in parks, at home with kids and dogs and cats running through your screen… nothing stopped you. Bravo!

The clubs and studios, supported by the Fitness Industry Council of Canada, who closed and reopened repeatedly but kept at it to serve their communities!

The rookie fitness pros who joined this industry in the past couple of years because you know with confidence that WE support the physical, mental, social, and immune health of Canadians! 

You inspire me! And I’m so grateful for each opportunity to support your careers!!

Je suis choyée et tellement reconnaissante, merci!

Fitfam: we KNOW we’re a key solution to preventive healthcare, right? We know we are essential! I invite us to make it easier for health officials and decision-makers to see that by speaking less about the bodies we sculpt and so much more about the lives we save.


Feeling stuck in your career? You are not alone! This is the feeling I often hear from fitness professionals looking for a change. Contact me so that together we can catapult your career forward. I am here to help you!
