I’ve had the pleasure of leading teams of 5 to 500 in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years in a variety of settings and I KNOW what fit pros want from their leaders.
I’ve had more than my share of 3am “cortisol wake-up” moments dreading having to deal with relationship issues and not knowing how difficult conversations would go… therefore avoiding them and crossing my fingers that things would just get better. They never do, and I’ve had to deal with the consequences of my inaction.
My Joie de Lead program is the culmination of years of leadership highs and lows, learning, coaching, growing, and finally quitting my big executive position to do what I know will truly make a difference for leaders. I’m providing you with the safe space you need to grow with confidence and become a joyful leader that sleeps soundly!

Helping to bring out the best in anyone
I have had the pleasure of having Nathalie’s leadership for the last decade and her guidance has enabled me to evolve not only as a leader, but also a person. Leading with love is not just a saying, or contemporary catch phrase, for Nathalie as she truly works to bring the best out in people, find solutions, and push for growth.
No matter what, Nathalie's always in your corner
During my various roles within canfitpro, she supported my self-development and inspired me to continue my education with leadership driven courses. During some of the tough times in my role as management, she kept my head held high and helped me work thru some of my self-doubts. Her ability to inspire and motivate others is effortlessly genuine and part of her joie de vivre. Nathalie is personable, passionate, inspiring, motivational and has a wealth of experience to help lead anyone thru their goals and personal development.
There's a BIG difference between being a 'boss' vs a Leader
It is one thing to be a boss, another thing to be a mentor but a completely different thing to be a leader. I am proud to have worked under Nathalie’s leadership. She was a one-of-a-kind boss!
Her passion and experience is undeniable!
Nathalie's ability to make people feel comfortable in any situation is one of her strongest assets, whether leading a group through fitness, sharing through speaking engagements or chairing a panel discussion or meeting. Her depth of experience and her passion for people emanates. I have had the pleasure of working with Nathalie for nearly 10 years. She is one of the hardest working people I know, always prepared and always ready to meet any challenge with a smile on her face.
The evolution of leadership
Nathalie is bravely forging an evolution in leadership. Her values are based in love, truth, and expansion and emphasizes building deep and meaningful relationships, creating continual growth for individuals and organizations. Her exuberance and heart-centred approach has both nurtured and empowered me in my career and personal life. Nathalie's method is dynamic, impactful, and elevating leaders to a new level of consciousness and that's exactly what this world needs right now!
Engaging, authentic and entertaining
Nathalie is an engaging, authentic, and entertaining speaker! Her experiences and ability to engage an audience through storytelling is untapped. As a leader in the fitness industry Nathalie brings many lessons, perspectives and humour to the table.
Leading others by empowering them
Nathalie is a special leader who takes pride in leading from behind positioned to constantly push others forward with her positive energy, enthusiasm, and creative thinking. Her leadership approach is to empower and equip leaders for their professional journey while creating a freedom to make mistakes and learn lifelong lessons from them. She is a team player and can rally a group of people on command. Nathalie has a deep care and compassion for people, especially those she leads
Thank you for believing in me!
Beyond being an amazing leader, Nathalie is a caring and compassionate coach and human. I had the pleasure of seeing Nathalie's ability to quickly identify the strengths in everyone she leads and changing her style to give the support each individual required to grow and take risks without fear of failure. Thank you for giving me the trust and support to achieve more than I thought would be possible.
A great leader that cares for her team
Nathalie is perhaps the perfect combination as a results driven leader who also has tremendous compassion and caring for her team. She is an absolute pleasure to be around and one of the kindest people I’ve known in my years with GoodLife and canfitpro. Nathalie has boundless energy and is equally comfortable speaking one-on- one with direct reports or to an auditorium filled with thousands of people. I will miss Nathalie as she moves on to the next stage of her career but look forward to our paths crossing again one day.
Nathalie is committed and peaks from the heart
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Nathalie Lacombe for several years. We have presented together as keynote speakers at numerous events and I always enjoy Nathalie’s humour and deeply respect her values. In her numerous capacities of service to others in the fitness and wellness industry, Nathalie has always shown a high degree of professionalism. She is committed to creating wellness for all and uses her vast array of skills to achieve this goal. Nathalie possesses significant abilities as a communicator. When Nathalie speaks, it is always from her heart, through which she delivers her message with humour, intelligence and truth. From the stage, and she can handle a big stage, she radiates confidence, grips her audience and gets to the point. There are always numerous A-Ha moments and takeaways to be had. In her upcoming projects, including Leadership Coaching, she will undoubtedly prove to be a powerful mentor. It is my pleasure to call Nathalie Lacombe a friend and a peer in our wellness work. Much success to you!
Confident, exceptional and inspirational
Nathalie is an exceptional and inspirational leader who shows true care to all associates. I am very lucky to have worked with her and learned from her for my very first manager role. Her confidence and passion drives the team together. She cares about the bottom line but even cares more about her people behind the numbers. I am very grateful to be trusted and encouraged by her to grow in my career.
Always the consummate professional
Nathalie is the consummate professional and has been a pleasure to work with. Our MANIA® Fitness Convention attendees love her! We are excited to bring her to the Club Industry Business Summits that we run throughout the USA.
Your presentation was one of my favorite ones that I attended with not only your knowledge but also with your brand of who you are. Thanks for being a great Fitness Ambassador for our industry.
