Our Inspiration

We are all capable of pushing our bodies and minds to do amazing things. No matter what your age, profession, or athletic ability, personal fitness goals can lead you to do things that you never even dreamed. 

We are always excited to meet people that are passionate about fitness and motivated to take on personal challenges. For them, success is more about completing an incredible physical feat or beating a personal best, than measuring themselves against others. 

Our Inspirations are self-motivated on their own fitness journey, and are first to encourage others to achieve their goals. We would like to introduce you to some people that inspire us with their mental and physical dedication to athletics, and who exemplify what it means to be “a good sport.”

Joanna Marie Nicholson

Joanna was encouraged by a colleague to run her first 5km race back in 2010. Since then, she has traversed thousands of kilometres running, cycling and swimming while competing as a triathlete; helped raise thousands of dollars for charity; and continued to encourage those around her to start their own fitness journey.

While inspiring those around her, Joanna is in fierce competition with herself. That drive has pushed her to finish in top places in races including top 20 women at the 2016 Guelph Sprint Duathlon.

Did we mention that she also achieved her culinary school diploma while working full-time as a communications professional? Read more about Joanna’s amazing accomplishments, her tips for success and her favourite recipes, here!
