Krista has had the privilege of training under Remo Bucci, who has worked and treated Olympic athletes. She has explored the art of shiatsu and thai massage. "I believe it is important to treat and assess the body in layers. I don't just want to fix the symptom, but would rather delve into the condition preventing chronic reoccurrence. Healing is about tailoring a program for an individual. My goal is to pair massage and remedial exercise combining a treatment plan that is personal and effective."
Krista has practiced yoga for 10 years and has found it has profoundly changed her life. "Yoga has not only balanced my body, but has alleviated my stress and brought clarity into my life. I believe in not only the physical practices of yoga, but the power that it brings off the mat in relation to myself and those around me, the guidance of our breath, and the ability to still the mind and look within ourselves. In such a fast paced world the importance of finding compassion for ourselves and those around us is great. Yoga can bring us home.
May you always have love in your thoughts, compassion in your words, and grace in your hearts. Deep peace and infinite blessings to all.”

Catherine Garceau is a dynamic health motivator and speaker. Catherine’s unconventional healing path began after her life as an Olympian (in synchronized swimming) when she discovered that chlorinated water was a big part of the toxic environment that was making her sick. As she dove deep into the world of water and wellness, she learned about many other sources of toxicity found in our world today, including her unfelt and unresolved emotions.
In 2006, during a life altering day and night spent caught in the Red Rocks of Las Vegas, Catherine’s mission to educate and inspire others was birthed. With her eyes set on inspiring a wave of healthier pools free from chlorine byproducts, Catherine knew that cleaning up the water we drink and bathe in wasn’t enough…Thus, gathering insight from her battles with eating disorders and completing certificates in psychology of eating and body-mind nutrition, she developed EAT 360 – Emotional Awareness Training for 360 Degrees of Nourishment – to help women gain freedom in their relationship with food, body and mind.
Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, she believes that wholeness occurs from having faith and taking daily actions to embrace positive thinking, freedom of choice, emotional awareness, and nurturing movement and nourishment. Catherine’s energy and enthusiasm inspires us to discover our own pearls of wisdom as we realize the incredible possibilities that life has to offer.

This is a natural fit for me, because I love helping people and I’ve been told I have the gift of gab!

Don’t we ALL want to know HOW TO find meet and attract the right one?
During my career I attended hundreds of events, and met thousands of men and women single and in relationships that shared their stories with me about their experiences, trial, tribulations and successes when it comes to finding love. I wrote my first E-Book early this year The Ultimate A-Z guide to Attracting and Keeping Your Soul Mate, which is all about tips and secrets to achieving one’s goal of meeting the right person.

From a very young age, Gregory has been exposed to clothing and style as a way to represent one's self to the world. His father, Randy Lalonde, opened up a menswear store when he started primary school. For years, every day after the final bell rang, the school bus dropped him off at the front door of Blazer For Men. Cleaning the floors, dusting the shelves and counting inventory were some of the first tasks assigned by his father, but by the time it came to head off to University, Gregory was handily helping customers find and put together new ways of showing off their own unique style.
While studying International Business and Japanese at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, he held a sales position at a reputable menswear store on the popular West Broadway strip. It seemed that his menswear background would not be easily shaken. Gregory also spent two years living in Tokyo, Japan, where he would develop a broader perspective for style and gain major life experience.
It was both of his and his father's philosophy that it would not be in the best interest for either Gregory nor Blazer For Men for him to work at the store immediately after University. He firmly planted his feet on the wholesale side of the business to gain knowledge of both sides, but also to experience how many other stores operated. After a couple of years building international brands' retail presence in North America, Gregory was offered a position at his father's store, Blazer For Men. He accepted.
Gregory shares the perspective with his father that clothes are not merely utility. Clothes—and by extension, your personal style—speak to people you meet before you even have a chance to say anything at all. Style is a confidence booster. It's your front line for first impressions. It's a chance to show that you are comfortable with your surroundings, and by extension confident in yourself. Other people notice these things, and tend to trust those who trust themselves. Dressing well is not the be-all-and-end-all way to the top of the social food chain, but by maintaining and updating your personal style, you just may gain that extra edge others look for.
It is Gregory's mission to provide an exceptional experience for those seeking to look and feel better through personal style. This means scouring the globe for the latest styles, and constantly innovating the shopping experience. For more information, visit www.blazerformen.com , or visit him in store!

“Educating our Youth on How to Live Healthy and Active Lives”
Liz knows there is a strong connection between health and performance. The success of our youth can only be achieved when they are healthy! However, nearly all kids do not get enough exercise nowadays and are uneducated when it comes to knowing how to live a healthy and active life.
Liz’s is taking preventative action with regards to her prime concern, which is, the lack of nutritional knowledge and physical activity our youth participate in. With over 6 years of experience working in schools with youth, and within the health and wellness industry, she has realized that, unfortunately, youth do not concern themselves with their health. There is a lack of awareness and knowledge on how to take proper care of your body with regards to physical activity and making healthy nutritional choices. Many of the health issues adults face today could have been prevented if they were educated earlier on in their lives.
Liz has combined her education and fitness expertise to create the Liz Martino Fitness program. The program contains 3 main components that include learning expectations from the Ontario Health and Physical Education and Science curriculums;
• The ‘Healthy Living’ seminar – Students are taught how to set personal and fitness goals and relevant fitness and nutrition information they can utilize in their everyday lives
• Fitness Assessment/Progress Tracker – Students execute the fitness assessment and are provided with the Progress Tracker to measure their progress and stay committed to their goals
• Fitness Challenge – Students perform a variety of circuit based exercises as a class to enforce that staying active is fun!
Liz’s mission statement:
“I aim to bring a healthy change with positive motivation to our youth of today! I want to create a future of healthy individuals who can function at their fullest potential! A youth fitness and health revolution is what I call it! Let’s work together to uphold the importance of the life long benefits that our children and youth will reap when they are taught the proper form of nutrition and the benefits of daily exercise! This way, our future will be strong enough to withstand any form of disease and be able to thrive on our planet!
Let’s make our youth better today, for tomorrow!!!”

Giselle Curcio is a National Educator for Advanced Skincare and Cosmetic Enhancement. She travels across Canada teaching others about the science and physiology of the skin, as well as new trends and technologies in the industry. She is also a freelance writer and speaks at industry related media conferences, while maintaining her passion for fitness as a Bikini Competitor in the OPA.
October 22nd, 2010 was my debut to the fitness-modeling world. From there I have climbed the fitness and bikini model world, having graced many stages over the past year, from UFE shows, IDFA, SAF, Fitness Star, OPA and CBBF.
The past two years havebeen a true test of both inner and outer strength. Not only in gaining knowledge and expertise to compete but also how to over come road blocks. As I learned very quickly, consistency in ones diet is paramount, as everyday presents itself with many speed bumps. I soon realised that the true test of mental and physical strength is pushing through and staying focused on your goals and dreams…even when that chocolate bar is screaming your name! Thanks to great coaching, colleagues and family, I persevered and even surprised myself in my achievements.
To be a true role model you must emulate a high standard of health, fitness and nutrition. Everyday I am a motivator, life coach and practitioner of my beliefs. I feel that in order to motivate others I must practice what I preach. As a fitness role model and spokes model, I want to be a voice giving me a platform to encourage, motivate, educate and inspire fans, customers, clients and athletes alike.
