Jesse Benjamin is Mi’kmaq, a Certified Personal Trainer, and a small animal Veterinarian. She currently works for the Provincial SPCA as a shelter animal Veterinarian.
Her love for sports started in elementary school and carried on throughout her entire schooling, even into University where she competed on the track-and-field and the cross country teams. However, as she started her career and family, she stopped exercising for about 7 years. It was during this time she lost part of herself. It took a major life change to realize she was no longer prioritizing herself, or her health. After her fourth child, she decided to start working out again.
It was after being told by a friend how she had inspired her to start making healthy life choices, that she considered becoming a personal trainer. She obtained her certification in October 2017 and now helps busy people incorporate fitness and good nutrition into their lives through online training so they can feel strong, be healthy and live well.
She currently resides in Halifax, NS, with her 4 children, 2 dogs and 3 cats. She can be found at @jesse_benjamin on Instagram where she shares daily workouts, motivation, and practical advice on living a healthy lifestyle.

Having recently reached his 60th year, Greg has a passion for inspiring others to reach their own fitness goals. Interested in all aspects of physical culture, he particularly enjoys training bodyweight skills, weightlifting and kettlebells.
It hadn’t always been that way. Faced with a number of chronic health issues growing up, Carver didn’t discover the power of healthy living until later in life.
Frustrated with being “sick and tired” all the time, Greg decided to take responsibility for his own health. He’s used his system to overcome his chronic health problems in the past, and now helps others transform their own lives, regardless of age or physical condition.
Greg credits his own success to the motivation he gets from others, be they mentor, coach or client. “I’m driven by other peoples’ enthusiasm, and love showing people how to look and feel their best”, he says.
Greg is the founder and head trainer of the StrengthBox gym in Toronto and the author of “Bar Strong: Lebert Fitness Parallette Fundamentals”. When not in the gym he can be found sharing his passion for fitness and culture on his active-vacation trips both locally and abroad.

I’m a 47 year old guy that has built his share of successes from the ground up…and more importantly, have a beautiful wife, two incredible boys and a business that allows me to spend most of my time with them along with family and friends.
In the past decade I’ve built over a dozen businesses as a CEO and Co-Owner, with five becoming million dollar or multi-million dollar ventures. Two of those businesses, Athletic Revolution and Fitness Revolution, have been multiple time winners on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 with each being the #1 franchise for it’s respective market. Another business, Fitness Consulting Group, was a multiple time honoree on the Inc. 5000, placing as high as #580 on the list of fastest growing businesses in the U.S. I’ve also been a Best-Selling Author 6 times over, presented in front of thousands of entrepreneurs and been featured in Entrepreneur, Men’s Health, USA Today and on hundreds of other media outlets.
“When it comes to sales, I’ve personally sold as many as 116 franchises in a single year and been the strategist and copywriter for over 10 million dollars in online sales from my own businesses and millions more in sales for my clients.”
In the fitness industry alone, my coaching & consulting clients have been featured in places like Men’s Health, USA Today, Men’s Fitness, Shape, Women’s Heath, Huffington Post and on ABC, CBS, NBC and pretty much any other media outlet you can think of. In addition to that, they’ve built some of the most successful businesses and brands in ever corner of the industry, from local business and supplement companies to online businesses, certification organizations and even became best selling authors. In fact, many (if not most) of the experts providing business coaching in the fitness industry have been my clients, customers or franchisees.
Few people have the “aha” or “lightbulb” moment in life, and I’ve been very lucky to experience it. After graduating from Queen’s University with an honours degree in Life Sciences in hand, and 50 extra pounds in the belly, I thought I was destined for a career in medicine, albeit not completely sure in what capacity. I took a job with a pharmaceutical company and became quickly jaded with their “sell more, people are sick” mentality.
Following my time with pharmaceuticals and a lengthy and varied career in the boating industry, some soul-searching led me back into healthcare and to ultimately discover naturopathic medicine.
After 4 years studying at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM), I graduated with the honour of representing my class as valedictorian. I am licensed to work in Ontario and have a family practice in Waterdown. I have written a naturopathic textbook with 3 remarkable colleagues, and continue to work at CCNM as an instructor and teaching assistant.
I still find myself at a healthy weight living a healthy life with a loving family, and loving a career where I can combine my passions for helping others, educating them in health, and constantly being challenged by finding new ways to help you, naturally.

I am a lifelong Chicagolander, and live outside of the city with my wife and two daughters. I enjoy family walks to the park, coffee, visiting the mountains, pizza (in moderation… mostly!) and movie nights. I was a college runner and have raced two marathons (including Chicago – an amazing experience!).
When it comes to fitness, I believe it’s important to ENJOY what you are doing for exercise, because this will translate into lifelong consistency. These days, I love exploring different equipment and movements, and continually varying my “routine”. In my work as a hospitalist (internal medicine), I care for admitted patients with a wide variety of serious illnesses. Many of the health conditions that ravage today’s society are largely preventable (or even treatable) through lifestyle modifications – namely, exercise.
I am here to help educate and encourage people to make exercise a consistent part of their lives, and spread the message that exercise is medicine!
