Rachelle Wintzen.

So I wrote about my #mancrush Ben Dussault yesterday, now I gotta talk about my #womancrush today.

I’m not the first to publicly admit it, and it's not the first time either, and I may sound like a bit of a creep too, but this girl is absolutely drop dead gorgeous! Inside and out!

Rachelle is the real deal. She exudes confidence like Beyonce, she hustles like Jay-Z, and she’s got a New York state of mind! Among all of the high caliber qualities she upholds, I’ve always admired her work ethic. You want this girl on your team, otherwise, you are in for a ride! When she puts her mind to something, or when she says she's going to do something, it's already done without question. Many people talk the talk and without walking the walk, she's one of those dying breeds of people that under-promise and over-deliver. 

Not only does Rachelle operate and own her own private yoga studio called The Chi Junky Studio in Leslieville, but (big breath…) she is also a Certified Yoga Instructor, Holistic Nutritionist, Iridologist, Colon Hydrotherapist, and she teaches branding and professional practice as a Professor at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition…did I mention she is also the face and ambassador of Flow Water!?!?        

Whenever we get together, we share our love for the business of Fitness. Our entrepreneurial minds can’t help but be creative, innovative, and goal-oriented. When with Rachelle, my passion around the idea of fitness as an industry ignites, but my passion grows like wildfire around the idea of fitness as a community.

This 2.0 tribe that we are building in Toronto is growing with intensity. ‘Interdependence’ is one of our foundational principles. The special thing about the tribe of presenters this year is that they deeply understand the benefits that stem from mutual respect and teamwork. For an industry to break free from the shackles of monetary gain and become a community that upholds virtuous gains, that is the 2.0 higher purpose.

Even though we are just beginning, I could not imagine this journey without one of its original tribe members, Rachelle Wintzen.
