Optimize Your Health

with Madeleine Belanger

 

Madeleine, a retired Registered Nurse, mother of two, and grandmother of 3, struggled with her weight most of her life, once weighed 216 pounds. She went through a permanent lifestyle change, both mentally and physically which allowed her to lose 100 pounds. She was featured in Richard Simmons’s magazine as the Cinderella Story in 1997, even meeting him in 2011! This was then broadcasted on the Hamilton News! She strived to become a fitness athlete and trainer to help others to regain, gain or maintain health, like herself. Madeleine also succeeded as a competitive runner and tri-athlete, where she became a first and second place medalist for the decade of 2000-2010. In addition, with her passion and experience in fitness, she excelled (over the course of 18+ years) taking various certifications listed below.

Currently, during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic she pursued Health Care for our vulnerable Seniors then followed with online virtual training and Thai yoga massage, researching health, nutrition along with writing her memoir/crafts/music. Madeleine is always doing her best to motivate others to be active, having a positive outlook on life, self and others, but most of all to never give up!
