Fiona Harris Fitness

Biography

FionaabsMy name is Fiona Harris and I am one of Canada’s top IFBB Fitness Professionals! 

Athletics and fitness have always been a huge part of my life.  From a very young age, I was involved in tonnes of sports.  Gymnastics, soccer, track and field … I loved it all!  If it involved competition, I could be found at the center of it.  Through it all though,  gymnastics was always my passion.  I was a competitive gymnast for 11 years, training up to 24 hours a week.  It meant a lot of sacrifices to dedicate that much time to my training, but I loved every minute of it.  Gymnastics taught me self-discipline, focus and commitment.  My passion for a healthy lifestyle continued into university, where I developed a love for weight training.  This paired perfectly with my educational focus on human physiology, biomechanics and nutrition.  I took my education one step further to receive extensive instruction and certifications in personal training, including CanFit Pro, CPAFLA and PFLC.  Following graduation, I started my career in the pharmaceutical sales industry.

After years of training myself in the gym, I went in search of a new challenge and reached out to a good friend to become my coach.  Joining up with her team of competitors and finding a renewed focus,  I dieted and trained extremely hard and competed for the very first time in November 2010.  My goal was simple - overcome my fears, step on stage and display all my hard work. Never once did I think I would walk away with a first place trophy.  And that was it – one show and I was hooked!  The competitive fire was relit inside me and has been burning ever since.  A year and half after first stepping on stage, I achieved what every woman in my sport dreams of – my IFBB Pro Card and the opportunity to compete amongst the best fitness athletes in the world!  Within my first year as an IFBB Pro, I will have the opportunity to step on stage at both the prestigious Olympia and Arnold Europe.  There is no higher competitive platform for a fitness athlete and I could not be more thrilled or honored to be a part of these events!  As a competitor, you need to continually re-evaluate your goals and push yourself to higher limits.  My journey as an IFBB Fitness Pro has only begun.  The sky is the limit!  With hard work and dedication, I know the best is yet to come for me.  I will train harder and push myself further than ever before to excel and be the best athlete I can be.

But competing is only one aspect of my fitness life.  I love to share all that I have learned over my years of training to help others achieve a healthy lifestyle and the body they have always dreamed of.  I take pride in helping my clients surpass their personal expectations and achieve a level of health and fitness they never thought possible.  Whether one is looking to lose weight and get back in shape or get ready for their next fitness competition, I have to knowledge and expertise to help them achieve their goals.

In the fitness industry, there are many personal sacrifices that come with a passion for competing.  I am lucky to have the love and support of my husband, family and friends.  Without their encouragement and the guidance of my coaches, I know I would never have been able to achieve the successes I have to this point.  Knowing I have so many people in my life that support my dreams is what helps to make it all possible.  I am truly loving life and wouldn’t change a thing. 

I live my life with one simple motto - “No Regrets”!!!!!
