The Struggle is Real.

We know it's real. Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re a seasoned veteran, there are always little voices in the back of your head trying to help or hinder you. Ignore the one that says “It’s too hard”, and find the one that says “I can make this happen.” If you don’t hear that voice, create it. It’s your mind, your body, and your life. All you have to do is #makeithappen.

You’re Not Alone.

We asked Canadians and some of our incredible GoodLife members to tell us about their personal struggle on their own path to living a good life. We got all kinds of answers, from all kinds of different people across the country. The one common thread? Every single one of them overcame whatever was in their way. Learn how other Canadians just like you, took the step, and made it happen.

How Joel Created His New Life.

Somebody turned to me very calmly, and said ‘Mr. West, you are having a heart attack.’” That was Joel’s snap moment. He was scared, and he was regretful about how he had lived his life. He knew he had to make a change, but it always felt so hard- so far away. Learn how he turned that health scare into the best thing that ever happened to him. Now Joel lives a healthy, happy lifestyle thanks to the people that love him, and the places he turned it all around.
