I’m Cat Manea

My mission in life is to empower people to achieve their ideal state of physical fitness and stay healthy for the rest of their lives. How? By adjusting their personal goals through changing the way they eat and look at food.

My love for health and fitness started when I was a teenager, out of frustration that I was a chubby kid and I didn’t know how to change that. By working out in the local gym and self-education, I re-learned everything about how to get, and stay healthy. Since the age of 20, I’ve been a competitive bodybuilder, and worked as a personal trainer, achieving great success with all my clients’ personal goals.

I am simply passionate about fitness and personal well being!

My philosophy

Over time I came to realize that nutrition is my one, true passion. And I’ve found that for most people, nutrition is actually the most difficult aspect of fitness. As such, I now focus and make it my goal to empower change in as many lives as I possibly can.

And when I am talking about lives, I include the lives of people and animals, as well as the planet we call home because everything good we receive all comes from Mother Earth.

So I’m very excited to meet you on this journey towards a long, healthy life. One without chronic disease and medication. A life with just awesome food and well being!

From Romania with Love

I was born and raised in Romania, and after graduating from University, I decided to look for a better life, so I immigrated to Canada.

After spending two years in Edmonton, I visited and fell in love with Vancouver, of course! And since 2010 I’ve made the Lower Mainland my home.
