Lisa Bergart owns her own personal training company called Dynamix Fitness. Her business provides professional in-home training for customers in the greater Toronto region. Saving busy customers a trek to their local gym, Lisa brings the experience to them. With customized workout plans that are tailored to each client’s fitness level and goals, Lisa is dedicated to helping her clients attain the results they desire. Lisa says that there is nothing better than seeing her clients reach their fitness goals and be who they have always wanted to be. Having over a decade of experience in the health and wellness industry, Lisa says she loves her job!

Typically, Lisa starts her day at the bright and early time of 6 AM in order to meet her first clients. After her morning sessions, Lisa responds to email leads and client text messages. She also takes this time to post to the company website and social media pages. Throughout the rest of the day, she drives around the city and holds training sessions. Lisa says that each day is completely difference and depends on her clients’ schedules.

Lisa received her undergraduate degree at York University in Health and Social Science. She says her degree had provided her with a strong foundation in the health profession. In addition to her undergraduate education, Lisa also received a diploma at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, becoming a registered holistic nutritionist. She also went on to attain her certification as a post-rehabilitation specialist. This allows her to offer conditioning programs for over 30 medical conditions. In addition, she is also certified as a post and pre natal exercise specialist. On top of all this, Lisa took Seneca College’s Social Media program, which helped enhance her marketing and promotion skills.

Why start her own business? Lisa had worked at several different gyms across Toronto; the last one being a private training studio. There, she gained the knowledge to create safe and effective customized training, which she needed to start her own business. Lisa was given extra motivation when two of the gymnastic teams she had been coaching received bronze medals overseas, at the Maccabiah Games in the summer of 2013. In addition to being this thrilled by this, it gave her that much more confidence in her ability to train people to reach their fitness goals.

Lisa says that the success of her business is due to her strong social media presence, as well as her strong community connections through and events with various organizations. Lisa’s business was featured at the Toronto Women’s Expo, Feel Good Women’s Expo, Cancer Recovery Foundation of Canada, and The Thornhill, Vaughan, and Aurora Festivals. Although her success has been on an upward incline, Lisa says one of the biggest challenges with owning her own business is staying up-to-date with all the current health and fitness trends.

Lisa’s advice for other young entrepreneurs who want to start their own businesses? Create a business plan and have monthly goals that excite you. Specifically for those in the health and fitness field, Lisa stresses the importance of staying current with health and fitness trends on social media. Her closing words? Follow your passions and priorities!

Sherry Panov, LifeVantage, Health & Wellness

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase this truly empowered female entrepreneur, Sherry Panov and celebrate her great sharing as our Mystery Speaker this month at our Mississauga Chapter.

When I got married, I had always dreamed of a big house, white picket fence, Money, beautiful children running around, and the occasional travelling. We decided to move to the country and I quit my job and left city life. It took some getting use to as things were slower pace in the country. We soon started a family. With little ones in tow, I stayed at home to care for the children, but also helped with our business. One day, I found out we were having twins. I was elated, but scared. With the financial strain on our family needs, we knew we needed to make a more significant impact on our finances as our family was growing. We decided to move back to the City as we hoped there would be more opportunity in jobs, so we could build on.

As life would have it, with the financial demands, our marriage didn’t seem to be working out. We ended up divorcing. Now I realized that it was all up to me. In this space, I had to battle my new title, Single Mom. Its been a struggle, I can’t count the number of times I have ÈI had to battle depression, and had to find myself, I can’t count the number of times I have fallen, but I always got back up, got stronger, realize that I am all that my kids have. I needed to overcome the stigmatism that seem to follow a single mother and rise above it. I did.

I found a job at a large Company and my mother helped me watch my little ones. Thank goodness, because it was a daily struggle to leave them every day. I worked full time, but I found that it was hard to balance work and life. I had always been exposed to business growing up, my Dad was a well-respected business man and I learned a lot from him, I thought about doing something part time. I was looking for a business that would meet my needs.

I was introduced to a business from a friend who was launching a business in the GTA. The Company LifeVantage, is publicly traded on the Nasdaq, the Products are FDA and Health Canada approved, went from 4 million to 250 million in five years and was featured on ABC as a Primetime Investigative Report. I was very intrigued. This product reduces Oxidative stress in the body by 40% in 30 days and he explained that Oxidative stress is the leading cause of disease and disfunction in the body. I had my own physical symptoms of High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and Diabetes, and I wanted to take this product for myself. After two and a half months all my physical symptoms are gone! This product worked for me!

LifeVantage also has an amazing Compensation plan! They take care of their people!

I have investigated many Companies in the past and I have realized that I wanted to find something that would stand the test of time, has a good reputation and has a product or service that is researched, positively reviewed and adds value to people and their lives. I now Endorse this Product called Protandim from LifeVantage. There are so much more that I would love to tell you about this product and this Business. If you are Business Minded and are Looking to make a great income, this is the Ultimate Side Hustle!
