    Valentine Payne Personal trainer at 61 years old.

    in Blogs

    Valentine Payne Personal trainer

    What started out at age 16, with a couple of friends at a local “backyard” gym in Barbados quickly developed into a life-time PASSION. Through trial and error, continued training, and better eating, Valentine started to feel better overall and it wasn’t long until this newly discovered passion became fun. Valentine came to Canada in 1976 and watched his first bodybuilding show in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1983. Valentine entered his first bodybuilding competition one year later in 1984 where he placed 3rd in the middleweight category for Mr. Manitoba.

    Throughout my life, I have read, experienced, and spoken to many people about health and fitness. Each story, each trial, and each triumph have all had an impact on me both personally and professionally, yet one of my top motivators for my achievements and continued success is the well-known health and fitness guru, Jack LaLanne. LaLanne is an American fitness, exercise, and nutritional expert, celebrity, lecturer, and motivational speaker who is widely referred to as “The Godfather of Fitness”.  LaLanne gained worldwide recognition for his success as a chiropractor and bodybuilder and for his phenomenal acts of strength and endurance.  Even after his passing in 2011,  Jack LaLanne continues to inspire me.

    “Anything in life is possible and YOU can make it happen.” – Jack LaLanne
