let me introduce myself. I am Michèle Levesque, a training addict. If you
want to know more about me, read these lines.
I come from Bromont,
a small village known as the capital of mountain biking and skiing. My parents
were always active and instilled a love of physical fitness in me from a young
age. I devoted myself to several sports such as gymnastics, figure skating and,
of course, biking and skiing.
I have always had an intense
temperament and am always on the lookout for a new challenge, a new obsession.
For years, I let off steam in track and field, where I progressed from the sprint
to running 30 kilometres on the road! Running was my drug, my inspiration, my
decadence, my release, until the day when I had to have surgery for knee problems.
My world fell apart and I lapsed into gloom and despair. I had lost my best friend.
passion for weights and dumbbells developed from the time I was in rehabilitation
for my knees. Aside from running, lifting weights was the only way I got satisfaction.
At first slowly, then with growing intensity. I had discovered my second obsession!
I set about being reborn and wanted to know everything about nutrition and training.
One day while leafing through magazines, I told myself that one day I would be
the person on the cover! But first I had to find a good coach to lead me to the
top. Francine Savard of Proactif lit my path. That is when a beautiful love story
was born between her and me. The passion for training!
now lived in Montreal for about ten years. I came here to study kinesiology at
the Université du Québec à Montréal and continue in
massotherapy. I have worked in this profession for five years.
the near future, I see myself on the cover page of a magazine and I plan to return
to studies in physiotherapy.
