LORI-ANN OWNER - LEAD TRAINER FIT IS NOT A DESTINATION, IT'S A WAY OF LIFE.

OWNER – LEAD TRAINER

Lori-Ann McLeod is the founder, owner and lead trainer of ONYX Fit. She is the co-director of Fall Fit Women’s Weekend, Spring Fit Mexico and Mighty Girls. Lori-Ann (LA as she known by her clients) is a married mother of two teenage children.

LA’s interest in fitness started as a way to improve her general health and wellness after her children were old enough to go to school full-time. Fitness quickly became a passion for Lori-Ann and she decided to make it a career achieving multiple certifications in fitness training and nutrition.

LA built ONYX Fit from the ground up. She started teaching small Pilates classes in her neighbour’s basement but quickly realized she would need more space due to an ever-growing client base. LA temporarily rented space at a local dance studio until eventually opening up her first location on Bronte Street in Milton. ONYX Fit quickly outgrew that location and moved to its current home on Main Street where she operates 2 studios in a 4800 square ft. unit.

STYLE

LA’s unique style of training is a fusion of traditional pilates moves combined with high intensity body sculpting exercises. One of the biggest keys to her success is a genuine and caring attitude towards her clients. She makes sure everyone “checks their attitudes at the door” which fosters a caring and team type of atmosphere when you enter the studio. This allows people to succeed by looking forward to their workout experience instead of dreading it. And when clients are feeling a little down they can quickly go online and check in with the ONYX Fit Family to get a little support if they need it.
