WANDA GUENETTE, 51

Personal trainer, international beach volleyball player, volleyball coach, co-owner of High Line Beach Volleyball (beach volleyball training school and programs)

 

Accomplishments: The last time Canada qualified a women's volleyball team for the Olympic Games -- 1996 in Atlanta -- Guenette was wearing the Maple Leaf. Shen went on to a nine-year professional indoor volleyball career in five European countries. Guenette turned her focus to beach volleyball where she has become one of the best in the world. At the World Masters Games last month at Turin, Italy, she and her beach partner, Laura Inward, won a third straight gold medal (2005, 2009, 2013). They plan to go for a fourth in 2017 at Auckland, N.Z. Training and competing with rheumatoid arthritis for the past three years, Guenette controls it with adjustments to her diet (no dairy products, no gluten) and medication. Her secret to leaping and living? "It's no secret. Just keep moving. I like feeling good and exercise is the easiest way to do that."

1. Favourite workout?

Circuit training with weights/agility/core and jumping.

 

2. Favourite workout song?

Prince is my favourite and can always pump me up. I don't have a favourite song, but I like to work out to happy house music.

 

3. Fitness tip?

Do something every day to get a sweat on for 30 minutes. And stay away from processed or fast food.

 

4. What's in your fridge?

My favourite healthy go-to meal is a white fish (usually basa) and avocado.

 

5. What's your guilty pleasure?

Dark chocolate coconut bliss. It's like ice cream but made from coconut milk.
