Here’s what Tanis had to share with us!


1. Briefly share with us your background (Education, Interests, etc.)?

I grew up as a competitive gymnast, I began coaching in 1995 and continue to coach at a competitive level. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from the University of Calgary and went on to complete my Personal Fitness Trainer Certificate from Mount Royal University afterwards.

I worked as a personal trainer alongside my coaching for several years, and then a year after my first son was born I started my own fitness business TanisFit Inc. where I was able to combine gymnastics, fitness, nutrition, and training under one umbrella.

I am currently on maternity leave after having my second son and am in the process of completing my Life Coaching certification to further enhance the programs that I offer.

2. Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Fitness Competitor?

I have always been a huge fan of Jen Hendershott as a competitor. I also love the work of Tanji Johnson and Myriam Capes. Fitness in the IFBB is always evolving and there’s so much anticipation for me to see what people come up with for themes and routines, all whilst still training for amazing physiques.

3. What competitions have you made appearances in? From these, what were your placements (titles won)?

I have competed since 2002 with the CBBF and my provincial federation the ABBA. Prior to winning my IFBB Pro Card in 2010, my best placing on a National level was at the CBBF Fitness Nationals in 2006 when I was 3rd.

I competed at the 2010 CBBF Natural Physique Championships winning the Fitness Overall title and becoming an IFBB Pro Fitness competitior.

4. When is your next upcoming show? What will be your competing class?

My second son was born in April 2011 and I am planning to make my Pro debut in April 2012. Assuming the New York Pro includes fitness in their show at this time (show dates have not been released yet) I would like New York to be my first show as a Pro.

5. Where can fans find out more about you (website, published magazines, etc.)?

My web site is www.TanisFit.com also find me on twitter http://twitter.com/tanisfit and my blog where I do weekly fitness updates at http://tanisfit.wordpress.com/
