Body by Bennett is the product of what Co-founder and President Simon Bennett considers “validation of a lot of hard work put forth for many years.” His premier professional health and wellness training facility offers innovative sports conditioning and athletic development programs for professional athletes, as well as general population programs.
Bennett started climbing the industry ladder as a personal trainer, before gradually becoming an “educator, presenter, fitness content creator, strength coach, businessman, and marketer.” With a healthy dose of grit and determination, that ladder led Simon all the way up to a job he calls “a dream come true”: the Director of High Performance for the Edmonton Oilers.
But Bennett’s ambitions don’t end with the Oilers. His drive to experience “new horizons and challenges” gains momentum each year, as he continues to set a broad range of personal goals, from physical challenges to industry contributions and business growth; and he takes every opportunity he can to help others achieve their goals, too. He says, “My challenges today revolve around finding our role as a company in contributing to our community and creating opportunities for staff to make their personal mark as fitness professionals.”
Bennett’s biggest takeaway as a Lululemon ambassador has been learning how to support his team. From employee goal setting and consistent messaging to personal development and community contribution, Simon says his partnership with Lulu has been “one of the most significant contributions to [his] life.”
He doesn’t hesitate to include his wife and three girls among those contributions, either. On the rare occasion that Simon has a day off —when he’s not training with or cheering for the Edmonton Oilers—you’ll find him with the family, playing hockey, golfing, mountain biking, skiing, or snowboarding.
Thanks Simon. Go team go!
