BlackburnNews – Canadian Icons Speak In Sarnia


Two Canadian icons kicked-off a presentation in Sarnia today with their signature 90 second work-out.

Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod shared the highs and lows in creating BodyBreak, as part of a keynote address during Sarnia Lambton Business Week.

The duo has shown millions of Canadians how to incorporate healthy living into their daily lives.

But Johnson and McLeod told the crowd at the Dante Club, it was a long road getting to where they are now. Johnson says they were turned down by over 40 companies before they finally signed with “ParticipACTION”.

Now the pair are celebrating the 25th anniversary of BodyBreak and recently revived their company by competing on the Amazing Race Canada.

They delivered a message of staying true to your brand and the importance of giving your business 100 percent.

Sarnia Lambton Business Week continues Friday with a keynote from singer and songwriter Emm Gryner.
