Fitness Anywhere is a family-run Ottawa business that changes lives around the world, and defies the notion that getting fit can only happen within the four walls of a gym. Founded by Kathy Robiatille in 2005 in Paris France, she moved the business to Ottawa in 2010. It is now owned and operated by her and husband, celebrity trainer and nutritionist Andrew Judson. This private personal training studio in the heart of downtown
Ottawa, just steps from Parliament, also sends their expertise around the world with their customized, Online Personal Training and Nutritional Meal Planning. The goal is not
only to see each individual to their own potential, but also to educate about the ways that regular exercise and healthy eating habits can be incorporated into people’s lives no matter what equipment they have. Whether you are training with them one on one in
the studio, taking part in one of their group fitness classes, or accessing your personalized training program online by phone or computer, motivation, personalization and education are what sets them apart from the rest.

Fitness is not a trend or a phase. It is a lifestyle, and a conscious choice to trade old bad habits for new ones. Everyone has bad days in training, and “fall off the horse” so to speak. If you’re ready for those inevitable ”falls,” you’re better able to recover and “get back on the horse” to continue on the road to success. Achievements in your health and fitness must use the same principles as running a business, learning a language, or raising a family; organization, diligence, discipline and enjoyment. You must have all four to achieve success and fulfillment in your accomplishments.

Aidian THomas – BodyCoach/Personal Trainer/Bio Signature Specialist
Aidian performs all of our Biosignature Hormonal Assessments, a method developed by world-renowned researcher and strength coach, Charles Poliquin. It is based on the premise that where the body stores body fat is a reflection of its hormonal profile. Put simply, where you store your fat determines what hormones are imbalanced. Hormones are chemical messengers that elicit certain processes within the human body. Some of these processes include increase/decrease metabolism, store/burn fat, build/breakdown lean muscle as well as many other health factors. Often times, people attempt to change their body and begin with good intention and work hard but to no avail. They fail to see results for their hard fought efforts and soon become frustrated and quit.The Biosignature Hormonal Assessment takes the guesswork out of the equation and within an hour, we know what the most effective and most efficient course of action is for that individual. With this personalized information in hand, we eliminate more than three months of guesswork. The end result: Results appear faster with no wasted effort. Aidian will perform
the 12 site skinfold testing with lab tests that measure hormonal levels through blood and saliva samples. With thousands of tests performed and backed with lab work, to show that specific sites on the body correlate to specific hormonal imbalances.

Mark Crossman – Personal Trainer, Muay Thai Instructor
Mark Crossman has been training and competing in fitness and sport his whole life. Starting at a young age Mark was introduced to professional trainers to progress his hockey career through plyometrics, circuits, and weight training. This is where Mark realized his passion for pushing the limits in fitness. This passion developed into some of the most intensive and rigorous training he has experienced yet, a sport called Muay Thai. Mark decided to head to Thailand where the sport originated to learn and live the life of Thai boxing. On his return, Mark realized that teaching and coaching was something he was naturally good at and has since devoted many hours to cultivating his approach. With a broad spectrum of clients, from individuals trying to make everyday life easier to athletes with sport specific goals, Mark can cater to anyone and everyone looking to push the boundaries of their current fitness regime. Although his Muay Thai background does influence much of his fitness approach, the type of training he can offer is accessible to all levels and fitness backgrounds. Mark is a certified personal trainer who brings a lot to the table because of his own unique fitness background which always placed an emphasis on functional and dynamic movement. He is excited to bring another dimension to the already progressive and hardcore work being done at Fitness Anywhere!
