Here is a little background about Cameron and Michelle Biffart, the new owners of LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic Kelowna:
Cameron spent the past 25 years owning and operating a boutique employee-benefits business in the Lower Mainland, managing employee benefits for over 600 companies. One of those happened to be LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic and about six years ago Cameron told Michelle about an amazing new start-up in White Rock with an energetic and brilliant entrepreneur named Sara Hodson. Over the next few years we watched LIVE WELL’s growth and success in the community. One of LIVE WELL’s clinics also happened to be located in the same building as Cameron’s office which gave him opportunity to chat with members and hear first-hand accounts of their experiences. What was remarkable was that the feedback was never lukewarm. Members loved LIVE WELL and the most typical comment we heard was that LIVE WELL “changed my life.” So when franchising was beginning to roll out across Canada, we decided the time was also right for us to jump on board and create an opportunity for others to have the LIVE WELL experience. Our insurance business was sold off last fall and we moved to Kelowna when school let out in June.
What makes us passionate about this business are the members’ stories and journeys. We both realized LIVE WELL was unique during our shadowing sessions where the members were open to share their stories and journeys. It was truly inspiring to listen and hear about their life struggles and health challenges and how learning to embrace their customized LIVE WELL programs and striving for behavioral change has affected them in such a positive and profound way. Also to hear so consistently how members enjoy the sense of community at LIVE WELL and how much they look forward to attending their session each week. The outcomes of how they feel and what they are able to achieve through consistent attendance at LIVE WELL clinics is what LIVING WELL is all about. As a couple we were drawn in as they shared how their lives had been changed through exercise.
We both enjoy being active and the outdoors. Mostly we road cycle but in the winter we enjoy heading to the mountains for a good snowshoe and climb with friends. We also enjoy running, paddleboarding and hiking. Exercise has become our social time with both friends and each other and a great de-stresser. We have also tried to instill in our kids a love of fitness, the outdoors and family time. Our favourite times are when we are able to do an outdoor activity together as a family.
We try to find the joy in small daily doses each day. There is so much to be grateful for, if we just take the time and learn to appreciate it. Spending quality time with our kids has always been the biggest highlight. Whether it’s cooking a meal with them, hiking the West Coast Trail or travelling one-on-one with them on an adventure trip. With Kelowna being such an amazing outdoor city with nature in such close proximity, we are really looking forward to Finding the Joy and exploring our new home right outside our doorstep. Our first year of marriage was spent in Kelowna and we always knew we would end up back in Kelowna someday.
