“I’m so glad I had the opportunity to work with France. She really has helped to create a meal plan for me that is tailored to my health needs. She’s been supportive and so flexible. As a Mom of two very young boys, finding the time to eat right is so important and I’m so excited about my journey to even better eating:)”
“I have known France for many years, as a colleague and a friend. She is one of the most caring people I have ever known. Level headed, compassionate, and full of energy. She never backs down from a challenge, yet always knows when to set limits, in order to maintain balance in her personal and professional life. Her family is everything to her, and her friends and clients come in at a close second. I have counted on her for support in my personal life, with regards to my health, and in professional ventures. She has always been there for me, as she is for so many others, and I trust her wholeheartedly. A better coach will be hard to find…..”
“France Paolozzi has been an inspiration in my fitness and life journey for several years. It began as I took her sports training classes and evolved, as she became my mentor in a fitness program we both had a passion for. France spent extra time with me and others that she also mentored, showing us how to be more efficient coaches and role models for our group fitness program. I began to see her dedication to a healthier way of life was a constant in her life, that she strives for betterment of herself and takes joy in sharing the “how’s” of her discoveries with others. She helped motivate me to try new sports and with that I’ve been amazed with what my mind and body are capable of! I’ve signed up for an Ironman 70.3! Thanks France Paolozzi!”
“After 5 years of France’s Saturday morning “Boot Camp” I can say when getting up early was the last thing on any list I ever had. Never has one Fitness Instructor endeared herself to more people committed to exercise. If you find someone who can dispense more Self Satisfying-Positive Energy while ensuring an oversold class, text me first!”
“France is the most inspiring fitness instructor I have ever encountered. She’s knowledgeable, fun and extremely motivating. She pushes you to your limits and helps you achieve your goals. France truly is one in a million!”
“I met France at a 6 week “boot camp” for early 6 am. She believes that all is possible and has given me a new health journey – when I want to give up – I just think of France’s dedication to health and fitness for all”.
One of the things I enjoyed most about working with France is how approachable she is. I had so many questions and needed a lot of clarification but never once did I feel like I was putting her out or asking too many questions. She took the time to really ensure that I understood the information she was providing me and was so eager to help that it made the whole process far less intimidating than I thought it would be. She also made it realistic for my lifestyle. As a daycare provider, photographer and mother of a three year old I don’t have hours to spend prepping and researching meals and often need to eat on the go but France was able to create a plan that worked with my hectic lifestyle while still ensuring the highest level of quality with my health concerns in mind. France is patient, knowledgable, kind and really does go above and beyond for her clients. I am so lucky to have found her!
I look forward to continuing working with France!
I met France when I was presenting a course and she was a student. There were over 90 people attending and France stood out from the crowd because of her positive attitude and resilience under pressure. Our paths crossed again when I was recruiting master trainers for one of the programs I developed. Someone put her name forward and, remembering my first impression, I immediately knew she would be perfect. And she was. France is that rare mixture of creativity and professionalism that is invaluable to a program director. She does what she promises, on time and at a high level. As a Health and Fitness Coach, you could ask for no one better.

“France is one of my most amazing friends. She is real and simple and I admire her for her strength, courage and attitude. There is nothing that she cannot do or accomplish, no challenge is ever too big and each challenge that comes her way is always conquered with pride and dignity. She is a very enthusiastic, positive and passionate person.
When France asked me to write something for her, I was thrilled and honoured.
I have known France for many years and in those years I have learned so much and have come to respect her a great deal. I find France to be so very motivating and inspirational, she is a wonderful role model whom I look up to. She has accomplished so much in her life. At one point she had so many things on her already overflowing plate that I even had doubts that it could all be done….She managed to juggle being a mother of two young boys, teaching 3-4 times a week, training for marathons, and going back to school full time…She did all this and all the time was happy and remained cheerful. Through much perseverance, hard work and dedication, and making some important decisions, that plate became empty. Every challenge and adventure that she took on were all conquered. I am so very proud of France and all that she has accomplished. France sets very specific goals and does not stop or quit until they are fulfilled.
I met France through the gym, it was my first group fitness class, I saw her on that stage, and thought to myself…WOW. This is an amazing person. This came so naturally to her. She made exercising fun.
Getting up early on a Saturday morning was something to look forward to. She pushed us all to our limits, making sure we all worked hard and got the most of our workout. She made us believe inourselves, kept encouraging us, nd kept reminding us that we could do it. She believed in us, had faith in us. She took us to places we thought we could never go. She made us stronger and healthier. But exercise was just a small part of this, she also taught us that there are so many other aspects in life, eating healthy and how to do things the simple way and work with what we have, we do not need fancy clothes fancy gym equipment of fancy foods. She shows us to work with what we have and make the most of it, because everyone is different and making it work with what we have and what we were born with is the best way….work with what you got…… I have such admiration for France. She has inspired me, it is a true pleasure to know her, she is so knowledgeable and so very unique. She is very passionate in what she believes in, and it is this passion that drives her to become better, motivating and inspiring those who come across her path. I am very fortunate and lucky to have France in my life and one that I can call a true friend…….”
“I have had the pleasure of knowing France for many years in capacity of fitness instructor, nutritionist and friend.
In her capacity of fitness instructor France is world class. She was very motivating and inspiring and delivered choreography in a fun and powerful manner. But I think what everyone will agree with is how approachable and caring she is. She takes an interest in people and their lives. She helps participants in achieving goals and inspires them to keep working hard.
When France asks “how are you”, she truly means it and doesn’t say it in passing! Her warmth and huge heart makes everyone feel at ease and when talking to France you know she is taking an sincere interest in YOU!
What is most impressive about France is the fact that she sets amazing goals for herself while being what no one can deny is “SUPER MOM”! Her training schedules are around her family time, even that means at 6am. Her goals and dream are BIG and what I love is being able to following her training/nutrition on social media. This allows people such as myself to say.. “If France can do it, I should try to set a goal and do it too”. Her commitment to good health and nutrition is unparalleled, and the fact that she shares recipes, nutritional advice and training tips is a testament to her wanting to help improve and add to the life of others. Even when she goes out for a long run she will invite people to join her for the entire run or just a piece to ensure that her offer is inclusive to ALL!
As a friend she is beyond supportive and encouraging in aspirations and goals, be it big or small.
France is a role model as a parent, athlete and mentor. If everyone could be like her this world would be a better and healthier place.”
“I was fortunate enough to meet France Paolozzi a number of years ago. I was a regular attendee of a number of Goodlife Fitness’ group exercise classes and France was a BodyPump instructor. It was immediately clear that France was one of the best instructors in the city. She developed an individual rapport with the many regulars in her extremely popular classes, getting to know many of us on a first name basis. She structured her classes in a way that beginners felt comfortable and were able to learn proper, safe technique while challenging more advanced class members. Her high level of physical fitness is motivating, combined with her wild enthusiasm for a variety of fitness activities like long distance running, biking, hiking, etc. More recently France has shared her expertise in the field of nutrition which has helped me and my family make more informed choices in terms of the foods we eat. I highly recommend that anyone looking to increase their overall wellness, from either a fitness or nutritional point of view, work closely with France.”
