Welcome to WOWfit! I am passionate about empowering women to look and feel their best and my methods work. I am committed to offering the highest level of women's fitness weight loss in Kanata. I am a Personal Trainer nutrition coach in Kanata and I am a real woman like you, I have 3 children and I'm no spring chicken :) 

I love fitness of all kinds now, but the journey has not been easy! I am a triathlete (Montreal Esprit Sprint Triathlon 3rd 2017, Xterra Off-Road Triathlon Lake Placid NY Sprint 2nd Woman Overall 2011, Ottawa River Triathlon Sprint 1st in category 2011), Spartan racer (Spartan Sprint Ottawa 2013 4th Overall Woman, Spartan Sprint Killington 3rd Overall Woman), hockey and volleyball player (just for fun!) and all-around fitness-lover but I haven't always enjoyed fitness!

Having children changed my body. Sick, high-risk pregnancies and joint pain that remained long after my three children were born made participating in sports and fitness difficult and painful. After my third pregnancy I was tired and sore, out of shape and feeling bad about myself.  One day I was sitting on the couch eating crackers straight out of the box and I suddenly looked at what I was eating and thought, "What am I doing?" In that moment I decided I'd had enough with excuses. I dedicated myself to healing my body and becoming lean and strong.  

In my fitness journey I discovered 4 keys to health and fitness success. I set goals and achieved them.  I felt so amazing that I couldn't keep this to myself! I dedicated myself to training other women to achieve the same kind of results I had.  Health is the greatest wealth and I believe that every woman deserves to look and feel WOW!  So I created WOWfit - Women's Only Wholebody Fitness. My vision is to empower women of all fitness levels to greater levels of fitness in a positive community of women. For women's searching for fitness weight loss in Stittsville, Kanata, Carp and west Ottawa. And for those who love to be fit!

Every day is a new beginning, an opportunity to get stronger, faster, fitter and leaner. You cannot put a price on good health and feeling great about who you are. Give yourself the gift of having a personal trainer at a fraction of the cost by joining WOWfit. We are 100% committed to WOWfit being fun and effective in helping you reach your fitness goals. Join today and start feeling WOW!​


Dianne Tremblay - Elite Trainer, Learn-to-Run Coach

BSc, PTS CanFitPro Fitness Kickboxing Canada Level 1

Dianne Coaches Tuesday and Thursday 6am

WOWFIT has taken my fitness to new heights and built in me a passion and confidence to pursue a dream - to empower other women be fit, active and healthy! I love creating an atmosphere that motivates and empowers women. I thrive on helping women realize their true potential and capabilities. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than bringing out the best in each and every woman I train, in a fun-filled, safe environment.

I have loved the outdoors, health and fitness from an early age. I have been a figure skater, played many team sports, been an avid golfer, runner, kayaked on the Masters National Team, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mt. Aconcagua (Argentina), Machu Picchu (Peru).....

My husband and I have three wonderful daughters to whom we are teaching the importance of health through our lifestyle. I believe health is vital to living a life of true joy and abundance.


Emily Darling, Elite Trainer

PTS CanFitPro Fitness Kickboxing Canada Level 1 & 2

Emily coaches all classes as needed when Jackie or Dianne are away

I joined WOWFIT to get whole-body strong! Growing up I was always a little "small" and as an adult I didn't want to be the "weak one" any more!  Since joining over 2 years ago I've completed a Spartan Super, a Tri-Obstaclon (mountain bike, lake swim, trail run obstacle course) and have even taken up wakeboarding! Nothing compares to the feeling of being able to take on a challenge you never thought you could do. Knowing that you will not only complete it – but you will complete it with everything you have because your body and mind have trained for it. That is what WOWFIT has done for me and what I hope it can do for other women.   I love training women and coaching them to achieve their best. I love the positive energy and fun of our training. The inspiration that each woman brings to our workouts is contagious and sets off a domino effect – inspiring others to join, to set goals, accomplish those goals and then set new and more challenging goals you never thought you could do before.  We all have different goals but the foundation is based on health and getting to enjoy everyday life a little bit more. My favourite part of seeing women achieve their goals is the smiles – women who are happy, healthy and want nothing less than that for those around them.  I love the friendships I've made at WOWFIT and I can't wait to see what the future holds!


Kyla McGuire - Deep Stretch Yoga Instructor

Santoga Yoga Certification 2015

Kyla teaches our Saturday Deep Stretch Classes

I love yoga and I am so passionate about sharing it with others!  Through my many years of personal practice and now through teaching, I have experienced for myself and witnessed in others, how yoga can strengthen the body, calm the mind, and deepen our connection with ourselves and others. 

In a life that’s busy with athletic children, a full time job, and all the other responsibilities we all have, exercise is a way for me to make time for myself and take care of myself. The combination of high intensity workouts and a deep yoga stretch at WOWfit gives my body everything it needs to feel balanced and fantastic. I sleep better, eat better, work better, play better and love better. ❤️

My teaching style is light hearted and fun, and I welcome all women in a completely non-judgemental environment at WOWfit. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or have never tried this yoga thing before, I can’t wait to share my love of yoga with you and stretch out those muscles!
