IN Run Crew: Mathieu Chantelois

Meet IN Run Crew member Mathieu Chantelois…
Pride Toronto’s Executive Director Mathieu Chantelois has a fitness motto: “Work hard. Play hard. Cleanse. Repeat.” Chantelois needs all the stamina he can muster to steer Canada’s powerful LGBT organization through sometimes challenging waters. The journalist and long-time TV personality knows fitness is a year-round commitment.
Unfortunately, hibernating will not help me stay in shape, so I try to get outside as much as I can. Like anyone, though, I find it hard to get out of bed to hit the gym when it’s dark in the morning. So I try to tuck in earlier at night and go from tired to inspired. I also go big on water and veggies.
My couch—I feel so guilty sitting down without exercising first. I try not to give in to my sofa until I’ve completed my workout of the day. In a previous life, I was an entertainment reporter, and Matthew McConaughey told me once that his only fitness rule was to break a sweat daily. Since then, I try to
do the same, whether it’s a workout, a hot yoga or a CrossFit session.
Vivian Greene wrote, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” I couldn’t agree more.
