Paige Fernandes is the 2022-23 president of the Toronto-Leaside Rotary Club. She is a passionate advocate for wellness, mental health and fitness. At the 2022 District 7070 conference on October 14-16, she led a breakout session for the delegates on wellness based on a wellness program she designed and delivered to her workplace, a LTC and Retirement facility in Toronto.
Paige's talk included the following: 
  • A discussion on stress/burnout and the impacts on the body 
  • An overview of her background/interest in wellness & my philosophy on wellness 
  • Introduced an evidence-based model for health & wellness that was used to design her wellness program. This includes 8 dimensions of wellness (e.g. nutrition, sleep, exercise, mindfulness) 
  • Facilitated an interactive session with the group on 2 elements from the model, mindfulness and exercise  
As a personal trainer and wellness coach, Paige loves to share her knowledge and experience on physical fitness and wellness with others, especially during these challenging times.
