My name is Dale Shostak. I'm 45 years young and have been happily together/married to my high school sweetheart for over 28 years! I say this every year, but this is the best year of my life. I've allowed myself to just get out of my way, and go with the universal flow. My passions are all things fitness and getting back to the way we ate/viewed food. I'm a huge advocate for non-GMO, non-processed food as I believe we are what we eat and can't be at our optimal health with chemical laden "phood"! I bring this belief to every client I train or counsel nutritionally.
PHAT Camp is a huge reason I AM who I AM today. In 2008 and every year after, I have attended these 3 day weekends filled with funny, serious, cry-inducing, motivating talks and kick butt workouts. I was already into fitness but was just going through the motion of living, with no real passion or direction. That first camp I went to, two things specifically resonated with me! First, "if you're not doing what you love, you can't be doing it!" and second "I remember all your faces and every year I see some ladies that never change their lives for the better." It took a few days, after camp, to hit home that I had to take necessary, scary steps to start doing what I loved. I told my husband that we had to start the process of selling our business because I just couldn't do it anymore. It took over a year but we did sell it and I've never regretted it as it freed both of us. I also said to myself that I would never be the one that never changed and every year I've continued my body/mind transformation.
What changed my life for the better has come full circle for me. I am honoured to be asked to be the Calgary PHAT camp coordinator. I AM nothing without the people I have chosen to surround myself with...my loving supportive husband and my family and friends. I'm super-stoked to have Nicole, Maureen and all involved with this life-changing organization be included in that group! Dale
