Owen Sound has a perennial Provincial Strong Woman Champion!
Kristen Thomas, of Owen Sound Fitness & Training, is Ontario’s strongest woman for the 2nd year in a row.
Placing first in the women’s heavyweight division (and overall) at the CAASA Strongman/Woman Ontario Championships for the 2nd year in a row, Kristen has earned herself an invite to compete with the some of the pros at the first ever Canada’s Strongest Woman 2018, September 15-16 in Plantagenet, Ontario and qualified to compete at the CAASA National Championships on Sept 22 in Waterloo, Quebec to earn herself a Pro Strongwoman card and an invitation to the 2019 Arnold Classic!

Aside from competing, Kristen also runs a successful online personal training and nutrition coaching business and will soon be hired on at Owen Sound Fitness & Training as their 4th personal trainer, specializing in weight loss and strength training.

“I am 26 years old, and a single mother of 2. I started into fitness after having my second child to, like most other moms, lose the extra pregnancy weight. I ended up falling in love with the process and lifting, and from then decided to start testing my body and pushing my own limits to see what I was capable of. Weightloss was my main objective, and now it’s to be the best version of myself that I can be, and helping others do the same. Strength athletics has opened up a whole new world to me that I never thought possible, and I can’t wait to see what I can bring to the table at CSW and the CAASA National Championships this year.”
