As the owner of her personal training company and health & fitness blog, Venesha also started a charity for women to provide food & clothing donations for shelters in her area.



HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY?

I grew up playing sports and played rugby at Ottawa University. I love being active. After college, I continued playing professional rugby and even trained with the Canadian Development Team for the Olympics!



WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR OWN PERSONAL TRAINING BUSINESS?

When I was growing up, women who lifted were judged. I wanted to change that.



WHEN DO YOU FEEL THE MOST SEXY?

In the gym, working out. I love when I feel strong.



YOU ARE BOTH POWERFUL & SEXY – DO YOU THINK THE TWO GO HAND IN HAND?

Definitely!



AS A BLACK, FEMALE BUSINESS OWNER IN TORONTO, ARE THERE SPECIFIC CHALLENGES YOU FACE COMPARED TO WHITE WOMEN OR MEN TRAINERS?

I think there are definitely some challenges but I’ve always been competitive so I take the approach of – “How far can I go?” I’m always trying to push myself further to prove myself



WHAT DOES FEMALE EMPOWERMENT MEAN TO YOU & HOW DO YOU THINK THE MOVEMENT HAS REDEFINED SEXY?

Doing whatever we want & not apologize for it. I think it means you can be anything you want to be. You can look however you want to look. There is not one definition of “sexy”. Sexy is a mindset, not just how you look.



VEA ATHLETICS IS YOUR PERSONAL TRAINING & HEALTHY LIFESTYLE BUSINESS. WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT VEA ATHLETICS?

That I’m here to work with you to be comfortable with yourself. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, gain muscle, or stay where you are and remain active – I’m here to support you in that.



WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?

I’m currently accepting new clients and I offer in person & online services/sessions. I also offer nutrition ebooks and am currently focused on our Fit Body Series.



OK, RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS. GIVE THE FIRST ANSWER THAT COMES TO MIND.

FAVORITE LA SENZA BRA?
Beyond Sexy.

FAVORITE LA SENZA PANTY COLLECTION?
Invisible thongs! I wear them all the time.

FAVORITE HOBBY WHEN YOU AREN’T WORKING OUT?
Painting & Reading

FAVORITE MUSIC?
That’s a hard one. I’d have to say Reggae.

FAVORITE FOOD?
Ahhh, I should probably say something healthy but I’m going to be honest and say Nachos! I literally have tried every restaurants’ nachos but I think I finally mastered the best nachos from home
