Joelle Collette, WBFF Pro Fitness Model

After being in a severe car accident at the age of 18, Joelle’s life changed drastically; she had a brain injury and was in a coma for 3 days. She had to re-learn to walk and talk through months of physiotherapy and speech therapy. She had self-esteem issues and was depressed because of how her life had changed, not knowing if she would ever recover 100%.

She decided she had to prove to herself and others that she could do something if she put her mind to it. She decided to enter in a local figure and bodybuilding competition.

After training for only 3 months she placed third at her very first competition. From that point on she was hooked on the health and fitness lifestyle.

She would go on to compete in a total of 13 fitness competitions all across North America. She ended up winning her pro card and is one of the top female fitness models to ever come out of Canada.

She is a former Magnum supplements sponsored athlete and has been appeared in numerous health and fitness magazines and has been featured in articles on bodybuilding.com.

Her magnetic personality combined with her knowledge, experience, and a genuine interest in helping people achieve their health and fitness goals are reasons why she is a client favourite.

Podaima Performance is excited and proud to offer training by someone of Joelle’s caliber.  It is extremely rare to be able to train with someone that has accomplished so much in the fitness world.

Joelle is currently finishing her Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) certification through the National Strength And Conditioning Association (NSCA).
