Unlocking a Healthy Mindset
with Matthias McKinnon
Being fit and healthy is so much more than just a hobby; it's a lifestyle! It's far too often we hear people say they want to look good and feel good but fail to put in the work to make it happen. Leading a healthier lifestyle and developing healthy habits is a choice, and it is a decision that comes with dedication and clarity. That's why we were ecstatic to catch up with a hard-working athlete and personal trainer that is passionate about creating more energy within.
Matthias Mckinnon is an entrepreneur, personal trainer, professional athlete, and motivational influencer that inspires people to be healthier to achieve their lifestyle goals. Mckinnon believes that anyone can fulfill their desires if they believe in themselves and know that success starts with the mind. When we came across the motivating and inspiring McKinnon, our first thoughts were "Hashtag Body Goals!" But one thing about our team that always amazes is we know there is still more to a story, and we were right!

Whether in our personal or professional lives, success looks different to everyone. It feels different. It sounds different. And most of all, it is the self-love, self-acceptance, belief, and satisfaction that it gives us as individuals. No two minds think of success the same, which is why we love crafting great stories from motivators and influenc
er's from all over the world. For McKinnon, it is believing in yourself, even if it's in business. McKinnon's journey started at a young age, and he has always been big on setting the bar high towards reaching his fitness goals. Although we know that health and fitness can be a hobby, it is most effective when we make healthy choices and accept where we are in the process. We must also surround ourselves with people that inspire us and push us in a positive way.
"If you want to be successful in this business or this world, you must believe in yourself before you even take a step in the path you want to take. If you are not 100% true to self, life will tear you apart."
Tell us a bit about yourself & What inspired you to start your Fitness Journey?
I am a personal trainer and athlete who loves to entertain and motivate people. I started to get involved in this industry because it was a true passion of mine and someone, I can touch people.

What has been your greatest accomplishment?
To be able to have an impact on people's lives that I have never met before because of my gift from god to do what I do every day and have fun doing it. So proud to make that accomplishment to share with people.
What makes you different from your competitors?
I love this question! I love to compete, and it brings the best out of me to see how great I can be and overcome any fear I have had in the past. It just builds you up differently to never back down from any human or maze. Competitiveness has you ready for real-life obstacles.
Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
10 years from now, I see myself in my own gym and traveling the world to host a meet and greets. Telling myself of how I grew up and never gave up on my plan. No matter how many distractions I have had in my way. I want to put my mom in a comfortable place, also with my brothers. I have the world believing in my brand!! Want to have a mentor program for the youth who don't have anyone to hold them down or to build up a strong mind.
McKinnon shared with our team that although he has faced challenges within his journey, he has learned various ways to overcome and conquer those challenges.
"I have faced many, but some that stand out to me is when I would get the mental not to challenge myself because I would be too scared to do so, but I had to find my "why" to do so. When I did that, it has been hard for anything to get in my way. Overcoming death in the family when you about to hit the biggest stand of your life, and one in a lifetime chance, must be all in and tunnel vision." -Matthias Mckinnon
We believe that in front of every inspiration is an inspiration that set the tone, which rings true for McKinnon. We learned that his mother has been a major impact on his life and has always pushed him to pursue his dreams.
