Top 10 Power Women
“Influencing Positive Change for Women Worldwide” is the personal motto of Maureen (Mo) Hagan, whose career parallels the modern history of fitness education in Canada and beyond. Chief Operating Officer of canfitpro, Canada’s leading fitness education authority, she is the creator of Women Who Influence and a member of the board of directors of the Women in Fitness Association.
She is a fitness instructor and program director, the 2019 Canadian Fitness Industry Leader of the Year, and a group fitness instructor with GoodLife Fitness.
In the 1980s, after attending the University of Western Ontario for Physical Health Education, Hagan taught herself how to teach group fitness. While studying physiotherapy, she joined a club that later became part of GoodLife Fitness and began instructing others on how to teach fitness classes and become a licensed physiotherapist. In New Zealand as a backpacker, she found Les Mills courses and on her return became a director to oversee group fitness classes in all GoodLife clubs.
Today, she holds many awards as an educator in fitness, health and women’s empowerment. She has written and appeared in several books that challenge women to become the best versions of themselves, no matter what the circumstances.
