My Story


My name is Madison Backer. I am the owner of Mind and Body by Mad Back – a fitness coaching service based out of Pinawa, Manitoba. I have always been passionate about helping others and about health and fitness so becoming a personal trainer and health educator was a natural path for me.

I own a Recreation Facility in Pinawa, built with an open space concept to accommodate 1-on-1 training, gym memberships, events, and many types of fitness classes.

I am a personal training specialist, as well as a Masters graduate with a Masters of Science in Health and Nutrition Education.

I love teaching and coaching. I love cheering others on, and having them realize how strong and amazing they truly are.

Living in a beautiful rural community is truly a blessing. I love adding elements of nature and the outdoors to my bootcamp classes. Fun and play is also really important to me. In my bootcamp classes, you will definitely see this come out quite often! Disco dance party? Biking Scavenger Hunt? Amazing Race Bootcamp? Sweaty Circuit Class? I like to add it all in!
