Meet Tenille Hoogland
Tenille Hoogland's mission is to transform how female athletes experience sport and reach life-long health and athletic excellence. Her athletic journey began as an Olympic hopeful in synchronized swimming. In her late 20s she became a professional triathlete. On the surface, her athletic career looks stellar. She represented Canada at International Triathlon Union (ITU) Pan-American Championships, long course events and at IRONMAN World Championships several times, winning numerous titles along the way. However, the method to achieve success had a tremendous cost. She trained relentlessly, unknowingly developed disordered eating and lost her period for 5 years. This led to several injuries and significant hormone challenges. Mentally, she lost joy in sport and retired from triathlon in 2013. Her struggle to find health and her athletic self spanned several years; first, she overcame 2 years of fertility challenges, learnt how to move again without pain and then to move consistently with joy. It came through deep curiosity, education, and trial and error.
This whole journey led her to create the Mindset, Nutrition, Training and Recovery Integrated Training System (MNTR-ITS). This accessible, step-by-step evidence-based system empowers female athletes to establish a foundation of health for which excellence, performance and resilience can be achieved. It works through the physiological life stages of the female athlete, from adolescents to post-menopause.
Her motto: Health is the foundation of performance.
