Hi, my name is Meagan Duhamel.
I am a 2-Time World Champion Figure Skater, Olympic Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medalist, and 7-time Canadian National Champion in pairs skating with my skating partner Eric Radford.
Away from the ice, I am an animal lover, vegan, yogi, and wife to renowned figure skating coach Bruno Marcotte. I studied Holistic Nutrition with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and am currently finishing a Holistic Nutrition Program specializing in Sports and Fitness with Alive Academy. My passion for Figure Skating has been part of my life since I was 3 years old, but more recently I discovered a new passion: Healthy Living.
Many people see me today as fit, energetic, strong, active, and healthy, and would be surprised to learn that this wasn’t always the case. My wellness journey had very humble beginnings. 8 years ago I was “out of shape” (under elite figure skater standards) and unhealthy. I lacked any nutrition knowledge, and quite honestly didn’t know where to find it.
Veganism peaked my curiosity as something new, clean and outside of the mainstream.
I bought endless books and did research like crazy as I dove into this new diet. Suddenly, I felt my body changing. I lost weight, my skin was glowing, my energy levels were on the rise and I woke up every morning feeling rested and ready to tackle the new day ahead. I also noticed changes inside of me; my patience and compassion started growing. I was truly hooked. This wasn’t just a diet for me, it was a style of living.
Knowing the benefits I was experiencing already with my vegan diet, I decided I wanted to feel even better and healthier. I studied for 2 years with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and increased my knowledge about the whole body. What I learned has helped me on my journey to reach my maximum potential. Through my studies, I learned about Ayurveda, Sports Nutrition, Healing the Mind, Body and Soul, Vitamins and Minerals and Healing with Food.
As a competitive Figure Skater, I’ve had many amazing experiences, having competed at the 2014 & 2018 Olympic Winter Games and countless international competitions worldwide. During the 2014/2015 skating season, my partner Eric Radford and I went undefeated in competition! This achievement culminated with winning the World Championship! I credit so much of my achievements to my vegan lifestyle.
Now, I wish to open up my world to you.
Through Lutz of Greens I will share my training and wellness lifestyle with you. But most importantly, I want to inspire you, motivate you and help you to live a long, strong, and healthy life, whatever your aspirations are.
