Crystal Kirby-Peloquin

Owner

At a young age, I learned that fitness and food are inseparable. My fitness journey started at 12 with a few weights in a basement. My dad coached me with the “Rocky” soundtrack in the background, and he made protein shakes when we were done. I learned what it felt like to be strong, and I’ve been in love with fitness ever since. Track and field, yoga, basketball, triathlons, weightlifting, bodybuilding, cycling and CrossFit-I loved all of it. And with every day of training, I learned more about how to eat to accomplish my goals.

In 2009, my husband and I started coaching fitness boot camps, and in 2010 we started CrossFit 204 in Winnipeg. By 2015, I knew a lot about fitness but less about food, so I dedicated myself to learning about the other half of equation.

In 2016 I started 204 Lifestyle and added a registered dietitian to our staff so we could advise clients on nutrition and help them reach their goals faster. Now, we combine diet and exercise to produce not just fitness but health. And the results are dramatic. We’ve seen people change their bodies and their lives, whether they want to lose weight, gain muscle, compete in an event or just feel good about themselves. We’ve helped people lose more than 100 lb., we’ve helped people do a pull-up for the first time, and we’ve helped people build limitless confidence in themselves.

We’ve done all of that without harsh, restrictive, crash diets. Instead, we teach people how to create habits that can be sustained forever. Not a diet-a lifestyle.

In June 2020, we moved to Kenora, Ontario, and we decided to offer more specialized services to a small group of people who want to see amazing results. We offer online coaching, and we operate a small boutique gym, creating customized workouts people can do at home within their space and with their available equipment. We provide the personalization, accountability and motivation that are lacking from do-it-yourself fitness programs.

With a small number of clients, we’re in constant contact to make sure they get results. We’re creating relationships. We support that training with nutrition services so clients get excellent results. They create healthy habits to fuel their training, and they learn how to eat all the foods they love as part of a healthy plan. We’re coaching people to use food and fitness to create the lives they want to live, and we’re loving every minute of it.
