Throughout this presentation, Jimmy Sevigny will teach you how to be the master of your own destiny. Using his own personal story, he has a unique way of talking about things that will inspire you to be at your best and blossom in your everyday life. Holder of a Bachelor of Science in Physical Activity, Jimmy’s passion is truly that of physical education and, now, of giving conferences.

The strength and determinaton he has shown in his life choices, and his desire to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle make him a person who is steadfastly focused on pushing himself further to achieve his goals. Throughout his youth, Jimmy seemed to be on a path that was taking him nowhere fast—leading him even towards the ultimate failure: death.

With humour and emotion, he will share the story of how he was able to go from being morbidly obese to being a physical activity enthusiast whose central focus is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Let Jimmy share a most incredible story with you—his very own. Conference in French.
