Amanda Nadeau

My name is Amanda Nadeau, and I am a lover of the outdoors and all things fitness related. I grew up playing all sorts of sports, and was competitive in basketball and volleyball. As I got older, I transitioned to more individual sports including triathlon, running, and Crossfit. A few years ago I found obstacle course racing and was hooked. It combines some of my favourite things: running, carrying heavy objects, swinging on rigs, and getting muddy. I now compete as a professional OCR racer and represent Canada in races all over the world. Last year I attended an event that had 100 obstacles over the course of 15km! That prompted me to take increasing my grip strength seriously, which is when I decided to take up bouldering. It is so different from anything else, and it provides such a mental challenge as well as physical that it never gets boring. The atmosphere at Bolder is so welcoming, and all the people are so friendly and helpful that I already feel as if I am part of an awesome new family.
When I’m not working out, I can be found hanging out with my pup Mowgli, getting lost in the mountains, or eating spoonfuls of peanut butter straight from the jar.
Live outside of your comfort zone. šŸ˜€
