Toronto : Queen St. W.

Marek Dziedzic

For years, Marek has been interested in health, fitness, nutrition, and adventure. His goal has been to help people navigate the endless resources available for these topics and filter through the noise. At the start of 2012, Marek created Active Yam: the opposite of a couch potato. The aim was to provide a resource for people interested in activities around the Toronto area, organizing meet ups, trainings, and outdoor activities.

Marek’s passion is overcoming new challenges. His summers are filled with running various obstacle and cross country races while his winters are filled with skiing and travel. He believes that anyone can be fit and healthy. You do not have to be a professional athlete to achieve greatness. Even typical 9 to 5ers can be extremely competitive with the right motivation and knowledge – that is what Active Yam looks to offer.
