Jean-François’s Biography :
Coming from an agricultural background, Jean-François learned from a very young age that hard work was of utmost importance. As the eldest of a family of two children, he had to cope with the death of his mother as a youngster and looked up to his father, who rolled up his sleeves and provided for his family. Furthermore, he loved sports and enjoyed the physical work on the farm. Then, he discovered the strength contests.
First of all, his journey as a strong man began when he was 22. Coincidentally, the Strong Man Provincial Championship was taking place in Mont-Joli, a municipality of the Lower St. Lawrence where he lived at the time.
Without any training whatsoever, he finished 17th out of 30 athletes and did not qualify for the Final. This 6 feet 2 inches tall man weighing 220 pounds realized he had potential and that the hard work at the farm is totally different from working out. Thus, two years later, he earned his place among Quebec’s top strong men. He then decided to make every effort to become the Canadian champion.
Thanks to the thoughtful guidance of his grandfather, right until the day he died, Jean-François decided to entirely focus on his physical training in order to make his dream come true. Then, in 2011, he finally reached his goal and made his world series debut. Since that time, countless new goals have been within reach.
As of April 2013, Jean-François Caron, speaker, acquired a fitness club, along with two of his friends, in their region and transformed it so it can better reflect their philosophy: a great place where you can enjoy working out, get in shape, go beyond your limits and reach your goals (www.gymsantex-trem.com/).
Passionate about his trainer profession, Jean-François still manages his busy schedule to personally coach and train a few customers with targeted needs (multiple sclerosis, physical impairment, injuries, etc.). It is priceless for him to see people strive, improve themselves, and reach their goals.
The success of his customers and his own motivate him to work harder, even though it doesn’t always come without any pitfalls. Look how far he went to become one of the best in his discipline. For him, reaching for excellence is all about tenacity and discipline.
