Marie-Annick Courtier, Coach

Marie developed her interest in health, personal growth and coaching from a very young age. As a National and European Table Tennis Champion, she quickly recognized the importance of a healthy body and mind in order to maximize performance. To this day, she recognizes the crucial roles that some of her coaches played in her sport accomplishments but also in the way she ended up living her life. Her life mission is to make a difference in the life of others. She treasures all she has learned from 35 years of coaching and thankful for the trust her clients have shown her. From the sport and Culinary industries to the scientific and medical communities, she has designed and incremented numerous educational tools to optimize performance and well-being of many. Because of her unique ability to feel, listen, understand, inspire, empower and setting achievable goals with her clients, Marie has developed an impressive track record of successful stories. She created Chef Marie Academy, a company she started in 2000, to complement her coaching mission and promote healthy eating.
