Dr. Geny Augustine Chasse was born and raised in Toronto ON and always aspired to be a doctor since the age of 6. Throughout her childhood, she battled with being overweight and would often be advised by doctors to make changes without any direction or understanding of what being healthy meant or looked like. At this point she became involved in soccer and basketball, but still did not gain adequate control of her weight. By the age of 13, Geny had stints where she thought that binging and purging, and starvation was the only way she could enjoy the food she loved but maintain a fairly fit physique. The battle was uphill and constant and she was convinced that being fit and lean was completely impossible for her.
In 2012, she was accepted into an international medical school on Bonaire and had the most amazing life experience learning medicine on such a beautiful island and developing her passion for medicine in low resource settings.
In 2014, she moved to Arizona and began her internal medicine rotation with the amazing Dr. Walker. It was he who educated Geny and her other peers about the absolute detriment of sugar and the epidemic of obesity and diabetes in North America. He wanted to make a stance that being a lean machine and limiting the amount of fat tissue in the body was the key to preventing and possibly curing diabetes. He proposed entering a physique competition, and asked Geny to participate too. The 7- month prep process was mentally and physically testing, but she did learn the power behind regimented eating, and balanced carbohydrate, protein and fat intake as well as consistency in weight training.
She entered her first NPC bikini competition in 2015 and placed 5th in her height class. Geny had a realization that she wanted to empower people to take on their health from a proactive and preventive approach in order to live free of chronic illness and limitations. Her passion continues to be education and creating understanding and ease around medical and physiological concepts about the human body and how it can function at its most optimal level both in and out of the gym.
She graduated February 2017 from American University of Integrative Sciences, School of Medicine. She continues to trains hard, and tracks her gains with the use of PFT’s KTA pre-workout fueling her daily weight training routines.
