Let’s get to know our presenter

Deniece (D) Bell has been a part of a number of initiatives and developments for the advancement of sport via collaborations with the Coaching Association of Canada, the IDEAS Research lab, Ophea, Motus Training Studios and other grassroots programs. Her research is focused on decolonizing fitness and finding ways to support anti-racism in sport. DBell is also an LGBTQ2S+ advocate. An H&PE enthusiast, teacher for over 15 years, and recent Kinesiology U of T graduate, all inform how Deniece challenges discussions of equity, or lack thereof, in sport.

A former high performance athlete in athletics, helped D establish her movement and strength practices, but also her struggles. Her focus is now on the joy and healing that movment can bring using a variety of forms (e.g. Kettlebells, gymnastics, martial arts, splashing around in the water, etc…), but most importantly, while engaged in shenanigans with her family.

With a goal to be more active on social media, you can find her @coachdeebell (instagram).
