Co-Founder Ivan Ho
With a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology and years of experience competing as a Varsity Track and Field athlete at the University of Western Ontario, Ivan Ho, knows what it takes to be in the best shape in order to compete at the highest level. Once graduated Ivan followed his passion for fitness and started his first company, Fit from Home, when he received the William F. Bell Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
With the popularity of boot camp rising in North America, Ivan quickly realized the seemingly huge demand for such a unique service in Toronto. But with so many boot camps throughout the city and many of which are solely focusing on expansion, the quality of its service is certainly overlooked.
In 2009 Ivan was introduced to Tony A and after a heated debate about the flaws in the boot camp industry. They pondered the idea of an exclusive place where members can experience the real military styled training system without having to train outdoors at a park on restricted days and times. After a long stressful day, some would do well with a rejuvenating class and some would just have to sweat it out.
The idea of a one of a kind ‘one stop shop for fitness’ began. In 2010 Ivan partners his managerial and business skills with Tony ’s extensive training background who has spent the last two decades building and shaping bodies, as both followed their passion…Fit Factory Fitness was created.
