Nick Brindisi


Hi! I’m Nick Brindisi, and I built MyActiveLifetime.com. Growing up and living in Beautiful Collingwood, Ontario, Canada gave me a perfect setting to live an active life from an early Age. With ski hills, the huge Georgian Bay off Lake Huron, forest trails, and a wide variety of sports facilities, Collingwood is ideal for healthy active lifestyles.

I have had the honour to raise two young men, Matthew 26 and Thomas 21  with my wife Susan. My family is active in a variety of sports and strives to eat healthy food while scheduling very busy lives.

Having volunteered as a coach for many years in a variety of sports, I now hope to make coaching and helping others my life long vocation. If I can help one person improve one aspect of their life then I’m fulfilled.

My goal in creating My Active Lifetime is to bring together the collective knowledge of other people who inspire me to write about a variety of things related to healthy living. Physical, mental, spiritual and nutritional health are all key areas that we all need to improve upon. The contributors I have selected are subject matter experts in areas such as life coaching, psychotherapy, nutrition, physical conditioning, various sports and more! I’m thrilled to bring it all together to share here on myactivelifetime.com.
