Fashionably in Shape


Take a look inside the hottest party in Canada’s fitness industry… Fashionably in Shape

On January 18th, the biggest names in fitness came out for Inside Fitness’ 5th Annual Hot & Fit 100 VIP Launch Party at Everleigh in Toronto. As always, the guests at this exclusive industry event proved to us that being fit and in shape is what’s fashionable.
Hosted by Canada’s #1 fitness magazine Inside Fitness, the Hot & Fit 100 VIP Launch Party celebrates the fittest physiques in Canada. For the fifth year in a row submissions for the list came in from all across Canada. The winner, Belinda Kiriakou from Toronto, graces the February/March 2014 Inside Fitness issue along with the complete list of finalists inside the magazine. The Hot & Fit 100 party and issue recognizes women who dedicate themselves to fitness year-round. They make their body and health their priority because they know that if they don’t the results can be deadly.



Fitness Expert and Personality Stephanie Joanne was on hand on the red carpet to interview everyone on their way in. “After living in workout gear and being gym rats, it’s great to see everyone play dress up and celebrate some of the best in the biz,” says Stephanie. “Fitness is my business but it’s also my life. When you’re in shape your clothes fit better, your body loves you, you feel better about yourself and that will always be fashionable to me.”


It was definitely a memorable night for Hot & Fit 100 winner and cover girl Belinda Kiriakou. “I couldn’t have asked for a better party to celebrate this special fitness milestone in my life,” said Belinda. “Surrounded by the entire IFM family, who worked so tremendously hard to make the event run smoothly and having my friends and family around, as well as my Team Fight2BeFit crew!” Dedicated to her own fitness as well as the fitness of other, Belinda is immersed in the fitness world as a coach, Health & Fitness Advisor and co-owner of Fight2BeFit, a training facility in Toronto.
