From a young age, Lisa was plagued with chronic health issues. As a child she spent many a night in hospital and unfortunately, these health problems followed her into adulthood. While doctors were able to diminish many of the symptoms of her illnesses with medications, they offered no substantive “cure”. Frustrated with the limitations of the conventional healthcare system, Lisa began her own quest for health solutions. Through years of extensive research and personal experimentation she has managed to dramatically improve her health and discontinue her life-long reliance on pharmaceuticals. Happily, Lisa now lives a joyful, adventurous, and high-performance life.
Lisa’s success in self-healing has fueled a passion to help others become the healthiest versions of themselves and is what led her to create Aeon Future Health. Located in Calgary, Aeon is a health optimization and longevity facility and the first of its kind in Canada. Moving away from a successful career in the energy sector, Lisa and her team of health professionals and coaches spend their time helping others take control of their own health using the very latest in science.

Justin is a health and fitness fanatic, who has spent a majority of his adult life focused on optimizing performance. Whether that was to excel has a high level hockey referee, to be extra sharp at work, or to have lots of energy to play with his kids, he is constantly looking into the latest data and trends to give him the edge.
However, it wasn’t always this way. In college (where he studied to be a journalist), he was actually overweight, depressed and lacking any motivation to do anything. When he started to realize that refereeing in the NHL might be a possibility, he did everything possible to get into good shape. After hiring a coach, changing his mindset and dialing in his sleep, he ended up losing 70 pounds in one year.
That started Justin on a path to helping others. He spent the past 10 years as a personal trainer and more recently, a nutrition coach. He’s now combining that and his experience as a local journalist/marketer in his current role with Aeon to help people achieve health goals they might once have thought impossible!
