Personal Best (PB) co-owner Barrie Shepley was Canada’s National Triathlon Team coach in 1991, and for several years following. PB was formed in 1991 and since that year, Barrie has coached hundreds of people to national championship titles, Pan American Games medals, World Championship medals as well as successful completion of the Hawaii Ironman and the Boston Marathon. Barrie was selected to go to the 2000 Sydney Olympics where Triathlon made its debut as a full medal sport. Canada won the gold medal in the men's event, a performance no one will ever forget.

Furthermore, Barrie has been the voice of the International Triathlon Union, and announced races all over the world, including multiple Olympic games. As a Board member for Triathlon, co-founder of Ontario Triathlon, and former chair for the Coaches Association of Ontario, there are few people in our nation that have contributed as much to the sport as Barrie. Barrie was also the founder of the Kids of Steele triathlon program, a program that gave many of our nation's top triathletes a start in the sport, including Olympic gold medal winner Simon Whitfield.

It is with extreme sadness that We share our beautiful Caron Shepley ended her five-year journey with cancer, Saturday September 30th, 2023.

Caron was so much more than her outer beauty.

She was a sister, an amazing daughter & daughter-in-law, an aunt, an Ironman triathlete, a yoga teacher, an animal communicator, a paddle board instructor, a corporate wellness Director, a spiritual energy researcher, a friend to many, an incredible wife and a passionate fundraiser for animal charities.

A graduate of McMaster University where she received an honours degree in physical education, Caron worked in corporate fitness for over 30 years.  As Corporate Director she maintained a hands-on approach to the facililties managed by Personal Best.  She supported Personal Best's team members (i.e. staff) with unparalled care, guidance and love, and treated all team members like family. Caron was also a master yoga instructor, trained fitness professionals to be instructors and had her own series of DVDs.  Caron completed the Ironman Triathlon several times and won a silver medal for Canada at the world Triathlon Championships.  

There is no replacing a wonder like Caron, we are deeply saddened, however the lessons she taught us during her life will remain and echo into the years to come. 

Caron - we love you
