Catherine Garceau        

Olympic Bronze Medalist & Author of "Swimming Out of Water: How An Olympian's Struggle Inspired Breakthrough Discoveries in Health and Well-Being"

Catherine Garceau is a world leader blending the power of the Olympic Mindset with the importance of emotional presence and awareness. Catherine began seeing the importance of a 360 approach to success when, after winning an Olympic Bronze medal in Synchronized Swimming in Sydney 2000, she found herself powerless to overcome an eating disorder. How could her will power fail her after she had used it to climb to the top of athletic stardom? After years of experiments and studies in mind-body nutrition, emotional freedom techniques, and mindset, she cracked the code on what was preventing her from letting go of stubborn eating habits that made her life miserable.

Her book Swimming Out of Water inspires people to embrace 360-degree approach to life, which decreases stress, promotes positive thinking, and enables better emotional awareness to release negative habits.

Catherine’s quest of self-discovery started in 2006, years after she stopped competing. Post graduation from the University of Toronto with a degree in Economics, Catherine went on to become a professional aquatic performer in some of the best shows in the world, including Le Reve, at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas. Just as she was leaving her career in Life Vegas, her life took a turn when she spent a life-altering 24-hours wedged in the Red Rocks of Las Vegas. It was during this experience that she realized how much her Olympic journey was both a cause and a cover for great physical and psychological troubles. This epiphany inspired her to combine insights from her battle with eating disorders with studies in the psychology of eating and body-mind nutrition to develop EAT 360: Emotional Awareness Training for 360 Degrees of Nourishment. The EAT 360 program puts women in the driver’s seat of navigating their relationship with food, their body and their mind.

Catherine has been featured on the CBS TV program Entertainment Tonight and Canada AM believes that physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wholeness occurs when we fully embrace life’s lessons with curiosity and courage and use what we become aware of as fuel to expand our potential power. Through keynotes, training and consultation, Catherine empowers audiences to transform patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors for greater personal and professional success. Her energy and enthusiasm inspires others to dive in to find life’s pearls of wisdom that lie within us all.

In addition to spearheading new weight loss and emotion eating solutions through online programs, one-on-one coaching, and speaking engagements, Catherine is also passionate to address chlorine byproducts in pools worldwide. Her mission to establish safer, healthier, and more ecological swimming pool filtration in North America is also included in the inspirational story she shares in Swimming Out of Water.
