Trish Stratus Bio
From wrestling champion and fitness icon to television personality and entrepreneur, few people can claim as diverse and successful a career as Trish Stratus. A record-setting seven time WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) Women's Champion, Stratus is one of the most successful professional athletes in sports entertainment. Combining beauty and brawn, she embodied the rise of the 'WWE Diva' as a cultural phenomenon. After seven years, Stratus retired from the world of sports entertainment in 2006. As champion, she took her final bow at the Air Canada Centre in front of 20,000 hometown fans and set a Guinness World Record for most wins by a female wrestling champion.
Stratus' foray into the yoga world began with a back injury that sidelined her during her wrestling career. After using yoga to rehabilitate a herniated disk, Stratus was able to make a full comeback to the ring. A true believer in the healing practice of yoga, Stratus made it a mission to spread the word and opened Stratusphere Yoga Studio in 2008. Her entrepreneurial achievements have been recognized with various awards and publications, as she has quickly become one of the country's most dedicated advocates of yoga.
Following the opening of her yoga studio, Trish officially launched her lifestyle brand with a number of ventures under the Stratusphere banner. In 2011, Stratusphere Living, her yoga fitness product line was launched nationally to retailers along with the release of her first workout DVD. Stratus' on-going endeavours all reflect her brand's core philosophy of achieving wellness through balanced living.
Years before her television and WWE days, Stratus was a pre-med student, majoring in biology and kinesiology at York University with plans to become a doctor. However, a professor's strike in 1997 halted those plans. But as they say, when one door closes, another one opens. Shortly thereafter, publishing mogul, Robert Kennedy, signed her to an exclusive contract and gave Stratus her break into the fitness industry.
Stratus made her feature film debut in 2012, starring in the action movie 'Bounty Hunters'. Currently, Stratus can be seen in New Balance's latest ads as the face of their Minimus campaign in Sport Chek stores across Canada. Most recently, Trish has her place amongst wrestling's greats as she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2013 at Madison Square Garden. Taking on perhaps her greatest role yet, Stratus welcomed her first child Maximus into the world on September 30th, 2013.
Her signature workout system Stratusphere Yoga, a style that combines yoga and strength training hits shelves across North America September 16th, 2014.
