Australian athlete and fitness coach Jarryd Smith now calls Quebec City home. A big believer in the power of exercise, he runs Dadventures, a pilot program funded by the Jeffery Hale Wellness Centre. “Fitness is a journey and you need to enjoy the ride,” Smith says.

Jarryd Smith looks like a fitness coach, so it’s no surprise to learn that he is one. Smith, who is 6’2’’, started playing Australian Rules Football (ARF) when he was seven and spent 11 years as a semi-pro player.
