Nautilus Plus teams up with Université Laval to promote healthy lifestyle habits
On Tuesday, September 19, 2023, at Nautilus Plus St-Romuald, a press conference was held to announce the brand-new partnership between Nautilus Plus and Laval University. This agreement has led to the creation of the first Chaire de leadership en enseignement (CLE) sur la promotion des saines habitudes de vie – Nautilus Plus (Nautilus Plus – Teaching Leadership Chair in the promotion of healthy lifestyle habits), under the responsibility of Kadia St-Onge, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine.
The creation of the CLE recognizes the importance of promoting healthy lifestyle habits. They are central to the development of sustainable health and well-being in the population, and represent a fundamental right according to Kadia St-Onge.
In particular, the Chair aims to develop course content in this field. It will produce innovative pedagogical tools to energize and optimize competency-based training at Université Laval, for all cycles.

“We want to highlight the expertise and experience of people working in the field, so that they can tell us about their know-how and the training needs associated with their issues. In this way, we hope to contribute to further decompartmentalizing the promotion of healthy lifestyle habits, which involves many sectors and disciplines,” emphasizes Chairholder Kadia Saint-Onge.
With over 300 health professionals working in its facilities, Nautilus Plus has for decades valued university-level training for all its personal trainers, kinesiologists and nutritionists. “Their expertise gives them an undeniable level of knowledge and competence to offer professional and attentive support to help integrate healthy lifestyle habits in a sustainable way,” says Martin Légaré, President and CEO of Nautilus Plus.
We look forward to discovering the projects and spin-offs of this wonderful initiative, which is so much needed by the population… with this CLÉ, we are contributing to a healthier, fitter Quebec.

Alexandre Despatie: an ambassador in perfect harmony with Nautilus Plus values!
Nautilus Plus is pleased to officially announce a strategic element of its 2022-2023 annual marketing campaign by unveiling an exceptional partnership that will certainly have Quebecers talking!
This year, for the first time, Nautilus Plus has chosen to entrust the mandate of ambassador to a former athlete who is a favorite of Quebecers, who saw him evolve on the small screen throughout his brilliant diving career: Alexandre Despatie! Known for his perseverance, determination and humility, he will be at the heart of the Nautilus Plus advertising campaign, which is a natural fit.
After leaving his training as a high-level athlete, he is now in his late thirties, ready to roll up his sleeves and take care of himself and his health. He wants to inspire Quebecers and encourage them to do the same by sharing his own training experience with Nautilus Plus health professionals, kinesiologists and nutritionists, all of whom are university trained.
Now working in the media as a host, speaker and spokesperson for sporting events, Alexandre is excited to start working with the professionals at Nautilus Plus. “Everyone has their own goals. Everyone has the right to aim for their own Olympics. And everyone should give themselves the best conditions to reach them. “To reach my new goals? I trust Nautilus Plus,” exclaimed Alexandre Despatie during his first meeting with Nautilus Plus senior management. This partnership underlines Alexandre’s real approach to getting back into shape in a healthy and sustainable way.
“I want to show what it’s like to train regularly and feel great and healthy. I want people to see how things are done at Nautilus Plus, everything they have to offer is incredible!” says Alexandre.
“It’s a unique opportunity for a 100% local company to partner with a Quebec Olympic medalist whose personality, character and values are so similar to ours! Alexandre is an accessible, authentic and friendly man with an exemplary professional and personal background. We are honored and proud to have him join us in encouraging all Quebecers to take care of their health, just like he did, and to trust a company that really cares about its members participating regularly, since attendance is the key to developing and integrating healthy lifestyle habits to ‘live more’,” says Martin Légaré, CEO of Nautilus Plus.
