3rd Degree Training and Actual Nutrition Announce New Partnership

3rd Degree Training and Actual Nutrition is thrilled to announce our new Partners, Lori MacKenzie and Chris Harker. Lori and Chris founded and developed Massage Addict in 2008 and expanded the brand across Canada before selling in 2014. The CFA annual convention enabled Steve Collette, Co-Founder and CEO, to meet Lori and Chris through its’ networking events. Steve, Lori and Chris soon began discussing the partnership opportunity.

“My background in fitness as a multi-unit franchisee with Curves for Women, coupled with my experience building a franchise brand from scratch with Massage Addict made 3rdDegree Training and Actual Nutrition a perfect fit for me,” says MacKenzie

“We grew Massage Addict from inception into a household name across Canada. We are positioning 3rdDegree Training and Actual Nutrition to follow the same growth trajectory”, adds Harker.

“With the expertise that Lori and Chris bring to the table, it was a perfect fit. Being East coast Franchisors themselves,  having grown an amazing Canadian brand, we know that this partnership will be vital to our aggressive growth while adding  tremendous support to our current franchise partners”

“We are all extremely excited to bring our amazing brands to communities across Canada – providing opportunities for future business owners while helping keep Canadians healthy”. – For more info please reach out –
