Early life[edit | edit source]

Gill was born in Calgary, Alberta, the daughter of Nancy Lou Anderson (nee Leblanc) and Robert Charles Gill. Since 2006, she has lived in Vancouver, British Columbia. Gill has recalled an emotionally and psychologically challenging childhood that included insecurity, anxiety, depression, her parents' divorce, a struggle with school grades, and anorexia.[12] In her early twenties, she reached “rock bottom”[13] and then made a decision to learn everything she could about health and fitness and take back her life.[14]

Career[edit | edit source]

Gill started competing professionally in 2009 in Olympic weightlifting, running, rowing, gymnastics, Spartan, CrossFit Regionals, and CrossFit Super Regionals.[15][7][16] Since 2010, Gill has been sponsored by Reebok, and named by Reebok Canada as a ‘Super Athlete.’[citation needed] In 2012, she became a personal trainer and began incorporating fitness with her on-camera television work.[citation needed] In 2017, Gill was honored as a YWCA Vancouver Woman of Distinction.[17]

In 2006, Gill graduated from Columbia Academy of Broadcasting Performing Arts in Vancouver, Canada, with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and began working for a number of Vancouver based radio and television stations.[18] In 2013, Gill left a position with Bell Media for CTV, where she began guest hosting a new weekly fitness segment.[19] In 2017, Gill became co-host for Buddha-Ful TV, an online publication and education source for everyday plant-based foods.[20]

In 2013, Gill formed her total wellness company, MGM Fitness. By 2017, MGM Fitness became known by the namesake brand, ‘Mandy Gill’.[21] In 2017, Gill launched a digital application called MANDY GILL APP, for "personal training at your fingertips".[14][22]
