Ivan Ho holds a Bachelor of Kinesiology and years of experience competing as a Varsity Track and Field athlete at the University of Western Ontario. Upon graduation, Ivan followed his passion for fitness and started his first company Fit from Home Inc. in 2009, for which he received the 2009 William F. Bell Young Entrepreneur Award.
He then noticed the popularity of group training rising in North America, but with so many facilities solely focusing on expansion, the quality of service was certainly overlooked. Ivan quickly realized the seemingly huge demand for a unique service in Toronto and founded Fit Factory Fitness Inc. in 2010 with business partner Tony Austin.
With over seven years in the marketing, events and entertainment industry, Ivan uses his expertise to develop a wide range of campaigns and special events for Fit Factory to stay on the cusp of the fitness industry. Ivan strives to stay on top of the game and was recognized for his business achievement by the Association of Chinese Canadian Entrepreneurs, winning the 2013 Best Start-Up Award.
Ivan has since been invited to speak at multiple conferences including the University of Toronto Alumni Leader2Leader Conference, Government of Ontario's Annual Small Business Forum, Rogers TV Personal & Business Finance, and more.
