World Natural Sports Organization & FAME World Events:

jeffmindy1.jpgCorporate Backgrounder
From an in-house fitness training business in Toronto to the international stage, Jeff Kippel and Mindy Blackstien have revolutionized the world of fitness. Armed with a common ambition, a love of fitness and a focused determination, Jeff and Mindy have seen their goal of the World Natural Sports Organization (WNSO) grow to become a global force in the multi-billion dollar health & fitness industry, and have put Canada on the fitness map with FAME World Events. On the heels of the FAME Magazine launch and with events in Canada, The U.S., Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the Caribbean, this husband and wife team has had unprecedented success around the world, and continues to build the brand they have made synonymous with fitness, modeling and talent: FAME.

logo-fame.jpgAnswering the call for high caliber fitness events that promoted natural training and competing, WNSO is a fitness organization based on professionalism, consummate performance and commitment to the fitness, modeling and talent community. The arrival of FAME, the competition and exposition division of WNSO, proved to be a milestone in the worldwide fitness scene, providing a natural forum that paralleled the status of other high profile sporting events, and ultimately launched the natural fitness movement in Canada.

FAME provided the opportunity for competitors of all ages and levels of experience to compete in fitness, figure, fitness modeling, bodybuilding and power dance amidst an exposition of sponsors and exhibitors displaying the latest cutting edge items and ideas of the industry. It was this commitment to athleticism and drive to move natural fitness events to the global forefront that led to the creation of FAME World Events, spanning North America and overseas.

FAME and WNSO expanded to include a U.S. series, a newly introduced Pro Division and hosted events in 5 of the world’s continents. To date, over 7,500 competitors worldwide take part in these landmark events, with international finalists competing in the Grand Finale of the FAME World Events currently held in Toronto, Canada.

Offering the knowledge, advice and contacts developed over the course of establishing WNSO and FAME, The FAME Agency assists athletes, models and talent in reaching the pages of print, radio and television, responding to casting calls and interview requests for fitness experts and elite athletes. The FAME Agency also provides valuable networking resources to businesses within the fitness and modeling industries.

World Natural Sports & FAME World Events continues to raise the bar around the world for events combining serious competition and entertainment, with continued dedication to the professionalism and respect that are deserving of the diligence that constructs a natural fitness competitor. As a premier travel destination for visitors from around the world, WNSO is supported by the Toronto Entertainment District Association (TEDA) and Tourism Toronto.
