Fit On Tour promotes health & fitness in the entertainment industry.
We are bringing together road warriors in a community that is inspiring, attainable and fun. Being ‘fit’ doesn’t have to be about eating 100% clean, or busting out burpees - it’s about finding time for yourself in your busy days. Whether that’s as simple as meditation, or stretching or as big as a bootcamp, or spin class - it’s about stepping away for your mental and physical health.
Beyond this, it’s about breaking the ‘hustle hard’ mentality our industry has adopted – let’s encourage our artists, teams and crews to take breaks, make good choices, and open up about their well-being.
Our website will feature stories from some of your favourite artists, crew, and road warriors, as well as offer products & services that will help you with your Fit On Tour journey.
Meet the founders
Fit On Tour was founded by Andrea MacNeil and Jessica Lemmon in December 2018.
With careers in the music industry, their combined experience includes touring internationally with major bands, festivals, and events.
Although the perception of the entertainment industry and life on tour is a glamorous one, the reality can often be much different with long hours and very little consistency. Andrea and Jessica, like so many other artists and crew members, fell victim to an unhealthy lifestyle, resulting in poor eating and sleeping habits, overindulging in alcohol consumption, a lack of health and fitness, depression, and weight gain.
In 2017, Andrea and Jessica both felt mentally and physically defeated. They were living their dream, but were sacrificing so much of themselves to do so. Together, they decided to make a change, to buck the trend and find a way to be healthy while balancing their careers. They made a pact to incorporate health and wellness into their every day and set a goal to achieve 30 minutes of exercise daily, regardless of their schedule and environment.
They began implementing small changes, including making mindful choices at catering, and walking or running to and from their venue rather than taking a shuttle. They became creative with their workouts - bench pressing hotel room furniture, squatting with sandbags while setting up, ladder drills on the cable mats and planking in the production office.
Enter Fit On Tour. Andrea and Jessica are now on a mission to change the lives of road warriors around the world by helping individuals keep health & fitness top of mind among the demands of the industry.
