Naomi Keane strives to cultivate an empowering, supportive, and inclusive community everywhere she goes.

Keane started Oranj Fitness in Airdrie with her dad in 2016 and they opened their Kensington location in 2019.

She has a background in education, dance, fitness and nutrition and she says the COVID-19 pandemic has taught her the importance of perspective.

“I want to love my community hard and make an impact for as long as I can. I commit to taking the time with each person that I am so blessed to have connection with and I try my hardest to leave them happier than they were when they first came into my presence,” she says.

She adds that it is her goal to mentor her instructors and help them to work hard and share their passion for health and wellness.

Jenna Hunt works with Keane and nominated her for the Amazing Heart Award, saying she is kind, caring, welcoming and brings happiness into everyone’s life she touches.

“Without a doubt, she is an amazing woman and we are lucky she calls Airdrie home,” adds Hunt.

“She is humble yet gorgeous, inspiring yet down to Earth and truly beautiful inside and out.”
