Speakers & Special Guests


Meet Eric

Eric is one of the true pioneers of the food revolution. As the founder of WildFit, Eric is passionate about helping people achieve outstanding health by empowering them to reclaim their relationship with food. In 1991 Eric experienced a dramatic health recovery which inspired years of research into the fields of human health, evolutionary biology and human history. Today, Eric is extremely passionate about helping people achieve vibrant health and inspiring people to take responsibility for their own self-care.


  • Eric used to lead groups of people on expeditions up Mount Kilimanjaro. Legend has it he even made the climb once while he was fasting!
  • Eric has 2 kids, spaced 20 years apart!
  • Wildfit was never intended to become the global healthcare phenomena it is today. It first started out with Eric teaching a small group of his friends what he had learned through his own radical health transformation and helping them with transformations of their own. News of their success spread and eventually WildFit became the fastest growing health coaching program in the world.

His goal is simple: To make sure his clients can perform at their highest level consistently throughout the year, without breaking down. When he first entered the sports medicine field, Ara expected to spend the majority of his time dealing with injuries, but what he found was that athletes were primarily looking for solutions to low energy.

  • Ara Suppiah has worked with some of the world’s top golfers, many of whom credit him with their success!
  • Dr. Suppiah was shocked when the biggest complaint from professional athletes was NOT injuries.
  • In his spare time, Ara not only enjoys golf, but is also a huge tennis nut.

Meet Josh

The world is Josh’s playground; he wants to teach you to embrace your inner animal so you can reconnect with movement and nature.


  • Josh likes to keep things spicy and is an avid hotsauce connoisseur.
  • If you can’t find Josh, just look up! Josh is an ambitious climber and if there is something around that he can climb, he will.

When Ilene was half way through her doctorate in psychology, she realized that even though she was doing everything she thought she was supposed to, she felt miserable. How could she have been doing everything right, and still have felt so wrong? Ilene immediately put that career on hold and made some changes. She chased her dreams and built up several successful online businesses, and now teaches others to do the same. Ilene realized that she was not limited by her past, or her upbringing, or any other obstacles. She discovered she could have it all, and she wants to show you how you can too!


  • Ilene was once told by her own family that success and wealth is reserved for other people, not people like her.
  • Ilene is a huge dog lover! She has one of her own named Bentley.
  • Ilene spent some time living in the Dominican Republic, just like WildFit Founder, Eric Edmeades.

Meet Bruce

While living as the only white man in a ghetto in South Africa, Bruce realized the power of radical honesty after admitting to his new neighbours that he had realized he was racist and moved in so he could conquer that. Bruce discovered that by being honest, he was forced to show up in the world as his real self instead of hiding behind the mask of “I’m Fine.” He found that his numbness about life disappeared and there was a sense of rich aliveness on the other side of that mask. Now Bruce applies this concept to relationships as he teaches couples to stop fighting and learn to get on the same team.


  • Bruce was born in South Africa, just like WildFit Founder Eric Edmeades.
  • Bruce was originally inspired into teaching when he spent 6 months living as the only white man in a village of 100,000 black South Africans.
  • One of Bruce’s favorite hobbies is kite surfing.


Andrea has been working in the personal development and public speaking industry for over a decade. A natural born leader, she has a gift for bringing out the best in people and a knack for building powerful teams. Andrea has found a way to juggle life as president of WildFit, successful entrepreneur and “proudly imperfect” mom to two very active kids, all while keeping a smile on her face. Through her own transformational journey, she’s discovered that we all have the ability to shift, change and grow.


  • Andrea's first dip into the world of entrepreneurship was running a custom fitted bra business when she was sixteen.
  • Growing up in a small town with a hunter in the family, Andrea learned how to skin an animal (yes, it’s true!)
  • Andrea was home schooled as a kid, something she's quite proud of.
