ABOUT OUR KEYNOTE
David ‘Patch’ Patchell-Evans
David ‘Patch’ Patchell-Evans is a lifelong entrepreneur with a drive for growth and a relentless commitment to give everyone in Canada the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life.
Patch’s commitment to fitness is more than a business, it’s his life’s purpose.
After a serious motorcycle accident during his university years, Patch learned firsthand how fitness can help rebuild and rehabilitate the body. In his early 30s, a diagnosis of severe, aggressive rheumatoid arthritis reaffirmed that lesson. All his adult life, he has used fitness to maintain his health and improve his mobility.
Patch opened his first GoodLife Fitness club in London, ON in 1979 and has since grown the GoodLife group of clubs (including Goodlife, Fit4Less, ÉconoFitness and Oxygen Yoga & Fitness) to over 380 clubs, 1.3 million members and more than 10,800 Associates coast-to-coast.
He has built GoodLife into the largest fitness club chain in Canada and the fourth largest in the world. Patch also owns the CityFitness club chain in New Zealand.
Patch has been actively involved in steering his companies through the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic and as an advocate for the benefits of physical activity to promote better health for Canadians.
