Estevan local, Brady Johnson has been nominated for a YWCA Women of Distinction Award. 

"I am very excited," shared Brady Johnson who owns and operates Encompass Fitness. "It's such an honour and I'm really excited about it and really appreciative the recognition. It's something that I didn't expect at all."

Johnson was nominated by former Saskatchewanderer, Ashlyn George in the category of Contribution to Rural Community.

"To me, it just means being a leader and really a trailblazer. Someone who is going forward and making a change and is just passionate about seeing the community as a whole grow. And that's definitely something that I am really passionate about. Not only from the level of health and fitness but from community involvement. Something that I am passionate about is helping others discover their potential and see what they're capable of in their own life, in their family life, in their work life, and in the community."

Johnson is the owner of Encompass Fitness which she founded in 2014 which she has grown over the past few years. 

"I absolutely love personal growth and development. I hope that my dreams are able to inspire others. I love going into the schools and sharing with the kids just how important it is to follow their dreams."

"I love being able to have had an impact in Estevan. I'm grateful for that, it's a tremendous community."

She hopes that through this nomination, she is able to inspire others in the community. 

"I'm just so passionate about empowering women in general, not only through Encompass Fitness but I also branched into doing some lifestyle coaching and coaching women to be confident and courageous in their life and how they approach life. I hope to see that grow as well."

"Being nominated for Contribution to Rural Community, I would really like to thank the community of Estevan and surrounding area but also the community within the fitness studio, the members and the staff. It would never be possible without them because they are the change agents who also go out into the community, take what they've learned and share that with others. That's phenomenal to see, the ripple effect of that. As well as the community I have of supporters, my family, my friends who encourage me to achieve my dreams."

In addition, Evanne Wilhelm is nominated for Education and Mentorship and Brenda Lyons is nominated for Wellness, Recreation and Healthy Living.

The Awards Gala will be held in Regina on April 26th.
