Hi. I’m Marci Warhaft, a Resiliency Coach and Body Image Advocate.

After spending years battling a severe eating disorder as a result of a multitude of traumas and low self-worth, I found the strength to regain my health and reclaim my life. Before my recovery, I allowed the shame I carried from a difficult past keep me from living my life freely. I lived in fear of being judged and never felt that who I was could ever be enough. I was wrong. Once I made the decision to make the changes necessary to be happy, I was finally able to enjoy my life in ways I never could have imagined. In 2007, I founded the Fit vs Fiction Body Image workshops, an interactive workshop for parents, kids and teachers that empowers kids to live with healthy self-esteem in an image obsessed society. I have been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Health Leaders by Optimyz Fitness and wellness magazine for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 and have published two books.

I share my story openly and honestly so that others can feel safe sharing their own struggles and concerns with me.

Fit vs. Fiction

Marci Warhaft is teaching young men and women how to reclaim the power to build the healthy, strong self-esteem that will arm them with the self confidence they need to tune out negative messages and be exactly who they want to be instead of who they think they’re supposed to be.


The Good Stripper

“Gentlemen! Put your hands together and welcome Cassidy to the stage!”

It wasn’t the life Marci Warhaft envisioned for herself. A good student who had been accepted into a prestigious theatre school, a doting mother with two young sons, and there she was taking it all off in front of paying customers to “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child. The Good Stripper is an eye-popping journey: Warhaft reveals the punishing circumstances and self-destructive behaviors that shaped her early adulthood, including a bank-robbing stepfather, the loss of her beloved brother, eating disorders, and sexual misadventures in a dysfunctional marriage.


She describes, in honest, raw, and intimate detail, her struggles to recognize what was happening to her, and her sometimes misguided fight to regain control of her destiny. Above all, it is the story of how one woman, after years of living a double life, packing school lunches by day and giving lap dances by night, finally became the inspirational leader she was meant to be.
