Lucy Cerantola never saw herself as a top bodybuilder

Lucy Cerantola never saw herself as a top bodybuilder

By CLAUDE SCILLEY

Interested in sports and fitness since her high school days and her years at Royal Military College, 17383  Lucy Cerantola (Class of 1990) got into the personal training business when she moved to Oakville, Ont., six years ago.

She was just looking for some fun ways to train and to train others, when she heard of a group in Burlington that was doing interesting things, so she decided to pay them a visit. “They were doing these great workouts for legs and I wanted to see if they could kill me on it,” she recalled.

What evolved, Cerantola says, “I didn’t see coming.”

She recalls the day vividly. “We got talking and they said, ‘You know, if you were interested in competing, you could do that,’ and I thought, ‘Compete in what?’”

At 40 years of age, Cerantola, the former Lucy Rourke, thought her competition days were done. When it was suggested that she might be successful as a competitive body builder, she was taken aback. “I’m, like, ‘I don’t think I could do body building at my age.’”

Life & Times of 2864 Dr Pierre Bussières @ RMCC & Beyond

Posted by rmcclub on February 1st, 2015

E3161 Victoria Edwards interviewed 2864 Dr Pierre Bussières (RMC 1952), a member of the first class known as the “The New One Hundred”, one of the first graduate students at RMC, a member of RMC staff (1966-96) and a Professor Emeritus since 1996.

e-veritas: You were a member of the first class known as the “The New One Hundred”, which re-opened RMC after WWII. Did you have any military or flight experience prior to RMC?

2864 Dr. Pierre Bussières: I was born in Sainte-Ursule, Quebec (near Trois-Rivières), where I received my early schooling. I saw my first aircraft, a Barnstormer with a Curtis « Jenny »; it was $2.00 for a ride. My father went but would not bring me. I decided that I wanted to fly! We moved to Montreal when I was ten. When I attended École Supérieure Saint-Viateur in Montréal, I was a member of the Army Cadet Corps. Corps membership was mandatory for all 305 students. During Grade 12, I joined Les Fusiliers Mont-Royals as a reservist. This was the total of my military experience. My total knowledge of RMC consisted of an old engraving showing cadets on the parade square, before the building of the Currie Building.

e-veritas: What memories do you have of RMC just after WWII?
