    Why work with the Moose?

    I'm talking with people that are interested in health, wellness and fitness.  In particular people looking for information that educates, motivates, and inspires them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

    I am Dai Manuel aka “The Moose” – someone who made a decision at the age of 15 to lead a life of inspiring others about the benefits of living life to the fullest through a health and fitness orientated lifestyle.  I'm a dad, husband, co-founder and former COO of Fitness Town Inc, Keynote speaker, published author of the Whole Life Fitness Manifesto, CrossFit athlete and coach.  (and I love to #GetAfterIt)

    In 2010, I created The Moose is Loose, successfully combining multiple genres to create an information rich/resource blog that enjoys high traffic and a dedicated readership.

    The Moose is Loose/Dai is the perfect website for promoting products of interest to those seeking to either improve, or maintain, their healthy and active lifestyles.  I'm a family friendly site, committed to maintaining an atmosphere of respect and high-positivity.  Since the website is a combination of healthy lifestyle tips, workouts, and active mindset related topics, my readers expect and want me to inform them about quality products.

    I specialize in creating exciting, unique campaigns that get your message to my communities and readers.

    Media kit and rate card is available upon request.

    It is always a pleasure to work digital campaigns with Dai. He is accurate and professional and easy to work with. He has a great voice to communicate with his readers and writes from a place of authenticity and passion! ~ Julie Nowell, 3 Chickens and a Boat

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with Dai to help promote the Whistler Children’s Festival through social media. His overwhelming enthusiasm for our event was endless, and although he was extremely professional, his posts never felt pre-composed or detached. They were genuine and heart-felt and nothing short of being thrilled to come to our event. I have no doubt that partnering with Dai helped us achieve record numbers for the festival, and I look forward to a long-lasting relationship for years to come. ~ Brigitte Mah, Whistler Arts Council

    We really enjoyed working with Dai on our integrated effort with a retailer.  Dai brought both enthusiasm and professionalism in one package, which was greatly appreciated.  Balancing the needs of two partners can sometimes be tricky, but Dai met both partners' objectives while simultaneously maintaining his unique brand voice – remaining true to his audience, which is ideal and helps Canada Beef ensure transparent and accurate messages about our industry are reaching consumers. ~ Heather Travis, Canada Beef

    Working with Dai Manuel has been an absolute pleasure. His eagerness to offer his followers content that adds value in a friendly and interesting manner aligns with our brand promise that the future is friendly. Dai’s enthusiasm for a healthy lifestyle and support of family friendly brands is infectious, and we have seen tremendous value in working with Dai and his wife Christie, as their brand reaches influencers and social media savvy individuals. We would recommend any organization to work with them.  ~ Kat Percy, Telus

    We hold an annual Leadership Conference in Vancouver- each year our number of attendees grows, and this year we capped just over 800. We have a strong culture of fitness and remaining active, so sourcing instructors to lead runs, yoga, dance and circuit training was incredibly important. I had met Dai through the Crossfit Open, and from following him on social media was immediately impressed by his outlook on life, positivity & ability to engage a large and diverse audience through fitness. He seemed an obvious choice for leading our leaders in their sweaty pursuits each morning. Dai came in for two morning workouts at our conference and absolutely rocked our world- from his ability to modify the workouts for a large group and in a non-traditional gym space, to his demeanor and communication around the workout itself, Dai exceed every expectation we had. He willingly volunteered his own equipment and went to every length to ensure every participant left not only with a substantial amount of sweat, but also with a smile. Anyone can stand in front of a group of people at 6 am and make them do burpees; rarely can you find someone such as Dai who makes you actually enjoy the experience. ~ David Ogle, Lululemon
