Working It Out Together Season 1

The six-part series Working It Out Together follows former Olympian Waneek Horn-Miller’s journey to help eight Aboriginal people turn their lives around. The participants are dealing with nearly every issue related to wellness, from obesity, eating disorders, low self-esteem, emotional trauma, busy schedules, depression, poor nutrition, substance abuse and lack of motivation. Relying on the numerous experts she has in her network, Waneek will tackle all of these obstacles with each individual. They will need to find a way to achieve results and transform their lives for the better.

By observing the pitfalls and triumphs of everyday people as they try to get healthy, the audience will learn many lessons and, hopefully, be inspired and empowered to make changes in their own lives.

The Experts



Waneek Horn-Miller – Olympic Athlete

Larry Hunter – Personal Trainer

“My goal is to share my interest in fitness, strength and conditioning to people who are looking to make a change in their health and are looking for guidance in achieving their goals… Health should be everyone’s top priority. You can’t enjoy life to the fullest if you’re not in good physical and mental health.”




Jayne Murdoch – Registered Dietitian

“Fad diets only offer quick fixes and are not sustainable. Instead of dieting, weight loss is best achieved by adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy eating pattern and physical activity. My primary goal is to teach the participants Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide – a healthy eating pattern to be followed during their weight loss and afterward.”




Tiffany Wahsontiiostha Deer – Chef

“As Native people, I think it’s natural that we pioneer this movement away from big business food and opt for organic, healthy choices. I hope to show people that it isn’t hard to incorporate good food into our diets. Healthy food seems to have a bad reputation with a lot of people. It can actually be very delicious!”




Theresa Ducharme – Fitness Specialist

Theresa Ducharme is CEO and founder of Lemon Cree, a health and fitness organization that specializes in fun recreational activities that bring a holistic approach to exercise. “We’re starting a movement; call it a revolution or merely a change in lifestyle. It is time to get back to our roots and restore our values; and it starts with our health.”




Sandra Reich – M.Ed

Sandra Reich is the Clinical Director of the Montréal Center of Anxiety and Depression as well as a qualified and experienced Cognitive Behavioral Therapist specializing in Anxiety Disorders.

Dr. Ojistoh Horn – Family Medicine

Dr. Ojistoh Horn comes from the Mohawk Nation of Kahnawake where she works as a family physician.
