Meet the NC Women of the Year

International Women's Day, March 8th, is a day of jubilation - a celebration of the incredible strength, resilience, and courage embodied by women everywhere.

We use this day to celebrate ALL women within our NC community.

At NC we are lucky enough to be surrounded by so many beacons of inspiration, so we couldn't decide on just one Woman of the Year.

As such it brings us great pleasure to announce our two women of the year 2024 nominees:


Vanessa Panella (@DVP.Fitness)

In the radiant tapestry of our NC community, one woman stands out as a beacon of inspiration and gratitude – Vanessa Panella.

Vanessa, a mother of two, an enterprising entrepreneur, a coach, and an absolute powerhouse of a woman, has been a guiding light in our lives. Her unwavering commitment to positivity and leadership in the fitness industry has left an indelible mark on our hearts. Changing lives is not just a vocation for Vanessa; it's a daily mission, and for that, we are profoundly grateful.

In recognition of Vanessa's extraordinary contributions, we are honoured to bestow upon her the well-deserved title of NC Woman of the Year. This accolade is a testament to her dedication, passion, and the countless lives she has touched and transformed.

But the celebration doesn't stop there! To express our gratitude to Vanessa and extend our joy to the entire DVP community, we're thrilled to offer an extra 15% off on all of Vanessa's top picks and favourites. It's a small token of appreciation for the immense impact she has had on our fitness journeys.

Curious about what fuels Vanessa's motivation, we asked her a simple yet profound question:

What inspires you?

"I am motivated to not lose my identity as Vanessa because I am a better mum when I'm just me."

Her response reflects the authenticity and depth of her character. These words resonate with the authenticity that defines Vanessa – a reminder that, at the core of her incredible achievements, lies a commitment to selfhood and genuine connection.

Vanessa, today we want to shout from the rooftops: Thank you!
Thank you for being a positive leader, a source of inspiration, and a beacon of strength for us all. Your impact is immeasurable, and as a community, we are privileged to celebrate and honour you.

We love you, Vanessa – today and always. 💙
