More on Yvan from his wikipedia page:

Yvan Benoit Cournoyer was born in the province of Quebec in Canada. Named after legendary hockey star Yvan Cournoyer, his parents raised him and his three brothers on a pig farm in a rural part of the province. Passionate about sports, while not tending to the farm, Yvan spent as much time developing his physique and learning about fitness as he could.

In 1999, Yvan was named athlete of the year in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The same year, he won the bronze medal in the Quebec bodybuilding championships and the gold medal in the Gladiator Fighting Competition.

In 2000, Yvan was recognized as Outstanding Model of the Year by the Institute of Top Models. This quickly brought him to the attention of world-renowned photographer Brent McTavish.

Wanting something more for his career, Yvan packed up everything he owned and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia. Up to this time, Yvan had only spoken French and was quickly submersed into a world of English speaking people. Determined to succeed, Yvan quickly picked up English and also became one of Canada’s most sought after personal trainers. His client list includes Hollywood celebrities, fitness models and even Miss World 2003, Nazanin Afshin-Jam.

In 2002, Yvan was the subject of a major photo feature in Playgirl magazine and this feature raised his stature to the level of international superstar. He signed to the production company Mega Muscle and has created three workout DVDs and a series of calendars and other products. He is also known as the face (and body) of Ginch Gonch underwear.
