Professional Experience

Wondering if you can lose 10 pounds in one week? As a women's fitness specialist in Hollywood, being the voice of reason in a town of crazy helped lead me to becoming the private fitness and Pilates trainer to Gwen Stefani. I've been training clients around the world for 20 years yet people are still bombarded everyday with fitness fads and bad ideas about exercise and nutrition. It's no wonder people get confused and don't know what to do. As a freelance writer, I share information about fitness for life in the real world, and about how fitness is more than the moves, it's a chance to make a new mindset, without really "thinking" about it.
