Not so long ago I found myself unhappy with my body and my life. By focusing almost exclusively on my financial services career I sacrificed my health and gained 30 lbs in the course of a year. My energy left and took my confidence with it.
After seeing doctors and specialists, trying fad diets and extreme exercise programs with no lasting change, I decided to get to the root of my issues and find a way to heal myself. So I went back to school and over the next several years earned degrees and certifications in fitness and nutrition.
Once I understood the connections between food, exercise, and mental attitude I began to see a change not only in my weight but also in my outlook.
By making simple shifts in the way I thought about food and exercise I changed the way I felt about everything! I say this phrase a lot because I find it truly empowering.
I was able to lose the 30 lbs within a few short months and knew that I could help others do the same.
Simple Shifts Bring Big Change
I began my career as a personal trainer at the prestigious Personal Training Institute in New York City, and then honed my skills training CEOs and television personalities in a Manhattan gym.
In 1995 I brought my knowledge and experience to Los Angeles and opened Beach Physique Fitness and Nutrition. I have trained hundreds of women and men in my Hermosa Beach studio and have recently extended my reach nation-wide with my on-line fitness and nutrition programs, The Beach Physique Method and The Beach Physique 20 Pound Challenge.
