Fitness is my life. From the earliest days I had posters on my wall of Olympic Gymnasts and Famous Ballerinas. The body and its mastery have been a lifelong study before I even understood its significance, and extraordinary power.
I would watch the figure skaters and the women who would smile in the Miss America Pageant. I would watch the joy as beauty contestants waved from decorated floats in parades.
I danced as a child and excelled in acrobatics, by the time I was 9 I was a National Champion. By age eleven I was an International Title Winner and by age Fourteen I was part of the opening act in a Casinos Main Stage Show, opening the World’s Top Celebrities still revered today. I won Title after Title, Championship after Championship becoming an undefeated champion in the world of dance and acrobatics with 220 wins. I had the honor of performing in countries across the globe and I was privileged to Key – Note at the Olympics and at The World Cup as the Featured Speaker and at major international sporting blockbusters events.
As an actress I played a gymnast and an equestrian on TV and my acrobatics and contortion skills can be seen in movies and stage shows across the board. My most memorable performances include: The Flamingo Kid, Batman Returns, Boz Scagg’s Heart of Mine, Barnum, and Can–Can.
If you followed my career, you may know that in 2001 my car was hit by a drunk driver and my car exploded into a ball of flames, disintegrated and it was gone.
Would I have chosen to be in a car that blew up? Of course not, but it put me on a different path one of healing, self-discovery and self-care. I had to relearn everything I physically knew, and I had to master the art of the unlimited potential of the human body, recovery, design and physical excellence on every level of my life.
One year after basically being told by the top experts in the world that my career and my life as I knew it was over, I overcame every challenge and climbed to the top of The Great Wall in China in record time.
I went to train with the Chinese Acrobats and defying every conceivable challenge I came back to teach.
I was certified in every fitness modality that I could find, and I was asked to speak to doctors and physical therapists training them on what is a miracle, and the unlimited potential of the human body and life.
I went on to Train Trainers in fitness, and I opened my own Fitness, Wellness and Pilates Studios across the world. I went on to speak to groups of 500 to 5000 people Teaching the Mastery of the Human Body, I wrote books, and I made videos, and I went on TV to share all that I knew with as many people as possible.
I designed programs for pain free living, arthritis, kids, pregnancy, pilates, heart attack recovery, injury prevention, tri athletes, surfers, skiers, dancers, skaters and now, you.
Teaching fitness has been my life. I know and I believe in the Yes You Can because I did it. Since my resurgence I still, kept reaching high. In 2005 I became the Youngest Fitness Master in the World and I have been honored to be Inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame and into the Elite Black Belt Hall of Fame. I am a Seven-Time World Hall of Fame Inductee.
All this means I know how. I know how to achieve the Dream Body and the Dreamlife. I am living proof. Your body is ready, and it is waiting for you to believe in it. I know you can. I am here to help you to make each, and every one of your dreams to, come true
