Qualifications: Has a B.A. in Physical Education and an M.A. in Exercise Science from California State University. IDEA's 1993 Instructor of the Year.
Personal History: Fitness has always been part of my lifestyle. I grew up with an athletic father and three brothers - sports and fitness was a daily routine. I raced motorcycles in high school, did bodybuilding in college, and finally taught fitness on TV and in workshops. I live in California with my husband, two dogs, and a kitten.
Workout Philosophy: There is no such thing as the perfect body. Learn to work with what you have. Your body is your greatest asset; take care of it and it will take care of you.
Sucess Story: Amy was 33 years-old and had struggled with a weight problem for "more years than I can remember." She finally bought one of my 'Buns of Steel' videos. She wrote to tell me that she'd seen a "huge difference in my body and my self-esteem."
