“I like to remind my clients to put the same energy and commitment into fitness as you would your job.”
When it comes to working out, the former Broadway dancer and New York City Rockette has a straightforward philosophy: “I like to remind my clients to put the same energy and commitment into fitness as you would your job, your presentation at work, your thesis, your exams, and more,” she says. “When you’re in my room, don’t think about anything else except what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Work, your love life, your homework will all be waiting for you once you’re done with your workout.”
