SPLASH into JUNE 2011


SUMMER is HERE! I’ve got a BOOTYS Shakin Exclusive, Good Morning America, and more. ROCK IT OUT in June!



I was approached by GAP, to run a month long bootcamp for their entire company. With the way corporate climates are these days I’m so impressed that GAP was willing to invest in their employees with something so positive.

I want to applaud this company for believing in the people that work for them and understanding that fitness is a way to bring a company together. The BOOTCamp filled in record time and let it be known that when a group of people workout together it can create a bond that lasts long after the boardroom.

Thank you GAP! I look forward to kicking you’re A** all month and making your TEAM even more unstoppable… Corporate AMERICA Unit!

* MOTIVATION – Don’t let FEAR Rule you… RULE FEAR.

Taking the Leap. Should I… Shouldn’t I… EhhhHHhhH, meh? Do you have something in your life that you really want to make happen? I feel like most people do, especially if you’re a New Yorker.

What’s stopping you? Is it fear? What’s really scaring you…? These are the hard-core questions one must ask when they want to take anything in their lives to the next level. Your body, your job, your relationships…

Often times the things we Fear are not real at all… They are stories we make up in our head about our goals or our dreams to help use stay safe and cozy where we are. Because often times it’s better the devil we know than the devil we don’t know…

Taking it to the next level hurts, it’s scary and you might fail… BUT ask yourself what would your life feel like if you didn’t go after that dream 10 years from now? Would you have regrets?

Ego gets in the way, Money gets in the way, and Life gets in the way… These are all often side effects of fear. If you want something bad enough in this life you must believe in the magic of Your dreams. I believe that there’s something inside all of us that’s greater than any obstacle.

Take the Leap… I bet you’ll soar.

* QUOTE-Tastic

Who watched Oprah’s Last Show? I did… Geezzz, that woman helped raise a generation. I remember when I was in High School I watched an episode when she told her audience how crucial it was to follow your passion. I believe it was one of the first episodes that she began talk about of passion and “aha” moments. What she said resonated with me.

Oprah said – “Just follow your passion. People told me I couldn’t have this show because I was a big black woman. Don’t worry about what people think. People think lots of things and those “People” aren’t you. You were put on this planet for a reason. Find that thing you must do. That thing that makes your heart sing. Don’t worry about the money. The money will come… Just follow your passion.”

I remember thinking “Yeeahhh OPRAH! Now, what’s my passion…???” Even though my parents wanted me to be a lawyer among many other things a Fitness Professional NOT included… 🙂 That show helped give me the confidence to believe that I could possibly make Fitness a Career?! Thank you Oprah, you definitely had a HUGELY positive impact on my life.

Here’s my favorite quote from her final show… “Be responsible for the energy you bring to this place.” – Oprah Winfrey

Have a GREAT Month!

DAY 4 The Team came TOGETHER!

DAY 4, WEEK 2…. RECORD BREAKING Performances!

3minute 34second PLANK held by 7 campers! Carolyn wins the SHAKE IT for your life award… That was amazing mind over matter. PROUD.

SHANE ran like the freakin WIND in every competition with Schuler always hot on his trail.

Today there were all around stellar performances by each and every one of you. No matter what level you’re at you were bringing it to the best of your ability in all categories… AMAZING to watch.

I feel like The Team really came together on this sunny New York Morning.



WE ARE HALF-WAY through Camp People. Mentally I’ve found that over the years Bootys have the hardest time in Week 3.  You need to prepare yourself mentally and physically for this week. Because once Week 3 is over you only have two session left, the last one being RESULTS Day. I want you to CRUSH YOUR Test Scores from DAY 1… Annihilate them. NO MERCY.

How do you do that…. You put in the work now. EVERY SECOND COUNTS. That’s how I want you to participate in all your workouts and your life. What if you lived your life like you live your workouts at BOOTYCamp! GIVE 110%, Support the people around you from your heart, When something doesn’t go your way… Do you cry about it and quit?! HELL to the NO… When you get knocked down you GET your ASS right BACK UP with no hesitation. The most successful athletes and people I know on this planet do not hesitate in the negative. They focus on what they want and they do whatever it takes to get there. NO Hesitation, Get out of the doubt-zone as quickly as possible and onto the next opportunity to BRING IT (Right MARTY?!). You have a choice every day as to how you want to live your life.  Believe in the magic of what’s possible.

You are all getting stronger not only physically but also mentally… and that makes me proud.  It’s not about being the BEST it’s about bettering your best. What if you made your life about making every second matter? Do you think it would be extraordinary? I do.

I want you to think about what you want out of the FINAL two weeks of camp. Take it seriously… Make it matter. This is your opportunity to take it to the next LEVEL dudes. Sometimes the next level hurts, but that’s why it’s called the next level. Clearly  🙂

These are very inspiring words from an unlikely source… Take a look if you have the time – I believe in all of you.

TheBigGAME! Mananaaaaaaaaannnnnnn!


Who’s coming? Carl and Annabel are?! Lets be rowdy and ridiculous Toggetthheerrrrr!

That’s all I got… Today was good day!

Thank YOU!



PS I LOVE OPRAH. Loved our discussion this morning… Gayle better watch her bacckkkkkk, hahhahaha!

DR OZ Picture

Happy Fall! October is my favorite time of year… Jackets come back, people get pumpkins, and you’ll definitely be hearing a little Thriller in spin.  Trick or TREAT, smell my feet give me something good to eat, if you don’t I don’t care… Candy’s bad for teeth and I’d rather workout anyway, HA! Happy Halloween!!! 🙂


Two weeks ago I made my first Expert Fitness appearance on the Dr OZ Show.  He’s sooo charismatic and hottie, who knew? 🙂  The segment was entitled “BOUNCING off the YEARS!”- A Trampoline Workout that‘ll make you feel like a kid again.

OZ and I were able to get the entire audience to “Raise The Roof,” while bouncing on a mini-tramp.  Right after the segment the Producer said she’d be asking me back… Jackie Warner, who? YAY! aaaAAAHHHHH 🙂

I’m not sure of the exact airdate… but when I find out I’ll let you know. Thank you Stefanie, you’re an Angel Woman from Heaven.

“Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it… You can make it so.”

NIKE, Serena Williams, & ME

What a whirlwind of a month.  Nike Women featured lil’ old me on their website, WOOOO! Thank you Sarina… She totally understands me after only spending two hours together. That’s a GREAT reporter! 🙂

What she wrote in the article is it’s exactly how I choose to live my life. There’re 365 days in a year, 12 months in a year, about 30 days in a month, 7 days in a week, 24 hours in a day.  How are you going to attack your life?  Are you in it to WIN IT… or are you sitting on the sidelines watching other people play?

I have HUGE long terms goals, goals I’d be embarrassed to share with you … Yearly goals, monthly goals, weekly goals, and daily goals.  Everyday I set out to accomplish these goals to be the best I can not only in my fitness career but also in my life. I do my best to give every person I pass on a smile, a “hi,” workout, eat right; give the BEST 45min/1 hour sessions my little body can handle. To make the world a better place for others and me.

AAaaaannndddd yes at the end of the day I’m tired, sometimes exhausted…  We’re all exhausted because we’re all going for it in one way or another. If you’re going to go for it you might as well go after your passion, it makes it a heck of a lot easier to stick to it when the going gets tough 🙂

All we can ever do is our best. When we do our best consistently, when we’re working towards something that makes our heart sing… I truly believe miracles happen.

Last month I met Serena Williams through Nike annndd I was the featured Fitness Expert on The Dr OZ Show. I filmed a segment in 30 Rock, a building I’ve been trying to get into for a llloonnggg time. When I first moved to New York in 2002 I interviewed to be a NBC page… They didn’t hire me. My contact at the Today Show hasn’t quite been able to get me on… 30 Rock has been my Fort Knox. But something shifted on September 25th, 2009. I cracked the code.  It was a beyond surreal moment when I was standing on set with Dr Oz filming that Fitness Segment… It took me 7 years to get into that building. 7 years of never giving up.  My hard work and persistence finally gave me a little luck last month. It felt like a victory, it felt glorious.

Every day we have a choice to make our lives exactly what we want them to be. I definitely don’t have all the answers but this is my truth. I believe that anything is possible if we can muster of up the courage to pursue it.  Your time is right now… Never stop believing it’s possible.

Yes, the rumors are true. I will not be returning to my weekend classes at 19th Street.  This was an INCREDIBLY difficult decision for me. I loooovveee teaching for you on Sundays… BUT I know come fall I’ll have a TON going on personally and professionally making it impossible to be consistent for you. To sub out classes more than I am there is not something I’ll ever do to my TEAM. I ask you to be consistent and BRING IT 100% every time I see you, I must do the same.

I hope you weekend warriors will find me during the week, as always I promise to consistently deliver a POWERFUL punch of Energy and SWEAT!

For more details check out my Fall Equinox Schedule –

Thank YOU to 19th Street Sundays for 4 years of love and sweat.


I’ll only be missing 2 classes in October. If you ever have a question about whether I’m teaching a class just shoot me a direct email, I’ll BB you back a Y or an N 🙂
