"My goal is to inspire."
Ellen Barrett, M.A. is "...the country's top fitness instructor," says SELF magazine because she personifies 21st century fitness, where the mind, body and spirit converge for more intelligent, efficient workouts. As a best-selling DVD creator, book author, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition graduate, she's a go-to-expert specifically regarding women and weight loss, Pilates, Fusion fitness, pre- and post-natal exercise and inspired wellness.
"Fitness is physical AND spiritual."
Sure exercise tones your tush but when it's done right it also makes the spirit soar! That's why Ellen began teaching group exercise while in college and never stopped, teaching all over the globe for Club Med in the Carribean, Crunch Gym in Los Angeles and NYC, Corporate America, the Kripalu Center and eventually at her very own studio in Connecticut.
"Exercise should always feel good."
Weight Watcher's hired Ellen as their fitness walking spokeswoman. LifetimeTV.com selected Ellen as their resident Fit Pro. Family Circle Magazine elected Ellen to their advisory board. FIT TV cast Ellen as lead instructor on All Star Workouts. Her most recent launches have been Prevention magazine's FLAT BELLY WORKOUT DVD's, and ELLEN BARRETT LIVE DVD series.
