as seen on Bravo's WORKOUT and ExerciseTV
I've been featured as an entertaining fitness expert on many TV, radio and online shows.
I love to share fitness tips and often interview other healthy living experts as a freelance writer for Vital Juice - a free daily email that shares the latest must-read information about new workouts, healthy eateries, spas and gurus.
I recently put together a workout guide to help all those people that I can't see one-on-one. If you'd like to check it out, just click on the picture below. There's even a FREE two-week plan just for taking a look.

"I have tried so many different ways to lose weight and get healthy, but nothing ever worked for me. Finally I decided to get serious and that's what led me to Zen. Working with Zen has absolutely changed my life. Our workouts are one of the highlights of my week. She's helped me get in touch with the strong, confident, sexy woman that I am! I love that I can trust her and I know that she really cares about how well I'm doing. With Zen's support I have lost 40 pounds and even more inches, and we're just getting started! She has really helped me adopt a healthy way of living. Thank you Zen! "
