I'm Linda,   

former pastry chef turned fitness pro

(Please don't judge me! I was young and needed the money.)

I just brewed some tea. Pull up a chair and stay a minute. Let's chat!

First, kudos for being you. Reaching the age of 50 is not for the faint of heart.

I’m 61, so I know of what I speak.

I often reminisce about the good old days, when my knees didn’t make walking down stairs top my list of “10 Most Painful Things Ever.” Went through menopause (geez, I hate that word… ) at 49 and lived to tell the tale.

And yes, I once worked for The Dark Side as a pastry chef (!) and bakery owner. Some call this ironic. Others say I created my own clientele.

I'll never tell. 

So what makes me legit?

I’m a fitness pro, a four-time certified trainer with over 20 years of experience. I’ve also spent the same amount of time writing fitness and health articles for hundreds of print and online publications (see my AS SEEN IN page for details). In the process, I’ve talked to the top leaders in the field of weight loss, fitness and health.

I even won a couple of awards.

I’ve also battled a long-term eating disorder and gone through several other “life lessons” I talk about in my blogs. Spoiler alert: It’s not pretty.

Through it all, I’ve learned this important fact: An Ageless Body isn’t about being skinny, being about to leap tall buildings in a single bound or outrun your grand-kids.

It’s about living and loving life and being your healthiest, fittest and happiest YOU.
