Meet Shandi Rooney.  Shandi was born and bred in small town Kansas, where she then moved to Los Angeles to begin her fitness career working as a physical therapy assistant in Beverly Hills, CA.  During this time she started her own personal and small group fitness training business.  With the success and hype about this training method, she was approached by Bravo’s Jackie Warner and NBC’s Jillian Michaels to personal train at their Beverly Hills, CA  private gym.

After working with the best in the industry and constantly tweaking her workouts, she developed the StudioMixx system -utilizing cutting edge forms of exercise to maximize calorie burn and sculpt the entire body by systematically mixing various elements of fitness in one hour.

I was born…

in Scott City, KS.

My favorite thing about is…

that Arizona is the healthy and active lifestyle.  The opportunity for amazing indoor/outdoor activities.

I’m listening to…

“old school” country music…Always tells a story and brings back memories.  Good for the soul!

My family is…

my purpose.  My reason to always be the best I can be.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be….

Oprah.  She has found the way to live a balanced life.

One thing I could not live without is…

the love from my husband and children.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an elementary school teacher.

I’m inspired by…

my mom.  She played the role of mom, wife, business owner, and my cheerleader for life.

The one person who motivates me is…

The people that motivate me are the women that come to StudioMixx and give their all for one hour so that they can better their lives.  They are the true motivators with their amazing energy and drive to be the best they can be.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to universally educate young people on the lifestyle benefits of healthy living, and motivate everyone to take be the version of themselves

The perfect day would be…

a great workout followed by spa day, dinner and wine with my husband, and ending the day snuggled up with my kids in bed.

My first job was…

at age 12, washing dishes at my parent’s restaurant so I could pay for my first volleyball camp.

My favorite escape…

my personal workouts when I get into the zone and I push my body to be the best it can be.

My life is…

simple, full of love, friends and family.

I am currently working on…

branding the MIXX technique.  I am releasing 3 new workout DVD’s, three online workouts, and a second StudioMixx location.

Always…

challenge yourself.

Never…

forget where you came from while on your journey through life.

Favorite quote…

is “The best of life happens outside your comfort zone.”

My biggest dream…

is global expansion.  Improving health and changing lives around the world by opening more studios, producing more DVD’d, and streaming live fitness classes

My pet peeve(s)…

is not challenging or pushing the mind and body to be the best.  Settling for average when one can be outstanding.
