Jackie Kennedy’s Personal Fitness Training Program Revealed

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

As many of you know, one of the highlights of my career was the privilege of training the former first lady, who was an inspiration to me in the way she embodied graceful aging, fitness and beauty.  With the release of the new book and accompanying recordings, "Jacqueline Kennedy:  Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy", we get a more personal view of her outlook on life.

Jackie O was very clear in her goals and in what she hoped to achieve through fitness training.  At the age of 60, she sought my help to strengthen her body so that she could continue to enjoy all the activities of her normal, energetic lifestyle.  Her proactive approach to aging sends a positive message to all of us.

For an inside look at her personal fitness routine and how she made it manageable in a busy schedule, please listen to the free audio.
