Our guest, Valli McRoberts Weiss founded ValliFitness because, "I believe that physical and mental well-being is the foundation for a long, happy, healthy and successful life”. She has thirty years experience in the science of movement, as a dancer, a group exercise instructor, and a personal trainer. She tells us that her specialty and favorite clients are those who, "consider themselves exercise resistant…I found that I had an affinity for those who were timid or insecure about their ability to move and were intimidated by exercise classes and gyms. Personal training is perfect for them”. Valli started her In-home Personal Training business 1986 and says,”It is really a fun job and I meet the most amazing people.Many of my clients have been with me for more than 20 years”. Valli’s latest challenge is, "a joyful one-how, to stay fit enough to be a grandparent….holding, carrying, and chasing after little ones requires a specifically targeted workout”. She has written and published her first book,” Are You Fit Enough to be a Grandmother?”Valli, in her mid sixties, leads 70 mile group bike rides to and up Bear Mountain!
