Angeles for 2007 by Elite Traveler Magazine.  

JJ vividly reminds us that the word ‘fitness’ is not just about
the state of one’s physical body, but also the factors which
determine a person’s overall well being.

And, for JJ, the key components in all these areas are
‘invisible’ — balanced support structures of nutrition, emotional
centeredness and health. A favorite of journalists and the media
for her depth of knowledge and vibrant personality, JJ, a
contributing expert for Get Active Magazine, has also been featured
in many national magazines, including Shape, Fitness, Muscle and
Fitness HERS, Elegant Bride, and Women’s Health as well as appeared
on NBC, CBS, Fox 11 and KTLA. She is also a video expert for
About.com and regular contributor for The Daily Love.

JJ launched her professional career in 1996 as the Foundations
Director for the New York Sports Club, where she designed
curriculum and in-house certification for new and previously
uncertified fitness trainers. She has also been certified by the
American Council on Exercise (ACE), International Sports Science
Association (ISSA), National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)and
the Resistance Training Specialist Program (RTS).

With a focus on biomechanics, JJ has lectured for The Learning
Annex and as a featured speaker for New York Times Bestselling
Author of The Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Ecker’s Peak
seminars, as well as corporate clients, including
Pacific Gas and Electric, Hanson Engineering, and Jostens, Inc. She
is the Wellness Expert for KFC International, the Health and
Fitness Expert for the National Association of Entrepreneur Moms,
and a Fitness Expert for Nourishing Wellness Medical

She has been working in the health and wellness industry for 15
years, as a fitness trainer with a knack for helping her clients
become more self-aware and self-empowered through her ability to
quickly identify and pinpoint problem areas, and then create simple
solutions involving exercise, nutrition and mindset changes. She is
the Host of the new iTunes Podcast Show Fit 2 Love: Physical,
Emotional and Spiritual Fitness for the Happy Life You Deserve
which is six day a week video and audio show.

What sets JJ apart from her Celebrity Fitness counterparts is
the holistic approach to getting results. Over the last fourteen
years she has studied, used and applied Positive Psychology,
Neuro-Linguistic  Programming (NLP), Eye Movement
Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom
Technique (EFT), Law of Attraction, Quantum Physics, Non Violent
Communication, Imago Therapy, and Hypnotherapy. JJ Flizanes has
proven that she’s not only an expert in matters of the body and
fitness—she’s an insightful and provocative author who delivers a
timely message about matters of the heart.
