More About the Author
Jackie Warner, fitness expert, gym owner, television star and entrepreneur, instills passion into every aspect of her life. Fitness has always been a part of her life - as an accomplished childhood equestrian to collegiate athlete, Jackie built a strong base of experience and knowledge in both exercise and nutrition.
From a small town, Midwestern girl, to a self made millionaire by age 22, Jackie used her need for excellence and passion for creativity to become driven and diligent within the world of business. She found her first calling in the fitness industry while working as a writer for Warner Brothers. "I realized I had a much stronger purpose when I successfully turned a co-colleagues life around through diet, counseling and training. I was hooked and decided then and there to change career direction completely." Wasting no time, Jackie began revolutionizing the fitness industry by being one of the first to offer medical treatments within her multi-discipline wellness center in Beverly Hills called Lift. She also pioneered the concept of incorporating exercise therapy into traditional medical insurance plans.
Jackie's next endeavor was Sky Sport & Spa, a sports medicine and fitness club in Beverly Hills which she founded in 2002. Expanding on the multi-discipline concept, Jackie offers members personal training, nutritional counseling, chiropractic care, exercise classes and physical therapy - all within a glass-enclosed penthouse space featuring a breathtaking 360° view of Los Angeles.
Clients weren't the only people inspired by Jackie. Bravo's television network hired Jackie to be the star of her own reality series, entitled Work Out. The show launched in 2006 with rave reviews, offering the audience a glimpse inside Jackie's professional and personal life. On April 15th at 11:00pm the third season begins, which Jackie has nicknamed "Full Circle", as a result of her own personal struggles and triumphs that she encounters.
Work Out was also the perfect outlet to introduce SkyLab, Jackie's all-inclusive life-changing camp designed for overweight clients. "Come stay with me for a week and I will change your body, your mind and your life!" SkyLab offers a controlled atmosphere in which guests make serious commitments to intense exercise and a sugar-free diet. SkyLab clients also undergo therapy to help understand their challenges and set goals, as well as extensive teaching seminars on how to live in the real world.
Jackie also believes that a strong support network is a crucial factor in successful weight loss and she encourages SkyLabbers to forge bonds with one another after they have completed the program.
In addition to Sky Sport & Spa, Work Out and SkyLab, Jackie designed her own line of workout wear also called SkyLab Brands, which launched in 2007 nationwide at Paiva stores and contracted for sales at Home Shopping Network in 2008. "I couldn't find exercise clothes that looked trendy, felt comfortable and allowed me to leave the gym and go out for lunch or meet friends after work. I use ultra soft, pima cotton for ultimate comfort coupled with fun edgy graphics inspired by my Los Angeles lifestyle."
Jackie's Work Out DVD will hit the shelves on May 20th ($14.98)! Jackie states, "The DVD is unique in that the workout truly mimics a personalized one-on-one training session with me. Function, Form, and Fatigue are the goals and the format is highly personalized, so that viewers feel as if they were right here at Sky Sport training!" Another one of Jackie's endeavors include the introduction of her own protein shake and energy bar - both low in sugar and calories. With all this in the works, Jackie is a role model for multi-tasking.
Jackie's newly redesigned website (www.JackieWarner.com) is the ideal headquarters for viewing her many projects and passions. The website provides comprehensive fitness and nutrition information, along with the opportunity to create customized workouts. The online store will sell all of Jackie's workout wear, exercise DVDs, protein shakes and energy bars, among other fitness accessories. Jackie Warner has raised the bar for wellness and continues to pioneer new concepts in fitness and nutrition.
