An English major at the State University of New York, New Paltz, Bonni Zipp began her career as a writer for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Quickly becoming passionate about the way muscles work, Bonni entered the fitness industry after marrying Mitchell and relocating to South Florida. She has been teaching group exercise classes in Broward County since 1981 and is certified through the reputable Aerobic Fitness Association of America, since its inception. As an advocate for geriatric wellness, she has been an instructor for the award winning SilverSneakers program since the mid 90s, as well as teaching senior fitness programs in gyms, assisted care facilities and nursing homes. Always sensing the CORE to be the center of all workouts, she became curious about Joseph Pilates and his methodology. With help from OneonOne Pilates in Fresno, California, she found her way to training in Pilates mat work at Polestar Pilates in Miami, FL, in 2001.
Bonni teaches a wide variety of group exercise classes and also does personal training with a handful of motivated and devoted clients. Her classes are noncompetitive, non-intimidating and easy to follow, while still insuring a great workout! She also combines her love of fitness and writing, in contributing articles for trade magazines such as Natural Muscle. Her sage advice will soon be found on thebeautybean.com, a free on-line magazine that will premier later this fall. With both sons grown, Bonni, her husband of 28 years, and their favorite 4-legged friends, live, work and play in Coral Springs, Florida. As her life mission is to spread the word on why “wellness works” Bonni is very excited to bring her knowledge and experience to YOU.
