Myrna Brady, CEO of Myrna Brady Fitness & of Qameliyan Fitness & Lifestyle Consulting (QFLC). (Westchester, NY)
In the Fall of 2000 I was over 220+ pounds, married, no children, working over 60 hours a week on Wall St. I was 124 pounds when I graduated college seven years earlier. I had never been that heavy in my whole life, needless to say I was not very healthy. As result, I embarked upon a radical diet plan, which landed me in the hospital for over a week. During my stay my heart stopped for 3 seconds at one point, I took multiple neurological tests and more. It turned out my unhealthy lifestyle played an integral role in my illness. I promised myself that if I made it out of the hospital, I would change my lifestyle and “make fitness a part of my life”… That is how my journey into fitness began.
I am now the CEO of Myrna Brady Fitness, which is a personal training, group exercise and education business. I am also the founder and CEO of Qameliyan Fitness & Lifestyle Consulting (QFLC), we are a consulting company that offers fitness education and consulting. I have more than 20 years of combined Music, Business and Fitness experience. I have earned a Bachelors of Science degree from Hofstra University and currently pursuing a M.A in Sports & Exercise Psychology from Argosy University as well as my Performance Exercise & Fitness Nutrition Specialist credentials from NASM. As a national fitness presenter, certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I have been educated by some of the most recognized fitness certification bodies in the world: ACE, NASM, Spinning®, PHI Pilates, ECITS and the YMCA to name a few.
I have been a licensed school teacher for the East Coast Instructor Training School, an Instructor Trainer for ACE’s CPR, First Aid, AED program and a Corporate Regional Faculty Instructor for TSI/NYSC. I have also worked in a management capacity for many of the top tiered health clubs in the industry. I have also created several proprietary fitness programs; PiYoSol (mind-body program) Brady Gurl Boot Camp, SHWERk! (dance fitness program) and FITMOMMIE©, a program about pre and post natal fitness has been taught exclusively for Destination Maternity though out the Tri-State area. Overall, I have an undying passion and a desire to make fitness a part of EVERYONE'S life.
