Liz Neporent: Liz’s first set of weights (actually, her brother’s) were made of blue plastic and filled with sand; when they started leaking sand all over the house, her mother relegated all weight lifting activities to the basement.
Since that time, Liz has graduated into a well-known corporate fitness consultant, designing and managing fitness centers worldwide. Along the way, Liz also was a personal trainer, received a master’s degree in exercise physiology, and got certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, National Strength and Conditioning Association, American Council of Exercise, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She is coauthor and author of several books, including Fitness For Dummies and Fitness Walking For Dummies and writes frequently for the New York Times, Family Circle, Shape, and others.
She currently hosts a daily internet show on eyada.com.

Suzanne Schlosberg: Suzanne’s writing career began her freshman year in college when she was assigned to cover a pre-season NBA game and found herself in a locker room interviewing a dozen, tall, muscular, naked Boston Celtics. She decided she liked this writing stuff. Suzanne went on to become a newspaper reporter and magazine writer. Now a contributing editor to Shape and Health magazine, Suzanne is the coauthor, with Liz Neporent, of Fitness For Dummies and the author of The Ultimate Workout Log. She is also an instructor in the UCLA Extension Certificate in Journalism program. Always happy when she has a barbell in hand, Suzanne has lifted weights in Zimbabwe, Morocco, Iceland, and Micronesia, among other locales. She is the women’s record holder in the Great American Sack Race, a quadrennial event held in Yerington, Nevada, in which competitors must run 5 miles while carrying a 50-pound sack of chicken feed.

Shirley Archer: Shirley is a former New York City attorney who traded the fast life for the fit life. A survivor of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome from stress and overworking, her recovery helped her to become a champion of fitness for health and to live fully in body, mind and spirit. She’s now a health educator and fitness specialist at the Health Improvement Program at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, the author of ten fitness and wellness books, an international trainer of fitness instructors, and a frequently quoted media spokesperson worldwide. Her master’s degree is in East Asian Studies from Harvard University, and she has special expertise in mind-body exercise. She’s a mind-body spokesperson for IDEA, author of a monthly mind-body news column, and a spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise. She’s certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, American Council on Exercise, and National Strength and Conditioning Association, among others. She’s also a certified Pilates teacher and yoga instructor. She’s created a number of corporate fitness programs, including Walking for Workplace Wellness, Fitness 9 to 5, and Stretching and Relaxation Tips for Workday Survival. Shirley believes that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and that you can live a longer, happier, and better life by choosing fitness every day.
