Healthy Balance Fitness in 2007. After co-owning a fitness company
for six years, she recognized a specific need among women who were
struggling to gain balance in their work, family and personal lives.
As someone who works daily to maintain this balance in her own life,
she can directly relate to her clients' needs, and is a source of
support and inspiration to them.
Healthy Balance Fitness represents the perfect combination of professional
and personal passion for Nora, who is an Exercise Physiologist,
Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness By Phone Coach. Prior to
opening Healthy Balance Fitness, Nora was co-founder of State of
the Heart Fitness, a wellness organization dedicated to empowering
people to meet their health and fitness goals.
Before opening State of the Heart Fitness, Nora was an Exercise
Physiologist at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Santa Monica, where
she worked in cooperation with and alongside doctors, dietitians,
and physical therapists. Nora enjoyed teaching her clients to create
and maintain healthy lifestyles, and developed the Pritikin Personal
Coaching program, which helped them receive ongoing support.
Nora received her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science,
with an emphasis in Physical Therapy, from the University of Arizona.
In addition to her degree, Nora is a Certified Personal Trainer,
Master Fitness By Phone® Coach, and an American Red Cross Certified
Water Safety Instructor. Worthwhile Referral Sources (aka Women's
