Honor your body and it will give back to you tenfold. That is Kacy Duke Fitness!
Kacy currently resides in New York City and Los Angeles. was born April 13th, 1989 in Bhopal, India, a small town in the mountains of central India. Growing up, I was out of shape and overweight because working out never concerned me. At 14 years old, I realized it was time to finally take action and work on my body.
I started out at a small gym near my area and exercised 3-4 hours a day. Day by day, my passion grew but in those three years I experienced something I never expected – I became fatter.
Something was wrong, so I started researching body types. Through my research, I discovered that my body type was very different and my nutrition had to change.
After this epiphany, everything about my workout evolved. I stopped basic lifting and transitioned to boot camps, running 10 km or more, along with other high intensity training exercises. Within months I saw results, and people started asking me for work out and diet tips.
Sometime later, I moved to Mumbai and worked as a trainer in various gyms (Nautilus and Gold’s Gym). This included a stint at True Fitness, one of the best gyms in India, where I established my roots as a celebrity trainer. Many were impressed with my appearance and I was approached to be a model in many magazines, including the cover of Men’s Health.
My work as a trainer was my passion, but to really pursue it I founded my own fitness company — YK Fitness Zone, in Delhi, India. After, I moved to Dubai to work at Fitness First, a gym where I was given the opportunity to train many high profile people.
My ultimate goal is to bring my passion for fitness to America and compete in Natural Bodybuilding competitions, such as Muscle Mania. I’m always open to learning more, and hope to continue my education throughout lifPhilip Bergman, founder of MindBody Fitness, has been in the health and fitness industry for 25 years.

‘Body and Brain Overhaul’ presenter, Paul Taylor, CEO of Personal Training Academy, Acumotum and the Body Brain Performance Institute, is a former Royal Navy Aircrew Officer, an exercise physiologist and nutritionist who has designed his own system of evidence-based fitness science, called ‘Scientific Holism’. He is an irreverent, charismatic international speaker and educator whose style makes for riveting television.
Holistic health is ‘Taylor-ed’ to the individual
Eight years as an Airborne Anti-Submarine Warfare Officer and Helicopter Search-And-Rescue Crew member has armed ex British Naval Officer Paul Taylor with the skills and personal qualities to excel in his current career. Since his arrival in Australia in 2004, Paul has established himself as an internationally recognised educator, expert, innovator and entrepreneur in the fitness industry. He is the developer of BioAge testing and is the founder of Australian companies Personal Training Academy Global (PTA Global) and corporate health educator the Human Performance Institute (HPI).
Paul is an accredited and practicing Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist who combines his university education with an enthusiasm for neuroscience, quantum physics and positive psychology. He has developed a system which he has describes as ‘Scientific Holism’, a holistic approach to health and wellbeing that integrates physical and mental analysis to develop evidence-based fitness programs.
“Australia has the best registration process for fitness certification and qualification,” says Paul. “Integrating science-based solutions for health and wellbeing raises the benchmark of the fitness industry in Australia which then raises standards on a global scale.” In 2008, Paul was identified as one of the top international fitness educators and selected to present at industry conference ‘Meeting of the Minds’ in the US. Paul was also recently appointed as Adjunct Professor of Functional Neuroscience at The University of San Francisco.
At PTA Global, Paul has united 16 of the world’s top fitness industry educators to develop a career pathway for fitness instructors and personal trainers. “We are giving our students the opportunity to have a career in fitness rather than just working in a job at a gym; this transient nature of the industry is a major issue facing health clubs everywhere,” says Paul. This will result in global standardisation of fitness education, giving personal trainers higher levels of skill which will be recognised by industry registration bodies Fitness Australia and Kinect.
Paul also runs ‘Lifestyle and Stress Management’ programs through his business, the Human Performance Institute. Specialising in Executive Performance, HPI facilitates corporate health programs for developing physical, emotional and cognitive resilience. His ‘Sustainable Leadership’ courses also integrate BioAge Testing and functional brain testing.
In addition to BioAge testing and crucial to the holistic nature of his ‘Scientific Holism’, Paul is a partner of functional brain testing developer the Brain Resource Company in Australia. Facilitated by My Brain Solutions, a service which performs individual and validated online measurement and assessment of mental wellbeing, the program also provides solutions for maximising mental peak performance.
As an experienced international fitness industry presenter, Paul provides his expert commentary at seminars, conferences and in the media. His personal interests mirror his professional passions and are all things health and fitness. To relax, Paul enjoys tai chi and playing football, boxing, weight training, squash and is a PADI advanced diver. His past is peppered with travel adventures in 42 countries including volunteer work on Kibbutz Revivim in Israel and a three week unsupported trek in the Amazon jungle.

Presenters Joyce Vedral is a legend in her own time!! In fact, in many ways, it was Joyce who gently edged women into daring to pick up weights for the first time. Yes. Joyce is responsible for getting women from Iowa to work out-as their bodybuilding sons stood by in awe. “Mom, I can’t believe you’re doing biceps curls” became a familiar cry.
But who is Joyce Vedral and how did she become a fitness expert? Joyce, a PhD in English Literature (New York University), taught in the New York City school system, grades K-12, and then became a professor of English Literature, teaching on the college level. As the years went by, the pounds packed on until she began to be embarrassed to stand in front of her class. After trying many failed diets and workout plans, she consulted with bodybuilders and experimented with their techniques, reinventing them for “real people” (specifically women, then later for men). Shortly thereafter, she became a certified personal trainer and later, put her secrets into book, video and DVD form.
But that’s just the beginning. From the time Joyce first appeared on the Sally Jesse Raphael show in 1991 to the present, her books, videos and DVDS have sold nearly two million copies. Her books have been on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists four times and have been bestsellers in Australia and several other countries.
So what is Joyce’s secret to success. To put it bluntly, “she’s for real.” If Joyce says something, you can take it to the bank. A Bronx native, she pulls no punches and knows how to get to the point. What you see is what you get. As she will let you know, her five foot body is perfectly proportioned, but not perfect. Joyce says, “I came in last in my early thirties when I foolishly entered a beauty contest.” She likes to tell the story about how her Russian family is overweight and look like boxes on wheels. Well, some of them now follow her routines, so the thought of thinking of themselves as boxes is a thing of the past!!
Joyce says, “I answer every letter and every email because I am thrilled to be able to share the secret of how to get in shape and STAY in shape. But not only that. I’m talking to myself when I talk to these women (and men too). I worked two jobs and was a single mother when I invented my workouts. I write for those who have lives—who don’t have all day to spend working out. I write for people who want a workout that gets the most bang for their workout buck!
Joyce’s daughter, Marthe, stars with her in her DVDS. She is a sought after guest and has appeared frequently on Oprah, Montel Williams, and Today. In addition, she is in-demand on the lecture circuit. In additin to her fitness books and DVD’s, Joyce has also written the popular motivational books "Get Rid of Him," and Look In, Look Up, Look Out.
