Harney first became interested in health and fitness during her freshman year of college. She lost 40 pounds after embarking on a total lifestyle change and has managed to keep it off since then (minus birthing two babies). As a dancer, she instantly fell in love with group fitness and became certified to teach. Since then, she’s instructed Spin, Zumba, BODYPUMP, barre, yoga, and boot camp classes.
Harney is especially passionate about helping postpartum mamas regain their fitness and strength in a safe and effective way. She created the Post Baby Bod 12-week fitness plan and also developed Fit Guides based on personal goals and workout preferences.
She lives in Tucson, AZ, with her pilot husband, two daughters, and two dogs. Join the Fitnessista community on Instagram and Facebook.
