Paula Skinner

Holiday, FL 34691

My fitness career began over 25 years ago in San Diego, CA. I was one of the first IDEA members and also one of the first instructors certified in 1986. At that time nobody knew what to expect. There weren’t any study guides or manuals. In 2009 I updated my ACE personal trainer certification, taking the exam for a second time.
After moving from California, I opened a fitness studio, Beat Street Aerobics, in Wallingford, CT. I became a presenter of continuing education workshops offering AFAA and ACE credits to other instructors. As an AFAA examiner I critiqued other instructors during the AFAA certification process. I represented the American Heart Association as a speaker on health topics and led many successful fund raising events.
Today, I have a busy personal training business and teach a variety of group fitness classes in Palm Harbor Florida. Some of my most interesting recent projects include: creating Bolly Fitness an "East Meets West Workout", writing fitness articles for Destination Safety Harbor Magazine and presenting a Zumba Class to over 100 women attending a huge pajama party.
Later, Paula moved to CT where she opened her own fitness studio, Beat Street Aerobics. She became an AFAA Certified Group Instructor and was hired by AFAA as an examiner to critique other instructors during testing procedures. She represented the American Heart Association as a speaker on health topics and led many successful fund raising events.
Paula went on to open, Creative Muscle, a company offering fitness workshops and seminars to corporations and other fitness instructors.
Today, Paula has a busy personal training business and teaches a variety of group fitness classes at Suncoast Pilates, Innisbrook Golf Resort, and Baycare Wellness Center located in Pinellas County, Florida. Some of her most interesting recent projects include: creating Bolly Fitness an "East Meets West Workout", writing fitness articles for Destination Safety Harbor Magazine and presenting a Zumba Class to over 100 women attending a huge pajama party.
