I am the founder and manager of the fitness concept BalletBeFit. As a former dancer who trained with the Royal Ballet, I bring my ballet training and knowledge of health and posture into the gym to help people who are struggling with their weight to build a strong, beautiful and, an elegant physique using graceful and controlled movements of ballet to gain balance, control and posture with workouts which will leave you feeling healthy and refreshed. As an author, speaker, and coach, I help people of all ages, shapes, and sizes get in and stay in excellent shape. As an advocate for a mindful approach to health and wellness, I believe it’s only through a change in lifestyle and mindset that you can be the success you are meant to be!
Through the building of my successful business BalletBeFit, I have recognized the importance of mindset in fitness and in building a sustainable and profitable business. A healthy mindset is a gateway to a healthy body, overcoming willpower depletion, negative self-talk, and being the best version of yourself.
With my wealth of experience as a coach, I have also realized the importance of mindset in helping people stand apart in their field. I now offer business mindset and wealth mastery programs to help educate people and help them learn valuable strategies on how to build a thriving business and to remain ahead and relevant in the incredibly competitive business world.
“Mindset Matters” brings you stories and experiences from incredible people around the globe — and provides the strategies to upgrade your mindset for success. Let’s start designing your mindset from the inside out, with your host Rachel Withers.
In the latest installment of Mindset Matters, Rachel is joined by Deborah Ruddy, a Registered Yoga Alliance Yoga Instructor and a qualified Anti-Gravity Aerial Yoga Instructor, to discuss the importance behind finding the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
Before entering the fitness industry, Deborah worked in the corporate world in both retail and finance. She’s no stranger to high-stress jobs and environments. It was these experiences that led Deborah to create Lila Fitness, which strives to recharge her clients by bringing balance to their mind, body, and spirit.
Deborah is also currently co-authoring “Don’t Wait in the Wings,” a book discussing how important it is to pursue your passion and not allow outside circumstances to hold you back, with Rachel.
