Neghar Fonooni is just a regular girl who loves to cook real food, lift heavy stuff and enjoy the absolute heck out of life. As a fitness coach, writer, USAF veteran and mom, Neghar wears several hats and switches them out often. A Los Angeles native who spends most of her time split between Baltimore and NYC, Neghar loves to travel and especially enjoys figuring out ways to exercise in hotel gyms.
Coaching clients on nutrition and exercise is not only a passion, but a career that has been budding for 12 years-when she earned her first of many fitness certifications. In addition to co-founding Girls Gone Strong, Neghar currently runs an exclusive online coaching program, and teaches strength and kettlebell workshops all over the country. She is a SHAPE magazine blogger and is on the Fitness Advisory Board for Schwarzanegger.com. Neghar has also dabbled in fitness modeling, including Experience Life Magazine and several Men’s and Women’s Health DVDs.
Some of her favorite things include: reading, pull-ups, making dinner for friends, yoga, red wine, dark chocolate, quoting The Princess Bride, cuddling with her french bulldog, Samwise (aka Fat Hobbit), and watching animated films with her son. She is completely obsessed with Lululemon and talks more than most people you’ll ever meet.
