Sherri Norige has been teaching group fitness since 2008. She started out as an actor, dancer, and singer in New York City. Some career highlights include the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular”, touring with The Music Man, some TV and film roles, and a commercial for Canon camera. While pursuing an acting career, Sherri started her professional fitness journey at the esteemed barre studio, Physique 57, where she built her chops, and taught a variety of classes and formats to New York’s elite. Soon thereafter, she got her Pilates mat certification from “Lindafit Pilates”, followed by her NASM CPT certification. With personal training now a part of her arsenal, she sought more information about how to fuel the body and garnered her Fitness Nutrition Specialist Certification as well.
Always hungry for more knowledge, she then attended culinary school at the Natural Gourmet Institute, now part of the Institute of Culinary Education. There, she not only learned cooking techniques and skills, but also had many courses in nutrition, healing foods, menu building, and recipe development. She “worked the line” at the “Little Beet Table” in Manhattan and then went on to personal chef for 2 years before moving out of the city. Upon arrival in the suburbs, she completed her college-accredited-certification as a Functional Medicine Health Coach, which afforded her even more insight into whole-self-health and positive psychology.
After the birth of her son, she also completed her 200-hour Yoga teacher certification with Kaia yoga. which has enlightened Sherri’s practice and teaching to include more philosophy and breath, or “pranayama” work. Additionally, it reaffirms the need for stillness, like meditation, in our lives as well as the need for movement.
