IDEA Member Spotlight

Michael Feigin
Brooklyn, New York
Member Since 2001

“I realized a while ago that all the different theories and fads in diet and fitness are very confusing, even for the most well-intentioned exercisers,” says fitness professional and entrepreneur Michael Feigin. “So I set about creating a radio show that would inform and educate people in an entertaining way.” He co-hosts his show with wife and business partner, Lawson Harris, and finds great satisfaction in sharing his insights and information with a broad audience. Feigin and his wife also created a Pilates certification program that has helped hundreds of professionals improve their skill set. “We have created a very nurturing and familiar environment, and we keep the classes small.”

Apalachicola, Florida
Member Since 2007

“There isn’t a gym in the town in which I live, so I provide only at-home, one-on-one personal training and Pilates instruction,” explains Aimee Marie Capps, personal trainer and mother of two. Recently, Aimee decided it was important for her to expand her reach by offering inexpensive personal training in small groups for those who cannot afford one-on-one sessions, and also to private group sessions for her family. “Three times per week I go to my parents’ home and teach an hourlong exercise class for my parents, two of my aunts and any other relative who wants to come. They all feel great afterward, and so do I.”
