Angela founded Body Inspired Fitness in 2003 on the belief that anybody, anywhere, of any age, size, & fitness level can be in a truly healthy, happy, and vibrant place. A certified fitness trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Endurance Sports Trainers Association, Angela has spent the past eleven years helping others to make fitness a permanent fixture in their lives.

The longest running outdoor fitness program in West Los Angeles, Body Inspired Fitness camps boasts a ninety-eight percent return rate, with clients coming back every session for Angela’s contagious energy, candid perspective, and fresh workouts.

Angela encourages her clients to listen to, respect, and honor their body – right where it is today. Her goal is that her students use their workouts as an opportunity to get to know their bodies better, and to use their exercise time as a chance to practice being nice to themselves, feeling good and being proud of their workouts! In our daily life we force, stress, push, and struggle our way into attaining results & being “better”. Instead, Angela encourages her students to slow down, listen, and connect – completely transforming the standard approach of what it means to become fit.

“Exercise is the one thing in life where you have the power to make it work YOUR WAY. Your approach and your results are completely up to you. It’s time for us to redefine what it means to exercise. For me, exercise is my chance to be completely selfish. Staying in my body, with my thoughts, and listening to my breath. I use my own workouts as a chance to work on “my stuff” – all that crap I struggle with, think about, and want to transform. I don’t show up to my sweat session ready for a fight. I show up ready to have a conversation. An open, loving, and intimate conversation. My goal in life is to inspire others to use their workouts as a chance to work on themselves from the inside out using our single greatest tool – our breath.”

Angela’s customized instruction gives each person a unique and personal experience, one where the biggest shifts often come from the tiniest changes. She invokes an intellectual curiosity in her clients, challenging them to learn about their bodies and trust that THEY know whats best for them.

In addition to her local Santa Monica based fitness programs Angela has done some other fancy stuff…

In 2011 Angela co-authored “90-Days To A Stronger Body & Deeper Connection with Your Daughter,” an at home fitness program for moms and daughters available for sale on Amazon. Even though Angela is not a mother, she took her extensive fitness training experience working with teen girls & wrote a book to help both moms & daughters realize that anything is possible through the power of exercise! Check out to get more details!

Staying true to her founding belief, Angela offers phone & video consultations to support anyone, anywhere on their quest for better health! She will open the door to a supportive and focused conversation that will help you identify what is getting in your way of being inside the best version of your body.

Also available is Angela’s 6 Day SLAM Plan, an instantly downloadable eBook complete with her exact meal plan, recipes, workouts, how she eats, food timing, hydration schedule, shopping lists, and food planner.

In addition to her highly successful fitness boot camps, Angela has written inspirational articles, stories & workouts for Fitness magazine,,,, New Balance, Things to Love Right Now, Curvy Girl Health, and Adios Barbie.

    There's no one more motivating and entertaining than Angela Parker. Her class will get you in the best shape of your life while motivating you to succeed in all areas of your life, and the best part is...IT'S FUN!!! I call it gym-class on steroids. Every day is different so you're NEVER bored and the (mostly) women in the class are all so supportive of each other. I always leave class feeling better than I did when I got there. It's a must try!

    I'll keep it simple: if you want to learn to love yourself, I mean really love yourself, inside, outside and everything in between, take this class and meet this woman. Not only through her workouts does she re-wire your brain to flush out the "I can't do it's" and bring in the "Whoa! I didn't know I had that in me!", she will take a metaphorical mirror, make you hold it up in front of yourself, pick out all the WONDERFUL, REDEEMING things about your body and shut out everything else.

    I'm still learning and digesting the following lesson but I never even tried to address it until I took her class: YOU ARE ENOUGH, SIMPLY THAT. LOVE YOURSELF AND EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. PUSH YOUR BODY AND ALWAYS EXPECT MORE BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY WAY WE GROW. Well, I guess that's three lessons. The bottom line is, why wouldn't you want to live life in the best way you can and the longest that you can..... loving your your mind, your body, your being. What's the alternate option? Be brave and ask that question. We love you Angela. xx
