I met Danielle as a health consultant for Stewart Filmscreen. At the time I was a member of a gym but never really went. I really needed some motivation. Well Danielle definitely has a way of motivating you. She is not one of those trainers that just pushes you (Like the ones on Biggest Loser). She motivates you by making you interested and "wanting" to exercise or change your eating habits. I thihk that is the best way since just having someone push you requires them to do it constantly or you will fall off the wagon.
She has supported me by answering my questions about foods and exercises. She met me at the gym on a weekend to create a exercise plan. When she does not have the answers to my questions she will definitely find the answers and get back to you.
Since I met Danielle I have changed my life style, my eating habits, and my attitude about exercising. I still have some hurdles but she has taught me how to make it fun and interesting.
Thank you for all of the great tips, information, and always being there to motivate.

About two years ago Danielle started a well-being program at Stewart Filmscreen Corp. For more than 20 years I was working for different companies and I was pretty sure that this initiative will be forgotten in few short months. I have seen plenty of good ideas to fade away and was watching skeptically on the side lines how this one will do… February this year - Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K – 48:35 min (my first one), few months after that - PV Marathon – 4:23 hours (my first one), two weeks ago – the Half Dome in Yosemite with my family in a day (17 miles round trip, 4,800 ft elevation gain), improved diet, gone lower back pain and accumulated tension on my right wrist, a lot of stress left on the road, no sick days called for the last year and few new friends. I was 24 hour Fitness member for long time, but Danielle motivated and challenged me to accomplish things that otherwise I wouldn’t do on my own. Thanks to the management for initiating the program and very special thanks to Danielle Vindez for executing it.

I was in my late 70's when I first met Danielle and I was thinking that I was too old and that was why everything was getting so hard for me to to do.
But I quickly learned differently. Under her guidance I lost some 15 pounds ( which I have not yet gained back after several years), got into a good workout program, took responsibility for my own self, and began to feel good again. One of the best decisions I have made since retiring from work.

As President of Stewart Filmscreen Corp I was interested in enhancing the health of our employee’s lives. I live the benefits of exercise and proper nutrition and wanted to share this quality of life and productivity tool with the SFC family. Danielle is generous with her time and is truly passionate about seeing my company thrive. Define Yourself Health Coaching helps us to inspire our employees to think positively about themselves and take charge of their own health.
