Australia’s leading fitness guru, mother to six, the authors of 14 international best-selling books and the founder of her own fitness empire, there is nothing that Sharny Kieser can’t do! Through her 9 fitness and workout programs, with 5 more currently in the works, the renegade fitness expert has transformed the lives thousands of men and women globally by helping them smash their health and fitness goals and transform into their best physical shape. Sharny shot to stardom when her first book, Never Diet Again wasreleased to the public in June 2011. The book was an adaptation of a step-by-step ‘escape the diet trap’ program that they had created for their private clients. So successful was the program in changing people’s lives that clients literally begged Sharny to make it into a book, which would make it more accessible to friends and relatives overseas. After the release of Never Diet Again, Sharny realised that while very successful, it was just another solution, and looking around saw that there were thousands, if not millions of solutions for losing weight and getting healthy, but people were still getting “fatter and sicker”.
After much soul searching, Sharny concluded that losing weight wasn’t the problem; the motivation for losing weight was the problem. Fat and unhealthy was the norm; athletic and healthy was the minority. To say someone was fat had become offensive. To exercise was a chore.
That’s when they decided to write the book FITlosophy. In their words, it is “a collection of parables for athletes”. But it is more than that. It is a profound set of philosophical viewpoints that cut right to the heart of the human condition. Brutally honest, courageous, confronting, and often humorous, the stories told in this book reveal a part of the human psyche readers didn’t even know was there.
In January 2012, they collaborated with renowned artist Ayesha Henderson to create a children’s book that had “beautiful bright pictures and an easy to read, but important message that they could share with their kids”. Where Have All The Pixies Gone? was released in October 2012. Sharny has 14 international best selling books and 6 online fitness programs that people do from all over the world. They are regulars on daytime TV, radio and news all over the world for her honest opinion on life. Sharny and her husband Julius have 6 children that they travel the world with full time as nomads. They want to teach their children that a life of memories and experiences is more than possessions!
