Simone De La Rue
Simone De La Rue began training in classical ballet at the age of three and has enjoyed a successful dance career spanning over two decades, including numerous performances on Broadway, London’s West End and her native Australia. Simone’s initial desire to create a revolutionary exercise technique was to safeguard against injuries. By providing a solid foundation based on dance, she avoided the habitual wear and tear. Clients not only avoid injury, but avoid boredom. Possessing a strong passion for such an art form Simone wanted to share this joy with her clients both in a private and group forum. Simone opened her first studio in 2011 and is the creator of the Body By Simone method. She employs over 30 trainers, all certified in this dance based interval training program. Her fitness empire is expansive including: two Los Angeles studios, one NYC studio, three DVDs, an online streaming service, a clothing line, a co-branded shoe with Newton Running, and a TV show on the E Network. Simone is also the author of “The 8-Week Total Body Makeover Plan” available both digitally and in hard copy. Body By Simone has received endless praise. The New York Times called BBS, "The Girlfriend Workout”, and, in 2016, Forbes Magazine called Body By Simone, “Hollywood’s Hottest Workout Empire”. BBS has 70K followers on Instagram, has appeared in hundreds of Fashion and Fitness magazines, and has been endorsed by top A-List celebrities. At just five years old, Body By Simone is just beginning a journey of endless possibilities.
