As an expert consultant in nutrition and healthful living, Larysa provides healthy fitness motivation for people from age 8 to 80! Her innovative Get Fit with Larysa fitness DVD for 'tween girls is designed to build confidence and self esteem by inspiring young girls to exercise and live healthier lives. In addition, she contributes to Girls Life magazine and has become the "unofficial" fitness badge trainer for the Girl Scouts of America.
Recently, Larysa co-authored a book with bestselling author, Missy Lapine, entitled, Sneaky Fitness, Fun Foolproof Ways To Slip Fitness Into Your Child's Everyday Life (Running Press, 2009). Combining exercise and good, healthy food, this revolutionary book has the whole package for moms looking to improve their family's health. Larysa provides busy parents with 100 games and activities that will get any resistant child up and exercising.
Larysa is also an accomplished business owner.

Larysa has appeared on Good Day New York and in InStyle, Parenting, First For Women, and Destination Wedding Style magazines. In addition to her Get Fit With Larysa DVD for 'tweens, she also created an exercise video series for Redbook.
