Angelique Millis is a Certified Fitness Professional, Journalist and Lifestyle Coach living in Los Angeles, CA. As a weight loss success story that combated her vices and transformed her physique by losing nearly 40 pounds & 5 dress sizes, Angelique has transcended her passion for health and fitness into motivating & educating others on reaching their fitness potential. With a B.S. in Journalism & Mass Communications from Florida International University, Angelique is a contributing writer to several health & fitness magazines and websites including Kettlebell Magazine, Physique Magazine, Sports Nutrition Insider and Bodybuilding.com as well as the author of “The Fit Success Lifestyle Program- a Fitness Plan to transform your Body & your Life”. Angelique is firmly dedicated to helping others improve their lives and because leading a fit lifestyle often involves a degree of sacrifice and discipline that many struggle with, she aims to write empowering content geared towards “fitness beginners” that can both inspire and guide readers as they embark or re-embark on their fitness journey. She believes that “Goals without Deadlines are Only Dreams” and that people can begin their fitness journey by taking a proactive approach to improving their health & fitness levels by setting detailed and realistic personal goals and enjoying the process. As a former Managing Director of a nationally recognized media firm, Angelique looks forward to sharing her firsthand experience, tools and strategies for developing & retaining a strong and focused “life/work/fitness balance” by helping others implement and maintain a fit lifestyle in the midst of a stressful corporate work environment.
