Bonnie is Owner of The Fitness Asylum.
Bonnie Lefrak has been leading people to achieve their fitness goals for 24 years. She is highly qualified, maintains over a dozen certifications in fitness training and nutrition, and has a devoted following of seriously fit men and women. Bonnie specializes in Kettlebell Training, Bootcamps, Bodybuilding Competition Prep, and Nutrition.
Bonnie began her journey into fitness by teaching Group Exercise starting in 1994. She became a certified personal trainer in 1998 and has had the great pleasure of working with clients of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
Not only has she trained thousands of sessions, both with individuals and groups, she was the inaugural Director and master instructor for the National Personal Training Institute in Waltham, MA where she personally taught over 200 (would-be) personal trainers the principles of nutrition, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, programming, exercise technique and fitness business.
Before The Fitness Asylum, Bonnie spent the 13 years in Fitness Management, successfully managing clubs, programs and trainers, for some of the largest and most distinguished Fitness Businesses in the North East
Although Bonnie had been in the fitness industry for a while, it wasn’t until 1998 when she really fell in love with lifting and the whole “gym culture”. “I always felt competing was elusive because of the dieting, but when I started training with a female bodybuilder to “get wedding ready” in 2004, I realized I could definitely manage what is generally termed “hard dieting”. I competed in my first show in April 2005 and of course became hooked on this challenging sport”.
Bonnie won her PRO CARD at Nancy Andrews’ North East Classic in May 2006. Bonnie competed in two shows after that and then put her own competing aside to focus on complete contest prep, and judging for the INBF/WNBF.
And her personal style of coaching focuses on HEALTH over hard dieting. Preserving muscle, hormonal health and creating a viable lifestyle post competing is her passion.
Bonnie is married and has twin daughters.
