About Karen Sullivan

Speaker, Coach, Author        “Improving Lives One Person at a Time!”

Karen started her coaching career in Williamsburg, Virginia as a trainer for three separate facilities, as well as a rehabilitation specialist in private homes. She’s worked with hundreds of people as an AFPA Certified Personal Trainer and Post Rehabilitation Exercise Specialist. The last 13 years she was affiliated with a small gym in St. Charles, Missouri as a fitness coach and personal trainer. She gained an additional certification as an exercise affiliate of PD Gladiators, an Atlanta-based non-profit where she teaches exercise classes for people with Parkinson’s Disease. Her class Fit Body, Relaxed Mind is a popular exercise choice in Atlanta. Presently she teaches Movement Disorders Training at the St. Peters RecPlex.

In the Spring of 2013 The Zen of Weight Loss  was published (co-author Jeri Levesque, Ed.D.). It’s the embodiment of Karen’s philosophy of fitness. Since then, she’s presented her program through lectures and workshops. ZWL Coaching Method approach to fitness has allowed many to reclaim their health and liveliness. ZWL is gaining momentum as an effective way to create goals and identify what you must do to get there. While group presentations are effective you can also choose to work one-on-one with Karen to design your personal program and achieve what you want.

“As a person with a 13-year history of Parkinson’s Disease and expertise in exercise, I am quite selective of those with whom I work. I first met Karen when I was a participant in her Fit Body, Relaxed Mind group exercise and meditation class offered through the PD Gladiators network.  As a teacher Karen is enthusiastic, creative, and able to modify exercises so that participants at different levels can all be successful.  I have also hired Karen as a personal trainer, and I have not been disappointed.  She gently nudges me farther than I could go on my own.”  BG, Atlanta

  1. Hi there. I used to have a recording of David Simon teaching about and chanting the Tryambakam, but cannot find it since my old computer failed a while back. I have been googling to find out how to get a copy and I found your post about it: https://zwlcoaching.com/tag/tryambakam/ What you describe, the intro and explanation and all that, sounds like the same recording I had. Do you know where I can find it? Thanks for any help or direction!

    • Erin, I would think you can contact the Chopra business customer service. (760) 494-1639
      Since David Simon was Chopra’s partner I believe they would be able to help you. It certainly does resonate in your spirit — right? Thank you for running across my work and reaching out.

    • Hello. My name is Michael Viener. This is the only contact possibility I have found so far. I am trying to get hold of Michael (Sharpe) Shapiro, the saxophone player. He knows who I am. If you could would you tell him to get in touch with me. Or tell me how I can find him. mviener@mindspring.com

    • Michael, I knew Michael Shapiro while I was living in Decatur, GA. He was a regular customer at the Kroger where I was a cashier. I am sorry I do not know anything else about his address. He remembered you and was touched that I found some information on him on the internet. The kroger was at the location of Toco Hills. I don’t know if that will help you at all.

      All the Best

  4. Tillie, Thanks for checking me out. Hope you can get your friends to subscribe too. I am excited about having another way to work with peple and answer questions about fitness. My approach is so different than what is out there I feel I can help folks. I added a YouTube link to the video. Perhaps that will work better for you! This group of people are simply AMAZING. Thanks again, Karen
