Our Founder

Simone began training in classical ballet at the age of three and has enjoyed a successful dance career spanning two decades, including performances on Broadway, London’s West End, and in her native Australia.

After retiring from dancing, Simone made a natural transition to the fitness industry. As a NASM CPT, she began with a loyal base of celebrity clients, and was then able to expand BBS into her New York and two Los Angeles studios. Simone is also a PROnatal Pre/Post Natal Exercise Specialist.

Simone’s initial desire to create a revolutionary exercise technique was to safeguard against injuries. By providing a solid foundation on dance, she avoided the habitual wear and tear. Clients not only avoid injury, but avoid boredom.

Simone’s technique has led to the growth of both the Body By Simone brand, and her reputation as one of the hottest Hollywood fitness experts.
