About this pro

Darla O’Brien grew up on a rural Wisconsin dairy farm where she developed a keen eye for body structure and muscle tone breeding and raising Holsteins. While still in her early teens, Darla won top awards at national and international competitions, beating out entire college teams and well-financed dairy syndicates.

Today, Darla is better known for her uncanny ability to see human body structure, postural deviations and protocols for addressing those deviations.  Clients at her studio, Designer Fitness, range from models, professional athletes and doctors to post-surgical rehab patients.

A new type of workout product as a result of Darla’s experience with posture, balance, stability and corrective movement patterns: the “ME System™” (“Motion Empowered”).  The premise of the ME System is that all movement is exercise that can be beneficial when done correctly. The tagline is “Make Your Life a Workout™” – with correct and safe alignment as the underlying foundation!

Darla holds multiple certifications from the ACSM and ACE, AFAA, Cooper Institute, IDEA and NFPT.  She recently introduced an iPad App to introduce and help reinforce the basic movements of the ME System.  Darla lives in Sarasota FL with her cat, Simon, and her husband (not necessarily in order of importance)!
