Gail McFarland Gail McFarland is a fitness professional in the Atlanta-area who I've had the pleasure of knowing for a number of years. We used to bump into each other as we seemed to end up teaching at the same places. Here's her bio: Gail McFarland is the published author of more than 100 short romantic confessions and stories and eight novels. She is also the daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter of African-American women who died of heart attacks. Making a decision to change her lifestyle in 1985 led her to aerobics classes in College Park, GA -- and the rest was history, and a life of majorly intense workouts. A dedicated wellness/fitness advocate, Ms. McFarland is currently a nationally certified fitness instructor and consultant. As an aerobics instructor with more than twenty-five years experience, she has taught widely throughout the city of Atlanta and counts body sculpting and Pilates as her current favorites, though she will always have a soft spot in her heart for Step. Her community wellness activities include acting as a Health Promotion Specialist for Fulton County (Georgia) and working the Association of Black Cardiologists REACH for Wellness program. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Ms. McFarland now makes her home in Atlanta, Georgia. We'd love to have you join us! Thanks! Gail "The Fitwryter" McFarland
