Everybody has a better that they’re after and you’ll find yours in the AJ Zone.

AJ is THE life stylist to the stars, helping celebrities like Gabrielle Union, Anne Hathaway and John Krasinski find their better (yep, even A-listers have a better!)

During her exclusive retreat, AJ will help you find the missing link that explains why you haven’t achieved your goals yet. The better lies in the details, and under AJ’s guidance you’ll finally find the secret sauce to your better. Through the fun, fitness, nutrition and commoradiere at the retreat, you’ll see that getting more for your life, requires more from you.

Having run so many people through The AJ Zone, AJ can guarantee results and that you will not leave the weekend unchanged for your better.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Psychology, AJ debated medical school, but moved to Hollywood to scratch the artistic itch first. After appearing in many TV series and movies, she never left. But when her father told her from his deathbed, “You’re not able to save me, but take all of who you are and what you know and go save the world.”  His words lead AJ to redefine her life’s purpose, dedicating herself to wellness education and training. When she is not sharing the screen with Julia Roberts, Ving Rhames or Sylvester Stallone, AJ is a renowned lifestyle coach and wellness advocate. She created THE AJ ZONE, combining her passions for health and philanthropy.

“THE AJ ZONE is the zone you live in when you want to reach your better! We do not offer personal training – how do you train someone like CeeLo or Stevie Wonder to do anything? How do you train T.O. to be faster? They are at the top of their game, looking for more than just improved performance or more defined bodies; they’re looking for better, healthier lives. Watching me live my life, they know I can get them to better.”

When AJ is not molding the hottest minds, bodies and souls of Hollywood with her “No Excuses” straight-talk approach, she is creating a global movement towards wellness.

AJ created a wellness segment for the WE channel’s Savvy, hosted VH-1’s reality fitness competition From Flab to Fab, and TV Guide Network’s Hollywood Bodies. AJ has lent her advice to The Wendy Williams Experience, and Baisden After Dark  and has recently joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show syndicated radio team as an expert discussing anything related to obesity in Black America. A.J. is also a radio fixture in major markets.
AJ frequently hosts seminars, workshops and classes for corporate, media and celebrity clients in both formal and island retreat settings.
