Bonnie Prudden was one of the most amazing fitness professionals of the last century. She was one of the top fitness experts in America beginning in the 1940s through her passing in 2011. Prudden’s work has had a great influence on our movement philosophy at The Lean Berets. We are grateful to know of her and have met many that were personally trained under her over the years.
This is a fun history tour through some of Bonnie Prudden’s equipment archives with Enid Whittaker who was Bonnie’s personal physical education and administrative assistant for forty years and is the current managing director of Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy, Inc.
To summarize–Bonnie made movement fun. She had a keen eye for quality and a classical background in ballet and gymnastics along with elite rock climbing, but no matter what she was doing, it was fun and engaging down to the colorful equipment featured in the video. We hope you enjoy the tour and get a few ideas of your own.
