JACKSONVILLE, FL, August 26, 2010 – America’s Most Decorated Gymnast Shannon Miller will lead a special fitness session “Gold Medal Lifestyle: Health and Fitness with Shannon Miller” at Jacksonville’s Speaking of Women’s Health Conference on Saturday, August 28, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Jacksonville.
Speaking of Women’s Health combines education and pampering into a forum where women can learn from each other and become inspired to take charge of their health. What started as a one-day conference in 1996 has turned into a foundation that hosts conferences nationwide. Speaking of Women’s Health is a non-profit program of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Specialized Women’s Health whose mission is: “Educating women to make informed decisions about health, well-being and personal safety for themselves and their families.”
Shannon Miller recently launched her company Shannon Miller Lifestyle: Health and Fitness for Women. Miller hosts her Sunday radio show on WOKV dedicated to women’s health and travels the country as an advocate for healthy lifestyle. As a new mother, Shannon knows that staying fit is critical, not only to a woman’s own health, but to the health and well being of her family.
Shannon Miller is the only American to rank among the Top 10 All-time gymnasts and is the only female athlete to be inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame twice (Individual 2006 and Team 2008). Among her career highlights, she has won an astounding 59 International and 49 National competition medals, over half of which are gold. She is the only US gymnast to win two World All-Around titles. Her tally of five medals (two silver, three bronze) at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain was the most medals won by a US athlete. At the ’96 Games in Atlanta, GA, she led the “Magnificent Seven” to the US Women’s first ever Team Gold and for the first time for any American gymnast, she captured gold on the balance beam.
Shannon continues to travel the country as a highly sought after motivational speaker and advocate for the health and wellness of women and children. Shannon and her husband welcomed their first child John “Rocco” on October 28, 2009.
