A native of Riga, Latvia, Vlada Parrott grew up in a household influenced by Russian Ballet and Gymnastics. Her mother was a gymnastics coach to elite athletes, and her father was a world-renowned ballet dancer and director. With this influence and inspiration, a career in dance and fitness was inevitable for Vlada.
Vlada’s success as a professional dancer allowed her to travel all over the world, performing on tour and live shows, as well as earning her prominent opportunities in television, film, music videos, and commercials. She has worked with some of the top leading artists in the entertainment industry, including Britney Spears, Ricky Martin, Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, Weird Al Yankovic, Eminem, Michael Jordan, and more. An injury in dance shifted her career path to a new fulfilling purpose in life – fitness. She continues to do what she loves but aims to help individuals enhance their quality of movement and overall wellbeing.
Vlada’s approach to fitness is holistic – taking into account each person’s environment, physical fitness level, as well as, injuries, and specific needs and goals. By taking this approach, Vlada can tailor her training to meet each of her clients’ unique demands. She sees the body through the eyes of a dancer, a moving being in space. She marries this perspective with years of fitness education and technical training to build group classes and individual programs that are successful for her clients.
