Taj Harris

Brooklyn, NY 11233

Hello I’m Taj Harris. I am a naturally active, former tomboy, that fell in love with fitness over 20 years ago. It all started in my early years at a local women’s only gym in northern New Jersey. Who knew the young girl behind the desk answering phones would become a sought after fitness professional? Working my way through college I started out teaching Step and Hi/Lo aerobics and shortly there after became a certified personal trainer. Ten years into my fitness journey I discovered my 2nd love…can you say Namaste. A few down dogs and warriors later, I went from enthusiast, to yogi, to instructor, to Senior Master Yoga Trainer. Fitness is my life, its who I am. I also enjoy teaching SPIN, kickboxing, rebounding, pound and many other group fitness formats. I’m an avid runner and cyclist who’s had the pleasure of running several marathons. Including the NYC Marathon, twice. Along with teaching and training, I enjoy providing fitness advice and instruction through various outlets. I’ve been featured on Oprah.com, NYTimes and Reuters online. I have appreciated having the opportunity to be a national and international presenter at various fitness conventions and conferences. I have contributed to and have published articles in both Self and Health Magazines.
