Sheila Cluff, internationally-known fitness expert, owner and founder of The Oaks at Ojai health and fitness destination spa is an inspiration because the 70-year-old mother of four and grandmother of seven lives and looks the lifestyle she teaches.

The former Sonja Henie professional figure skater and high school physical education teacher is considered a fitness pioneer in the health and fitness industry among her peers, recently returning to ice skating after a 40-year hiatus as a Senior competitor. Cluff introduced “cardiovascular dance” to the world in the 1950s. Today, we know this groundbreaking exercise simply as “aerobics.”

In addition, Cluff manages to publish the “Spa Update,” a newsletter with 50,000 circulation. After four decades of great success, Cluff still makes time to teach at least five classes per week at her popular California-based fitness destination spa and know her guests by name.
