Get to Know Our Fabulous NYC Trainer, Shannon McGee!

Shannon McGee is one of those people who make you feel comfortable the minute you meet them.  We value our trainers so much and take a long time to make sure they are right for our company, and it has been especially challenging for me to get to know people in NYC while I live in Denver.  But Shannon immediately struck me as a confident, warm, gifted, and knowledgeable trainer.  I am so excited to welcome her to our team and to introduce our clients to her extraordinary talent!

Check out this interview below and get to know some great things about her.  Like me, she loves to go to movies alone with a tub of buttered popcorn.  She also loves sharks, believe it or not! (I differ from her there lol)  Enjoy this interview, and also reach out if you want to train with Shannon before she books up quickly!

Where were you born? Plano, Texas

Where did you grow up? Frisco, Texas

What’s your biggest passion? Performing!

Tell me about your career. Have you changed directions? If so, why? I have had a fulfilling dance career performing as a freelance artist as well as dancing with different companies in NYC and I am still pursuing this! I currently dance with a contemporary dance company and a cabaret! In addition to performing I discovered my passion for fitness and education in 2015. Guiding others in their fitness journey became a huge passion of mine and helping people find strength and confidence in their own bodies is extremely important to me. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for every client I work with.

What do you wish you knew when you were younger? Don’t wait for approval or validation from others, believe in yourself and go for it!

What’s your fitness fashion style? I love wearing leggings and a cute crop! Neutral colors are my jam, especially wearing all black!

What’s the best piece of health/wellness/dance advice you’ve ever gotten? Stay true to yourself.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure? Going to the movie theater by myself and seeing a movie. Buttered movie theater popcorn is a must!

What quality do you really cherish about yourself? I love my ability to adapt and go with the flow.

What’s something most people don’t know about you (that’s maybe a little funny or weird)? I am obsessed with sharks! It is a dream of mine to go cage diving in South Africa with Great White sharks.

Anything else about you that I missed?
I am just so grateful to join Body Conceptions and am so excited to get started!
