"Being healthy is not as hard as Rocket Science... it’s Harder. It doesn't stop at the aisle.
Laila Alieh is a Civil Engineering Undergraduate from Purdue University with a Mechanical Engineering Masters from Portland State University. Since 3rd grade, she has always had a passion for travel, helping others and becoming an astronaut. During her years in engineering school she was afforded the opportunity to work for NASA as a co-op engineer. “It was a dream come true ” she says. She thought her dream was set at NASA and continued to ride the wave until budget cuts started to diminish the chance of becoming an astronaut.
She then gave corporate America a try, but the passion just wasn’t there, as she started to look forward to working out more than going to work. A few years later she got engaged to her long-term Purdue boyfriend. As Laila was planning out her big fat Greek (well actually Persian) destination wedding, a major engineering challenge hit her. She was not able to fit into her wedding dress. With just T minus 4 months to go till the big day, Laila coached herself to fit into her dress. Doing everything she could without jeopardizing her healthy just as if she was preparing for a shuttle launch. Not only did she coach herself, she even coached some of her bridesmaids to become wedding fit, and in just 4 months Laila was able to confidently walk down the aisle as she fit like a glove into her wedding dress. Even after her wedding Laila was still able to fit into her dress and continued to implement the healthy lifestyles she and her hubby now have together.
She now is a full-time online lifestyle and wedding fitness coach and is the co-founder of the Wedding Fit Forever Academy her one-on-one online coaching program. She calls herself, the fitness astronaut. Using her engineering and NASA experience to help brides and brides-to- be explore fitness as astronauts explore space. In other words, Slim Down For the Gown. In her book every lady is a bride. It doesn't stop at the aisle, thus why she believes everyone deserves to be Wedding Fit Forever.
She helps brides from all over the world to be wedding fit forever to develop the mindset required to learn what they need to do enable to look the absolute best in their wedding dress through proper fitness and nutrition without jeopardizing their health. Laila feels that it is her calling to help brides and women become wedding fit forever with their health, fitness & mindset.
