What is Shandi Rooney’s Story?
Shandi Rooney was born in Scott City, Kansas and raised in Sublette, KS, a very small farm community of 1000 people in Southwest Kansas. As a child, she was active in every sport, had a drive for competition and a love for physical activity. She can remember doing Cindy Crawford workouts in my basement in Junior High School! Her passion for fitness lead her to the University of Kansas where she received by B.S. in Exercise Science. After graduating, she moved to Los Angeles to begin her fitness career working as a physical therapy assistant in Beverly Hills, CA. During this time, she also started her own personal and small group fitness training business. With the success and hype about her training method, she was approached by Bravo’s Jackie Warner and NBC’s Jillian Michaels to personal train at their Beverly Hills, CA private gym. After working with the best in the industry, Shandi knew that she wanted to open her own studio.
“Jackie and Jillian are two very strong women whose philosophy ‘go big or go home’ inspired me,” Shandi says.
And that’s what she decided to do… Go big and open her own studio! She opened up her first studio in Kansas City in 2008 and in 2009 moved to Scottsdale/Phoenix with her husband, Shane, and two children Braylen (9) and Riley (6). This is when she opened StudioMixx in Scottsdale. StudioMixx has built a reputation for getting amazing results because the technique is a one of a kind workout that will target every muscle in your entire body in one hour. Shandi now hosts small group workouts in a private studio and group workouts at the beautiful Joy Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia.
