Shay Kostabi

Shay hails from a family of artists in Orange County, California. She attributes much of her creativity to both her grandmothers – one, a rhythmic gymnast in her youth and master pianist who gave Shay lessons every day after school. The other was a professional ballerina and taught Shay the basics in her living room when she was just three years old.

As she grew up, Shay cultivated a passion for music, dancing and the arts. In 2004, Shay moved to New York to attend The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts to pursue a performing arts career. Then in 2008, she went on a casting call for a fitness infomercial. Shay advanced quickly through the test group, discovered yet another passion and within three months was a featured model in the in-home DVD, “RevAbs”. Just over two years later, with a strong desire to "pay it forward," she became the co-founder of a fitness company called the Health reVolutionaries and is a Beach Body Coach.

Shay strives to motivate people to tap into their inner strength, push past their physical and mental limits, and inspire a sense of courage, self-empowerment and grace in every workout.

Shay looks forward to meeting you at the barre!
