About Syd Hoffman

Syd2014-300x289If you try to reach Syd and she does not answer her phone, she’s probably in a fitness class. She started lifting weights, setting her elliptical to an insane grade, and practicing yoga after the age of forty. It took her almost five years to comfortably touch her toes and she learned a lot about herself on the journey.

Today at the youthful age of 59, Syd is committed to keeping her body at her optimal fitness level and nothing can get in her way! She practices what she preaches by eating six incredibly healthy meals each day, and including strength, cardio, and flexibility activities in her well-balanced weekly fitness plan.

Syd has an abundance of energy and is ready to share it! She summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro at age 50.  She explored the Swiss Alps in September 2012.  She has created three successful businesses from scratch and is currently working on her second book, “Do this. Lose weight.

Syd created EatPlayHug.com, a website to motivate real women over the age of 40 to get healthy and stay healthy based on her mom’s philosophy to “eat well, play hard, and hug often.”  There are 42 short videos on this website to encourage sensible eating, sane exercising, and sensational self-care.
