An ambassador for healthy living, Shemane Nugent has been a group fitness instructor for more than 30 years. She is a best-selling author, an award-winning TV producer and host, filmmaker, motivational speaker, and is passionate about helping people make a positive impact on their health and overall well-being. She has appeared on MTV, Vh1, Discovery, CMT, C-Span, FOX, and many other national television and radio shows.
Shemane began her spiritual journey after discovering that her home, which was once featured on MTV Cribs, was contaminated with toxic mold. She developed a life-threatening illness and took a year off from teaching group fitness classes to focus on regaining her health. How she healed herself and her family through alternative remedies like oxygen, infrared sauna, and meditation is miraculous!
Shemane obtained a Master’s degree in Metaphysics not only to help herself endure the tragedy of losing her home and all her belongings, but to understand the physiological effect negative experiences have on the body. She shares her journey in her new book, 4 Minutes a Day: Rock ’n Roll Your Way to Happy, which became a best-seller the day it launched on Amazon.com.
Shemane was divinely guided to write the book in three days, not just to share her journeys from illness to wellness or from sadness to happiness, but also to be of service. By sharing the tragedies she had encountered in her life—losing her beloved home and becoming deathly ill, she realized she could help prevent others from experiencing such heartbreaks. Once barely able to walk, Shemane has fully recovered and is now an international Zumba® fitness presenter who is on a mission to share her passion for healthy living with others.
Shemane gives daily Periscope broadcasts and blogs weekly at shemanenugent.rocks, sharing her honest views about spirituality, faith, family, fitness, healthy living and her twenty-six year marriage to rock ‘n roll legend Ted Nugent. Shemane is also a screenwriter. Her greatest accomplishment, though, is being a mother to her son, twenty-five year-old Rocco.
