Carla Birnberg

2016 Speaker

CARLA BIRNBERG is a writer, editor and social media consultant. Her health philosophy (and life motto) is, “fitness isn’t about fitting in.” She believes we may all share the goal of a longer, healthier, more vibrant life, but it’s okay, and even encouraged, to carve a unique path there. Her tagline “unapologetically myself” has inspired thousands to pursue goals in their own way. Birnberg launched her popular blog, MizFitOnline, in 2006. She has since expanded her site,, covering everything from personal development to motherhood. Birnberg’s engaging, keep-it-real advice has been featured in Runner’s World, Women’s Day, the Wall Street Journal, Experience Life, Ladies Home Journal, Glamour, Women’s Health, Fitness, Yahoo!, Shape magazine and more. She was named one Athleta’s Five Favorite Fitness Blogs. Shape Magazine placed her in the Top Five Fitness Blogs, as well as One of 15 Fitness Gurus You Need To Follow On Twitter. She was Fila brand’s inaugural spokesmom, and works as social media consultant to Venus Williams, who considers her a major influencer. Her book, “What You Can When You Can: Healthy Living On Your Terms” (Seal Press), was one of the first books to spark an online movement (#wycwyc) and create a virtual community of support. @carla_birnberg @mizfitonline
