Daily Inspiration: Meet Tori Simeone

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tori Simeone.

Hi Tori, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I believe that through meditation, manifestation, focusing on my goals and taking big risks, I have been able to take the steps to get where I am today. My journey started as a professional dancer in NYC. I moved into the city the day after I graduated high school to start a training program at Broadway Dance Center that summer which inspired me to stay in the city, sign with an agency, put college on hold and pursue my dance career. While in New York, I got to perform with multiple artists, dance on Good Morning America, the Thanksgiving day parade and more. I then got the opportunity to perform in West Side Story (twice!) and that is what brought me out to LA! I became a Clippers Spirit dancer and started teaching at Pure Barre which opened up my love for fitness and the community that came with it.

I have always been someone that says ‘Yes’ and takes the opportunity that comes my way if it feels aligned to me and the goals I am trying to reach.

Once I was settled in LA, I really began to settle into what my life is today! I currently teach on the Tone It Up app as a dance cardio and barre instructor, I am a fitness model and influencer as well.

I recently got married and am now expecting my first baby this July! I am my own brand @torrsim and share my knowledge of all things health, wellness and fitness + lots of life hacks. I love inspiring others to live their best life and remind my followers that anything is possible.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When I wrote everything out on the last slide, it makes it look like an easy one step after the other kind of journey. This was not the case! It was such a roller coaster. I always focused on my goals and more importantly how I wanted to feel when I reached them, and this would always help me to keep pushing forward and working hard.

I struggled with major anxiety during my years in New York. Questioning my path, questioning if I was good enough to achieve the goals I had set for myself, etc.

When thoughts like that came up for me, I would call my loved ones, let them talk some sense into me and give me some tough love to remind of the goals I set.

It takes daily practice and commitment to whatever it is you want to achieve and that is hard hard work.

Surrounding myself with supportive friends that love me where I’m at but also push me to be my best self has been something I really cherish and helped my confidence in times that I needed a boost!

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I was a professional dancer for ten years and I still take classes all the time for fun. I will do the occasional dance jobs when they come up!

Now, I am known for teaching on the Tone It Up app and being one of the faces and ambassadors for Vuori Clothing.

I am a fitness model and commercial actress. I have my certificate as a holistic health coach as well, so I get to help others live their best and healthiest lives.

I love anything that involves being in front of the camera and getting to perform and inspire others. It really is one of my favorite things. This is why I love being an influencer on Instagram. I get to share my knowledge in all of the fields I have been a part of with so many people!

Alright so before we go can you talk to us a bit about how people can work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
They can follow me on Instagram @torrsim! I share my life and knowledge here. You can also take my classes on the Tone It Up app — I created my own four weeks program called Bridal Sculpt geared towards soon to be brides, wedding guests or anyone just looking for a four weeks tone up.
