She earned an athletic scholarship at the University of Arizona, andwas ranked no.9 in the NCAA on the balance team, then transferred to California State University, from where she graduated with degree in physical education and physiology, with a minor in exercise physiology.

Upon graduation she started teaching, creating excersise video tapes, producing fitness shows and writing fitness-related columns and books. Some of these projects include “Shrink Your Female Fat Zones“, „Eat Carbs, Lose Weight“ and „Pilates for Every Body“. What makes Denise stand out among other fitness instructors is her unique approach to body-defining and a healthy life. She has emphasized that she herself exercises only around 30 minutes a day, and doesn’t skip meals. Her moto is „progress not perfect“, and she finds it more important to stay moderate when it comes to eating, and controlling your portions instead of giving up food.

One of Austin’s goals is also motivating people to stay fit at all ages, and propose realistic, everyday life solutions to weight control. She integrates several different types of workouts in her programs, including cross training, aerobics, pilates and yoga. Thanks to her recognized approach and visible results, Denise had a long-running TV program – „Getting Fit with Denise Austin“ – which ran on ESPN2, and which now re-runs on ESPN Classic and Altitude Sports and Entertainment. The show was eventually renamed to „Fit and Lite“ and „Denise Austin’s Daily Workout“, and moved to Lifetime Television until April 2008. After this, she continued releasing DVD compilations of her workout programs, and started running her YouTube channel, which she continues to do today. Altogether, she has created more than 100 fitness videos and DVDs which gained such popularity that she was inducted into the Video Hall of Fame in 2003. As she used to be a member of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, her career reputation and popularity grew even more.
