She is a certified group fitness instructor who specializes in cardio dance classes. She also teaches TRX suspension training for increased core and body strength. She founded TheLOLAclub.com as a private online health club (L.O.L.A. stands for Ladies Only, Living Actively) for women to help those in her community find the perfect workout for their unique needs.
O’Donnell is married, has two children and lives in New England where she freezes all winter long. Which means, she readily accepts speaking engagements in warmer parts of the country!
