The Team


Meredith Shumway

Founder & CEO

Meredith is a professionally trained ballerina who began her studies with Ballet Master, Maggie Black.  During that time, she trained with The Kirov Academy of Ballet and The American Ballet Theater.  Due to an injury, Meredith decided to continue her dancing in college while receiving a degree in Broadcast Journalism.  After graduating from University of Mississippi, Meredith started her fitness career in NYC with Physique 57.  After 7 years at Physique, Meredith then became the studio manager and top trainer for the Tracy Anderson Method for 8 years.  Due to many dance related and workout related injuries, Meredith wanted to find a way to workout that was effective without the risk of injury.  So she developed The Formula X Meredith.
