Tammy Polenz, Founder & President of Vedas Living, has over 25 years of experience encompassing competitive fitness, authorship, club ownership, business coaching, along with gym, salon and spa design. She is deeply passionate about helping people attain the best possible versions of themselves utilizing a holistic view of health.


Tammy developed this proven method for permanent weight loss outlined in her book Think Fit 2 Be Fit while competing nationally in fitness and teaching weight management to corporations through Vedas Fitness. She uses simple analogies to help people understand how the body works and how they can learn to work with their own basic physiology to obtain desired results.


Currently Ms. Polenz works with levelHEADS bringing a uniquely progressive perspective to architectural projects and the integration of Active and WELL Building design standards as a strategy for user health. As part of her role, she provides a Fit-Well overlay to levelHEADS’ Architecture and Interiors practice whereby her design approach produces healthy environments that have positive long-term health impacts on people.


Tammy’s philosophy is that the world sustains human life, therefore improving the health of the individual must first start with personal responsibility and extend into the environment for people to ‘be fit’ and have better quality of life.


“We as humans are never stagnant; either we allow ourselves to decline, or we strive to improve all aspects of our self.” ~Tammy Polenz
