An AFAA® certified fitness instructor for over 24 years, she teaches classes ranging from step aerobics, total body conditioning, and many more. She successfully moves, touches and inspires many people around the world with her knowledge and passion for Bhangra and Bollywood. Recognized as a global game changer, Sarina has over 15 workout videos under her belt with Masala Bhangra® classes offered in over 20 countries around the world.
Although India’s glitzy Bollywood films have featured Bhangra and other folk-dances and music for quite some time, it took a vivacious, young Indian-American fitness instructor to devise the concept of choreographing Bhangra along with modern, funky dance moves to appeal to the American exercise industry. In the process, Jain has impacted the entire fitness industry, and has been heralded in the press throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Jain introduced her Bhangra/Bollywood-style fitness routine to the U.S. with her first workout tape in 1999, and has since directed and produced a total of twelve high-intensity, easy to follow workouts in her Masala Bhangra® DVD series. Born in California, she started leading fitness classes at a very young age, and has been a certified fitness instructor for 23 years. She completed studies in marketing and public relations in Los Angeles, before founding her company, Masala Dance & Fitness, Inc. in 1999. She soon relocated to New York where she successfully cultivated a larger audience for her cross-cultural fitness ideas. In 2010, Jain was the new face for Nestle Fitness throughout Latin America, where 2.6 million cereal boxes include her “Masala Bhangra® Bollywood Style” DVD.
Jain proudly embraces her Indian heritage, and is an active member of the Indian-American community. “I lost my father to a massive cardiac arrest at the age of 47, my Mom was 40 years old. After this tragic accident, I just had to do something about this and inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and be the first to bring Indian dance to the fitness industry at a global level. People fall in love with the beat of Bhangra,” Jain says, “the music combined with its sensuous, vigorous movements recreates the excitement that an occasion is being celebrated. People have so much fun; they don’t realize they are getting an awesome cardiovascular and muscle-strengthening workout. Bringing Masala Bhangra® to people all over the world is so gratifying—I am absolutely living my dream.”
After losing her father to a massive cardiac arrest at the age of 47, she was inspired to bring Indian dance to the fitness industry at a global level. The loss of her father is what started this entire journey!

On a personal note:
I literally tuned into Steve Harvey's TV show and my friend Tiaja Piere was on talking with Steve Harvey, celebrity trainer Obi Obadike, and movie star Morris Chestnut. Obi and Morris co-authored the book "The Cut". Basically, Obi thought it would be a great idea to write a book after Morris had gotten into tip top shape in 12 weeks getting ready for the sequel to "The Best Man" his plan. People actually talked about Morris’s physique more than they talked about the movie. Obi and Morris decided to get together and write a book based on the training protocol that Obi used to get Morris into shape. The dynamic duo actually reached out to people on Facebook who would like to be part of the study. Tiaja Piere responded to their Facebook invitation to get in shape with many others, and as they say the rest is history. My friend Tiaja's transformation was astonishing and really peaked my interest, as I have known her for years. I also heard Obi and Morris on"The Model Health Show" with Shawn Stevenson and thought I would love to have them on my podcast. How is that for the power of positive thinking. You have to ask for what you want and then act upon it!

Her celebrity client list includes Nicole Kidman, Dr. Sanjay Gupta (who she trained for his first triathlon), and Soledad O'Brien. Laura's mantra is to "never ignore what your heart beats for".
In 2008 Laura became a triathlon coach and business owner then she started the incredible company, Team Lipstick. It has been a stellar, life changing experience, and the one endeavor she is the most proud of.
After spending 10 years on the competitive ballroom dance circuit, she was looking for a change. She had a lot of triathlete friends at the time so she purchased a bike and began riding with them. When it was ‘just the girls' they jokingly referred to themselves as Team Lipstick, since they were as entirely concerned about having a great workout as they were about what their hair looked like when they removed their helmets at the most popular local hotspots for NYC cyclists enjoying a coffee break from their ride.
Laura signed up for her first triathlon with just 12 weeks to prepare, and she had absolutely no idea how to swim. Growing up in Brooklyn she wasn't actually taught to swim. Swimming was in direct conflict with all of the hairspray and makeup they wore to the beach. So she hired a swim coach, swam 6 days a week (out of pure fear), and was prepared for her ½ mile open water swim by race day. Having coached herself for everything but the swim, a lot of mistakes were made, but a lot was learned as well. Wet suit zippers go in the back not the front, your feet don’t need a special bath after the swim, transitions should not take 7 minutes, and no one brushes their hair before the run. It was an eye opening, amazing, and funny experience.
At the exact moment she crossed the finish line she thought 2 things...One, that it was easy, and two, that she wanted to start an all-women’s team. Her goal was to provide a safe, supportive environment for women to excel and thrive as athletes. She wanted to attract strong minded women. Women who support other women. Women who are positive, who don't mind getting uncomfortable, who embrace physical challenges. What she got was so much more. The women of Team Lipstick ultimately defined the brand. They are a family, they are fearless, they look out for each other, and they are forever in search of the next big race, goal, achievement, or crazy bunch of fun.
The women of Team Lipstick are committed to living a healthy, sporty lifestyle. They are more than just inspiring training partners, they are a family of strong, successful, positive women who are enthusiastic about supporting one another.
Team Lipstick hosts Travel with lipstick which includes exotic, life changing, bucket list retreats for both women and men who crave adventure and exploration. Travel to wild nature. Swim, bike, run, rappel and soar as your means of transportation. Do all of these things with happy, positive, FUN people, because fit travelers tend to fit that description perfect
