Bucket List - Samantha Friedman
Samantha Friedman moved from Manhattan back to Metro Detroit to build her own fitness business. She was able to convince her New York native husband to join her on her mission. Sam and her mom created Fuse45 - a 45 minute sustainable, high intensity interval training workout. It's the SHIIT. Sam had the privilege of working with celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels to refine the concept. The mother/daughter team currently has studios in West Bloomfield and Royal Oak and they are working towards continued expansion of the fitness concept. Sam has thoroughly enjoyed getting more involved in Detroit's incredible Jewish community by joining The Well’s Bucket List and plans to continue exploring her Jewish identity and roots through The Well's programs, especially with her growing family (Sam and her husband recently welcomed a new baby to their family). In her free time, Sam loves playing tennis, being outside, hanging out with family and friends, cooking, trying new restaurants, reading and traveling.
