Marina Kamen/aka/MARINA, co-owner of Kamen Entertainment Group, is a woman of the new millennium. Born a native New Yorker, MARINA started dance at age 4 in New York City, added violin and piano at age 7, and then , by the age of 11, went on to study opera and violin at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. By the early 1980's, MARINA started to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. She pioneered and spearheaded the aerobic exercise industry as one of the original instructors at Body Design By Gilda in New York City.

Before long, MARINA discovered that dance-driven "high-nrg" tracks were perfect for walking to. As a matter of fact, they were perfect for any workout much like the music from the 70's and 80's that MARINA had grown to love during her years of teaching aerobics. Soon, she found her winning combination of walking, dancing to her own tracks, and a portion-controlled, well-balanced meal plan. Within a year, MARINA dropped close to 100 pounds!

By 2001, MARINA had written music and acted as choreographer, developer and host spokesperson for clients including QVC/Direct, Jazzercise, Dynamix, Equinox Gyms, Jackie Chan's CableFlex and Strive Enterprise with Bill Kazmier (ESPN).

MARINA has been seen on The Discovery Health Network, PBS, and Nickelodeon (The N), as well being covered in the New York Times, The Daily News, and Family Circle Magazine. In addition, MARINA's "high-nrg fitness" cable TV show currently airs in various states though out the US.
