Sheree Burton Interview: Her Tips On Fitness, Nutrition & Motivation
Women Fitness|January/February 2020
“You just wait!” That’s what Sheree Burton has heard repeatedly over the years from people.

“Wait for what exactly?” Sheree would ask. Over the years she has received various answers suggesting that it would be impossible for her to remain fit and active as time went on. She would hear, “Wait till you hit 30” (or 40) or “Wait until you have your first child” (or your second, or third), but Sheree eventually reframed her response from “Wait for what?” to “No, YOU just wait!”

Sheree Burton is a popular fitness and nutrition coach www.shereeburton.com and one of the founders of the family-owned and operated Burton Nutrition Company. She is also the wife of Emmy winning actor and entrepreneur, Steve Burton, and together they have three children: Makena (16), Jack (13) and Brooklyn (5).

When did you first realize that you wanted to pursue a career in fitness?

I have always loved being active. I grew up doing gymnastics, ice-skating, cheerleading and swimming, but finding fitness as my passion for a career evolved over time. Funny enough, my first job was as a receptionist at a local gym, which I applied for solely so I could get the free gym membership! My career path took many turns after this first job that included riding show horses for many years and working as an intern on the set of ABC’s General Hospital. It was on the set of General Hospital where I met my now-husband, actor Steve Burton ( Jason Morgan), who was also passionate about maintaining a fit/active lifestyle. I started to learn all I could about fitness and nutrition and, as I found what worked best for me, friends and family began asking me for advice and help. It was a truly gratifying feeling to take what I had learned and see the impact it made in other people’s lives. Creating my own online platform for one-on-one coaching and group challenges developed from there.
