I.F.P.A. Certification in Sports Nutrition and Personal Fitness Training,  1997-2010

Under the I.F.P.A. I was certified in Sports Nutrition and Personal Fitness Training to work with both athletes and individuals.  I began putting my certification into practice at an all female gym, Lucille Roberts, in New York.  There I worked with all body types and structures, and any physical difficulties the person may have had such as arthritis or injury rehabilitation.  Both I and the individual would develop a fully accessible exercise routine and suitable diet to reach their fitness or ideal goal.
