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