My fitness life started early as a semi-professional athlete in running and endurance development. I earned several levels of professional recognition in running, tried some gymnastics and took ballet classes. Later I mostly dedicated my life to work (I have BSc in Pharmacology) and family, raised three children. About four years ago I decided to become Fitness Instructor, first hand experiencing difficulties of getting back on track. I am immensely grateful to Fitness Coordinator of City of New York Parks & Recreation Nancy Klitsner, who inspired me to join and successfully complete Aerobics Leadership Training Program. To learn more, I decided to acquire National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Personal Trainer Certification, followed by Group Exercise Instructor Certification by Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), Exercise and Nutrition Works Fitness Nutrition Specialist Certification. Now I am Personal Trainer at Bally Total Fitness, leading Strength and Stretch classes at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, offering individual and small groups exercises at home and parks locations and developing tailored nutrition programs. I am proud to use my knowledge and experience to help people get fitter, develop healthy lifestyle, and raise confidence in them.
