Hi, I'm Rhonda and I am excited to be a part of this group. I look forward to meeting everyone and learning together.
I have been in the fitness/wellness industry for over 30 years. I have a BS in Exercise Science with a concentration in post-rehab, a Masters of Education with a concentration in curriculum design, am a certified Neuro-Linguistic and Hypnosis Practitioner, and a licensed holistic health coach and nutritionist through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I am currently in the process of being licensed in Functional Medicine by the Institute of Functional Medicine.
I own and operate Body-in-Balance Wellness & Fitness Studio in Newport News, VA where my team and I provide fitness, nutrition, lifestyle, and post-rehab services for clients of all ages, conditions, and fitness levels. I recently partnered with a local Medical Doctor and together we have founded The Center for Neuro-Regenerative Medicine, where the art of medicine has been restored and the whole person is treated through the use of traditional medicine, lifestyle adjustments, proper nutrition and supplementation, individually programmed exercise, and self-care strategies designed to enhance sleep and reduce stress.
I like to call myself an author but basically I am just someone who likes to use words, A LOT "The Addictive Personal Trainer: the client-centered training approach that keeps them coming back for more" was my first book. I have completed my second one, "Authentic, Bold, and Centered: Healthy Living from A-Z," but I am sort of stuck as I don't know what to do with it. I self-published the first book and it has done nothing so I don't think I will self-publish again.
I love motivational speaking and have created training programs and led seminars and workshops for such corporations as the US Air Force, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Macy’s, the National Professional Women’s Association, Riverside Hospital, the American Cancer Society, Nike, MetLife, the World Instructor Training School, Standard Chartered Bank, Barney’s of New York, and the NYC Football Club.
Thanks for reading! I look forward to learning about you too!
