Rebecca created this recipe for one of the assignments in the Nutrition Module of the FNE program, and excited to introduce Rebecca and her creation!

 

Hi, I’m Rebecca I’m currently just finishing my FNE certification. I’m a personal trainer at a Womens gym. I lost 25lbs through changing my eating habits and exercising . I love motivating and challenging other women to be the best them 🙂
I chose FIT CHICKS Academy for my certification because I love how FIT CHICKS empowers women to be their best as that is what i’m looking to do in my own practice. I wanted to get certified to  help encourage and motivate other women to be the best them . To accomplish something for me.
In the Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program, the instructors are motivating, inspiring and made me feel supported! I loved the encouragement , community of women and of course the amazing instructors!
To anyone considering the program I would say just go for it. You’ve got this. You learn so much about yourself and the women around you. It was an awesome experience. Don’t let fear hold you back from your dreams! You can do anything you put your mind to. One goal, one assignment , one lesson at a time. I believe in YOU!
