My goals in sports nutrition
1. To learn more about sports nutrition in order to help athetles and myself prevent overtrainnig and injury and improve their sports performance

My own sporting background
I was an elite rhythmic gymnast for 4 years (Won the province and national championship of my category twice), but a knee injury forced me to abandon this practice. Later on, when I was 15 d I also trained and competed in Vaulting (Gold medals at the major competitions) till I turned 18. In the past years I have done several activities such as squash, jogging, outdoor biking and weight lifting but , in May 2011 I began my passion of being a trainer and I did certifications as polefitness, spinning, TRX, Samurai Fit and pilates Instructor. I did so much exercise without a correct nutrition and training program that I overtrained myself and suffered sever consequences last year. Now a days I am doing fine, and I am training again though with a correct nutrition and wise training program.
