Hi, I’m Luci.
I help people drop the fads, sort out the myths from reality, and understand food and fitness in a way that works for their body, and for life.
I’ve been in the fitness and health industry all of my life. I’ve worked alongside body builders, ballet dancers and professional athletes, and learned much about how they train for their sports. I’ve worked together with doctors and physical therapists getting mutual clients to optimal health.
I ran my own personal training company for 10 years. My team and I helped customers on the east and west coast incorporate fitness and healthy nutrition into their busy lives.
Before that, I helped several other, large facilities manage and grow their personal training, group exercise and spa departments, mentoring and leading other fitness and wellness professionals along the way. I also had the pleasure of being co-founder and managing partner in a very large fitness-spa start-up in Washington DC.
I’ve helped all kinds of people create better food and exercise habits for the betterment of their life: From triathletes, martial artists and former basketball players to CEO’s and work-at-home mom’s; from generally healthy individuals to those with obesity, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, post operational joints post cardiac rehab, cancer survivors, and cancer survivors who are athletes.
My education includes: a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology with an emphasis on genetics, an education in Nutrition and Dietetics (4-year accredited degree program by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics), a Master’s in Business Administration, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical and Psychological Health.
As an exercise physiologist, a dietetics-trained nutritionist, and a coach, I speak from experience when I say that you can be optimally healthy even while over-scheduled and juggling many things at once: I acquired 2 master’s degrees inside of 3 years. I was a partner and director for a five-star fitness and spa start-up and served as manager for several, other, high-end fitness clubs where I was tasked to, and succeeded in, improving bottom lines as well as employee satisfaction. I started and grew LuciFit, LLC to a multi-state company with a team of trainers on both coasts. I accomplished these while I got my black-belt in Tae Kwon Do, competed in triathlons, completed run races and other multi-sport races and maintained a photograph-able fitness body. To keep my body balanced, I’ve also studied Yoga and Pilates since 1992. This has given me a unique perspective on business, busy-ness, and what it takes to stay healthy in the modern-day life we’re all living.
The three, most important lessons I’ve gathered from my education and experience to date are:
1.) Exercise is the fountain of youth.
It’s not self-punishment, it’s the epitome of self-care. And it will make you younger, right down to your DNA.
2.) Diets Don’t work.
In order to be lean, fit, and energized, most of us need to eat more, not less, of the right stuff. Choosing healthy food that fits your personal needs and preferences is easy and delicious when you know the basics of how it’s done.
3.) You’ve got to listen to and respect your body.
It’s the only way to create lasting health and fitness, the kind that runs deep into the fiber of your life.
