Experience and Qualifications
Larissa’s passion is for healthy living including all aspects of well-being: exercise, nutrition and behavioral health. Six years ago she started managing a team of dietitians and licensed nutritionists and coordinating all-inclusive wellness retreats on the coast of North Carolina. With that experience, she was motivated to be a part of the wellness team by becoming certified from AFAA. Larissa is a group fitness instructor. In January she will begin her Wellcoach certification.
Larissa believes that exercise should be fun, motivating and energizing! It is an integral part of being healthy and having good self-esteem. She enjoys working with clients of all ages. In 2011, Larissa completed her first triathlon and half marathon (13.1 miles). “You must challenge yourself. If it was easy, everyone would do it. Exercise with friends, lift weights, play a game, or walk outside….it must be a part of your everyday living!”
