IDEA Member Spotlight
Margaret Hofmann-Nein, MEd
Member Since 1996
Margaret Hofmann-Nein, owner of Female Athletes First LLC, specializes in providing sports performance enhancement programs to female athletes. "It is a personal mission of mine to get the most up-to-date training practices, protocols, and health and wellness information to female athletes around the globe." While there is a great deal of solid information available, Hofmann-Nein finds that much of it has the potential to derail an athlete's success. "We want to educate the female athlete, her parents and her coaches about how and when to start a conditioning program for her sport," she says. "[We seek to] help the female athlete be all she can be in her chosen sport."
