12 Answers | Asked by Dianne Della Ratta on Apr 01, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Apr 01, 2016

Hi Dianne, all nutrition certifications will give you great detailed information to share with clients but the fine line of scope of practice still remains. Unless you become an RD, you will be limited to how specific you can be with your clients. I have the NASM FNS certification and learned...

11 Answers | Asked by Dianne Della Ratta on Mar 25, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Mar 25, 2016

8 Answers | Asked by Yasmine Marshall on Mar 25, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Mar 25, 2016

Hi Yasmine, yes, this is a question I would address to your doctor. What strikes me about it is the seeming randomness. It looks like you are trying to address certain issues for which any one of those substances offer a solution. Your concern is correct: there can be too much of a good thing,...

Hi Manohar, you will have to leave this to Mother Nature and Father Time. But, in the meantime, you can work on your posture. People who stand tall and in good posture always appear taller than they really are. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

8 Answers | Asked by Nancy King on Mar 20, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Mar 20, 2016

Hi Nancy, I offer classes with only a few participants but ask people to email me to reserve, and I have them pay when they are here. In full disclosure, I made my own website, and would not even know how to do that. On the other hand, the class I am offering has a few pre-reqs as far as abil...

Hi Beverly, many respected personal trainer certifications such as ACE or NASM do not have a practical component but they require that the exam be administered at a proctored site, and that is a fair way to do it. If a practical exam is required, then it places for many aspiring trainers an undue...
