My name is Riana Rohmann and this is my first blog! I want a place to help spread the word about healthy lifestyles including sharing advice about exercise, nutrition, and health as well as current research in those fields. I called this blog “Personal Best” because I think it describes everyone’s goals. Your goals should revolve around yourself. It is great to have role models, stepping stones, and people to help you along your journey, but at the end of the day, your goals is to be the best you can be for yourself! Do it for YOU, be it for YOU and don’t let anyone tell you who to be or how to do it!
I have my B.S. in Kinesiology, specializing in Exercise Physiology from CSU San Marcos. I am an ACE Certified personal trainer, Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach and Advanced Health and Fitness Specialist. I also hold the CSCS (certified strength and conditioning specialist) Certification from the NSCA. I will be starting another blog shortly specifically about sport specific training for athletes and the military.
I currently write for Livestrong.com and have a few articles posted on Yahoo’s Associated Content. I have also written health newsletters for the Marine Corps. I am a former gymnast (and coach and judge), new NPC Figure competitor, personal trainer and fitness specialist, and proud mother and wife. I would love to eventually go Pro IFBB Figure, but right now, I am loving the NPC! In the future, I hope to complete my Master’s Degree in either exercise physiology to go into research and teaching, or recreation management. I haven’t decided yet. J.
In addition to anything fitness, I love to read! I am a big sci-fi and fantasy nerd, loving books by authors such as Mercedes Lackey, Tamora Pierce, George R R Martin, and Anne McCafferey. I also enjoy computer games like World of Warcraft, the Might and Magic series, Baldur’s Gate, and Elder Scrolls games.
