During that time Laura Miranda became a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA) specializing in collegiate athletes as well as heading up the Geriatric Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program at USC. Holding a certification as a Fitness Nutrition Coach (NESTA), she is able to help clients truly master the ‘art of a healthy lifestyle’ by including proper eating as a fundamental component of fitness and weight loss.
