Nicole Rice Certified Personal Trainer – Body Design University, Bachelor of Science in Nutrition – Purdue University, Nutritional Counseling, Meal Plans/ Recipe ideas, Macronutrient assistance Hello! My name is Nicole Rice and I have my bachelor of science in Nutrition degree and am also a certified personal trainer with a specialization in advanced nutrition. When I was 10 years old I learned I had a bunch of food allergies. Ever since then, I have had to pay attention to what I’m consuming, which led me to have a stronger understanding and interest of nutrition from a young age. In my first year of college, I had no idea what I was going for, but I liked to write so I planned on taking this as an elective. The night before classes began, I just knew I had no interest in this writing class, and my mom suggested taking a nutrition class instead. I am so glad I did because I absolutely fell in love with it. I became so fascinated with learning all the details. A month later I enrolled in personal training school as well, because fitness and nutrition go hand in hand! I’ve taken sports nutrition, vegetarian cooking, nutrition for special populations, food science, recipe planning classes, and more. Now that I’ve finished my degree, I am so excited to share this passion with everyone else. Whether you are wanting to lose or gain weight, eat out less, or whatever lifestyle and nutrition goals you have, I am here to help.
