Founder of DIY Active (an Always Active Athletics LLC subsidiary)
Fitness has always been a huge part of my life – hence me being a former AFAA personal trainer and founder of this site. That being said, science was really my first calling! I graduated from the University of Florida with an M.S. I take all of that writing experience and bring it directly to our articles and fitness routines. I won’t just tell you if something works, I will provide the science on why it works!
I started DIY Active to provide as much free information to allow everyone to have the ability to get healthy and fit right at home! We must be doing something right because we’ve had the chance to appear in SHAPE, American Fitness, TRAIN Magazine, RedBookMag, Muscle & Strength, SheKnows, and many other awesome publications!
Today in our modern hectic world, everyone is short on time! To combat this, we try to make weight loss planning as easy as logging onto your computer and getting a quick at-home workout you can do in 15 minutes! If you want to stay up-to-date make sure to check us out on Facebook!
Jennifer Cohen Katz
Registered Nutritionist & Founder of FreshBalanceNutrition.com
Is a registered dietitian/ nutritionist certified in professional culinary arts. She works with those who desire to be energetic, vital, and strong by balancing their hormones naturally through nutrition. Her specialty is teaching you how to eat so that your body can naturally detoxify itself and balance the many hormones necessary to allow you to relax and feel comfortable in your own body.
She believes that each person needs to be a partner in their own health care. Optimal nutrition is the place to begin before visiting the doctor, taking medication, or even before starting an exercise program.
“I’ve always enjoyed being active, cooking, and eating! This lead me to study nutrition and culinary arts. I’m my own guinea pig when it comes to health biohacking. By this I mean identifying the nutrients that will allow your body to perform optimally during your workout, during your presentation at work, or during your daily battle to avoid inflammation and disease. I love showing clients how to incorporate the foods that contain these power nutrients into fueling smoothies, colorful salads, and powerhouse meals to enjoy while nourishing and supporting the metabolic processes going on in their bodies.”
