White Plains NY
I am first and foremost a person in love with science and technology. No matter what I choose to learn in life I always use the scientific method for ascertaining my goals!I graduated from Brooklyn College with a Bachelors Degree in Athletic Training. I also finished my Plan IV requirements and extensive study at Hunter College to be eligible for internship as a Registered Dietician, however I was never able to do an unpaid 9 month long internship, therefore, unable to pursue the RD exam. However, I did get certified as a Health Coach (ACE), Nutrition Specialist (CNS), a Fitness Educator (CFE), a Golf Conditioning Specialist, a Kettlebell Instructor (by Kettlebell Concepts), and a C.O.R.E. Trainer. I’ve also given interactive seminars on nutrition and fitness for healthcare clinics, Morgan Stanley, IBM, Alliance Bernstein, Peekskill Dentistry and the Hotel Union of New York where I had also provided one on one counseling.
I’ve written in the past for many magazines and websites about nutrition and fitness such as: Men’s Exercise, Natural Bodybuilding, and LiveStrong. I appeared on FIOS1 News for an outdoor boot camp segment, ABC NEWS Channel 7 for a home fitness training segment and NEWS 12 Westchester for a New Year’s Resolution home fitness training segment. I had a unique kids fitness DVD entitled Fantastically Fit Kids™ which won the Best Instructional Documentary Award in 2006. Most recently I started instructing as a Mountain Athletics Coach for The North Face. When I beleive in companies I do like to help in promoting them and so I am also a brand ambassador for Harmless Harvest, a fair-trade, Organic and fully sustainable company that produces coconut water from their private farm in Thailand. If you like coconut water this is the best one out there!
Peter Marino in his first bodybuilding contentIn the 1990’s I was a competitive bodybuilder who won the overall Constitution State Championships in CT in my very first competition. I placed in the top 5 for numerous other state and regional competitions for the 5 years I competed in bodybuilding. I still like natural bodybuilding but have stepped beyond it and like to incorporate many types of training in my routines. If I were a ensign on Star Trek I'd be a science officer for sure! Perhaps I'd be a like Spock since I value logic over emotions, however, I'd tap into my human side for more creative answers when logic didn't get the job done.
