You’ve reached my about page, typically where you’d read about my degrees, certifications, and qualifications. I’ll definitely get to that, after I tell you a little more on who I really am.
My name’s Baraa. I’m in my twenties, married, and living in Dubai, UAE.
Baking and game nights are my jam, we have a cat named Loki that kind of rules our household, and in another life, I’d definitely have been a psychologist or professional dancer (& if you’ve seen me dance, you’d be glad I didn’t pursue it 😂).
💻 Professional Background
But in this life, I’m a US registered dietician, an ACE certified personal trainer, and certified sports nutritionist. I grew up in Lebanon and Michigan, and graduated from the American University in Beirut. After getting my degree in nutrition, I pursued my passion for exercise & fitness by earning a certification in personal training and master functional training, so you’re definitely in good hands!
I’m also a BIG fan of helping others reach the best and healthiest versions of themselves while dealing and overcoming challenges that come up on this path. If you send me a question on Instagram or by email, I either reply back with an answer or direct you to a blog or podcast to give you the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
🎧 B for Better Health
Speaking of podcasts, I started mine in 2018 and it’s called B for Better Health. If you like long walks, or long drives, I think you’ll love having my podcast along for the ride. It’s even great to play when you’re folding laundry, washing the dishes, or ironing. I release episodes that tackle things like “Can I lose weight from my belly?” and how to put an end to sugar cravings, and lots more juicy stuff like that.
How I Can Help
If you’re looking for a program to help you eat better, train smarter, and live healthier, you’ll find the one for you on my page. I want to design programs that match with different people’s needs & wants at different stages in life, and I’m hopeful lives will change for the better after completing them.
