Building an online nutritional program that everyone can take something from no matter where they are is the next goal!
Caren Boscaino, a personal trainer, group exercise instructor, sports and weight loss nutritionist and Health Coach lives in Little Silver NJ. She began her college career at The University of Hartford in CT., where she met some of her oldest friends to date. She did transfer back to Long Island, where she grew up and graduated with her bachelors degree in communications from C.W. Post. After graduating she worked for Young and Rubicam in NYC for 5 years, managing creative and clients on several different pieces of business.
Her desire to be in the fitness industry was always present so she decided to get certified in 2001 as a Personal Trainer and changed careers completely. She left Young and Rubicam all together and focused on building her fitness clientele. It started in NYC then after having her first daughter moved to Hoboken, which opened her up to new opportunities. She created stroller classes for new moms (so she can work and stay at home with her daughter). The classes grew, as did her platform for fitness.
After the birth of her second daughter, it was time for the suburbs, which brought her to Little Silver NJ. Once again, she had to build her business from scratch. Caren had worked at the Atlantic Club in Red Bank for over 10 years, built a large clientele in personal training and branched out to group fitness classes, which became her passion. She coached running for half/full marathons from beginners to the novice. She then got her certification in sports nutrition and weight loss and her Health Coaching degree through IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition). At the completion of the IIN degree Caren gained the ability to understand her clients individual health needs, an emotional understanding of her clients in a more in-depth manner than just being physical activity. She learned through all these years working alongside Lori that the “why?” People create unhealthy habits and how to change them is a major key to their members’ success. The growth of the Clean Cut program over the years has been one of her greatest pleasures, watching members “get it” is so fulfilling.
Our Missing Piece, Our Little Slice of Cake, Our Girl that Keeps Us Together
We have added Denise Thompson to our team, part-time, to assist us with all thing’s technology. Denise has gone through our program and has been supporting us and learning “the Clean Cut way” since the beginning. In her past life, she was a Technology Project Manager for Morgan Stanley and we felt adding her technical and organization skills would benefit Clean Cut Fitness & Nutrition as we take our program to the next level. Denise will be focused on the back end of our operation, enabling us to maintain focus on our clients, gym affiliates, and growing our program.
