Latreal has successfully applied NASM’s model to create result-oriented training for youth, plus incorporated most of the flexible programming in her “Get Fit” kid’s workout video to bring quality of life to kids through fitness. She is also is FMS (Functional Movement Screen) and Kettle Bell certified.
