About the Author
Upon graduating from Penn State University with a degree in advertising and marketing with a minor in Phys. Ed, Rona moved to New York City to start her career in media sales. After 10 successful years, she decided to change vocations and began working as a fitness trainer after receiving her certifications from Marymount Manhattan College, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). She has been featured on WABC radio and in fitness articles in Avenue and New York Magazines. She moved to Colorado for 5 years, then Florida, where she continued with personal training, as well as writing several columns for a variety of magazines and websites. Rona also began to work on improving her already formidable cooking skills to complement her personal training background. She has continued to write for various magazines and newspapers and has developed her website (www.ronafitness.com) for personal fitness and nutrition. Currently, she lives in Southern California where she has a thriving personal fitness business. She is presently working on her next book, about how to stay fit, healthy (and awake!)when you have an active social life.
