Momentum Nutrition and Fitness is a Seattle based company specializing in individualized nutrition therapy and fun, innovative personal fitness training. Momentum was started in 2001 by Emily Edison, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Personal Trainer. Momentum offers a unique combination of Registered Dietitians and Certified Personal Trainers to provide the highest quality nutrition and fitness services available.
Why a Registered Dietitian?
A registered dietitian (RD) is a professional who provides reliable nutritional information, using evidence-based research to separate facts from fads and translate the lastest scientific findings into easy-to-understand concepts. Dietitians are skilled at integrating the disciplines of behavior modification and nutrition science to help an individual create lasting change.
The initials "RD" after a person's name signify that he or she has completed academic and experience requirements established by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), the credentialing agency for the American Dietetic Association.
To achieve and maintain registration, dietitians must successfully pass a national credentialing exam and accrue a specified number of continuing professional education units every five years.
In many states, the title "Nutritionist" does not indicate that a person is registered with the CDR or that he or she has a formal education in nutrition, a reason to entrust your nutritional well-being only to an RD.
Momentum employs only American College of Sports Medicine or National Strength and Conditioning Certified personal trainers to ensure a sound education in fitness and client safety, meaning clients will benefit from a safe fitness program grounded in the most up-to-date sports medicine principals. These certifying bodies are the gold standard in personal fitness training.
