 Hi there! My name is Lindsey Recker, a registered dietitian and recent graduate of Rutgers University’s Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition program. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH and obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Health from Miami University in Oxford, OH. I then moved to Indiana in December of 2019 to complete my dietetic internship at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in downtown Indianapolis while simultaneously finishing up my Master’s degree online.

As a registered dietitian, I enjoy helping others achieve AND maintain their nutrition, fitness, and wellness-related goals through evidence-based interventions and individualized nutrition counseling. I’m passionate about the role of nutrition in chronic disease prevention and management, longevity, and overall well-being.

I look forward to meeting everyone in the NIFS community!

Training Philosophy: Exercise is a highly individualized activity that needs to be altered in order to fit your goals, needs and enjoyment. No matter your current training status, improvements can be made with proper structure. It is never too late to start!

I graduated in May 2013 with a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology from IUPUI by way of my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from Valparaiso University. At Valpo, I played football for four years and interned with the head strength and conditioning coach. I bring the same controlled enthusiasm to your workout that I used each time I stepped into the weight room or football field. My specialty is variety. I have experience with clients from all different fitness backgrounds and levels. I am one of the Athletic Performance coaches for the IUPUI sports teams but also have clients with different ranges of general fitness desires. No matter what you hope to achieve, I will guide you in the right direction.

Training Philosophy: You supply the desire and commitment - I supply the methods, means and motivation.

My role as your personal trainer is to help remove the overwhelming aspects of a fitness regimen so that it becomes an approachable and attainable undertaking. I have extensive experience working with individuals of many different levels of ability, but I specialize in athletic performance and those who want to build upon their athletic edge. If you are looking to get out of your old fitness routine, or want a higher intensity of a workout, I combine my experience with both knowledge in exercise science, as well as a creative approach in general, to develop time-efficient and productive high intensities that match your goals and ambitions.

My passion for strength training began at the age of 14 when I started training in the high school weight room. I received my BS in Exercise Science from the University of Indianapolis in 2019. After graduating from UIndy I began to train kids and adults of all ages in their pursuit of strength. I specialize in Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, and general strength training, as well as athletic performance.
