Carmela Frattasi is National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, educator and fitness trainer with extensive experience in healthy aging and vibrant living. For nearly 20 years she has successfully provided education, guidance and support to help individuals adopt long-term healthy self-care practices that lead to superior health, increased energy and a higher level of personal fulfillment. Carmela’s integrative approach is based on the belief that mindfulness—the quality or state of active, open attention to the present—is what ties the various facets of a healthy lifestyle together. She is an expert in creating safe and effective fitness programs, designing innovative whole-foods approaches to good nutrition, and providing critical tools to manage and reduce stress for her clients.
Carmela works with private clients, teaches group classes, and also designs, develops and delivers diverse corporate seminars, webinars and workshops. These popular forums span a broad, multi-disciplinary spectrum of topics related to fitness, nutrition and stress management, from positive psychology techniques and relaxation tools, to exercise essentials, yoga basics and the dangers of fad diets vs. healthy eating, among others.
Before turning her passion for health and wellness into a full-time profession, Carmela owned a successful corporate travel agency. Many of her travel clients were road warriors, spending significant time away from home, with little opportunity for healthy eating and self-care. Even then, Carmela was booking hotels with fitness centers, and planning meetings that included healthy food options. When traveling with groups, she would often arrange impromptu fitness classes before and after business hours.
In addition to being Wellcoaches certified, Carmela earned a Whole Foods Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from eCornell and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She is an ACE (American Council on Exercise) Personal Trainer and holds nationally recognized Kripalu Yoga and Pilates certifications.
