She attended multiple certification courses in Bootybarre™, learning directly from the founder Tracey Mallet. In addition to her fitness training, Tasha is also a certified nutritionist with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition which enables her to provide her clients with comprehensive coaching in both fitness and nutrition.
