Sparta - Jennifer O’Ferrell, a trainer at the Sparta Athletic Club, has been certified by the National Board of Fitness Examiners (NBFE). O’Ferrell is among the first in the fitness industry to obtain this prestigious national recognition. NBFE credentials bridge the gap between personal trainers and the medical profession, as board-certified trainers are perceived more as professionals. Doctors, who in the past may have suggested to their patients the benefits of exercising, can now, with confidence emphasize the need to work with a nationally certified NBFE professional. This also opens the lines of communication with health insurance companies, as a patient can submit a supervised exercise prescription for potential reimbursement. Sparta Athletic Club is located at 115 Sparta Ave. For information, call 973-729-9141 or go online to SpartaAthleticClub.com.
