Kathy Rosen was trained in Emergency Medicine at Georgetown Hospital after attending the Georgetown University School of Medicine. She retired after more than a decade of practice to devote time to her family. During the hectic and busy time raising three children she, like many of us, lost control of her fitness and weight.
In the spring of 2011 she decided to turn a new leaf. Kathy has over 20 years of experience as a road and mountain biker. So any weight and fitness plan for her revolves around her bikes (she currently has five.) The first ride back after a while off the bike wasn't easy. But, with a little over a year of riding and diet modification, she shed 45 pounds and became a much stronger rider. In four weeks between the beginning of September and October of 2012 she did a 2 day, 120 mile ride to Harpers Ferry from her front door and back, and completed two 100 mile Centuries.
Now an empty nester, she wants to use her new found time to share her enthusiasm and personal experience in cycling, fitness, and weight management with others. Twenty years of riding, with bike handling skills honed on the single track trails locally and out west, in addition to a passion for professional cycling, bicycles of all kinds, and cycling gear have made her deeply and uniquely knowledgable about many aspects of cycling.
The League of American Bicyclists, a national cycling advocacy group and leader in cycling education, recently certified her as League Cycling Instructor (LCI). As an LCI she has access to League curriculum and support for teaching cyclists of all levels using their Smart Cycling education program as a foundation. As a physician she understands physiology and health. Recent experience has taught her current thinking about weight loss and nutrition.
Whatever your goal is on a bike or regarding your fitness or weight management, Kathy would like to help you acheive it!
