            “To change is to live, not to change is to die” 

                                                 That is my motto and I can help you join my circle.

I’m Ritta Wakim and I’m a self-motivated, detail-oriented, and accomplished senior wellness professional with a track record in sports, fitness, personal training, and nutrition.

I’m a certified coach and expert in various disciplines including Taekwondo, Self-Defense, Cross-Fit and Kettle Bells. Over the past few years, I have been decorated with several medals. I was also featured on CNN and I made it to the final round of the reality show “Ton of Cash”.

I follow a holistic approach to reach the perfect balance of fitness, nutrition, positive thinking, and motivation, which will help you enhance and sustain your performance and achieve your ultimate goals. I believe in results and the word ”impossible” doesn’t exist in my dictionary.

With over 25 years of experience in all the areas of well-being, martial arts, and life coaching, I created the internationally successful RITTASPORTS concept that provides total body and mind conditioning and nutrition expertise via private and small group trainings. I work with all types of clients, regardless of their age, nationality, sex, or individual fitness level.

A business computer graduate, a certified professional make-up artist and a former Lebanese Tae Kwon Do champion, I have broadened my horizons, improving my skills and knowledge about Health in general, Sports and Nutrition in particular.
