Nutropia is owner and family operated. Founded in 2001 by gym owner and nutritionist James Rappaport and Ranee LaFratta, Nutropia was created on the premise that a healthy lifestyle starts with each and every meal. Combined with a healthy exercise regimen, Nutropia empowers you to achieve your health and nutrition goals. James Rappaport began his business career in the health club industry at the age of 23, when he opened Powerhouse Gym of Bayside. His expertise as a Certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutrition Certification grew significantly, and it wasn’t long before Powerhouse Gym became one of the best gyms in Queens, New York. His passion for fitness and nutrition sparked the idea that has become his livelihood today. Tune in Thursday evening February 25th at 7pm to hear how James made his dream a reality.
