Dr. Oemil Rodriguez is a medical doctor with a fellowship in anti-aging, hormonal replacement specialist, certified personal trainer and nutritionist.
Growing up, this future IFBB Bikini Pro was heavily into dancing and embraced her Lebanese roots by mastering the art of Belly Dancing. After high school, she went on to study medicine at the Universidad Iberoamericana in the Dominican Republic and obtained her Doctor in Medicine Degree in 2005. Shortly after, she moved to Puerto Rico with her husband and continued to grow her education by obtaining her Masters in Healthcare Administration. Despite these accomplishments, she felt that in order to make a significant impact on people’s lives, and help them lead healthier lives, she had to reach them sooner so she decided to obtain her personal training certification. Dr. Rodriguez then went on to obtain certifications in nutrition, weight-loss management and life coaching.
Rather than just telling her patients that anything is possible if you are committed, she decided to show them and embarked on her own body transformation. As a mother of three children and business owner, she had first-hand experience in regards to the constant obstacles that most women face on a daily basis trying to manage a career, a family and a personal life. Despite many obstacles, her determination and commitment persisted which ultimately led to her obtaining her IFBB Pro status in 2016. Since then, she has continuously proven that if you plan ahead and commit to your goals, that there should be no excuses.
