Husky alum, Rudy Inaba, pictured third from left, returned to campus as a guest lecturer for current Exercise Science majors, courtesy of faculty member, Dr. Joe Andreacci. Inaba is currently the Director of Nutrition & Exercise at Cenegenics.
Mr. Inaba graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2006 with his BS in Exercise Science. He then attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to earn his MS in Exercise Physiology. After approximately six months of working as a personal trainer, he was hired as an Exercise Phyiologists at the Cenegenics Medical Institute. This company is focused on Age Management Medicine with “100% personalized physician-developed age defiance”. He is currently to Director of Exercise and Nutrition for the rapidly growing company. When he was first hired, Cenegenics had 6 sites in the United States. Now there are 22 centers across the globe, including recently onboarded London and Athens (Greece, not Pennsylvania).
In addition, Cenegenics now has a non-profit arm, the Age Management Medicine Education Foundation. Rudy coordinates all exercise and nutrition assessments and monitoring. He also interacts with the executive team regarding development and marketing of neutraceuticals and future directions of the company in general.
During his seminar, Mr. Inaba shared his experiences and life lessons with the many undergraduate and graduate Exercise Science students in attendance. He also discussed future internship and career opportunities for BU students with Cenegenics. This discussion was best illustrated by Mr. Inaba’s recent experiences with BU Exercise Science MS graduate Austin Zechman. Austin interned with Mr. Inaba at the Las Vegas flagship in 2017 and then, this past summer, accepted a position with Cenegenics at their center in Dallas, TX. On Friday, November 9th, Mr. Inaba came back to campus for a resistance training workout with some students and also attended Dr. Kyle Beyer’s Introduction to Exercise Science class to share his experiences with freshman Exercise Science students.
