Ruthann Clark is a local certified personal trainer and a certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant at WORLD GYM in Peachtree City , Georgia . She was invited to return this year to participate in the Independent Living Program for teens departing the foster care system in the state of Georgia . Over 300 teens attend the workshop in Atlanta , Georgia . The Independent Living Program is design to assist youth in the transition and build upon independent living skills. These are the youth in the foster care system that have made it through high school graduation, GED programs and vocational schools with many obstacles to overcome. Ruthann feels this is a rewarding part of her profession, to have the opportunity to encourage teenagers to healthier lifestyle choices.
