RDN, LD, IFNCP


Cindi Lockhart, RDN, LD, IFNCP, is board-certified as an integrative and functional nutrition practitioner with over 27 years in professional practice. She has trained nutrition, fitness, and medical practitioners throughout most of her career yet maintains a personal practice with clients/patients as she believes that the only way she can effectively educate and inspire other practitioners is through her own practical experience.

Cindi completed her dietetics degree at the University of Illinois – Urbana and her clinical internship in Boston at Harvard’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital. She then went on to her first clinical job in Chicago at Rush-Presbyterian – St. Luke’s Medical Center. While working in the clinical setting in hospitals during her early career, she also became a certified personal trainer and trained clients on the side. Although conventionally trained as a dietitian, Cindi quickly realized that a conventional approach did not fulfill her philosophy of optimizing one’s health and function. She felt then that it was vital for her to pursue an integrative and functional approach to nutrition and medicine. Over the years, Cindi has achieved multiple certifications and accreditations from Metagenics from their First Line Therapy program as a Certified Health Care Provider, from Wellcoaches as a Certified Health & Wellness Coach, from the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) for Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice as well as their Hormone module, and from the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy (IFNA) as a Certified Integrative & Functional Nutrition Practitioner.

In addition to the above, Cindi co-created the nutrition philosophy for Life Time Fitness as well as their D.TOX program. She also implemented their corporate RD platform. Cindi has extensive expertise in women’s health issues including hormonal imbalances, infertility, thyroid dysfunction, autoimmunity and gut health. Cindy also works closely with men and children of all ages. Cindi believes strongly in the critical aspect of the practical application of her teachings. She excels at simplifying difficult educational topics for enhanced learning and providing a clear explanation of why her approaches are recommended, as well as what their outcomes will be.
