My WHY for over 35 years has been TO LEAVE PEOPLE IN A BETTER PLACE THAN WHERE I FOUND THEM.
I have served the Chicagoland fitness community for the past 38 years. I was the manager of The Chicago Sweat Shop, one of Chicagos’s first aerobic studios, and my love for group exercise grew to inspire the opening of my own gym, Second Wind. 35 years later, I currently couch high school girls cross country and work with clients to achieve physical, mental, emotional, and social health — regardless of environment, economic status, weight, or current health condition. The goal — SUSTAINABLE WELLness.
Science of Diet. Diets fail at making us loose weight (ask yourself how many diets you have been on) they also make us unhealthy. Constant dieting leads to food and body preoccupation, overeating and bingeing, lower self-esteem, weight cycling, and disordered eating behaviors and eating disorders.
Environmental wellness stems from pleasant and stimulating environments that support well being. It promotes interaction with the planet and also with our personal, home and work communities. I truly hope that you are open to the conversation.
Digital wellness provides leaders and change makers with tools and resources to foster a more positive digital culture. Digital wellness is a new and ever developing niche in personal, corporate and student well being, it is an exciting time to be a part of the discussion.
