Wellness Begins with a Lifestyle of Healthy Nutrition
Empowered to a healthier you.
Wellness and health are words we often hear, the magazine racks are full of diet and exercise magazines; Google “lose weight fast” and you’ll get millions of results; many TV shows and news reports talk about latest discoveries in nutrition and fitness and health alerts. But what is wellness? What does “living a healthy lifestyle” really mean?
Start by Starting
It starts with you. You must determine what you want and where you want to go. And it starts with starting. Keep your eye clearly fixed on your goal, but take it one step at a time. Life is full of work and family and many things to get done. But as you go through your day, do you get enough activity that results in fitness? We consult with you to find ways to work meaningful physical activity within your day. We also help you implement good eating habits, one change at a time.
“Lifestyle coaching empowers you to learn how to make small, healthy changes that you can do for the rest of your life!!”
Belief is a Powerful Force for Change
Our Own Worst Enemy
No matter what your fitness level, however over weight you are, whatever your self-image—what you believe to be true about who you are and what you can be, you are right. How does that Henry Ford quote go? “Whether you believe you can, or believe that you can’t, you are right.”
Change your Belief, Change your Life
Lifestyle Wellness is for Keeps
Fact is that the negative beliefs we hold about ourselves are no more powerful than the positive beliefs we can choose to embrace. Through Lifestyle or Wellness Coaching you can learn to confront your negative self beliefs, face the facts about your habits, and embrace positive beliefs of your true self.

Fitness Results Depend on Good Nutrition
Research in nutrition and fitness shows that up to 80% of a person’s fitness training results are directly related to their nutrition or lack thereof. The fact is that we eat too much overall, we eat not enough of the nutrient-dense foods, and we move too little. That combination is deadly!
Total Wellness Starts with Quality Nutrition
Start with the basics of good sound nutrition practices: like drinking lots of water, increasing vegetable and fruit consumption, eat only whole grains and foods, and cutting down on unhealthy fats and sugars. We help you develop an eating program that you can easily implement for the rest of your life. It’s all about options, balance, and trade-offs.
It simply comes down to learning to eat regular nutritious food and creating a balance with the “treat” foods that allows you to enjoy life. You can do this and at the same time reach and maintain your fitness and weight loss goals. Some people want to be vegetarians or eat all organic. That is a great way to live; however, many of us do not want to live this way. That’s where Total Fitness comes in.
Nutrition Plan Designed with Your Individual Needs
Depending on your fitness or weight loss goals and needs, we will create a sensible nutrition plan with easy to follow guidelines. For example, if you have three months to bring your cholesterol levels down before the doctor puts you on medication, then that will be our initial focus. If you want to lose weight, that will be our focus. Or if you are training for a marathon or triathlon, our focus will be on nutrition to optimize sports performance.
With the proper nutrition strategy you can:
- Hasten results with the stimulus of exercise
- Improve health and athletic performance
- Reduce the risk of disease and illness
- Increase energy levels
- Favorably alter body composition
