Nutrition Talk


Posted By on Oct 28, 2015

I had the privilege of sitting down with Rex Wellness Center’s dietitian, Shelly Wegman, last week to talk a little bit about my own nutrition habits and diet concerns.  I initially set up my meeting with Shelly to discuss how my diet may be affecting my energy levels, weight loss, and overall health.  Prior to our meeting I was working to stay under a 1200 calorie limit.  I used no information to come to this number other than...

On a regular basis I encounter clients, friends, and acquaintances that talk to me about their journey of fitness and wellness.  I think for the most part, the term “wellness” means something different to each person.  For the purposes of this blogpost I am going to refer to the “Six Dimensions of Wellness” established by Dr. Bill Hettler.  As the term implies, there are six different aspects of overall...

This past week my favorite format to teach was featured on WRAL as a new and upcoming exercise routine.  I had such a great time filming the piece and WRAL did such a wonderful job with the feature.  For those who have not had an opportunity to try Corebarre (or any other type of Barre Pilates style class), here’s a brief rundown of the newest trend in fitness.

Week 2 of 5


Posted By on Jul 19, 2015

Week 2 of 5 and I started it off lighter.  So even though I had a weekend of minimal working out and a couple eating splurges, I was off to a good start.  Monday was almost a repeat of last week, except this time I had 30 minutes to kill in the afternoon so I decided to try Learie’s HIIT class (High intensity interval training).  While I couldn’t stay for the entire class, I got a good sweat and left there feeling...
