  • Exercise and wellness resources

    The more you move, the better you'll feel

    Exercise, nutrition and wellness are vital parts of a healthy life. The hard part is to actually make the changes necessary to get you on the path to better health.

    Your health and wellness routines and habits are especially important whether you are:

    • already healthy and want to stay healthy or
    • not in shape but want to get in shape or
    • if you are:
      • a cancer survivor,
      • recovering from a heart condition, or
      • have a physical disability or chronic medical condition that makes working out in a traditional fitness center or health club difficult

    Exercise has been shown to help prevent a recurrence of breast cancer and decrease the risk of a second stroke. It can also help decrease fatigue, help you regain strength, and spur you to be more active.

    Eating well gives you the fuel to exercise and heal.

    And general wellness routines can help you better manage stress, set goals and eliminate or reduce barriers to wellness.

    We can help you move toward your health goals!
