Good health and fitness is not just about exercise. A well rounded health plan involves preventive measures, attention to your body's clues and proper rehabilitation in case of injury or illness. A little education and awareness can go a long way.
Wellness & Lifestyle Consultant and Registered Dietitian Tricia Polenz
Wellness is a lifestyle that supports our physical and emotional well-being. A healthy lifestyle results in numerous personal and professional benefits. I believe everyone is entitled to experience them.
Helping others achieve optimal wellness entails creating highly customized lifestyle modifications reflective of the unique wants, needs – and hopes and dreams – of each of my clients.
As your wellness and lifestyle consultant I would like to develop a relationship with you based on mutual respect and trust. Together we will create lifestyle modifications that are practical, sustainable and life enhancing.
In addition to weight management, my lifestyle consultations can include esteem building, time and stress management and personal image consultation.
