Essential Steps to Really Achieving your Nutrition Goals

Date:  Wednesday, August 16 Time: 12 – 1 pm

LocationFitRec, Room 221

Presenter:Rachel Reynolds

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I know what to do, I just have to do it,” yet months (and maybe even years) go by without lasting changes?  In fact, most people KNOW the principles of healthy eating and are genuinely MOTIVATED to eat healthier. So why is it so hard to DO? The answer is in our habits and the power of these habits are rarely considered in behavior change interventions. This workshop offers an introduction to the science of habit formation, tools to build awareness of habits that undermine your goals, and the essential steps to actually achieving your nutrition goals.

Private Group Exercise Classes

Pictured are staff from the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at an after school outdoor bootcamp.  The Wellness Coordinator at the Horace Mann collaborated with Michael Lagomarsine, the Fitness Director at Fitrec, to set up this class once a week at the school in Allston.  Mike met the staff after school and put them through an outdoor exercise class.  This included body weight strength training and ropes, hurdles, and ladders to keep the teachers working hard.  It was a program enjoyed by all.
