HEALTHY LIVING INITIATIVES

NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING


Nutritional Counseling is now available – in-person or virtually!
If you are looking for guidance on implementing healthier eating habits, working with our Registered Dietician Nutritionist (RDN) or Nutrition Coach may be just what you need to reach your health and wellness goals.  RDN’s are educated to provide personalized nutrition plans that support your goals to manage conditions like weight, diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Judy Samuels, Precision Nutrition Certified Coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, will give you science based Nutritional Coaching and tips to help you make positive lifestyle changes.  She believes Personal Training can be enhanced with better nutritional choices. It’s about balance, consistency, and what your goals are! Judy will teach you not just about weight loss, but how to include, and feel better about, eating the food and beverages you love.
Sweat and smile! Exercise and eat right to feel your best!
