Healthy Body + Healthy Mind = Healthy Life

You hear it at the beginning of every year, “New year, new you!” And I’ll admit, I’ve jumped on that bandwagon more times than I can count. But this time, instead of trying some fad diet or the new workout trend, I’ve found something I think will stick. Cooper Aerobics.

I’ve tried to reset to a healthier lifestyle so many times and I always start out great and then life happens. And before I know it, I’m eating more bad stuff than good, lying on the couch instead of working out … you know how it goes. So this time I decided to do something different. I decided to get help!

I’ve partnered with Cooper Aerobics so I can get on the right lifestyle path once and for all. In theory, it would be great to just drop a few pounds and move on, but what I really want, is to be healthy. But as many times as I’ve tried to get myself on a good eating plan and workout schedule, I just have a hard time maintaining it on my own. Which is why I went to Cooper.

Cooper Aerobics is more than just making you look good on the outside. They work on the inside as well! Cooper has a clinic, a fitness center, a spa … they even have a hotel! Their staff is comprised of trained professionals who really care about helping you get healthy, not just selling memberships like at a gym. These guys really know their stuff.

I’ve been working out with an amazing trainer, Mary and she’s really helped me to develop a fitness program that works for me. I’m not a runner, so my fitness plan won’t include running a 10k! But I love spin and yoga so those are the classes that are part of my fitness plan. And if I want to change things up a bit, Cooper has tons of other classes and activities available. And on days I really need to reset my mind more than my body, I really love walking the trail at Cooper and seeing all the beautiful scenery!

I’m also working with my nutritionist, Cynthanne. I was a little hesitant at first because I LOVE food, and didn’t want someone to tell me to eat chicken breasts and broccoli at every meal. But Cynthanne has really worked with me to design a healthy eating program that not only has food that I like, but meals that I can prepare in the midst of my busy schedule! Plus, we meet biweekly so that I can make sure I’m staying on track and we can make changes as we go along if something isn’t working.

In the coming weeks, I’ll be blogging more about what I’m doing at Cooper so you can follow along on my journey. And who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to make a few changes in your life as well!

xo,
Caroline
