Wellness Center Gears Up for Health

Nutrition and exercise experts at the Fauquier Health Wellness Center want to help you kick off a healthy year with the center’s new Gear Up for Health program. The six-week plan will give you the tools you need to make small changes on the way to big ones. Weekly education sessions will tackle topics like “Readiness for Change,” “How to Say Goodbye to Processed Foods,” “Exercise for Health,” “How to Track Your Progress” and “Taking the Stress out of Stress Reduction.”

While learning how to feel and look better, you’ll develop a personalized Master Action Plan, with assistance from Wellness Center dietitians and exercise physiologists. Between lectures, you’ll tackle specific nutrition and fitness challenges designed to motivate and inspire.

LeAnn McCusker, director of the Wellness Center, will join internal medicine physician Joseph David, M.D., for the first talk, "Readiness for Change," on Wednesday, February 4. McCusker says, “Some folks feel sort of obligated to start a new diet every January. But all the best intentions in the world won’t get you where you want to go unless you have a plan."

Week six of the program will feature one-on-one sessions with Wellness Center staff. They'll help adjust your plan and troubleshoot concerns, so you can continue your progress into March and beyond.

The program is available to current and new members of the Fauquier Health Wellness Center. Join in January and receive the Gear Up Program at no additional cost, along with a discount on your detailed fitness assessment and several special gifts. Call 540-316-2640. Last day to sign up is January 31.
