A Note from Betsy
If you don’t take time out of your lifestyle to focus on health, you sooner or later will have to make time for illness. Our health is our best and most important asset and better living starts with eating right. As a Registered Dietitian (RD) and personal trainer, my goal is to help you reach your optimal health through healthy lifestyle changes. A “health coach” can help guide you towards these changes by providing you with the expertise and knowledge to organize key areas of your life to facilitate improved health.
I take an all around approach to wellness incorporating nutrition, fitness, and motivation to help individuals stay on track and reach their potential health. Think of me as not only your nutrition and fitness expert, but your wellness coach, cheering you on from the sideline until you reach your health goals. Having a dietitian and personal trainer at your fingertips will allow you a stress free way of handling your health, and professional guidance on implementing and achieving lifestyle changes.
Q & A
What is a RD?
RD=Expert. A registered dietitian draws on their experiences to develop a personalized nutrition plan for individuals. They know and understand the science behind nutrition and are able to separate fact from fads and translate nutritional science into information you can use.
What is a Personal Trainer?
A personal trainer is a fitness professional who individualizes a fitness plan to help clients reach their fitness goals. Fitness trainers work to not only motivate the individual but help them stay on track and reach their potential.
What is a Wellness Coach?
Wellness coaching is about focusing on lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and stress and finding ways to make self-improvement and positive changes in their lives. A wellness coach will not only help you see your potential, but give you the direction and steps to take to accomplish your goals.
What is a Certified Diabetes Educator?
A Certified diabetes educator (CDE) is a health care professional who is specialized and certified to teach people with diabetes how to manage their condition. The CDE is an invaluable asset to those who need to learn or review the tools and skills necessary to control their blood sugar and avoid long-term complications.
