Foundation Wellness offers a range of wellness services, and we bring these services to you. We offer on-location personal training and small-group training; group-exercise classes; biometric screening; "lunch and learn" events; seminars; and more. Whether you have a wellness center on property, or no dedicated space at all, we can help devise a plan to get you and/or members of your business or organization exercising, eating well, and taking other positive steps toward optimal health.
When it comes to physical activity and its role in preventive health, we place this front and center in our programming and offer a wide variety of options. We at Foundation Wellness believe in a holistic approach and never lose sight of what social scientists refer to as the seven dimensions of wellness. These dimensions of optimal health and vitality are each essential and intertwined. In this vein, we don't just offer mind/body classes such as yoga; we also offer ergonomic and mindfulness instruction in a variety of settings such as in the workplace and in the garden, so that individuals have yoga "off the mat" moments as well. (Good posture, breathing, focus, and balance aren't just important while in class.) In addition to yoga teachers, we have FW instructors experienced in pilates, tai chi, circuit, sculpt, Zumba, kickboxing, and other group formats. All of our group-exercise instructors and personal trainers are certified and insured.
At FW, we place as much emphasis on what a person puts into his or her body as we do on the output side of things. Exercise and nutrition go hand in hand. There's no shortage of nutritionists out there, both "certified" and self-proclaimed. These individuals often dispense advice that is not only incorrect, but depending on your nutrition needs, can even be dangerous. However, in most of the U.S., there is one professional designation that licenses nutrition professionals to prescribe detailed diet plans and practice medical nutrition therapy. It is the gold standard for both safety and effectiveness. Registered dietitians (RDs) are licensed, allied health professionals, who are trained to assist clients and patients as they sift through myriad claims made in the popular media and dubious fad diets promising easy, quick results. This is why Foundation Wellness only contracts with RDs for all nutrition-related projects.
