Greetings every one! It’s time to meet another one of your consultants at the new well!

Today you will be meeting me; Nichole! Here are some bullet points about me:

  • I am a 34 year-old native of Grants Pass, Oregon
  • I am married, and have been for 11 years, to the world’s best husband; Sean
  • I have 2 gorgeous children; Andrew (9 years old), and Lesley (4 years old)
  • I have been a musician for 24 years
  • I love Disneyland
  • I love to run
  • Laughter is my best medicine

Now a little wellness history! I became involved with the new well as a client in the spring of 2015. I weighed approximately 300 lbs, and was not living a healthy lifestyle. By the winter of 2015 I had lost about 50 pounds, and decided that I wanted to join the team at the new well as a Certified Wellness Consultant. After my first anniversary of getting hired on at the new well, I was promoted to Wellness Center Manager. Having the opportunity to help people shift their lives in a healthy direction is the most fulfilling “job” I have ever had. I put job in quotes because coming to work doesn’t feel like work. It is a privilege to walk in the doors of the new well every day and spend time supporting people in finding their personal wellness. My personal wellness has had it’s ups and downs, as it sometimes will, and the support I receive from my team and the clients that surround me is paramount to me picking up and continuing toward my goals!

exercise during pregnancy

Are you currently pregnant?  Trying to become pregnant?  The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends exercising at least 30 minutes most days of the week.  Check out the online pamphlet ACOG put out at http://www.acog.org/publications/patient_education/bp119.cfm.

It’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor before beginning any exercise routines, but don’t let being pregnant stop you from starting some form of exercise today.  the new well consultants consultants can help you implement your physician’s workout recommendations to create/modify a workout tailored just for you and your baby.  Be sure to stop by your local center to get your 30 minutes of exercise  in today!

And don’t forget to keep up the exercise routine once you have your new bundle of joy.  We’re here for you before, during and after your pregnancy to encourage and consult you every step (and lunge) of the way!
