About Rebecca

I have been on my own health and wellness journey for over 25 years. I love sharing the freedom and several benefits of good health with others.

My personal wellness journey began early in life, at age fifteen, developed steadily and continues with each day. I was an athletic, skinny kid, but at about age fourteen gained some weight from eating too much junk food and not getting enough exercise. I started taking walks with the encouragement of my mother, which evolved into consistent five-mile power walks together. I eventually started jogging intervals and doing resistance exercises in my bedroom. I had no equipment other than my brother’s pair of dumbbells. I was really getting into exercise and also began learning how to eat healthier. I remember asking relatives and friends to go to the gym with me. As soon as I could drive, and get my own gym membership, I went on my own and haven’t stopped for over twenty years now. I began performing better as an athlete, winning regional tennis tournaments, and competing nationally, in college. I have also led tennis programs for children and teenagers at various locations, and have participated in formal road races for over twenty years.

I know that in order to reinvent our health a conscious, deliberate effort must be made. I also know it is challenging with excuses, procrastination, justifications and maybe even the fear of failure popping up ready to deter progress and consistency. Deciding to act is a major challenge, but true change comes from just one positive action at a time. No matter the obstacles in your way or how many times you may have tried before without lasting success, I believe the only failure in life is the decision to give up and stop trying!

I feel privileged to have an opportunity to support people as they make behavior and lifestyle changes that can make the difference between sickness and health; being in a rut and freedom; feeling weak and being strong; lacking self-confidence and feeling confident.
