Finding Your New Normal: Getting Healthy One New Habit at a Time

Saturday, March 9th, 1:00pm – 4:00pm
The River Valley Club – Lebanon, NH
Instructor: Amy Fortier
Course fee: RVC Members $40, Non-Members $65

This workshop will help you get started on incorporating healthy habits into your daily life and reinforce those you already know. I’ll share tips to help you set goals and create successful strategies for weight loss. Part of the workshop will be a round table discussion with others who have lost 50, 75, and over 100 pounds! They will inspire you and explain how they did it. You’ll get solid, practical advice on nutrition and fitness that you can use right away. We’ll also delve into the mental and physical road blocks you may encounter and we’ll spend time helping you plan for your specific needs and lifestyle. By the end of the seminar, you’ll emerge with dozens of ideas for living a healthier lifestyle and have useful tools that cater directly to your personal situation. Space is limited!
